Toothpastes contain abrasives and detergents that reduce plaque and surface stains. Some toothpastes have ingredients to help strengthen enamel and reduce gingivitis, tartar, sensitivity and bad breath. Natural toothpastes have fewer chemicals and do not contain added chemicals or flavors. Teeth sensitivity can be controlled by using a paste that contains desensitizing agents which help stop sensations (like extreme heat or cold) from reaching the tooth’s nerves.
