A lot of folks ask us what toothpaste we recommend.
Our answer? Any fluoride toothpaste that will help you maintain a good oral health routine!
We know you have a million and one choices facing you in the toothpaste aisle, and it can be hard to figure out what’s best for you.
There are toothpastes that focus on whitening, sensitivity, cavity prevention and gum disease.
Most people, however, can use any toothpaste that has the ADA (American Dental Association)
seal of approval. This seal means that the toothpaste contains fluoride, has the right amount of
abrasiveness (not too little and not too much), and has been shown to be both safe and effective
for intended use.
If you have any sensitivity to dyes, preservatives, or certain ingredients, opt for a toothpaste that
is free of those! Just make sure it has fluoride.
We can’t say it enough: fluoride is a great tool for cavity prevention!
We do offer fluoride varnish at a discounted rate if you don’t have insurance coverage. Ask us about it at your next checkup and teeth cleaning.
Another big factor in cavity prevention is the acidity level in your mouth. For some adding baking soda to your brushing routine can make a significant difference. For others, adding CariFree products to your oral hygiene routine is another helpful tool in cavity prevention. We sell these products in our office, ask us about them at your next appointment.
