Don’t worry! Many other patients can empathize with your current situation because there truly is a wealth of seemingly wonderful (and seemingly identical) options out there. Let us help you with this portion of your dental hygiene shopping.

The Deciding Factors

The sea of toothpastes you see may very well all offer the important factors you need for good dental hygiene. However, that doesn’t mean you should just grab any old paste and head to the checkout line. There may be some products that aren’t as good as others or that have not been tested for their ability to protect your smile. To help you out, we’ve got some things for you to remember:

  • Remember to check if the toothpaste has the ADA Seal on it. This is your signal that it’s going to protect you.
  • Remember to look for one key ingredient: Fluoride. You need this.
  • Remember to consider whether you will like the product. If you don’t like paste but like gel, buy gel. If you prefer a particular flavor, choose it.
