In a The Wealthy Dentist dental marketing survey, dentists were asked if they believe it matters which type of toothpaste dental patients use.
Two-thirds of the dentists who responded agreed that some toothpastes can make a difference in oral health. The remaining dentists felt that any toothpaste dental patients buy today will clean teeth just fine.
According to several of the dentists, the toothbrush is what really matters — not the toothpaste.
Wrote one dentist, “The brush does 95% of the work.” A pediatric dentist agreed: “In all honesty, you do not need toothpaste. The friction of the toothbrush is the most important thing! You can even use a wet washcloth or a Q-tip.”
Others point out that it is the amount of time that dental patients spend brushing is what really matters.
