Many options: Any fluoridated non-abrasive toothpaste would be a good choice. If you have a very low decay rate and therefore won't really benefit from the fluoride, baking soda and a little salt has done well by many people for decades as well. Even dry brushing is helpful so the main thing is to brush and clean inter-dentally (floss or another aid).

Toothpaste: Rule of thumb is the major brands are all basically the same and safe.

Use what you like: and you will use it more often, brush longer, feel better, be healthier and smile more.

Toothpaste: Choose toothpaste with American Dental Association seal that attests that the claims on the package are accurate. Use low abrasive fluoridated toothpaste. Use pea sized portion, soft bristled toothbrush. Brush 2x/day for 2 full minutes by the clock. Brush gently but thoroughly. Ask Dentist to show you proper technique. Make sure to floss daily. Have professional cleaning 2x/year.
