Tooth Paste

I read an interesting article.
actually i don't know how interesting it'll be for u guys :) bs u can learn a thing or two.
a very common question I hear is what type of toothpaste should i use ?

Tooth pastes act as a vehicle to provide a good and sound aesthetic smile. Here in this article you will be enlightened to the available types of tooth pastes and their different functions.

The tooth pastes in the markets are categorized in to chiefly three groups -

Group 1: Abrasive tooth pastes

These types of tooth pastes are also referred to as smokers tooth paste because of the action of abrasives to remove the smokers stain.

But it can have a side effect based on the operator’s style. I mean the operator with aggressive style of tooth brushing and those who use hard tooth brush should definitely avoid these type of toothpastes as it can easily abrade away most of your teeth.

(these are the types of toothpastes that feel like they have sand in them)

Group 2: Chemical tooth pastes

These groups of chemical tooth pastes have their action on the surface chemistry of the tooth surface.

By acting on the tooth these pastes will prevent the plaque/tartar, the white mass to get attached to the tooth. These pastes also contain peroxides for whitening and also have baking soda which is a mild abrasive.

It is used in condition where the decayed tooth is more that is the person has a high caries activity.

(usually referred by dentist but are widely available)

Group 3: Cosmetic tooth paste

These groups of tooth pastes are the most commonly used. These pastes have titanium dioxide in them. The action of these compounds is that they will go and fill all the crevices present in the tooth and give an illusion of whiter teeth.

*All three groups basically differ on these aspects but all the tooth pastes have fluorides added to them at around 500 – 1000 ppm/tooth paste.

This is interesting, Hmmm Does the first group removes the stain from the teeth and the gum's?
Also Which is better group and how can I know it when choosing the brand?

Thanks a lot ^^

I prefer changing the toothpaste brand after the tube finishes...

I feel that once your teeth get used to one type it stops having any effect on your teeth...

i must say that i scanned the article. ( i didn't read it in a proper way) but here is what i know about toothpaste

most toothpastes contains SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), which is a cheap foaming agent, and it is classified as an industrial grade cleaner and it is also used in most shampoos as well. ( and u should wonder what an industrial grade cleaner is doing inside ur mouth and on ur body)

fluoride also is used widely in toothpastes, and this leads to the hazard of poisoning...

also there is many ingreidents i don't know any thing about them (YET)

now i am using an SLS, flouride free toothpaste. and it is doing well with me
