Toothpaste (dentifrice) is usually a paste or gel used with your toothbrush to clean teeth and improve your oral health. The main benefit of using a toothpaste is the effect of the active ingredients, so it’s important you pick the right one for you.
Growing Smiles’ range includes those that help prevent tooth decay, tooth wear/tooth surface loss from things like acid erosion or tooth grinding; help dry mouth sufferers or those with ulcers, sensitive and sore gums; toothpastes that help reduce tooth sensitivity e.g.from receding gums: alternative flavours to mint and flavour free for those who may be sensitivity to some of the ingredients in many well known toothpastes e.g. sodium lauryl sulphate; whitening toothpastes to brighten teeth and reduce tooth surface stains. We even have a fluoride free toothpaste – recognising that some people prefer a toothpaste without fluoride but still want to use something that benefits their oral health.
Remember to spit out after brushing – but don’t rinse. Let the ingredients work their magic for as long as possible.
