WHAT DOES TOOTHPASTE CONTAIN?

Most toothpaste contains the same ingredients. Some specialized toothpaste for whitening or sensitivity can contain added chemicals. But usually, you can find these ingredients in your toothpaste:
1. Detergents: These chemicals are the reason your toothpaste foams as you brush.

2. Fluoride: Most toothpaste contains fluoride which can help keep your enamel strong and prevent cavities.

3. Coloring: Most toothpaste manufacturers add coloring to make their product more appealing.

4. Abrasives: These chemicals fight against plaque buildup. However, if a toothpaste’s RDA value is above 250, it can cause damage to your dental health.

5. Humectants: Humectants retain water in your toothpaste. This gives it its paste-like consistency.
