Modern Dentistry With No Oxen Hooves In North Dallas

One of the critical habits for good dental health is brushing your teeth every day with an effective toothpaste. There is a wide variety of toothpastes available. At The Richardson Dentist, we recommend you use one with fluoride and make sure it has the ADA seal. This ensures that the toothpaste has been tested, claims are being met, and the ingredients are correct.

A toothpaste may have a whitener among its ingredients, but that doesn’t mean it has fluoride, and it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily good for your teeth.

Toothpaste as we know it has only been in existence since the late 1800s. The earliest evidence of toothpaste or dental cream goes back a lot further than that, though: all the way back to 3000-5000 BC. The Ancient Egyptians pulverized oxen hooves, egg shells, pumice, myrrh, and water creating one of the earliest forms of toothpaste.

The Greeks and Romans began adding crushed bones and bark to the mix. The taste must have hard to take. During this same time the people of China and India were using a similar paste, but adding flavorings, like Ginseng and herbal mints making it a bit more palatable.

We’re lucky to be in an age where the variety is so great! All sorts of flavors and effects are on the market. Just remember to read the ingredients, and get something with fluoridate and the ADA seal.
