Toothpaste, Which One Is The Best?
Toothpaste. Ever go to a Shoppers Drug Mart to buy toothpaste but can’t decide because there are so many different types? We end up just asking someone or search for the toothpaste that is either on sale, or we choose the one that will whiten our teeth.
We often see commercials of Sensodyne and the fact that their toothpaste is the best. Is Sensodyne really the best toothpaste available? I mean 4 out of 5 dentists recommend it, so it should be the best one available? The first way to choose the best toothpaste is to make sure that the American Dental Association (ADA) certifies it. This ensures that it will provide the best care and protection for your teeth.
Selecting a toothpaste that contains both fluoride and triclosan maximizes the effects of brushing teeth.
A common perception is to rinse your mouth after you brush, or drink a glass of water. This minimizes the effect that the fluoride has on your teeth as it essentially “washes away” the fluoride from the toothpaste.
