The Benefits of Using Toothpaste

Using toothpaste—and more specifically a fluoride toothpaste—when brushing is considered a first and primary step to good oral hygiene. And the reasons for doing so are clear and quite basic; removing dental bacterial plaque is significantly easier due to the antibacterial ingredients and abrasives contained in most toothpastes. Your teeth also need fluoride, which has been scientifically proven to increase resistance to decay. What is critical is to ensure that you only use toothpaste that has the American Dental Association's (ADA) seal of approval, showing that it has been proven safe and effective.
