For effective dental care, you should be brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes. Your Lake Stevens dentists Dr. Jason and Dr. Larson can show you effective ways of brushing, and they can recommend a different toothpaste that has the essential ingredients to care for your teeth.
Watch the video for a detailed look at the many ingredients in your toothpaste. The most important ingredient in your toothpaste is called fluoride. It protects and builds enamel on your teeth. You will also find potassium nitrate, which helps reduce tooth sensitivity. Other important ingredients include pyrophosphates and triclosan. These reduce tartar, gingivitis, and bad breath. As your dentist will tell you, these ingredients are crucial to effective dental care. They will help you maintain healthy teeth between your dental exams and teeth cleanings.
