Not every toothpaste is good toothpaste
Twice a day, 3 minute long – basically, that is what a regular person knows about brushing teeth and gentle dental care. Toothpaste comes in many forms, mild minty or with fruity taste. Everything is out there, but did you actually know that it can harm your teeth and your dental implants? (If you want more information about cheap implants and not toothpaste, read our ‘dental bridge or implant‘ article). This article aims to give you information about harmful toothpaste.
Which toothpaste is harmful?
This begins with a lady dentist from Virginia, who saw more and more frequently little blue dots on the gum of her patients. She researched, and came to the result: these small remains are plastic, which many types of toothpaste contain. Yes, toothpaste can contain plastic. No, they actually shouldn’t be invited. An affordable tooth implant on the other hand should be on the guest list. So should gentle dentistry. Gentle dental care party all the way!
No plastic, thank you!
Harmful toothpaste contains the same plastic which the dumpsters are made of, such as bulletproof vests or your coffee cup from the vending machine. It consists mainly of polyethylene, an environmentally harmful substance that is never completely eliminated. Over time, these particles migrate from the toothpaste to the tooth neck. Inflammation and periodontal diseases are the result. And in the worst case, an inflammation may result in a tooth extraction. If you do not replace your missing tooth (or only replace it after a long time), it can lead to bone loss.
What is the replacement for the root of a missing tooth? A dental implant, which is cheaper by 70% abroad. The dental implants must also be treated like real teeth, because these also need proper gentle dental care. Harmful toothpaste does not only harm your natural teeth, but also your excellent and affordable tooth implant. Your gentle dental care might not be so gentle on your teeth, if you use harmful toothpaste.
More and more dentists inform their patients about the devastating effect of these ingredients in their toothpaste. The reason behind the usage by the manufacturers is incomprehensible to them: The particles are there just for decoration. They do not have any other advantages for your gentle dental care.
Before storming a drugstore, check if your beloved toothpaste has plastic in it. If it does, you have my permission to storm a drugstore. Quietly, that is. Gentle dental care without plastic particles is our motto!
