Care for Your Smile by Choosing the Right Toothpaste

In order to choose the right toothpaste for your smile, you need to know what you’re looking for, and we’re happy to tell you what that is! As you examine the oral hygiene isle at the store, we recommend that you look for and choose a tube of toothpaste that has the following:

ADA approval
If the paste has been approved by the American Dental Association, it means that the product has passed vigorous exams that test for safety and effectiveness. This is a great way to know if you can trust the toothpaste to do its job.

Fluoride
Fluoride is a very important mineral that nourishes and strengthens your smile each day. If you use fluoride toothpaste, the mineral will be added to your teeth and your smile will have the strength to fight off bacteria, decay, and infection throughout the day. Fluoride toothpaste can also remove plaque from your smile, which could prevent oral diseases in the long run.

Preferred comfort and taste
If you have sensitive teeth, it is best to use toothpaste that caters to sensitivity. That way, you can clean your smile and you won’t experience any pain or discomfort while doing so.

To make brushing a fun and enjoyable experience, you can brush with flavored toothpaste. There are many different flavors available today, like mint, bubble gum, and cinnamon, and we encourage you to choose a paste that will fill your mouth with the flavor you love.

Whitening
Whitening toothpaste is not a necessity, but it is available if you wish to brighten your smile. If you would like to know what product is best for your teeth, please feel free to ask your dentist during your next dental appointment.
