Each toothpaste has unique formula. Let\u2019s see what are the ingredients of toothpaste.\r\n\r\nMost of the toothpaste on the market has similar ingredients.\r\n\r\nFluoride: This ingredient will strengthen teeth for acid inside foods and beverages. It will prevent tooth decays. It is found as\u00a0sodium mono-fluorophosphate,\u00a0stannous\u00a0(tin) fluoride or\u00a0sodium fluoride\u00a0on labels\r\n\r\nAbrasives: Cleaning property of toothpaste comes from these ingredients. It will eliminate tooth stains and dental plaque. It is found as calcium phosphate, alumina\u00a0calcium carbonate, and\u00a0silica\u00a0on labels. Some toothpaste has high abrasive property to harm enamel and create sensitivity.\r\n\r\nDetergents: These agents will make a foam but has no effect for cleaning purposes. Most common type is\u00a0sodium laurel sulphate(SLS). A researched showed that this agent increases canker sores. To decrease the taste of detergent, high amount of sweetener and aroma is used.\r\n\r\nHumectant: This prevents the toothpaste to dry and keep it intact. This ingredient is often written as\u00a0glycerine,\u00a0sorbitol\u00a0and aqua.\u00a0Xylitol\u00a0Is humectant that prevents tooth decay. But these ingredients isn\u2019t used often.\r\n\r\nStabiliser: The texture of toothpaste is determined by stabilisers like\u00a0carrageenan,\u00a0cellulose gum, and\u00a0xanthan.\r\n\r\nPreservatives: These ingredients will prevent formation of microorganisms, and helps the toothpaste to be stored at room temperature. It is written as\u00a0sodium benzoate, methyl\u00a0paraben, ethyl paraben,\u00a0triclosan.\r\n\r\nAroma: These ingredients is added to supress strong smell and smell and taste of detergents.\u00a0Limonene\u00a0and\u00a0eugenol are some of the aromatic substances in toothpaste.\r\n\r\nSweetening Agent: The sweet taste of toothpaste is given by these ingredients. Artificial sweetening agents may be used to prevent tooth decay. Most common sweetening agents are\u00a0(sodium) saccharine, and\u00a0sorbitol.\r\n\r\nDye: If these synthetic dye agents are not added, toothpaste make look ugly. 5-Digit codes starting with\u00a0Cl\u00a0letters (like Cl 12345) identifies the colour.\u00a0Titanium dioxide is one of the whitening agents in toothpaste.
