In the scope of things, toothpaste troubles can seem petty to complain about. On the other hand, you have to deal with it at least twice a day, when you brush your teeth clean of food particles. There was a time when toothpaste choices were few, and people received dental checkups and cleanings that included bad news about the state of their oral health. While there are restorative procedures that can halt the damage of decay, proper brushing may head off trouble before it begins. Take steps to find the toothpaste that makes you look forward to brushing.
Try a Different Flavor
Toothpaste flavors go far beyond mint and regular these days. Even if you aren’t quite ready for bubble gum or bacon flavors (yes, they exist!) try some travel sized tubes to find a flavor you like. Check with your professional dental staff to see if there might be samples on hand, to try new flavors and toothpaste brands. Ask friends what brands and flavors they enjoy.
Is The Tube Hard to Squeeze?
If you find tubes hard to grip, or caps hard to remove, how about trying a pump toothpaste? Not only can that help when grip strength is reduced or arthritis has flared up, but it eliminates chasing little caps around the counter, or wondering where they have disappeared to after each use
Is Your Toothpaste Lazy?
Toothpaste these days can multitask. There are many ADA-approved brands that not only help your toothbrush clean your teeth, but they can reduce or eliminate bad breath, help fight gum disease, add a bit of sparkle to dull teeth, help combat tooth sensitivity and more.
