Which Type of Toothpaste Should I Choose?

Posted .

Toothpaste has come a long way since it was first mass-produced. Toothpastes today are made to meet your every oral hygiene need and they come in a variety of flavors. However, because there are so many types of toothpaste available, it can be difficult to choose the right one for you or your family. Dr. Bradley Bath and our team are happy to recommend a toothpaste that will aid you in your dental health needs. Some common toothpaste types include:

Fluoride Toothpaste

Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel and helps protect the teeth against decay. Fluoride toothpaste is recommended for both children and adults. Adults can especially benefit from fluoride toothpaste if they have dry mouth or if they have a medical condition that makes them more susceptible to tooth decay.

Toothpaste for Kids

There are toothpastes available that are made just for children. Children’s toothpaste comes in many tasty flavors and colors. If your child is under two years old, choose a toothpaste that is safe to swallow. These toothpastes are fluoride-free, have a mild flavor, and don’t contain preservatives or artificial colors.

Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth

If eating cold foods or drinking hot beverages hurts your teeth, toothpaste for sensitive teeth may be a good choice for you. Toothpaste for sensitive teeth provides long-lasting relief.

Whitening Toothpaste

If you wish for a radiant smile, there are toothpastes for that. You may wish to consult with our dentist in Evansville, Indiana, about which whitening toothpastes are most effective.
