You’re not necessarily going to love the first toothpaste you purchase. Or, you may find that you like certain aspects of your toothpaste but not all of them. How to sort out your dental hygiene, so you can brush without cringing or feeling a wee bit angry toward the products you’re using? How to ensure you’re using something that’s actually beneficial for your entire smile? If you weren’t already guessing at this, the answer is: Ask us! Your Riverside dentist can help you identify excellent products.

Stop Using Straight Baking Soda (Or Adding It)

Your Riverside dentist wonders if you are using straight baking soda to cleanse your smile because you heard it was a good idea or perhaps it’s something you’ve always considered to be toothpaste. We encourage you to stop doing this and to stop adding it to your toothpaste. While it can certainly offer cleansing power, it can also strip your enamel. This is the protective layer on your teeth. Stick instead with fluoridated paste without abrasives.

Start Trying Different Products

Your Riverside dentist also suggests seeking out and trying out a variety of toothpastes. Unless you absolutely love the one that you are currently using, you’ll find that discovering something you enjoy is much easier and faster when you test out new products.

Stick With The Essential Details

Don’t skip out on the stuff you already know to be essential (or those things you’re about to learn) when it comes to appropriate toothpaste. Your Riverside dentist specifies: Use an ADA approved, fluoridated, non-abrasive product. It’s that easy!
