Non abrasive toothpaste

The word ‘abrasive’ is a scary word to use in relation to toothpaste.  After all, you wouldn’t rub your teeth with sandpaper! But for a toothpaste to do its job properly, it does have to use abrasive ingredients.

The problem is that if toothpaste is too abrasive it can damage tooth enamel leading to sensitivity and cavities.  Plus the yellow dentin beneath may start to show, making teeth look discoloured.

The trick is to find a toothpaste with low abrasivity.  One that is strong enough to clean but gentle enough not to do damage. And one that also contains ingredients that repair and strengthen tooth enamel. Therefore striking a balance between cleaning and protecting.
