Have you gone to the store recently and wondered, how do you select a toothpaste? Were you amazed, and perhaps a little overwhelmed, at all of the options that are available to you? If so, we would like to help you determine which one could suit your needs. And if you haven’t experienced this sensation yet, we want to help you avoid it all together.
Unless our dentists tell you differently, you should always look for a toothpaste that has fluoride and is a flavor that may be appealing to you. Having fluoride in your toothpaste could be important because fluoride can strengthen your tooth’s enamel and might help prevent injuries and cavities.
There are many different kinds of toothpastes that claim to accomplish different tasks. Certain types offer help with tartar control while others offer aid with sensitive teeth. Similarly, many products proclaim that they can help you gain whiter teeth or fresher breath. Truly, it may be nearly impossible for one person to research and evaluate all of the toothpastes to ensure their claims were just.
Instead, you may want to look for is the ADA Seal of Acceptance. This means that the manufacturer submitted their product to the American Dental Association for independent testing to prove that the toothpaste is effective and safe. The ADA tests the product to make sure that it does what it promises before their approval can be given, so you can rest assured that your confidence in this product may not be wasted.
So, how do you select a toothpaste? You can start by asking us any questions about your dental health. And a great way to get started on your dental health is to schedule an appointment for a dental cleaning and exam in Waco, Temple, or Gatesville, Texas.
