You know the routine. Brush twice a day and floss once. These are great habits, but what if we told you there was more you can do for your oral health? As dental science progresses, new products are being developed that will change the way you care for your teeth. To help you out with your daily routine, we’ve created a list of new and exciting dental technology that might save you from serious dental issues. They are worth the investment:

Steripods — Did you know that while your toothbrush sits in the bathroom, it accrues quite a bit of bacteria? Steripods are clip-on caps that fit over the bristles of your toothbrush, keeping the brush clean and using active vapors to eradicate the bacteria.

VioLight Zapi
— These egg-shaped devices deep clean your toothbrush by using ultraviolet rays to kill 99.99% of germs. It sounds like it’s from a science fiction book, but they are real and ready to buy.

Water Flossers — Used along with regular floss, these are fantastic for cleaning any extra debris stuck in between your teeth and on your gums.

CloSYS Oral Rinse — This alcohol and sugar-free mouthwash will fight bacteria and leave your mouth fresh all day.

Whitener Strips — You can use whitener strips to bleach your teeth white and make your smile glow.
