If you want to take care of your teeth and have good oral hygiene, the first thing you should know is what type of toothpaste you should use. When brushing the teeth we help the removal of plaque and bacteria.
Nowadays most of the toothpastes include fluoride, which is one of the most effective components when taking care of the elimination of cavities. But, how does fluoride help us? Fluoride increases the resistance of the enamel creating a protective layer which is able to reduce the appearance of cavities. Another property of fluoride is that it is capable of reversing the process of dental caries when it is at the surface layer of the enamel.
The toothpastes should also have another special component such as the taste, since without a good taste it would not be so pleasant to perform tooth brushing. Nowadays there are different types of flavors: mint, lemon, spearment, which give us a fresh breath and stimulates us to use them.
On the other hand, there are also whitening toothpastes that help to remove stains or pigmentations but these are not able to change the natural color of the teeth. When using whitening toothpastes we must take into account that normally they contain abrasive particles bringing as a result the elimination of the superficial stains but also, they can produce wear at the enamel layer and tooth sensitivity.The most effective and lasting way to whiten your teeth is to perform a dental whitening in the dental office which is supervised by the dentist.
Now that we know all this information, by the time you are going to buy the toothpaste you must know that it should have 1450ppm when you are older than 6 years old.
