A Great Dentist

What type of toothpaste should I buy?

We know how overwhelming it can feel when shopping for the right toothpaste for you. There always seems to be a limitless supply of brands and formulas and making the wrong choice might require a trip to North Tampa Dentistry. 

How do you know which brand is perfect for you?

How to Choose the Right Toothpaste

The type of toothpaste you buy will depend on what you are asking it to do.

If you have sensitive teeth, you have a couple of options. There are store brands of sensitive toothpaste that are proven to work extremely well. These are great as a starting off point to help determine the level of care you require.

Patients may need a prescription toothpaste from our office. Or you could pay more for a sensitive toothpaste prescription from your dentist in North Tampa, Hamlet, Brentwood, and Carrollwood.

If you have sensitive teeth, you likely need to buy a sensitive toothpaste such as Sensodyne.

If you have bleeding gums then Parodontax may help. This brand is proven to remove and eliminate plaque, making it more effective at getting rid of bleeding gums than traditional fluoride toothpaste.

There is fluoride-free toothpaste to help train young kids who can’t properly swish and spit yet so they don’t ingest it.

There is even a prescription toothpaste, Prevident, with extra fluoride to help with people who are cavity prone.
