Toothpaste is a very important part of your tooth-brushing regimen. Brushing your teeth would not be complete or done correctly without it. Are you one of those people who is a little overwhelmed when buying new toothpaste? To aid you in your quest, our dentist and team are more than happy to educate you about the different varieties of toothpastes and what they can do for your teeth.
Toothpaste for Children
If you are choosing toothpaste for your young children, there are many varieties that come in fun colors and flavors. An exciting toothpaste can help your child become thrilled about brushing his or her teeth. If your child tends to swallow toothpaste, choose a child toothpaste with no fluoride.
A great thing to look for in your toothpaste is fluoride. This mineral strengthens the tooth enamel and helps protect it from decay. Fluoride is helpful for the teeth of both children and adults, so fluoride toothpaste is widely recommended by dentists. Fluoride toothpaste is especially useful for those who have dry mouth or who are prone to cavities.
If your teeth are sensitive to hot or cold temperatures, your dentist may recommend that you use desensitizing toothpaste for a period of time. This type of toothpaste is offered with or without fluoride.
Do you wish for a whiter smile? Whitening toothpastes are available that give an extra boost to the brightness of your smile. Ask Dr. Cody Skinner and Dr. Derrick Schop about which whitening toothpaste is best for you.
