Why your home routine matters
Oral health is an important part of your overall health. Brushing and flossing regularly at home — and with the right tools — is the best way to:
- Strengthen your teeth
- Fight cavities and plaque
- Prevent gum disease
How BrushSmart can help
Dentists recommend brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and replacing your brush heads every three months. In addition, flossing at least once a day is the most effective defense against gum disease, which is tied to other health conditions and can harm your immune system.
BrushSmart is a new oral wellness program, exclusively for Delta Dental enrollees, that offers great products to help you improve your dental care routine. We’ve partnered with Philips Sonicare to identify products from our BrushSmart store tailored to your specific needs. Here are some recommendations that could be right for you:
For seniors who have or might be at risk of having:
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
We recommend a toothbrush with a setting that takes extra care of your gums:

+Gum Care brush head
For individuals with conditions related to gum disease, such as:
- Cardiovascular disease
We recommend an electric toothbrush with a special Gum Care mode, and a tool to make flossing easier:
