Do not waste money on following leads for that “best toothpaste” on the market. The answer is that there is none. However, there is a best toothpaste out there for you.
All about You
Toothpastes vary in ingredients, tastes, purposes, you name it. So first you need to know what category you fall under. What are your specific needs or desires?
Dry mouth- for those looking for dry mouth relief, there are types of toothpastes designed to stimulate or mimic saliva which adds moisture to the mouth.
Whitening toothpastes-contain abrasive particles or chemicals that effectively polish the teeth or cling to stains and help pull them off the tooth surfaces. Look for whitening pastes that contains peroxide for your best chance to bump your shade brighter.
Tartar control- helps prevent the unsightly build-up by using a chemical that clings to tartar and allows it to be dissolved away.
Sensitivities- sensitivity paste helps tooth sensitivity by blocking pathways through the teeth that attach to nerves inside the teeth.
Holistic/all natural-for those who prefer no chemicals entirely, there are plenty of all natural toothpastes. Look for the ones that say “re-mineralizing”.
Once you figured out the category you fall under, you can move on to try different tastes and brands to figure out which is best for you.
Additional Facts on ADA and Toothpaste
All ADA accepted tooth pastes contain fluoride and for good reason. Fluoride makes your tooth enamel stronger and less likely to suffer acid damage. It can also reverse the early stages of acid damage by re-mineralizing areas that have started to decay.
