Have you ever felt overwhelmed by how many choices of toothpaste there is in the supermarket?
There are literally dozens of toothpaste on the shelves so it can be quite confusing which one to buy.
Well here are some tips that will hopefully help you to make a better informed toothpaste decision.
Toothpaste companies make various claims when it comes to cavity protection, gum health, breath freshness, sensitivity and whitening just to name a few.
When it comes to fighting cavities fluoride plays a vital role. Everything else is a personal preference.
If you suffer from sensitive teeth, using a sensitive toothpaste can be of great benefit. There are a few brands out there so it’s a good idea to try a few and see which one works best for you.
When it comes to whitening toothpaste keep in mind that long term use has the potential to cause sensitivity. This is due to the fact that a lot of whitening toothpastes contain an extra gritty component that wears away at the enamel of your teeth.
No matter what the brand, you should always select a toothpaste with the ADA seal of approval.
