Not sure which toothpaste is right for your dental needs? Find out now.

Even though the type of toothpaste you use won’t make much of a difference if you don’t properly brush and floss your teeth, for those toothpastemeticulous and routine cleaners this is an important question. After all, you want oral care products that will protect your smile for years to come. If you want to get a clean bill of health the next time you visit your Brookfield dentists Drs. Thomas and Charles Steinbach, it might be time to figure out which toothpaste will address your concerns.

You want to remove stains and yellowing

While whitening toothpastes can be a great way to polish teeth and prevent stains, they aren’t much help for stains that already exist. If you are looking to achieve a whiter smile, you will want to look for certain toothpastes that contain modified silicone abrasives.

If you’ve used this type of whitening paste for over a month and still haven’t achieved the optimum results, it’s time to talk to your Brookfield cosmetic dentist about in-office whitening treatments.

You are at an increased risk for cavities

There are some people who are more prone to developing cavities. If this is the case, it’s time to look for a toothpaste that contains fluoride, which will protect enamel. Fluoride is able to protect teeth from cavity-producing acids. And if you really want to give your teeth the protection they deserve, then don’t rinse your mouth out right after brushing.

You have tooth sensitivity

If you experience tooth or gum sensitivity and we have already determined that it isn’t being caused by an infection or cavity, then you may be brushing too hard. If this is the case, then you need to look for toothpastes that contain desensitizing agents such as potassium nitrate.

You are prone to tartar buildup

Tartar is the result of hardened plaque. Once plaque hardens it doesn’t matter how much you brush your teeth, only our Brookfield family dentist can remove it. If you tend to experience tartar buildup you can use toothpastes that contain certain ingredients like zinc citrate, which can fight off tartar.
