We all know that men take just as much pride in their appearance and, dare we say, their hygiene, as women do - maybe they just don't want to admit it as openly. However, the crew over at AskMen.com not only recognize this, they fully embrace it. Most importantly, they recognize that the key to overall health is proper dental health. After all, "since the mouth is considered the gateway to the body, how clean we keep it defines our appearance
," and, moreover, that "achieving optimal oral health is key to all facets of life."
We certainly could not agree more with this sentiment! To elaborate further on this and encourage the general male population to get excited about oral health, AskMen.com put together their compilation of the best oral hygiene products for men. We could not be more in line with their standards and criteria in product selection; they point out that just as it's vital to be aware of the chemicals and other harmful substances we could put into our bodies via nutrition, this can just as easily be done through poor dental health product choice. They advise to "keep your eyes peeled for ingredients such as citric acid, fluoride, phosphoric acid, propylene glycol, saccharin, and tobacco, and citric acid—each can attribute to a number of oral problems like cavities, cold sores, gum disease, tooth erosion, and of course a bad case of halitosis."
Indeed. In the running for their selection of the best oral hygiene products for men we were honored to have our Dr. Tung's Stainless Steel Tongue Scraper featured. Here's what they wrote:
