If you want a clean and pristine smile, you need to use toothpaste regularly. This is because it’s a handy tool that can help your brush clean the surfaces as well as the crevices of your teeth. To help you know a little more about toothpaste in Jupiter, Florida, Dr. Higham & Dr. Sauchelli would like to share some interesting facts with you.

Toothpaste Fact No. 1: Each type of toothpaste has different ingredients. Each ingredient has its own benefit and function and it can help the smile. However, fluoride should be an ingredient that is high on your priority list. If you would like to know which paste is best for your smile, please ask our dental team.

Toothpaste Fact No. 2: The most effective time to use toothpaste is right after your six-month checkup. This is because the teeth are completely clean, so the toothpaste has direct contact with the smile. It’s also effective to use toothpaste when you brush your teeth twice daily.

Toothpaste Fact No. 3: Children should not use toothpaste made for adults. This is because adult paste contains high amounts of fluoride. Giving children adult toothpaste can actually cause a problem called fluorosis. Children also swallow toothpaste, and if they swallow adult paste, it can make them sick.
