Most people think that just picking up any old toothpaste is fine, but that is simply not the case. Choosing the right type is crucial in helping strengthen your enamel naturally. There are a wide variety of things you need to check for to ensure that your teeth are protected.

What Natural Substances You Need In Toothpaste

The first step in finding the best type of toothpaste is looking for specific ingredients. Not all toothpastes have them, but a study published on Pubmed.gov stated that the best toothpastes contained the following items:

  • Sodium chloride
  • Dissolved calcium
  • Phosphate
  • Fluoride ions

These substances are especially crucial in helping treat decreased enamel hardness caused by drinking too much soda. The same study found that these chemicals helped naturally increase enamel strength by up to 12%.

How To Narrow Your Search

If you don’t want to spend hours reading the labels on various toothpaste brands, check them instead for the ADA’s Seal Of Acceptance. This seal guarantees that the toothpaste contains fluoride, one of the most important enamel-hardening substances.

Once you’ve found several brands with this seal, check each of them for their concentration of the previously mentioned items. Try to pick one that has the highest concentrations of each to get the best results.

By following these simple guidelines, you are helping to keep your teeth protected for years to come. That will give you more than enough reason to smile. And make sure you tell all of your friends about these guidelines to help spread the word: you may just start a new toothpaste movement!
