Choosing the Right Toothpaste for Your Sonic Brush

Brushing your teeth twice a day is a fundamental practice for maintaining good oral hygiene. While you may already have chosen your perfect toothbrush, like the revolutionary Sonic Brush, have you given the some thought to the type of toothpaste you use? Believe it or not, the toothpaste you use can play an equally significant role in your oral health.
But with a vast array of toothpaste types available on the market, catering to a plethora of needs, choosing the right one for you and your family can be overwhelming. Let's take a closer look at the different types of toothpaste and how they benefit your teeth and gums.

Why Is Fluoride Toothpaste So Popular?

Fluoride toothpaste has long been heralded as the cornerstone of oral health. It is widely available and recommended for most people. At the heart of fluoride toothpaste is its ability to fortify tooth enamel. It re-mineralises the tooth enamel hence strengthening it and making it more resistant to decay. Additionally, fluoride can even reverse early signs of tooth decay and also has excellent bacteria-killing properties which helps in reducing the formation of plaque.


How Effective Are Whitening Toothpastes?  

Who doesn't want a dazzling smile? Whitening toothpastes often contain ingredients like baking soda or hydrogen peroxide that remove surface stains from teeth. However, while whitening toothpastes excel at addressing surface stains on the teeth, it does have limitations for dealing with more deeply rooted discolourations.

Over use, or use of a brand with a high level of harsh chemicals can damage your tooth enamel permanently. It's also worth noting that some whitening formulations can contribute to tooth sensitivity.

So you need to really proceed with caution as you will only realise the toothpaste is too harsh for you when you start to feel the pain of sensitivity. By then the damage may already be done.

Sensitivity Toothpaste for Pain-Free Living

If you or a family member experience sharp pains when consuming hot or cold foods and beverages, sensitivity toothpaste could be a godsend. These specialised toothpastes contain ingredients that are designed to strengthen the enamel and also contain de-sensitising agents (such as Potassium Nitrate or Stronium Chloride) that block the nerves within the tooth to minimise the pain. 

Is There A Specific Toothpaste For Bacteria Protection?  

Yes there is, is the short answer. Our mouths are full of bacteria. While most are harmless and necessary, some can lead to plaque, tartar, and eventually gum disease. Bacteria protection toothpastes usually contain ingredients like pyrophosphates, zinc citrate, and fluoride, designed to actively disrupt the growth and reproduction of bacteria. Using this toothpaste can also help control bad breath. These toothpastes also create a robust shield that stays on the teeth after you have finished brushing.


What If I Only Want To Use a Herbal/Botanical Toothpaste For My Family? 

For individuals who prefer a more natural approach to dental and oral care, herbal and botanical toothpastes offer a chemical-free option. These toothpaste varieties often feature ingredients such as Neem, tea tree oil and aloe vera.  If you have young children, consider using children's botanical toothpastes, specifically formulated to be safe if accidentally ingested, and less harsh and concentrated to suit developing teeth.


No matter your specific oral health needs, there is a type of toothpaste that's right for you, and it will be  compatible with the Sonic Brush. If you're unsure which toothpaste best suits you or your family, don't hesitate to contact us at
