History of toothpaste
Toothpaste is a paste or gel dentifrice which is used with a toothbrush to clean the teeth and maintain good oral hygiene.
Toothpaste and orange is a deadly combination that tastes terrible. One of the main reasons behind this terrible taste is the activity of sodium lauryl sulfate.
In addition to the bleaching property, a hydrogen peroxide toothpaste helps to remove the plaque, cleans the teeth, prevents the formation of cavities and keep the teeth fresh.
Most kinds of toothpaste share common ingredients, such as fluoride, abrasives, flavor, detergents, etc., that are both active and inactive. The active ingredients help to prevent cavities and reduce the risk of gum diseases. The inactive ingredients add taste and texture to the toothpaste.
Toothpaste and toothbrush have been in use since 3000 BC in the ancient civilizations. Toothbrush dates back to 3000 BC. Babylonian and the Egyptian civilization made brushes by fraying the end of twigs. Egyptians are believed to be the founding fathers of toothpaste.
