They strengthen the enamel, the surrounding part of dentine. This way, they contribute to decay-prevention and hypersensitivity. Thus, they boost the glance of the teeth. But don’t overdo it, otherwise the teeth become yellow. So, if you live in a place, where water, salt or other supplies come with fluorides by law, then choose a paste with a lower concentration!
They remove the biofilm, which consists of bacteria, dead cell and remaining food. Unfortunately you have to be very cautious with these chemicals, since they can ignite oral ulcers, gingival irritations or even sometimes bad breath. If you tend to suffer from oral ulcers, choose a paste without sodium sulfates!
It is often used, because it can reduce the production of calculus. But be aware, that it cannot remove the existing calculus and apart from that it can also cause hypersensitivities. It can also lead to gingival irritations. So choose wisely products with low concentrations!
There is a big myth behind this ingredients. Most of the pastes have hydrogen peroxide, also used for hair bleaching, combined with baking soda. These materials can reduce superficial coloration, but they can also damage the enamel, especially baking soda! Please use it with caution and not over longer periods. The safest way is to avoid any paste that has baking soda listed under the ingredients.
