What kind of toothpaste do you need to buy?
Nowadays, you can find many types of toothpaste at your grocery store or pharmacy. Sometimes, it is hard to pick the right one. Choosing a good one needs some specialty. types of toothpaste include:
Tartar-control toothpastes may contain sodium pyrophosphate which helps to keep tartar from forming on teeth or better yet, sodium hexametaphosphate, which helps prevent tartar and stain, above the gum line. But if you already have stubborn tartar, tartar control toothpaste won’t remove it-you’ll need a professional cleaning from your dental hygienist.
Antimicrobial toothpastes may contain stannous fluoride, an antibacterial agent that also provides anti-cavity and sensitivity benefits.
Whitening toothpastes contain chemical or abrasive ingredients to help remove and/or prevent stains from forming on the teeth. When used regularly, whitening toothpastes can reduce the appearance of stains and make your teeth look whiter.
