Product Roundup: Taking care at home. In this month’s product roundup on home care products, we offer up just a small-scale showcase of the many products available.

Walk into your local pharmacy or super store and head to the oral care section and you’re likely to find several shelves with a wide variety of products, including manual and power toothbrushes, toothpastes, floss, interproximal brushes, mouthrinses, and more.

The selections can be overwhelming for your patients, who trust you to offer advice and to answer questions about which products are best for their oral care regimen. Keeping up with the constantly updated designs, formulations, and features can also be a tough task for practitioners.

In this month’s product roundup on home care products, we offer up just a small-scale showcase of the many products available.
