How Important Is Finding the Right Toothpaste?
Posted on 7/7/2020 by Tropic Dental
Choosing the right toothbrush and toothpaste is vital in maintaining good oral hygiene. Brushing is the most important element of good dental hygiene (aside from visits to our office, of course) and the kind of toothpaste you use determines how effective each brushing session is.
The combination of the right toothpaste and toothbrush results in fewer dental problems because it effectively manages to take out tiny food particles and plaque from teeth. This also helps in reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum diseases.
A normal toothpaste contains multiple ingredients that, when clubbed together, work effectively to clean your teeth. Toothpaste also contains a small amount of detergent which creates foam, making it easy to take out food particles and plaque. Some toothpaste also contains an abrasive which helps take out stains. Fluoride is also a common ingredient in toothpaste which is beneficial in protecting the tooth enamel. There are also some kinds of toothpaste which are designed specifically to address issues like sensitive teeth and gingivitis.
Common Types Of Toothpaste
Here are the most common kinds of toothpaste available in most stores around the world.
Tartar Control Toothpaste
While toothpaste alone cannot take off tartar, once you have it removed by our professionals, we highly recommend investing in tartar control toothpaste that can prevent the re-accumulation of tartar.
Teeth Whitening Toothpaste
Some people tend to have yellow stains on their teeth due to lifestyle choices. This is not appealing to look at, but it can be reversed slightly with the help of a good quality whitening toothpaste.
Toothpaste For Sensitive Teeth
If you have sensitive teeth and gums than using toothpaste that contains a specific combination of agents to help reduce the sensitivity. While sensitive teeth need to be addressed by one of our professionals, using toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth will allow you to brush your teeth confidently without the same type of pain. It will also help you enjoy cold and hot beverages without feeling a stinging sensation in your teeth.
There are also various other kinds of toothpaste available. However, to carefully evaluate which toothpaste is best for you, you should pay a visit to one of our professionals today.
