Are You Brushing Your Teeth Out Of Your Life?

Brush Gently

Many people are brushing their teeth too aggressively and using a toothpaste that is extremely abrasive. Did you know that most whitening toothpastes use abrasion to make your teeth whiter by stripping enamel? This can cause serious long term damage to your tooth enamel and your gums. Charcoal toothpaste can be extremely abrasive due to the sharp edges of the particles.

Abrasive toothpaste and toothbrush damage

You may be taking better care of the finish on your car than your teeth. You hand wash your car to preserve the finish, but you may have used 'sandpaper' to brush your teeth this morning.

There is a safer way to minimize plaque

 

The RDA abrasion rating should be required on toothpaste packaging. There has been some testing of toothpaste abrasion. Most major brands that claim to be whitening your teeth are rated at the mid or high end of the RDA scale.

Do you have sensitive teeth?

Ironically your teeth are probably sensitive due to enamel loss from abrasive toothpaste. They can also damage your gum tissue over time. This damage takes a couple of decades to become a serious problem, so most people don't realize what they have done until it is too late.

Take a look at your toothbrush. Softer is better and make sure you run it under hot water before you use it. This not only will help remove bacteria, but it will also soften the bristles.

Weltip completely changes how we keep our teeth and gums healthy. We recommend using Weltip with our Weltab Pro X water flosser tablets twice per day. Weltabs minimizes plaque and acid producing bacteria.
