Understanding Your Toothpaste Choices

dca-blog_successfully-selecting-the-perfect-toothpaste

Your dental care choices are important, and one of the most critical is your toothpaste selection. Toothpaste polishes your teeth and cleans away bacteria and plaque that can lead to gingivitis, tooth decay and bad breath. It contains a number of different ingredients that perform various functions. Detergents create foam to help lift food particles and plaque. Mild abrasives polish away stains, and fluoride strengthens teeth and prevents cavities. Different types of toothpaste are designed for different needs, including dental hygiene for kids, so there is no one-size-fits-all formula.

Following is a quick guide to various toothpaste types to help you choose:

  • Whitening toothpastes remove stains with mild abrasives or chemicals.
  • Fluoride toothpastes strengthen teeth by remineralizing them to counteract the effects of acid. Most commercial toothpastes contain fluoride, and many dentists recommend them for patients without a fluoridated public water supply.
  • Tartar-control toothpastes can’t remove tartar, but they can prevent it from accumulating.
  • Toothpaste for sensitive teeth creates a barrier to help prevent irritants from reaching sensitive, exposed nerves.
  • Natural toothpastes are designed for people who prefer all-natural ingredients to chemicals. They may or may not contain fluoride.
  • Children’s toothpastes make dental hygiene for kids more appealing. They usually feature colorful, kid-friendly themes and mild flavors.

Tips for Proper Brushing

To get the most from your toothpaste, you must brush properly:

  • Brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush at least twice a day.
  • Hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle tilted towards your gums.
  • Brush for two full minutes, using gentle, circular strokes.
