Demystifying the Process of Buying Toothpaste

Toothpaste

The dizzying array of toothpastes available these days truly is something to behold. What used to occupy just a small bit of shelf space in most stores now encompasses entire aisles. However, not all consumers are pleased about the complexity involved in finding the right toothpaste to suit their dental care needs.

Consumer feedback on the topic of toothpaste choice has caused toothpaste manufacturers to significantly scale 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 preferences for increased simplicity by consumers and dentists, since store offerings of different sizes and kinds of toothpaste dropped from 412 in 2008 to 352 in 2011. Many consumers have developed a real distaste for being bombarded by so many confusing claims on toothpaste packages.

With so many dental care options, most people simply want to know which toothpaste works best when it comes to maintaining good dental health and following sound family dentistry practices. Affordable dentists in Oxon Hill will likely agree that consumers do not have to make fine distinctions between brands or versions, as long as they focus on the basics. In most cases, a formulation that contains fluoride and is approved by the American Dental Association (ADA) is evidence of effectiveness and quality. Aside from that, finding a toothpaste with a pleasing flavor they like, at an affordable price, are the most important considerations for most consumers.
