Everyone would like healthy gums and teeth, and with the advances in dental care over the last 20 years, people are able to keep their teeth in great condition well into old age. Over this period of time there have also been real advances in the different types of toothpaste available. Today toothpaste will not only help clean your teeth, but also help treat dental conditions, like gum disease and sensitivity. There are even toothpastes that will help whiten your teeth.

Despite these developments many people have used the same toothpaste for much of their adult lives, and their choice of toothpaste is often either a question of brand loyalty or price.

 

Healthy gums need hydration!

Your toothpaste should act as a cleanser with a light abrasive action to help remove plaque and prevent build up of the tartar (Calculus) which can form below the gum line and irritate your gums. However some brands of toothpaste can leave the mouth feeling dry and parched.

Sodium Laurate Sulphate is a chemical agent that is found in many toothpastes and dental products,  it creates a foaming effect in the mouth that makes cleaning feel easier and  fresher. Some users find that the Sodium Laurate drys out the skin in the mouth and makes mouth feel irritated and dry.

If your toothpaste makes your mouth feel like this it may be time to change your toothpaste.
