How to Find a Good Toothpaste

With all the different types of toothpastes out there how do you know which ones are the best?

The first thing you want to look for is the ADA (American Dental Association) seal. This seal assures that the product has been evaluated for effectiveness and safety. All ADA toothpaste contains fluoride, which helps remove plaque that can cause tooth decay and gum disease. All fluoride toothpastes meet the ADA’s guideline requirements. These products are tested during clinical studies in humans and during laboratory studies that determine the amount of fluoride that is released and absorbed in the enamel.

So, the most important thing when picking out toothpaste is to make sure it has the seal of approval on it. From there, feel free to pick the flavor and brand of your choice!
