Is expensive toothpaste really worth the extra money? In short, regular brushing accompanied with a cheap toothpaste containing fluoride will help maintain great dental health over an expensive toothpaste. That being said, there are reasons why many choose to shell out the extra money to purchase more expensive toothpastes.

Whitening Toothpastes

Toothpastes that promise a whiter smile won’t have the same significant results a prescribed whitening kit can give you. We can prescribe a specific whitening treatment for you in the clinic, plus make personalized whitening trays that will fit your bite and teeth uniquely.

Sensitive Toothpastes

Tooth sensitivity is a common concern for cavities and infection. Luckily, most cases of tooth sensitivity are caused by less serious reasons. If you have tooth sensitivity, sensitive toothpastes might help to reduce sensitivity. To learn more, here is our article on sensitive teeth

Charcoal Toothpastes

While this is definitely the most trendy toothpaste on the current market, it has studies showing that charcoal’s abrasive nature can be too hard on enamel. But, while this toothpaste still contains fluoride, it’s still not the worst choice on the market.

Fluoride-Free Toothpastes

Toothpastes that are fluoride-free are not as effective at preventing cavities. In fact, these toothpastes are far more expensive than toothpastes that are much more effective. If you’re allergic to fluoride, then fluoride-free toothpastes are essential to your oral health. These allergic reactions are categorized by swelling in the mouth, a rash around the mouth, and general soreness in the mouth after brushing.

Scentless and All-Natural Toothpastes

In case you are sensitive to strong flavors or other ingredients in regular toothpastes, all-natural toothpastes can be a great alternative. As long as the all-natural toothpaste has fluoride, you won’t be risking any tooth decay.
