German term or phrase: several dental/oral care terms
Zahnseifen, Zahnreinigungswässer, Zahnwässer, Mundwässer (mouth washes! - but what is the difference?)
Zahnhölzer, Zahnsticks, Zahnstocher -

this is a list of patented products and the products are so similar. Yet I do have to come up with one translation term for each.
Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
