Toothpaste for Children

Plaque that is left on the teeth can harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. You’ll want to prevent tartar as much as possible, as excess tartar can cause gum disease. If tartar builds up quickly on your teeth, you may want to consider purchasing toothpaste with tartar control.
Some toothpastes fight dental stains with bleaching agents like baking soda or peroxide. Talk to our dentist in Elk Grove, California, today to find out which brands of whitening toothpaste are the safest.
