No matter which toothpaste you decide to use for your smile, make sure it has been approved by the American Dental Association. If you choose a paste that has the Seal of Acceptance, you know you are using the best product possible, because it has been tested for safety and effectiveness.

Now when it comes to the different types of toothpastes that are the most beneficial for your pearly whites, we strongly recommend using one or more of the following:

Fluoride Toothpaste

When it comes to choosing an all-around great toothpaste, fluoride toothpaste is your best option. This paste nourishes and strengthens your teeth, as well as helps them fight off tooth decay. With all the acid and bacteria your teeth are exposed to each day, this is an important protection tool.

Tartar Control Toothpaste

Tartar is a harmful substance that destroys your smile and attacks your gums. Tartar generally forms after the plaque on your teeth is left untreated. If the tartar is also left untreated, it could result in gum disease, which is a dangerous disease that could lead to loose and missing teeth. So, to help prevent the disease, as well as control the tartar on your smile, tartar control toothpaste is a great option.

Sensitivity Toothpaste

If you suffer from having sensitive teeth, sensitivity toothpaste is the best option for you! This paste usually contains potassium nitrate or strontium chloride, which are chemical compounds that block the channels in your teeth that lead straight to the nerves.

Whitening Toothpaste

Whitening toothpaste is a great option if you’re interested in brightening your smile. With the abrasive particles that are contained in the paste, your teeth will be polished and the stains will be pulled off their surfaces each time you brush. However, some toothpastes only have whitening solution in them, rather than cleaning solution. So, make sure you pick a paste that offers both benefits.
