How to Know Which Toothpaste is Right for Your Teeth?

Posted .

Did you know that toothpaste has existed in some form for more than one hundred years? At first, these flavorless toothpastes came in a jar. Today, there are many more choices you could consider—but with the number of options available to you, how can you choose the toothpaste that’s best for your needs?

As you may know if you’ve ever bought toothpaste, there are several options you should consider. For instance, have you heard that some toothpastes may help you prevent tooth decay? Toothpastes with enamel in them can actually strengthen your enamel, which is the protective layer of your pearly whites. Still, your child shouldn’t swallow fluoride, which means you shouldn’t give them toothpaste with fluoride in it. To avoid this problem, we recommend giving them fluoride free toothpaste.

You could also choose toothpastes that can whiten your teeth. As you might already know, there are several toothpastes that can help you deal with your sensitivity. Fortunately, you can find toothpastes designed to help you keep your teeth clean and to help with sensitive teeth.
