You probably don’t think you need help buying toothpaste, right? Well, as it turns out, there are a lot of big oral health benefits that can come from using the right kind of toothpaste based on your oral health needs.

With that in mind, the following advice from our team here at Moore Dental Services in Florence, Kentucky, can help you get the best toothpaste for your needs.

When walking through the oral hygiene aisle, you should only consider buying a brand of toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This proves that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

Nonabrasive toothpastes, such as denture polish, are needed to clean other dental work and oral appliances.

There are some nonabrasive toothpastes that are formulated to help mitigate symptoms associated with chronic dry mouth.

Whitening toothpastes are a popular tool for people who want to maintain their white smile between dental cleanings. Most pastes are formulated with a mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide. It’s important to note that the concentration of whitening agents will not be strong enough to improve moderate or deep stains on teeth.
