You might feel very comfortable asking a variety of questions of us for your preventive care. However, when it comes down to inquiries that are about the very building blocks of dental hygiene and oral health, you might feel a little uneasy about bringing them up. To this uncertainty, we immediately say: Ask us everything! It’s all equally important. Whether you need to learn more about toothpaste (don’t worry, we’ve got answers to pressing questions on the way) or something much more complex, we are always here to help.
Questions and Answers
Question: What are the basics regarding the type of toothpaste that I should use?
Answer: When you’re choosing a toothpaste, it’s important to remember a few things: You should find one that you like. You should choose one that has fluoride in it. You should also look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance, so you know it will actually help keep your oral health safe.
Question: Is there a certain amount that I should be using on my toothbrush when I brush? Or, is it just something I need to figure out on my own?
Answer: We instruct our patients to use a very small amount! You will find that this is the general guideline for optimal oral health. You just need a single, pea-size sphere of toothpaste for dental hygiene that offers exceptional results.
Question: Isn’t it true that fluoride is toxic? If so, why do you suggest I use it?
Answer: Like many natural things in this world, if you were to ingest way too much fluoride (specifically, if you were to eat a lot of it), it could cause some serious digestive problems. However, using it daily for dental hygiene is not toxic. It’s beneficial for your smile because it keeps your teeth resilient and strong.
