Choosing the perfect toothpaste can be difficult at times, but we are happy to help you! As you walk down the oral hygiene isle at the store, it is best to look for and choose one or more of the following pastes:

Fluoride Toothpaste
Fluoride toothpaste is a great product that cleans your smile as well as strengthens and nourishes it. Fluoride is an essential mineral that our smile needs to survive, and you can find this mineral in fluoride toothpaste. As you brush your teeth, the fluoride will protect your teeth and strengthen your tooth enamel, which will help prevent tooth decay. Fluoride will also reverse the early stages of acidic damage.

Tartar Control Toothpaste
Plaque and tartar are substances that are extremely harmful to your smile. If they are not removed, they can begin to develop gum disease, which is a condition that can lead to bleeding and swollen gums as well as loose and lost teeth. Tartar control toothpaste is a great product that cleans the plaque and tartar off your smile. However, this paste will not replace the techniques provided at the dental office.

Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth
If you have sensitive teeth, sensitivity toothpaste is the best option for you. It will help you finally enjoy any cold and hot foods and drinks that currently give you pain when you consume them. This toothpaste contains chemical compounds that block the pathways that lead to the tooth’s nerves, which will help you relieve your tooth sensitivity.

Whitening Toothpaste
Whitening toothpaste is a great product for those who wish to brighten their smile. Many of these pastes provide successful results, but please remember to choose a paste that whitens as well as cleans your smile. This is very important. The whitening solution in the toothpaste will polish your teeth and will lift the stains from your smile.

Each of these pastes are very beneficial and successful; however, it is very important that no matter which paste you choose to use, make sure you pick a paste that has the American Dental Association seal of acceptance. This approval proves that the product has passed tests that tested for safety and effectiveness. For more information, call our office today! We are happy to help you.
