Tooth Paste Tips
The first thing you need to know when shopping for toothpaste is to look for the ADA seal. ADA stands for American Dental Association. In order to put the ADA seal on their toothpaste containers, oral hygiene companies must pass rigorous testing procedures for safety and effectiveness. The seal is the highest guarantee of the product’s effectiveness.
Secondly, look for the kind of toothpaste that best fits your personal needs. Do you have sensitive teeth? Toothpastes for sensitive teeth can help. Want a whiter smile? Look for whitening toothpaste. Looking to strengthen your enamel? Check out what ADA products specifically focus on that.
Tooth Brush Tips
The ADA advises using toothbrushes with soft, wide bristles. This is because its most effective at working its ways into the grooves and crevices of your teeth. Electric toothbrushes are also great for giving your teeth the fullest clean.
