At Parkcrest Dental Group, we want you to enjoy great dental care in our offices and at home. A wide variety of home dental cleaning systems is available, making it possible for regular people to bring home many of the dental care tools that their dentist uses in the office. In today’s blog post from the team at Parkcrest Dental Group, we take a look at the dental care tools available in-home dental cleaning systems. Read on to learn how to take great care of your oral health at home.
Home Dental Cleaning Systems: What’s in the Box?
There are many home dental cleaning systems to choose from, but when you open the box you will find they come with many of the same tools. Here are some recommendations from the Parkcrest Dental Group for professional tools you can use at home.
Electric toothbrushes, sometimes called sonic toothbrushes, are a great way to ensure thorough cleaning every time you brush. They feature very rapidly spinning or vibrating brush heads which scour the surface of your teeth and gum line to remove plaque and bacteria.
Many home dental cleaning systems come with water tools for cleaning in between teeth and around the gum line. Sometimes called water flossers or water picks, these tools spray a small but powerful jet of water into the hard-to-reach areas of your teeth. Similar to the tool found at your dentist, water tools are a good way to improve your daily dental care.

The interdental brush is a helpful tool that can accomplish the same task as flossing: thoroughly scouring between teeth to remove stuck on plaques. An interdental brush is like a toothpick with bristles on all sides. They come in different sizes and shapes, and they are easy to use, so they make a great addition to your daily routine.
Dental Mouth Mirror
The dental mouth mirror is a simple tool, but it is very valuable for helping you get a complete picture of your dental health. A familiar tool from the office at Parkcrest Dental Group, a dental mouth mirror is a small round mirror with a long handle that you can use to see every nook and cranny in your mouth.
Sometimes called a tongue scraper, these tools are very helpful for reducing bad breath and plaque in your mouth. They are used to scrape away the white film that appears on the tongue, which is actually plaque. Tongue cleaners are not widely used, but they are recommended by the pros at Parkcrest Dental Group.
