Choosing the right toothpaste


Posted on 8/22/2022 by Rho Family Dentistry
[[[pic:Blue-toothbrush-with-blue-toothpaste.jpg|200||right|TPimgRight|Choosing the right toothpaste]]There exist several options in the industry concerning the choice of toothpaste. Some toothpaste brands claim to have whitening ingredients, while others claim to help with tooth sensitivity. Others claim to prevent dental caries, while others boast of offering fresh breath.

Our expertise advises you to ensure that whichever brand you choose has a fairly good amount of fluoride. Fluoride strengthens teeth and promotes remineralization. Other than the fluoride component, all these factors about the choice of toothpaste are based on your preferences.

Whitening toothpaste


You may be wondering whether to pick the toothpaste brands that claim their kinds of toothpaste have whitening components. Even though the kinds of toothpaste do contain whitening ingredients, these ingredients are way too little to achieve observable results in a short period. Moreover, continued use of such brands will lead to tooth sensitivity.

Charcoal toothpaste


Charcoal kinds of toothpaste have recently become very popular. Our dentists, however, caution against the use of charcoal products on your teeth. Charcoal is very harsh and will cause wearing out of your enamel, leading to sensitivity. In addition, there is no scientific proof that the use of charcoal toothpaste or powder will improve your dental health.

Toothpaste for sensitivity


Tooth sensitivity kinds of toothpaste have shown positive results and are safer to use. Suppose you purchase over-the-counter toothpaste for tooth sensitivity, and you do not experience satisfactory results. In that case, please stop by our offices for a prescription from our dentists on which toothpaste to use.

Rinsing after brushing


Our experts strongly advise against rinsing after using a high-quality toothpaste containing loads of fluoride. You should avoid rinsing to allow the fluoride and other helpful ingredients in the toothpaste to get absorbed by your teeth and gums. Call us now for advanced advice on the best toothpaste brands.
