Could Switching Up Your Toothpaste Give You a Better Clean?
Posted on 12/30/2019 by Lanier Valley Dentistry
When thinking about your oral care, you may consider the type of toothpaste you use. Because there's so many options, it may be hard to pick the right one.
However, any toothpaste that is dentist recommended is a safe bet to keep your mouth healthy. Many people may not know that switching toothpaste brands every so often may help them clean their teeth better though.
It may seem strange, but switching up your toothpaste can actually help your oral health. If you've been using the same type and brand of toothpaste for a long time, a new one could help you pay more attention while you brush your teeth. Research has shown that people who experiment with their toothpastes are more likely to brush their teeth better.
How Switching It Up Can Help You
Switching up your toothpaste can help you pay more attention while brushing because of the change in flavor. Many people get bored and tired of their toothpaste flavor after only a month. Switching your toothpaste can add a small amount of excitement to brushing your teeth. Plus, it may even be fun to see what interesting flavors you can find!
You may be thinking that all toothpastes are some kind of mint flavor. It's true, there are a lot of mint flavored toothpastes out on the market, but they all taste a little different. Though mint is the most popular flavor of toothpaste, some brands have their own distinct flavors that aren't mint.
Some other popular toothpaste flavors you should be able to find are bubble gum and grape. If you don't like the harshness of mint, there are also toothpastes that taste like spearmint, which can give you the refreshing feeling of mint but without the harshness.
