Toothpaste is easy right? You just pick a tube and go. There isn’t anything more to it, is there? Well, let’s take a look and see if it is really that cut and dry. There are a lot of choices out there and we want to make sure you have your best smile on.
Wow, that’s a lot of money spent on toothpaste, so many different brands to choose from…. Then you have all your different types within the brands; whitening, anti-cavity, tarter control, sensitive formula, anti-gingivitis, natural, and made for kids. Do you even know what these are for?
Let’s Break it Down so You Know What They Mean to Your Teeth:
Did you know that more toothpaste isn’t always better? A pea sized amount is the perfect amount. Why you ask? More than that can actually do more harm than good. Too much toothpaste can damage your tooth enamel and lead to heightened sensitivity.
Looking for a fun project this weekend? Try making your own toothpaste, it’s fun, try it! It is rather simple too. All you need is baking soda, sea salt, filtered water, and peppermint extract. That’s it! Well, a container to store it in is needed. Take 2/3 cup of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of fine sea salt, 1-2 teaspoons of peppermint extract (depends on how pepperminty you like it) and mix with filtered water to your desired consistency. Then store in a plastic tube, container, or glass jar and use daily.
