When I discussed what I was researching and writing about to my husband, his first reaction was that fluoride was necessary to protect the cavities. Fluoride specifically prevents tooth decay or gum disease by preventing plaque bacteria from producing tooth damaging acids and by re-mineralizing the enamel of the tooth. However, fluoride appears to be most effective in stopping children’s teeth from rotting but has little, if any, effects on permanent teeth. Since fluoride is harmful, my question is why use it when there are benefits for a small segment of the population? And while fluoride is supposed to be the best addition to toothpaste since it battles acid on your teeth, there’s another vote for baking soda here: it’s alkaline, so it neutralizes acids contained on your teeth. Feel free browse this site for more details.
I ‘m focusing on cleaning up my chemical hygiene habits, particularly SLS, saving money and greening it up. My baking soda and salt mixture will remain my favourite tooth powder until it’s proved to me that it’s a bad idea. Stay tuned, and continue to brush and floss regularly.
Tooth Whitening Strips and Whitening Gels: Whitening gels are bleach-based gels, physically crystal clear to the surface of your teeth that can be used effortlessly with a small brush. It is proposed that this procedure should be carried out twice a day for a duration of 14 days; effects can be seen within a couple of days and are said to last 4 months. The severity of the gels varies; some are dangerous for home use, and can cause gum soreness and irritation to the tooth. Whitening gels can be a little difficult to use and it can be clever to spread the gel absolutely uniformly to all the teeth. Whitening strips are just that, small, usually limpid gluey stripes with a hydrogen peroxide-based gel cover that is applied to the upper and lower teeth twice a day for an period of 30 minutes. Effects can usually be seen after a few days, and continued use is required for at least 14 days, although this varies from whitener to product. The outcomes will last for 4 months. The strips do not always rest on the spot and some can cause hypersensitivity and discomfort, but a simple, non-time-consuming method of whitening the tooth is quiet.
