Choose Your Toothpaste Wisely

Toothpaste is designed to be abrasive in order to remove plaque and stains off our teeth. Some "Whitening" toothpastes and "Tartar Control" toothpastes tend to be the most abrasive. Unfortunately the protective shell of our teeth, the enamel, is thinnest around the neck of the tooth, down by the gum line. So after years of brushing our teeth with toothpaste we have worn away the thin portion of our enamel by the gum line creating notches, grooves and sometimes sensitivity.

So choose your toothpaste wisely. Avoid abrasive toothpastes. Some toothpaste may even feel "gritty" between your teeth and indicate that they are abrasive. Our favorite toothpastes are available in the reception area and we would be happy to answer questions you may have about which toothpaste is best for you.
