Everyone's needs are different

There are so many options these days that choosing the right toothpaste can be confusing.

Everyone’s dental needs are different so some toothpastes address gum disease and bad breath while others help tooth sensitivity.

If you are an adult or teen at high risk for tooth decay there is a high strength fluoride toothpaste just for you called Neutrafluor5000 Plus, available at the pharmacy counter.

You may be deemed a high risk decay patient by your dentist if:
• You have a dry mouth with low or poor quality saliva
• You have a diet with frequent sugary drinks or foods
• You have sticky decay-causing bacteria
• You have gum recession with some exposure of the root surfaces
• You have braces for orthodontic treatment
• You have dexterity challenges or cognitive decline
