what influences your guys decision when making a toothpaste purchase?
What's ever cheapest.
depends how i tastes with dog sh1t on it, why ?[ot]LOL[/ot]there's always 1 who brings down the tone, but what i don't understand is: why is it always me ?
LOL... i think it just expected at this point. On that, i know, REALLY random question, but i like have a new favorite every couple months... of which i never really see any differences. So i've stuck with cinnamon flavored. The latest being crest pro-health.... i will admit... sometimes i am a sucker for a good marketing scheme, and if there is something attractive about said scheme... all is usually lost.
Call me a nerd, but I typically choose the cheapest one that is still approved by the American Dental Association.
lol... thats something i always forget to check.. or look for.
just added tooth brushes, i seriously take like ten minutes to pick out a tooth brush. On a side note.. this topic is crazy...
Toothpaste - i like the stripy stuff!
Toothbrush - whatever stands out so I don't end up using someone else's (A trick left over from my Uni days where day glo pink was mine - not so important now I have my own pad)
HA, thats a good point... (i hide mine)
Paste - I will lamely admit that I pay too much attention to advertisements. I tried many but found that Colgate offer best value for money where brands are concerned. As the all Colgates cost the same. I tend to go for the ones that supposedly help whiten your teeth.
Brush - as I am a lazy f*&%$er, I bought an electric one ages ago (Braun) so my choices are limited to what fits the handle (base). Man, I hate brushing manually. It makes me frigging gag!
Wait, how do you find that out?? That's new to me... I'm sure I would look for that if I knew about it.
Smart choice. This reminds me of that scene in Home Alone when the kid, Kevin, asked the clerk: "Is this toothbrush approved by the American Dental Association?" Always brings a laugh :chk:
On the back of every toothpaste tube or box. It normally looks like a big, black "ADA" logo.
I try and avoid the cheap ones because the the taste is overwhelming and sweet. And yes, i look for ADA approved ones too. As for toothbrushes, i look for the widest, most simplest straight-edged ones. I've had my fair share of toothbrushes that had crop-circle shapes on them and what not. I think they're all the same, really.
