Brushing your teeth, flossing each day, and visiting your dentist should be part of your dental hygiene routine, but what exactly goes into your toothpaste? Several ingredients play an important role in dental health. However, these ingredients only work if they’re used; family dentists recommend brushing twice a day for two minutes to properly clean your teeth.
The most important element in all toothpastes is fluoride. This helps strengthen tooth enamel and fight decay. Other active ingredients, such as potassium nitrate and triclosan, help reduce teeth sensitivity and fight bad breath. These ingredients and more help keep your teeth healthy and your dentist happy.
