If you’re in the oral hygiene aisle at the store looking for the perfect tube of toothpaste for your smile, our dentist, Dr. Daniel McKay, is happy to help you. There are certain characteristics you should look for to ensure a top-notch paste that can help you and your smile. Those characteristics are:

-ADA approval: The American Dental Association Seal of Approval is a logo that is printed on the packaging of many toothbrushes, toothpastes, dental floss, and more. This logo means the product is safe and effective for your smile. It’s best to choose a paste that has this approval.

-Fluoride: Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps your teeth more than you might realize. The fluoride strengthens the tooth enamel and helps prevent cavities and enamel erosion. If you choose a paste that has fluoride, it can help you maintain a top-notch and healthy smile.

-The necessary characteristics: Make sure to choose a paste that meets your needs. For example, if you want whiter teeth, select whitening toothpaste that cleans and enhances your smile. If you have sensitive teeth, select desensitizing toothpaste.
