How to choose the right Toothpaste?

Choosing the right toothpaste is essential for maintaining good oral health. With so many options available in the market, it can be overwhelming to make the right choice. However, by understanding your specific dental needs and considering certain factors, you can ensure that you select the toothpaste that is best suited for you.

No two people have the same set of teeth. They are as unique as your fingerprints, then why use the same toothpaste for your entire family?

When choosing a toothpaste, need to carefully consider your options and select a product that addresses your needs. While all toothpastes are designed to clean your teeth, some are more effective than others. At the same time, some toothpastes have special formulations that help them strengthen enamel, eliminate stains, and reduce tooth sensitivity. Some contain active ingredients designed to help whiten teeth, lessen tooth sensitivity, prevent gingivitis, reduce enamel erosion, limit tartar build-up, or prevent bad breath. It can help to talk to your dentist and get recommendations about the most effective toothpaste for your unique dental requirements. 

Let’s help you out with some of the possible options. Standard Toothpaste: 

If regular teeth cleaning is all that you are looking for, this is for you! All kinds of toothpaste contain the below ingredients. However, the proportion may vary depending on the issue that the toothpaste is trying to address. While most toothpastes use harmful, toxic chemicals; Spicta toothpastes use natural substitutes which have the same benefits but without any harmful side effects. 

  • mild abrasive like sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to remove plaque and stains
  • humectants like glycerine to prevent the toothpaste from drying out
  • thickening agents like xanthan gum to provide a firm enough texture to the toothpaste to prevent it from running off your brush
  • flavouring agents and sweeteners like xylitol to for an awesome taste and freshness 
  • mild foaming agents like coconut oil to disperse the toothpaste as you brush

  • Whitening Toothpaste:
  • These kinds of toothpaste have a higher component of abrasive agents to lessen the appearance of stains, usually developed from routinely drinking certain beverages like coffee, tea, or soda. 

    We use natural ingredients like baking soda, Himalayan pink salt, mango leaf extracts, coconut shell powder, and walnut tree bark extracts as whitening agents. 

  • Anti-Cavity / Plaque Control Toothpaste: 
  • These toothpastes contain natural cavity-fighting minerals and compounds to help remove excess plaque and prevent cavities and potential tartar build-up. We use natural ingredients like mint, Himalayan pink salt, green tea leaf extracts, tea tree oil, lavender and chamomile extracts which have plaque control properties. 

  • Gum Strengthening Toothpaste:
  • These toothpaste prevent plaque building up in the gums, strengthen gums and remineralise tooth enamel, which helps to maintain optimal gum health. We use natural ingredients like tea tree oil, thyme oil, and ginger root extracts which strengthen gums and prevent gingivitis. 

  • Sensitive Teeth Toothpaste: 
  • These toothpastes are for those whose teeth are sensitive to hot or cold substances. Natural ingredients used in our toothpastes like ginger oil, and clove oil help to reduce the painful sensations that often come with having sensitive teeth.

    So, stop using the same toothpaste and choose the right one as per your dental needs! 

    It’s time to take oral care into your own hands…or rather, your toothbrush!
