Choosing the Right Toothpaste

The important thing to know about toothpastes is that you want something  that does not harm the teeth. Many toothpastes on the market put strong  abrasives in the paste that can damage tooth structure as well as the  gums. Tarter control toothpastes are just a fancy way of saying that  there are abrasives in the toothpaste that literally sand off the  tarter. Similarly, whitening formulations in toothpastes don’t have the  concentrations high enough to achieve a whiter smile but can irritate  the gums as well. My personal choice is a regular toothpaste such as  Colgate/Crest regular or Colgate Sensitive or Sensodyne regular.
