There are an overwhelming amount of toothpastes to choose from, so what you want out of a toothpaste matters. In fact, it's about the only thing that matters because, technically, you don’t need toothpaste to brush your teeth. Toothpaste’s main job is to get plaque off of your teeth, Price says, but your brush would do that anyway. Of course, toothpastes do have added benefits: some whiten, some decrease sensitivity, and some aid in remineralization. It's tough to go wrong, but Price specifically advises choosing one with added fluoride and the ADA seal of acceptance.
