Regular check-ups at the dentist and a good dental health regime are key components in oral care. But the choice of toothpaste is also important. Analysis of nine top toothpaste brands revealed that none of the nine actually protects tooth enamel or prevents erosion of the teeth despite manufacturers’ claims to do so.

– Preventing enamel damage
– Fighting hypersensitivity
– Halting tooth erosion
Brushing incorrectly and using the wrong brush are the chief culprits in causing problems as “erosion is one of the causes of dentin exposure” which leads to sensitive teeth.
