Toothpaste is a paste (obviously) or a gel used to maintain healthy teeth and gums, and to improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. It is almost always used in conjunction with a toothbrush. Its use can promote good oral hygiene: it can aid in the removal of dental plaque and food particles from the teeth.
It can also aid in the elimination or prevention of bad breath, and it can deliver active ingredients such as fluoride to prevent tooth and gum disease.
Most people in developed countries consider this product to be a necessity and use it daily. Unfortunately, too few people understand the importance of brushing two or more times a day. Nor do they understand the importance of learning and using the proper brushing technique.
