You may have quite a lot of knowledge about your toothbrush in terms of when you should replace it. However, your Temecula dentist realizes that you might not feel quite so confident about knowing when you should replace your toothpaste! Should you just use one tube until it runs out, no matter what? Are there any particular red flags, warning signs, details you have overlooked, etc., that would motivate you to toss out your current paste and start over with a fresh one? Run through some guidelines with our Temecula, CA team and you’ll be rich with essential knowledge!

When It Makes You Cringe, Gag, Etc.

We want you to remember that your toothpaste shouldn’t be grossing you out, shouldn’t tingle too much, shouldn’t burn, shouldn’t make you feel disgusted, etc. So, your Temecula dentist reminds you, if you’re not having very fond feelings for this part of your dental hygiene, it’s time to start over. Ask yourself which characteristic of your paste is probably the problem and then set out in search of a replacement that’s better!

When You Realize It’s Not Fluoridated

Perhaps you take a look at your toothpaste one day, only to realize that it doesn’t contain fluoride. Is this bad, you wonder? Well, according to your Temecula dentist, it’s not good. You need the daily application of fluoride during your dental hygiene to help keep your teeth strong, as you strive to prevent the development of cavities. Get new, fluoridated paste ASAP!

When It’s Expired

Has your toothpaste surpassed its “use by” date? If so, it’s time for a new tube!

When It Doesn’t Seem Effective

Your Temecula dentist reminds you that if you don’t feel like your toothpaste is providing you with the preventive protection you need, you should try a different one. Case closed!
