Toothpaste protects enamel against acids and sugar and prevents tooth decay and cavities

Toothpaste, also called dentifrice, is essential to proper oral hygiene and is used for many reasons: to protect and build the enamel against acidic and sugary foods; to clean out all leftover food debris; and to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Part of the apparent growth toward improved personal hygiene can be attributed to biotechnological advances that expand on the function and benefits of traditional toothpaste. Patients can now purchase toothpaste customized to their particular needs or preferences, such as enamel protection, whitening, relieving dry mouth and treatment of sensitivity. This multi-functionality of toothpaste now offers us more targeted control of our oral care regimes at home. This article will educate and guide you in how to choose the right toothpaste for your specific needs. Read the complete article How to Choose the Right Toothpaste for You in our blog.
