5 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Toothpaste

There are so many types of toothpaste to choose from that it can be overwhelming. Which one is the best? Which ones should I avoid? These questions and more can be answered by following these 5 factors below!

How to Choose the Best Toothpaste:

5. Taste

You want to find a toothpaste that you enjoy. It might seem like a no-brainer, using toothpaste with a flavor that you like is important. If you like the way your toothpaste tastes and its texture, you will be more likely to brush regularly. 

4. Cost 

Just because it is more expensive does not mean it is better! There are many different kinds of toothpaste that are only expensive because their marketing costs are added to the cost of the product. And there are plenty of good options that are cheaper. 

3. Abrasiveness 

Many whitening toothpastes are abrasive and using these products frequently or with aggressive brushing could lead to irreversible loss of tooth structure.

2. Fluoride 

Make sure to choose a toothpaste with fluoride! This is the most important ingredient in toothpaste because it helps to strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities.

1. ADA

Select a toothpaste that is approved by the ADA. The American Dental Association spends a lot of time and resources to ensure that the products they endorse are safe.
