Did you know that there’s a “right” and “wrong” toothpaste?

Well, sort of. The thing is, there are a ton of different toothpaste options available, and there are some that are better for you than others. A lot of factors go into choosing the right toothpaste, but Dr. Chris Fagan and the team here at Brush Pediatric & Family Dentistry in Enid, Oklahoma have put this post together to help you pick the best toothpaste for your oral health needs.

So sit back and take a look at these simple tips that’ll make a drastic impact on your oral health.

Pick one that fixes your problems

Take a walk down the toothpaste aisle, and you’ll see dozens of brands of toothpaste advocating that they help with one specific problem. From fresh breath to whitening and gingivitis prevention, there’s seemingly a toothpaste for every oral health need.

If you know you have certain oral health issues – like bad breath or excessive plaque buildup – then you want to pick a toothpaste that addresses those issues directly. This ensures that you’re doing as much as possible to keep your mouth in great shape.

Look for the ADA Seal

The American Dental Association Seal of Approval is an important thing to look for on all dental products, but especially with toothpaste. When you see the ADA seal on your toothpaste, that means it’s passed the rigorous quality control steps the ADA has in place. They don’t give their seal to any product that isn’t guaranteed to do what it’s advertised to do.

At the end of the day, you have a lot of choices when it comes to the right toothpaste. If you need help in making your decision, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our dentist, Dr. Chris Fagan in Enid, Oklahoma. We can be reached at 580-233-0043.
