How New Toothpaste Flavors Could Make Brushing More Fun

Posted on 12/21/2020 by Carolina Smiles Family Dentistry
How New Toothpaste Flavors Could Make Brushing More FunDo you dislike how toothpaste tastes when you brush your teeth? There are a few different flavors of toothpaste that have been available for a while, but you may not find any of them to your liking. Some taste very minty, while others may not have much of a taste to them at all. Fortunately, there are a number of new toothpaste flavors out there that could help make brushing more fun. Here's how.

You'll Enjoy Brushing

Does anyone really like brushing their teeth? Unless you have something stuck between two of them or you have a weird taste in your mouth, brushing is likely something you neither enjoy nor dislike. Because of this, though, you may not necessarily care if you miss brushing your teeth one morning or skipping one night because you're already in bed and almost asleep. If you actually liked brushing your teeth, though, it might be different. Having a flavor you actually enjoy can help with that. Going to bed with a nice taste in your mouth or having a good flavor to carry you through the morning commute can actually be more motivational than you might think. With one of these new flavors, you may start looking forward to brushing.

New Flavors Encourage Children to Develop Good Brushing Habits

New flavors of toothpaste can also help children develop good brushing habits. If you're a parent, you may know how difficult it can be to get your children to brush their teeth in the morning or before bed. It's a task they don't like. If they had toothpaste in a flavor they enjoyed, though, brushing may become more fun. You might not have to encourage them quite as much. Of course, you do want to make certain the toothpaste you're using is the right option for you. With multiple brands saying they're the best, it can be hard to know which one you should use. We can help with that. Give us a call and we'll answer all of your toothpaste questions.
