Choosing the Right Toothpaste

A lot of folks ask us what toothpaste we recommend. Our answer? Any fluoride toothpaste that will help you maintain a good oral health routine!

If you want to try multiple types of toothpaste, ask us for samples at your next appointment! We know you have a million and one choices facing you in the toothpaste aisle, and it can be hard to figure out what’s best for you.

 

Most people, however, can use any toothpaste that has the ADA (American Dental Association) seal of approval. This seal means that the toothpaste contains fluoride, has the right amount of abrasiveness (not too little and not too much), and has been shown to be both safe and effective for intended use.

If you have any sensitivity to dyes, preservatives, or certain ingredients, opt for a toothpaste that is free of those! Just make sure it has fluoride. We can’t say it enough: fluoride is your best form of cavity prevention!

 

Occasionally, you may need a stronger dose of fluoride under special circumstances. Ask us about fluoride treatments that we can apply at your appointment to strengthen enamel and prevent future bone loss!
