How To Choose The Best Toothpaste For You

“Which is the best toothpaste to use?” – this is one of the most common questions I am asked by patients. It’s a logical question, since there are so many toothpastes on the market that claim to do wonders for your teeth and oral health. But it’s a tough one for that same reason.

The best way to answer the question is to help my patients understand what toothpaste really is. Then, to understand what toothpaste can actually do for our oral health and what its limitations are.

Next we need to know what the patient’s dental goals are and finally, we need to interpret the list of ingredients. Once you know what the ingredients are, you can decide if you want to use them in your body or not. And if not, what are the alternatives?

Oral Wellness: Health’s Essential Component

By Demika Levy, RDH in Dubai

People often ask me about oral wellness.

As the times change, so does the moniker that defines my role and the treatment I provide to my patients. As a hygienist, I am responsible for educating patients about their oral health. Oral health involves having them understand the connection between the biofilm in their mouths and the impact on the oral structures and the other systems in the body.

Therefore, oral wellness is a component of Total Body Wellness. This incorporates the health, function, and aesthetics of the oral cavity. All three—health, function, and aesthetics—are the optimum of oral wellness. Read on to learn why.
