What’s the Best Toothpaste for You?

Toothpaste

The “best” can mean different things to different people. This is true when it comes to choosing your favorite restaurant or the perfect toothpaste for your family. There are some basic facts that can help you exclude a few of the toothpaste varieties out there, but beyond that it comes down to personal needs and preference. Regardless of whether you want to keep it simple, achieve a brighter smile, reduce plaque, or you simply need something to reduce sensitivity, there is a toothpaste available for you. Learn which features can best suit your needs and the needs of your family from some of the top experts in family dentistry.

Fluoride Toothpaste. 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 is a naturally occurring mineral that was added to toothpaste more than 50 years ago to combat tooth decay and reduce the occurrence of cavities. Fluoride helps protect your teeth, making your tooth enamel stronger and reducing acid damage. It is also known to reverse early stages of acid damage by remineralizing your teeth.

Tartar Control Toothpaste. Tartar control has become a common feature of toothpaste and is often found in conjunction with the ingredient fluoride. Even individuals staunchly dedicated to their dental care have a layer of bacteria on their teeth known as plaque. Plaque deposits that are not removed on a routine basis can harden and turn into tartar, a hard-to-remove deposit that leads to gum disease. Tartar control toothpastes are designed to reduce the incidence of plaque build-up and combat tartar with ingredients such as pyrophosphates and zinc citrate, as well as an antibiotic called triclosan that addresses certain bacteria of the mouth.

Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth. Many individuals may experience uncomfortable sensations when their teeth are exposed to hot or cold temperatures. The dental care industry has designed a toothpaste that include ingredients, such as potassium nitrate or strontium chloride—chemical compounds that reduce tooth sensitivity by blocking pathways through the teeth attached to nerves of the teeth. Most individuals experience relief after four weeks of consistent use in their dental care routine.

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

Choosing the Right Toothpaste for Your Family

Catering to your needs is one thing, but sometimes a full household requires a little 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 perfect toothpaste for the whole family:

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

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