Toothpaste has come a long way since it was first mass-produced. Toothpastes today are made to meet your every dental hygiene need and they come in a variety of flavors. However, because there are so many types of toothpaste available, it can be difficult to choose the right one for you or your family. Dr. Vahid Bashi and our team are pleased to recommend a toothpaste that will aid you in your dental health needs. Some common toothpaste types include:
Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel and helps protect the teeth against cavities. Fluoride toothpaste is recommended for both children and adults. Adults can especially benefit from fluoride toothpaste if they have dry mouth or if they have a condition that makes them more susceptible to tooth decay.
Toothpaste for Children
There are toothpastes available that are made just for children. Children’s toothpaste comes in many tasty flavors and colors. If your child is under two years old, choose a toothpaste that is safe to swallow.
If you wish for a bright smile, there are toothpastes for that. You may wish to consult with our dentist in Colorado Springs, Colorado, about which whitening toothpastes are the most effective.
The plaque that forms on the teeth hardens into tartar over a period of time. Once tartar has formed, only a professional cleaning can remove it. If you are prone to quick tartar buildup, tartar control toothpaste may be for you.
