PSA: October is National Dental Hygiene Month. And since brushing your teeth is a non-negotiable, we've rounded up some luxury oral care products that make dental hygiene a little more exciting. Because let's face it, brushing and flossing aren't the sexiest steps in your routine.
But what was once a boring category of perfunctory products, new brands are giving the oral care space a modern makeover with high-tech brushes, chic toothpastes, pretty bottles, and some completely new products -- all of which are designed to make you want to take pride in your teeth. From yummy flavors of coconut oil-infused floss to a very fancy app-connected toothbrush, allow these items to help you create healthier oral care habits.
One thing we love about Quip is how easy they make dental hygiene. After your initial order, Quip will ship a new brush head and tube of toothpaste at the dentist-recommended interval, every three months. You can choose from chic colors like silver and rose gold, too.
If regular old mint toothpaste has been feeling a little tired, mix it up with this tasty mango iteration. There's still mint to leave things fresh, but the mango makes it fruity and fun. Plus, the packaging will blend in with your skin care.
This "paste booster" is like a gentle exfoliator for your teeth! You dip your toothpaste-topped toothbrush in the powder, shake off excess, and brush as usual. Kaolin and bentonite clay help brush away stains for a brighter smile; recommended usage is once or twice a week.
This toothpaste is just a few bucks more than your average buy, but so much cooler. It's specifically formulated for nighttime use, hence the adorable name 'dreamomille,' and uses relaxing chamomile for pre-sleep calm, and charcoal to absorb stains.
You probably didn't know mouthwash could be as cool as Olas's is. Dr. Christopher Perez, DDS, collaborated with famed chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten to elevate the taste profile of this ultra-chic mouthwash. The ocean-derived ingredients include sea salt and seaweed extract (which helps cut down on plaque), an exclusive marine bio-active complex to strip away harmful bacteria, and calcium and magnesium, both of which are known to promote healthy teeth and gums.
This cult-fave floss comes in countless fun flavors, but that's only one reason it's so popular. The floss itself is made from 500+ polyester threads woven together in such a way that shredding almost never happens. Vegan wax helps the floss maneuver in tight spaces, and the coconut oil from which it gets its name is soothing for gums.
Who knew tongue scraping could be so chic? Not only is copper aesthetically pleasing to look at, but it also has pure anti-bacterial elements that help reduce bacteria buildup on your tongue and keep breath smelling fresher longer.
Hello's new collection uses ultra-trendy hemp to help keep things moisturized and prevent dry mouth while spearmint keeps things extra fresh. Also nice? The tasty flavor is free of harsh ingredients like triclosan and artificial sweeteners (yes, most commercial oral care products contain these).
The fanciest toothbrush in town does not come cheap, but it works — and comes with rave reviews from just about everyone. That's because it has the ability to coach you on your brushing technique via app connection and a ton of other crazy high-tech settings.
A fresh take on an ancient oral hygiene practice, Terra & Co's oil pulling mouthwash makes it easy to incorporate this Ayurvedic method at home. It uses activated charcoal and coconut oil to reduce bacteria and inflammation, prevent bad breath and dry mouth, promote healthy saliva production and keep the gums moisturized.
Want a brighter smile in a week? Use this duo from Smile Direct Club twice a day for seven days. First, you brush on the minty gel from the pen, then you sit with the blue LED accelerator light for ten minutes (it plugs into your phone), and take way too many selfies of your blue-lit mouth.
This wild mint-flavored toothpaste is mild but refreshing. The differentiator is hydroxyapatite — the same mineral that makes up our teeth and bones works to help restore tooth enamel and is a safer alternative to fluoride.
Twice offers two toothpastes (one for AM and one for PM) sold as a set. The AM formulation is an invigorating wintergreen and peppermint flavor to help kickstart your day, while the PM formula has vanilla and lavender. But the real difference comes from the fact that this brand, co-founded by Lenny Kravitz, gives 10 percent of its proceeds to the GLO Good Foundation, which works to provide quality dental care, education, and supplies to underserved communities.
