Fact: Toothpaste Is a Matter of Preference

With so many kinds of toothpastes, you may wonder if one is better than another. Don’t sweat it. As long as the toothpaste contains fluoride, which makes teeth more impervious to decay, the brand or formula doesn’t matter. Look for toothpaste that has the ADA Seal of Approval which means it meets ADA criteria for safety and effectiveness. Tartar-control toothpaste may reduce how much tartar (buildup of hardened plaque) accumulates on teeth, but some people experience sensitivity after using it. Whitening toothpastes help remove stains but they may also cause sensitivity.
