At the end of the day, you will find you’ve practically become a veritable expert on all things related to promoting healthy teeth and gums. However, you may occasionally come across a stone you have left unturned, some detail that has eluded you! If that seemingly simple detail includes which toothpaste to buy, rest assured, this is a common mishap (and we are ready to offer helpful information). Try our Q’s and A’s for guidance.

Questions and Answers: Toothpaste

Question: What do I do if I’m using an effective toothpaste but I just don’t like it? Should I try to get used to it, since I haven’t been having any oral health problems?

Answer: Of course not! You have a lot of options for effective toothpaste choices. Take a look at what you’re using and look for another brand, consistency, or flavor that you like and that offers the same features and main ingredients.

Question: Is there a way to shop for toothpaste so I know I’m going home with a product that’s going to help me keep my smile as free of plaque as possible?

Answer: Yes. When it comes to oral health concerns regarding the efficacy of a product, you can trust the American Dental Association (ADA). Find the ADA Seal of Acceptance and you know it’s been tested.

Question: Should I use toothpaste that has fluoride in it or toothpaste that does not contain it?

Answer: You should always use toothpaste with fluoride to offer yourself the best oral health protection. It’s an integral part of protecting you from tooth decay.
