What Type of Toothpaste is Right for Me?

dentist in fairfield ct | Fairfield County DentistThere are so many different types of toothpastes and toothpaste brands on the market. So how do you know which toothpaste is right for your smile health? Here are a few toothpastes you might want to test out.

I want to brighten my smile.

If you have yellowing teeth and you are looking to brighten your smile, look for a whitening toothpaste! Whitening toothpastes contain mild abrasives that polish teeth and prevent additional stains.

I have sensitive teeth!

Do you have sensitive teeth? First, you should make sure that you don’t have a cavity! If your tooth sensitivity is still bothering you, toothpastes like Sensodyne can help lessen the pain while still keeping your teeth clean and healthy.

I want to protect my teeth against cavities.

Toothpaste should help prevent tartar buildup on your teeth. Choose a toothpaste with tartar protection that keeps plaque from hardening on your teeth and prevents cavities. Crest Tartar Protection is one of the ADA-approved cavity protecting toothpastes out there.

I want to use natural products.

There are a few toothpaste brands out there that are all-natural, herbal toothpastes that are just as effective as antimicrobial brands. Just make sure that the toothpaste has the ADA seal! Tom’s of Maine is one brand that offers ADA approved toothpaste options.

In addition to brushing and flossing your teeth for two minutes, two times a day, you should also be scheduling bi-annual dental cleanings.
