When you buy toothpaste, do you take a second to stop and make sure you know exactly what type you’re buying? If you said no, that’s alright – most people don’t. While it’s true that brushing your teeth is obviously preferable to not brushing your teeth, there are quite a few benefits that you can get from using a specific kind of toothpaste.

Let’s look at a few of those benefits and why you should pay attention to them when shopping for toothpaste.

Your oral health needs

Do you have excess plaque buildup? What about gingivitis? Are your teeth not as white as they should be, or do you always need a pick-me-up to help your breath smell great?

If any of those describe you, there’s a toothpaste in existence made specifically to address that issue. From whitening toothpaste to one that helps battle the germs that cause bad breath, you can help address oral health problems with the toothpaste you use. So take those needs into consideration when buying toothpaste.

ADA seal

The American Dental Association (ADA) certifies dental products for consumer use, and when you’re buying toothpaste you should always buy a brand that has their seal of approval. This means the product does what it’s advertised to do and actually benefits your oral health.
