When you go to the store for oral care products like toothpaste, be sure your purchase has the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. In this poste from Thompson and Frey Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Owensboro, we look at four ways the ADA seal can help you make good oral care choices for you and your family.
- Products with the seal have to be safe and effective, so you won’t waste your money on something that won’t work, or worse, can harm you.
- The American Dental Association (ADA) only places their seal on a product after serious scientific testing. This usually means that manufacturers have to meet higher standards than those required by law.
- When you purchase products with the ADA seal, it’s practically like shopping with your Owensboro dentist or dental hygienist right by your side! Who wouldn’t want that extra knowledge and information?
- The ADA seal is not the organization’s recommendation of one particular product or another, but rather is a verification of the claims made by said product, claims on which savvy consumers can rely.
Remember, brushing your teeth twice a day is the best way to maintain good dental health. You should also be flossing at least once a day.
