The most common product when we think of dental and oral care is of course, toothpaste. Recommended for use twice a day with a toothbrush, toothpaste not only helps to remove food and plaque but also strengthens your enamel and prevents cavities.
Whilst toothpaste won’t generally put a foot wrong, it can get harder to pick the right one for yourself when there is such a variety on the market. To help you decide on the best paste for your teeth, we have combined some of our personal favourites.
The more natural the better is definitely the way with products these days. To avoid all the nasty additives and artificial ingredients hidden in conventional toothpastes, opt for Weleda’s Salt Toothpaste or the Keeko Black Mint Super Clean Charcoal Toothpaste.
For an alternative option, Hismile now offers a set containing a day and night toothpaste. While the morning option focuses on providing longer-lasting protection from bacteria and stains, the night toothpaste works on removing stains and detoxifying teeth.
Whether you prefer a more natural or whitening-focused product or the latest craze of charcoal-infused options, we know you will be well on your way to a brighter smile with the products below.
For us here at Monde, bad breath is a definite no-no now that we have re-entered society and are engaging in more social events. If you are like us and want to put your best and freshest breath forward, then mouthwashes may be where you find your answer.
While they definitely don’t override toothpaste in being an everyday necessity, there is a place for them in your dental and oral care routine.
Get a handle on killing the bad bacteria with some of the products we have found most helpful. With everything from the mundane usuals to the more recently developed.
For an alternate method of removing toxins from the mouth, which was founded on the ancient practice of oil swishing, the Black Chicken Oral Swishing Oil may be just for you. Packed with natural oils, you will find it to be just as effective, if not more, than the more common ones on the shelf.
Floss and Maintenance Products
How many times have we heard the dentist tell us the importance of flossing, and yet how many times do we consistently forget it is an everyday requirement? We believe it would be more times than we could ever count.
So, unless you are one of the very few that remember to do the two-minute task every single day, let us remind you once again.
Prevent plaque buildup and achieve a more pristine clean smile with some of the more advanced flossing tools now on the market.
Not messing around by any means, the Panasonic Portable Water Flosser means business. In a travel size, the compact tool is great for when you are on the go.
Using a rapid, targeted jet of water to move through the teeth and gums, you will feel like you are at the dentist without the trauma when using this product.
While we are on the topic of creating important oral hygiene habits, tongue scraping is also rising in popularity. Associated with removing harmful bacteria and helping the overall smell of your breath, tongue cleaning scrapers are effective and an ‘au naturel’ way of showing you are making your oral health a priority.
The most basic tool we all have in our bathroom cupboards or beside the sink is the good old faithful toothbrush.
Whether you prefer an electric toothbrush or the basic manual option, there are plenty of both available on offer.
It has been said in the past that electric toothbrushes can be more effective due to them being more successful at removing plaque and bacteria without you having to scrub too hard.
But don’t stress if the price is what is putting you off, as manual toothbrushes definitely still have a well-deserved place when it comes to oral and dental healthcare.
Get serious about scrubbing with the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart Toothbrush thanks to the personalised in-app coaching when connecting your brush to an app on your phone.
To stick with the manual brush and just get the job done without the added at-home assessment, the Keeko Soft Charcoal Bristled Toothbrush is a biodegradable product looking after you and the planet.
An added tip when finding the perfect brush for your teeth and gums is to also not select something with bristles that are too hard. While a good scrub is great for the teeth, softer bristles are kinder to both your teeth and gums.
Once you have your oral and dental hygiene covered, reward yourself by achieving a perfect Hollywood smile.
While whitening may be seen as a superficial aspect of dental care, it is proven to have benefits in boosting your self-esteem and helping your mental health.

The Moon Oral Care Kendall Jenner Whitening Pen is also a sure way to maintain the supermodel smile while serving its purpose as a luxe addition to your self-care routine.
If you are a bit hesitant about trying some at-home whitening kits due to the possibility of causing more harm than good, the Mr. Bright Kit may be just the place to start. As a hydrogen-peroxide free kit, they maintain results without the nasties.
