Which Toothpaste you should use?

Generally all the toothpastes are the same. Regular brushing and flossing habits will ensure your teeth a long life.

  2. Use fluoride toothpaste. Excessive fluoride can be dangerous for your health.
  3. Tartar control toothpastes slow down the build-up of tartar (plaque), but daily brushing with any toothpaste and flossing are the best tartar-control methods.
  4. Rub walnut bark on your teeth to clean and whiten.
  5. If you have sensitive teeth, use a toothpaste that contains fluoride and potassium nitrate or strontium chloride. The brand name is not important, all are same except the price.

Note that commercially available toothpastes contains chemicals such as saccharin, whiteners, bleaches, and artificial flavors and colors.
