You and your family members deserve a strong and healthy smile, but the only way to achieve that goal is to regularly clean your teeth with the proper oral hygiene tools. Unfortunately, there are many products out there that claim to be beneficial when they are not. So, to help you find the best products on the shelves, Dr. Anoosheh Shahkarami and our dental team would like to share some tips with you. Today, we would like to talk to you about selecting the best toothpaste.
First, look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Approval on the toothpaste’s package. This label verifies that the toothpaste is effective in your oral hygiene routine and safe for your smile. The label should be on the front of the box.
Second, choose fluoridated toothpaste. This is important because fluoride can help nourish and strengthen your smile. If you brush with fluoride toothpaste every morning and every night, there is a chance your teeth can remain healthy and strong because fluoride can fight cavities and enamel erosion.
Third, select a toothpaste that fulfills the needs of your teeth. If you have sensitive teeth, pick desensitizing toothpaste. If you have discolored teeth, pick whitening toothpaste. If you have weak teeth, pick a paste that has extra fluoride.
