As you may have heard, there are a few things you’ll need to do to keep your teeth healthy and strong. For instance, it’s important that you remember to brush and floss your pearly whites every day, but did you know picking the right toothpaste could help you? Similarly, do you know how to recognize the best toothpaste for you?
As you may know, some toothpastes have fluoride in them, which can strengthen the outer layer of your teeth. This can help you avoid issues like cavities. Our dentist might also suggest a prescription toothpaste that contains more fluoride. Still, even though fluoride can prevent decay, you should exercise caution when giving it to children because fluoride shouldn’t be swallowed. Fortunately, there several fluoride-free choices that can benefit you.
If you are dealing with sensitive teeth, there are other options that might benefit you. Luckily, these mouthwashes may also whiten your teeth since they usually include whitening agents. If you’re only interested in whitening your teeth, there are other toothpastes you can choose.
