Fluoride helps the enamel on your teeth but it doesn't do anything to scrub teeth, gums, etc. Stop brushing your teeth for even 2 weeks and go to a dentist and see how they react. Gingivitis, cavities, etc.
I'm sure there is a youtube video that answers this somehow. Just below the antivaxxer ones.OK. My drinking water already has fluoride in it. All it seems toothpaste has going for it is the fluoride and the fact that it uses abrasive silicone to scrape your teeth. Mouth wash is just a burning sensation that "kills" germs.
Do these actually provide any tangible, long term benefits regarding overall mouth health?
Edit for those unable to disassociate toothpaste from brushing: This is not about NOT brushing your teeth. This is about TOOTHPASTE. Do you NEED to brush your teeth with it?
Haha, I hear your opinion, but I’m going to have to politely decline. You do you though.
My dad brushes his teeth but doesn't use toothpaste and his breath will clear a room. I think toothpaste is like using underarm deodorant in which it helps kill off those bacteria that cause a stink. I don't personally use mouth wash though and I don't have bad breath or bad teeth.
Oh that badboy is coming, hope it's one of the firsts of the new year.
