Choosing the Right Toothpaste

Posted on 8/22/2022 by Dr. James A. Krippaehne
Choosing the Right ToothpasteWhen it comes to cleaning your teeth, some kinds of toothpaste are better than others. The specific ingredients in toothpaste enhance enamel strengthening, stains removal, and alleviation of dental sensitivity.
You will want to take your time and explore your options before deciding on your preferred toothpaste. Seeking advice from our dentists on the best toothpaste for your specific dental needs is beneficial.

Avoid toothpaste that has been linked to health issues.

Whitening toothpaste contains abrasive ingredients designed to remove stains and polish teeth; thus, those with gums and teeth that are extremely sensitive should steer clear of using them. Some people may experience irritation or an increase in their level of dental sensitivity when using these kinds of toothpaste, but overall, it's safe to use and is effective. If you are self-conscious about the shade of your smile yet have particularly sensitive teeth, you should discuss in-office whitening alternatives with our dentists.

Approval by the ADA

Dental products must bear the seal of approval of the American Dental Association before they are purchased. The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs will have found sufficient evidence to support the product's safety and efficacy before its approval. If the toothpaste fails to bear the ADA stamp of approval, it lacks sufficient tests to verify its quality.

A decent toothpaste is an important element of your regular oral care practice and flossing. Use a toothbrush paste, gel, or powder to make brushing more effective. The fluoride in the toothpaste will help remove the plaque that builds on your teeth and gums when you eat.
