Is it harmful for teeth to use listerine ( fluoride mouthwash) ?

Use mouthwash 1x/day to remove 1-2% of bacteria. ...Read more

Why do we use sodium flouride instead of calcium flouride in our toothpastes, mouthwashes etc? It's much less toxic than sodium flouride.

Why do we use sodium flouride instead of calcium flouride in our toothpastes, mouthwashes etc? It's much less toxic than sodium flouride.

Not bio-available: The short answer is that calcium Fluoride is so extremely insoluble as to be considered unusable by your body. Sodium and stannous fluorides are able to be broken down and then the fluorides can enter into and bond with the enamel. Enamel is made of a ring of ions and the Fluoride substitutes in the center to form a more stable ring. This new "ring" is more resistant to decay. ...Read more

Will regular toothpaste (not whitening toothpaste) whiten teeth?

No : Toothpaste is used mainly to prevent cavities/gingivitis or reduce tooth sensitivity. Regular toothpaste will not whiten teeth and neither will whitening toothpaste. Whitening toothpaste is usually more abrasive and will remove surface stains on the outside of the tooth, but is not absorbed into the tooth to actually whiten your teeth. In other words, it may clean the teeth but not whiten. ...Read more
