One of the important habits of good dental health is daily tooth brushing with an effective toothpaste. There is a wide variety of toothpastes available. At Premier Dental & Oral Health Group in Lake Ozark, we recommend using one with fluoride. Make sure your selection has the ADA seal. This means the toothpaste has been tested, claims are being met, and the ingredients are correct.
Toothpaste as we know it has only been in existence since the late 1800s. But the earliest evidence of toothpaste or dental cream dates back thousands of years.
The Ancient Egyptians pulverized oxen hooves, egg shells, pumice, myrrh, and water for one of the earliest forms of toothpaste. The Greeks and Romans began adding crushed bones and bark to the mix. The taste must have been hard to take.
Today it’s so much easier! There’s a wide variety of toothpastes in any grocery store, from all-purpose toothpaste to those for whitening or sensitive teeth, to children’s toothpaste. Make sure what you choose has fluoride.
