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.
