Toothpaste not only keeps the mouth clean but prevents cavities, stained teeth and periodontal diseases.
Plaque is bacteria that is adhered to the tooth. Just one centimeter of plaque can contain one hundred million bacterium. It is difficult to rinse plaque with just water as it strongly adheres to the teeth. Plaque buildup causes not only poor oral health but bad breath, cavities, and periodontal diseases so it is important to brush teeth thoroughly using a toothbrush. It is possible to remove plaque with just a toothbrush but by using toothpaste, you can prevent the formation of plaque. Toothpaste, being a highly viscous paste, allows the active ingredients of the toothpaste to absorb deeply into the periodontal pocket or gums. If toothpaste is too hard, it is difficult to squeeze out of the tube and if too runny, one ends up using too much toothpaste and it is difficult to get on the brush. Viscosity has a very important role in the makeup of toothpaste.
