When it comes to choosing the perfect toothpaste for your smile, there are many options available. However, how do you know which one to choose? Well, we are happy to help you! While you are browsing the oral hygiene isle at the store, it is best to look for and choose one or more of the following toothpastes:

Fluoride Toothpaste
Fluoride toothpaste is a great product that cleans your smile as well as strengthens and nourishes it. Fluoride is an essential mineral that our smile needs to survive, and you can find this mineral in fluoride toothpaste. As you brush your teeth, the fluoride will protect your teeth and strengthen your tooth enamel, which will help prevent tooth decay. Fluoride will also reverse the early stages of acidic damage.

Tartar Control Toothpaste
It is extremely important to scrub your smile and remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth each day, and you can do so with tartar control toothpaste! By removing these harmful substances, your smile is more likely to fight off gum disease. The chemicals in the toothpaste also help prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar on your teeth. Also, if possible, please use a tartar control toothpaste that also contains fluoride. That way your smile will get cleaned as well as strengthened.

Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth
If you have sensitive teeth (for instance, if you experience discomfort when eating or drinking products that are hot or cold), then sensitivity toothpaste is the best option for you. This paste contains potassium nitrate or strontium chloride, which are chemical compounds that block the pathways of the teeth that lead to the nerves.

Whitening Toothpaste
If you wish to have a whiter, brighter smile, whitening toothpaste is the best choice for you. However, please make sure to choose a paste that not only whitens, but one that also deeply cleans your teeth. The whitening toothpaste contains abrasive chemicals that effectively polish the teeth and lift the stains from your smile.

Now, before you check out of the store, make sure the toothpaste you choose has the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal proves that the product passed tests for safety and effectiveness. With this approval, you know you have the best product possible.
