Be yourself

Home care compliance and individuality are closely related. Here we take a look at four unique patient personalities and highlight basic essentials that should have a place in their medicine cabinet.

Groovy “green” patients

For those free spirited, tree-hugging patients interested in environmentally friendly, organic home care products, these options should satisfy even the most ecological dental needs.

Sensitive Care Toothpaste from Tom’s of Maine

The foaming properties of glycyrrhizin (from purified licorice root) replace the need for SLS or an SLS alternative. The toothpaste contains potassium nitrate to reduce tooth sensitivity. Xylitol, gentle glycerin and organic aloe are soothing while the natural flavor oils leave the mouth feeling clean and fresh.

Impressionable kids

For children, establishing good oral healthcare habits early on is key. These products should help encourage positive daily routines for healthy teeth.

FireFly Children's Toothbrush from Dr. Fresh Inc. 

Using a 60-second musical timer, the FireFly Boppin Barnyard Musical Timer Toothbrush encourages children to brush their teeth. With the press of a button on the handle, the tune “Old MacDonald” plays for one minute, the amount of time recommended to completely brush one row of teeth. Children can press the button again and brush their second row of teeth after the song stops. Other themed brushes, including the Spiderman Light-Up Toothbrush, are available.

They want it white

Have patients seeking pearly white teeth? Who isn’t, really? These products feature the latest whitening technologies and will have your patients showing off a dazzling, brighter smile. 
NiteWhite ACP from Discus Dental

NiteWhite ACP combines amorphous calcium phosphate, potassium nitrate and fluoride to provide sensitivity management and enhanced whitening results. It also comes in a Turbo formula worn overnight that whitens a reported average of six shades in three nights. DayWhite ACP also is available.

High-tech types

If it’s the newest device or the latest advancements in dental home care options your patients are seeking, look no further than these mind-blowing products.

Oral-B Triumph Toothbrush from Procter & Gamble

Designed to motivate patients to step up their home care routine, the Oral-B Triumph power toothbrush comes with an on-board computer that provides positive feedback and guidance for patients. It also uses oscillating-rotating technology and features an advanced brush head.

Back to the basics

No matter their personality type, all your patients need the essentials-toothpaste, a toothbrush and floss-for home care success. The Smile Goods Patient Paks from Practicon make it easy to give your patients the tools they need, while promoting your practice at the same time.
