Dental Hygiene

How do you choose your toothpaste?

The number of options you have when you buy a tube of toothpaste can be overwhelming.

Should you go for tartar control? Fluoride? Both?

And don’t forget to think about whitening toothpastes or formulas with all-natural ingredients.

Here are some tips to help you make a good choice when you’re confused as you stand by the toothpaste section!!

1.The most important ingredient to look for when choosing toothpaste is fluoride. It helps to reduce tooth decay by protecting your teeth from acid in your mouth.

2.Make sure it is BDA approved. All toothpastes earning the BDA seal contain fluoride — the most important ingredient in any toothpaste.

3. Consider your needs and the needs of your family members. For people trying to instill good oral hygiene habits in your children, why not choose fruit-flavored toothpastes with sparkles to entice them to brush their teeth?
