The toothpaste aisle overflows with options, all claiming to disinfect, whiten, brighten, restore, repair, and clean your teeth. But how do you pick the right brand? Our dentists reveal their top three recommendations for toothpaste. All of our recommendations today carry the American Dental Association seal, which signifies that the product bearing the seal will do what is promised.
The following are our favorite options for patients with no existing issues or special dental needs. A dental professional can help you determine which toothpaste is best for your dental condition. None of our recommendations contain environmentally-unfriendly microbeads or unsafe triclosan.
- Crest Pro-Health. While many toothpaste brands claim to reduce bacteria in the mouth, Crest Pro-Health uses two separate ingredients to protect against the plague and fight tartar buildup. With one product, Crest Pro-Health defends against cavities, gingivitis, plaque, sensitive teeth, tartar buildup, and it freshens breath while it whitens teeth. Crest has been a trusted brand by dentists for over 60 years, and regularly works to bring consumers the newest and safest innovations in dental care.
- Sensodyne ProNamel Multi-Action. Most people are familiar with the Sensodyne product line for sensitive teeth. Now, the same reliable line offers ProNamel toothpaste to protect against the effects of acid erosion, restore whiteness by gently removing stains, effectively freshen breath, and protect against cavities. It is still an effective choice for those with sensitive teeth.
- Clinpro 5000. Clinpro 5000 is only available through your dentist or with a prescription because it contains 5000 parts per million of fluoride, more than four times the amount of fluoride found in over-the-counter toothpaste. This level of fluoride prevents tooth decay and remineralizes tooth enamel white spots to protect from future cavities.
Don’t be overwhelmed in the dental aisle anymore. Each of these toothpaste varieties can keep your mouth clean and your smile bright! No toothpaste is a replacement for a professional cleaning and regular maintenance.
