Is the most expensive/most advertised toothpaste the best?

Updated: Mar 26

The truth about toothpaste is that the essential ingredients are mostly the same, regardless of the brand you choose. These ingredients include abrasive substances, surfactants (that is, detergents), fluorides, binding agents, moisturizing agents, and flavors. However, it's important to understand that toothpaste, on its own, cannot work wonders without proper brushing. It is a valuable element in the oral hygiene routine but cannot compensate for incorrect, insufficient, or even non-existent brushing.

There is a myth about special toothpaste promoted for various issues, such as sensitive gums or dental sensitivity. These toothpaste indeed contain additional ingredients to help address these specific problems. Nevertheless, it's important to grasp that these toothpaste cannot solve these problems on their own. They function as supplements, supporting the treatment conducted at the dental office and following the advice of the dentist.

As for "whitening" toothpaste, they are simply more abrasive than conventional toothpaste. This allows them to more effectively remove stains from coffee, nicotine, wine, and others. However, it's crucial to know that these toothpaste cannot make your teeth whiter than they were originally. Moreover, if used excessively, these toothpaste can lead to dental sensitivity.

It is fundamental to remember that a dentist can teach you the correct way to brush your teeth. If you have reasons to use something other than conventional toothpaste, your dentist will advise you. We invite our patients to schedule a free consultation, where they can not only learn proper brushing techniques but also receive personalized recommendations for maintaining optimal oral hygiene.
