Have you ever heard that toothpastes have actually existed for over a hundred years? Did you know that toothpaste was originally flavorless or that it originally came in a jar? Luckily, there are a number of options you can choose from now, but do you know how to make the choice that best meets your needs?

There are a number of options that could work best for you. For example, would you be surprised to learn that some toothpastes can actually help you prevent tooth decay? You see, toothpastes with fluoride will strengthen your enamel, which is the protective layer of your teeth. However, fluoride shouldn’t be swallowed, meaning you should avoid giving this type of toothpaste to your child. Luckily, you can simply give your child fluoride-free toothpaste.

Of course, mouthwashes can do more than help you prevent gum disease. In reality, toothpastes can whiten your teeth and help you cope with sensitive teeth. Luckily, you might also be able to find toothpastes that can keep your teeth clean while helping you deal with sensitivity.
