Each type of toothpaste can have many benefits, which is why choosing the right toothpaste for your smile can be extremely overwhelming! However, we are here to help make the decision a bit easier.

To start off, we recommend choosing a paste that has been approved by the American Dental Association. That way, you know that you have the best product possible because it has undergone studies that have tested for safety and effectiveness.

Second, if you would like a professional suggestion based on your specific oral health situation, we recommend calling our office and scheduling an appointment. Dr. David Browne will be happy to examine your smile and inform you on the best toothpaste that will help you the most.

Third, we recommend using one or more of the following pastes:

Fluoride toothpaste
Fluoride toothpaste is the best option when it comes to toothpaste. This is because the fluoride in the paste nourishes and strengthens your teeth as well as protects them from tooth decay. If you want a strong, healthy, and protected smile, fluoride toothpaste is the best option for you.

Tartar control toothpaste
Tartar control toothpaste is a great product that reduces your chances of developing gum disease. This paste deeply cleans your smile by removing the plaque that sticks to the surfaces of your teeth. If the plaque does not get removed, gum disease can take over your smile and ultimately cause loose and lost teeth, which is why tartar control toothpaste is so handy and beneficial.

Sensitivity toothpaste
If you experience pain or sensitivity to hot or cold foods or drinks, you have sensitive teeth and sensitivity toothpaste is here to save the day! This toothpaste contains potassium nitrate or strontium chloride, which are chemical compounds that offer relief by blocking the pathways that lead to your teeth’s nerves.

Whitening toothpaste
Whitening toothpaste is a great option if you desire a whiter, brighter smile. This paste contains chemicals that polish your teeth and pull the stains from their surfaces each time you brush. However, some whitening pastes do not have cleaning solutions in them, so make sure you pick one that whitens as well as cleans your smile.
