Toothpaste: with or without foam?

Dental plaque is the primary cause of cavities, and if it is not removed, it hardens to create tartar, an ideal environment for bacteria growth. The best way to remove plaque is to brush your teeth. You know it, this minty, fresh, unique sensation. Finally, more precisely, this feeling that we appreciate so much comes from the foam of the toothpaste. But is foam essential for a proper tooth brushing? Gadget or necessary? Let's see it now!

 Toothpaste: effective or not?  

First of all, why do we use toothpaste? There are many studies trying to show its effectiveness or not, but isn't toothpaste there to provide us with this unique fresh breath sensation? From both the felt and the social point of view, toothpaste knows how to impose itself as a must-have.

 In the end, is foam important?

If foam is an element present in all toothpastes, even new solid toothpastes, it is because it plays an essential role: it allows the various cleaning elements to be distributed throughout the mouth, even between the teeth. This cleaning action removes plaque and other waste from the mouth. In addition, the foam also plays a psychological role since if it is absent, the feeling of having clean teeth is less present.

Do you know how toothpaste works?

Toothpaste is not a recent invention, it is actually the contrary! There is evidence that it was already used in ancient Egypt during the time of the Pharaohs. They used powdered stone that they mixed with vinegar to make a paste. This is a long way from strawberry or mint flavour! Of course, toothpaste has come a long way since then and is now easier to use – and it tastes better too!

What is in a toothpaste?

Modern toothpastes must effectively clean teeth without damaging the email. They contain several elements: abrasive to help remove plaque, preservatives to prevent bacterial growth, a texture to help the toothpaste stay on the toothbrush and finally, foam to touch plaque, waste and bacteria stuck on the teeth.
