How to Make Sense of the Toothpaste Aisle

Toothpaste

Buying toothpaste should not rank among the more complicated tasks an individual must tackle during a typical week, but given the recent proliferation of brands, versions and options in this particular consumer sector, it can actually be somewhat daunting. With seemingly countless products touting their ability to whiten, brighten, eliminate plaque, fight sensitivity, battle gingivitis and improve overall dental care, it can be difficult to know which way to turn. Throw in a few variables relating to tube shape, size and product flavor, and many consumers start to wonder which product really is best.

Consumer feedback on the topic of toothpaste choice has caught the attention of toothpaste manufacturers, causing them to significantly begin scaling back the number of new offerings being sent to market. The year 2010 saw just 69 new product releases, a major drop from the 102 products that were introduced back in 2007. Proctor & Gamble, Co., for example, has been a leader in the trend of limiting the launch of new products in this family dentistry category, acknowledging that more is not always better.

Retailers have also taken note of customer and affordable dentist preferences for increased simplicity, evidenced by the fact that store offerings of distinct sizes and kinds of toothpaste dropped from 412 in March of 2008 to 352 in 2011. The sense of being bombarded by too many confusing and sometimes conflicting claims on toothpaste packaging is something for which many consumers developed a real distaste.

With so many dental care variants on store shelves, most people simply wish to know which toothpaste works best when it comes to maintaining good dental health and following sound family dentistry practices. Almost every affordable dentist will attest to the fact that there is no need to make fine distinctions between brands or versions, as long as focus is kept on the basics. Choosing a formulation that contains fluoride and bears the American Dental Association seal of acceptance provides sufficient evidence of quality and effectiveness in virtually all circumstances. Aside from that, finding a toothpaste with a pleasing flavor and an affordable price need be the only major considerations for most consumers.
