Posted on 10/19/2020 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Key Ingredients To Make Sure Your Toothpaste HasBrushing your teeth for two minutes two times a day is a routine you have to practice daily. It will help make sure you have good oral health and hygiene. Therefore, you need to ensure you are using a quality toothbrush and toothpaste. You can either use an electric or manual toothbrush. When selecting a toothpaste, make sure that it has some of the following ingredients.


Fluoride is an essential ingredient that any toothpaste has; this is because of the several benefits it has to your oral health. It acts as a protective layer that protects your enamel, preventing it from cavities. It works better when combined with surfactants needed in the process of remineralization. Lauryl sulfates and ammonium lauryl sulfates such as sodium sulfates are the most common ones. Surfactants are responsible for cleaning the teeth and producing form, which helps to carry the debris away. Lauryl sulfates do have antibacterial properties that enable them to penetrate and dissolve plaque.

Sodium Carbonate Peroxide

Sodium peroxide is added to your toothpaste to help in the teeth whitening process. It consists of hydrogen peroxide and sodium carbonate (washing soda), which bleach the teeth and kill the germ.

Sodium Saccharin

Sodium saccharin is a sweetener added to your toothpaste for flavoring. It makes your toothpaste to have that sweet taste for comfort when brushing. Most kinds of toothpaste have flavorings that consist of mint and essential oils. Sodium saccharin is also responsible for killing plaque microbes.


Gum, as a toothpaste ingredient, makes it thicker. It also helps to retain moisture that will prevent the toothpaste from drying and becoming hard. Some kinds of toothpaste have additional components; they have different medical and oral health benefits. Contact our office if you want to know which toothpaste is suitable for your oral health and hygiene.
