As you scan the oral hygiene isle at the store, make sure you choose a tube of toothpaste with the following:

Approval from the American Dental Association
If you choose a tube of toothpaste that has been approved by the ADA, that means that the paste has undergone and passed a variety of examinations that test for safety and effectiveness. All trustworthy pastes will have this stamp of approval.

Fluoride
It is very important to use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a beneficial and vital mineral that gives your smile the strength it needs to survive. The fluoride in the toothpaste strengthens the tooth enamel and removes plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, which prevents gum disease in the future. If you wish to maintain, improve, and protect the health of your chompers, fluoride toothpaste is the best choice for you.

Preferred flavor and comfort
Brushing your teeth can be an enjoyable experience if you use flavored toothpaste. There are many flavors of toothpaste available in the oral hygiene world today, including mint, bubble gum, and cinnamon, so go ahead and pick your favorite flavor of toothpaste off the shelf! If you have sensitive teeth, you can also use toothpaste that caters to sensitivity. That way you will feel good and comfortable while you clean your teeth!

Whitening
There are also whitening toothpastes available on the shelf, and we encourage you to purchase one if you wish to brighten your smile. As you do so, make sure you use a paste that not only whitens your smile, but also cleans and strengthens your smile as well.
