ESSENTIAL TOOTHPASTE INGREDIENTS
Preventive dental care is the best way to keep your smile healthy and bright—taking good care of your teeth and gums with a smart oral care plan will help you prevent common dental problems. Brushing and flossing daily are the cornerstones of a good daily dental care routine, and the toothpaste you use plays a vital part in the efficacy of these tasks. This video takes a closer look at the ingredients found in your toothpaste, as well as the role each ingredient plays. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel to prevent cavities and decay, and is found in all ADA-approved toothpaste products. Other ingredients may be added to reduce tooth sensitivity, fight bad breath, or remove plaque and stains.
