What's the best toothpaste?

Toothpaste is essentially a dentifrice, a bit like any type of soap. There is a huge range of different pastes available in commercial stores, some with advanced research. Mostly they all contain fluoride which is great. Gels are less abrasive than the pastes Personally Dr. Zukerman believes it’s the technique of cleaning that’s more important than actual toothpaste.

So simply choose the one that you like best! Only a small amount is needed (especially kids) and always aim the toothbrush bristles to the gums of the teeth with a swirling motion. Don’t scrub! Equally important is the cleaning of the gaps and spaces between the teeth with the floss or miniature interdental brushes.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
