Types of toothpaste, there's one perfect for your teeth

by Wildsmile

Toothpastes are an excellent ally for the cleaning and health of our teeth, but have you ever wondered what sorts of toothpastes exist and what is the ideal toothpaste for you? In this article we tell you.


Types of toothpaste


The wide majority of toothpastes are manufactured mainly for the protection against caries, thanks to their high components of fluorine and other chemicals, which also help to control the bacteria that cause plaque, tartar and some gum diseases.


1. Anti-caries toothpaste


This kind of toothpaste has a high content of fluoride, which will help to strengthen your teeth, creating a sort of protective layer, making them more resistant to the bacteria that cause cavities. Its use is highly recommended for people who do not have cavities.


2. Sensitive teeth toothpaste


This type of toothpaste contains chlorhexidine, which acts as an adjuvant in the treatment of gum diseases, as it reduces inflammation of the gums and strengthens them. This toothpaste is highly recommended for patients with bruxism, that is, those who grind their teeth when they sleep.

3. Anti-tartar toothpaste


This sort of toothpaste contains pyrophosphate, which helps us to block the formation of tartar. If for some reason you already have tartar, this paste is ideal for you, as it helps to eliminate it.


4. Whitening toothpaste


This type of toothpaste contains whitening chemicals that help remove stains or pigmentation caused by tobacco, wine and coffee. So, if you're one of those people who is a regular consumer of these substances, this toothpaste is ideal for you.


5. Children´s toothpaste


This kind of toothpaste is made for a pleasant taste, this helps to make children interested in brushing their teeth, thanks to its flavour. It also contains less fluoride and abrasives, due to the child´s teeth are more sensitive than adult´s.


As you may have noticed, there are several types of toothpastes, each one developed to treat different diseases and conditions. Remember that toothpastes are not everything and of course, they do not replace regular visits to the dentist.
