Toothpaste is a kind of paste used to clean teeth, usually with a toothbrush. It’s color sometime white, but there are other colors. It must contain fluoride.

  • Choose a toothpaste that contains enough fluoride. Fluoride works to keep the teeth to prevent cavities. However, children under 3 years should not use toothpaste. The reason, too much fluoride it is not good and makes teeth more brittle.
  • Choose a toothpaste that does not foam too much. Foam that too many shows that the content of detergent in it too much. Opinion that the more foam the better, of course not true.
  • Avoid eating immediately after brushing teeth. Because the acid levels will drop and fluoride mouth will lost, so that bacteria will enter again. Meals should be 1-2 hours after brushing teeth.
