How to Select the Perfect Toothpaste

Toothpaste

Shopping for toothpaste can be an overwhelming experience. With hundreds of brands on the market, how do you know which toothpaste is perfectly suited for your family? Does it have to be ADA approved? Is fluoride an important ingredient? What do I choose if I want whiter teeth? The answers to all these questions can help you narrow down the selection and begin the process of determining the toothpaste preferred by you and your family. Discover what “tartar control” really means and if buying the off-brand at the dollar store is really safe, using these tips from experts in family dentistry.

Toothpaste with Fluoride. If your head is spinning from all the toothpaste choices out there and you are looking for something basic and simple, always remember that the most important ingredient when choosing a toothpaste is fluoride. Fluoride makes your tooth enamel stronger and reduces acid damage. It is also known to reverse early stages of acid damage by remineralizing your teeth.

Toothpaste for Tartar Control. Tartar control is now a common benefit of toothpaste and is often found in conjunction with fluoride. Even individuals staunchly dedicated to their dental care have a layer of bacteria on their teeth known as plaque. Plaque buildup that is not routinely removed turns into tartar, a hard-to-remove deposit that can lead to gum disease. Tartar control toothpastes are designed to reduce the incidence of plaque and  tartar.

Toothpaste for Whitening. A brighter, whiter smile is among the most sought-after effects in toothpaste today. A variety of whitening toothpastes are available and while they don’t contain bleaching agents, these toothpastes contain abrasive particles that polish the teeth and remove stains from the surface of the teeth.

Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth. Many people experience uncomfortable sensations when their teeth are exposed to hot or cold temperatures. The dental care industry has designed toothpastes that include chemical compounds that reduce tooth sensitivity by blocking nerve pathways attached to the teeth. Most individuals experience relief after four weeks of consistent use in their dental care routine.

Choosing the Right Toothpaste for Your Family

Sometimes you need more information to decide which toothpaste will best meet the needs of everyone in your family. Top experts in family dentistry recommend these tips for choosing the right toothpaste for your whole family:

  • Choose American Dental Association (ADA)-approved toothpastes.
  • Promote good dental care by purchasing a toothpaste that will encourage your family members to properly care for their teeth and gums. Ask which features are important to them in a toothpaste and purchase a product that suits their needs.
  • Read labels carefully to avoid “imposter” toothpastes made in foreign countries. These products may not meet safety guidelines established by the FDA and could be harmful to you or your family.

There is a wide variety of toothpaste options to choose from, so try something different until you find the right toothpaste for your family. And don’t hesitate to ask a dentist at Advanced Dental Care of Orlando for a recommendation.
