How often do you stand in the toothpaste and mouthwash isle and choose one of the seemingly endless number of brands forced upon you? Here are a few options from Dr. Cariann Champagne to narrow down your choices.

• Crest Pro-Health All-Around Protection Paste
• Colgate Total Advanced Deep Clean

Adult Mouthwash:
• ACT Anticavity Fluoride Rinse
• Colgate Phos-Flur Ortho Defense
• Crest Pro-Health FOR ME Rinse

• Colgate Extra Clean Toothbrush
• Oral-B Indicator ContourClean Toothbrush
• Curvex Toothbrush

These brands follow Dr. Cariann’s recommendations of ADA-approved, fluoride-containing toothpaste and mouthwash. Steer clear of mouthwash that contains alcohol because it dries out the mouth. Dr. Cariann’s personal favorite is Crest toothpaste and ACT mouthwash.

And for the baseball dads or soccer moms, CustMbite MVP Athletic Mouthguard is ADA approved. So, no need to worry about kids knocking a tooth out.
