Did you know that people have been using toothpaste since the late 1800s? This toothpaste was tasteless and came in a jar. Fortunately, toothpaste has come a long way since then. As you may know, several kinds of toothpaste have been made to meet a variety of needs. Still, how do you know which toothpaste is right for you?
Of course, many kinds of toothpaste have fluoride in them, which can strengthen your teeth and help you fight off decay. There are also prescription toothpastes with more fluoride in them, designed to remineralize your teeth and fight off decay. There are also many toothpastes made for children who don’t know how to spit, which is useful because fluoride shouldn’t be swallowed. Fortunately, these toothpastes are fluoride-free and come in several flavors.
You can also choose toothpaste meant for individuals with sensitive teeth. In other words, if you’re hesitant to eat ice cream or to drink anything hot, this type of toothpaste could be right for you. In fact, these types of toothpaste can actually give you long lasting relief. They often include whitening ingredients and fluoride. There are also toothpastes specifically designed to whiten your teeth.
