Sensitive Teeth – Whitening Toothpaste Abrasion

Dentist West Covina CaliforniaIn an effort to have better plaque and stain removal toothpaste manufacturers add “mild” abrasives as inactive ingredients. The amount of abrasive varies between different brands and even among different formulations of the same brand.

Too much abrasion can literally sand away particles of tooth structure every time you brush.

Considering that we spend close to 24 hours out of every year brushing our teeth (that is if you brush 2 minutes, twice a day) a less abrasive toothpaste could mean the difference between clean teeth and worn-out enamel or root surfaces.
