Dr. Kiran Gill and her team are often asked questions about best oral hygiene practices. One of the most common questions we hear is, “What is the best toothpaste?”
Depending on your teeth, there are a few basic things you want to look for in your regular toothpaste:
- Fluoride for cavity protection
- Whitening/stain removal
- ADA seal of approval to ensure proven safety and effectiveness
- Help with sensitive teeth, if that’s a problem for you
We recommend that you ask us about it at your next exam. For example, we might recommend staying away from whitening toothpastes if you have sensitive teeth and gums.
