As adults or children, we indulge ourselves in all sorts of delicacies quite often. Sweets make a constant appearance in your diet and so do polished sugar, artificial colours and flavours. While it is absolutely fine to indulge your taste buds, it is equally important to take care of your mouth, teeth and tongue that undergo a lot of stress during this period.
In olden days, people used salt and neem sticks to brush their teeth. The combination of salt and neem was enough to kill the bacteria in the mouth, protect teeth as well as help with bad breath. However, nowadays, this isn’t a practical solution. Hence, there are many brands that have come up with tooth pastes containing various ingredients to help with all the issues concerning your mouth, teeth, tongue and breath – toothbrushes that help with all sorts of teeth and gums problems, and breath mints and gums as a quick solution.
Let’s take a look at some top oral care products that contain some unique ingredients to tackle the problems of the mouth.
Clove has been part of oral care since ancient times. Even today, grandmothers suggest chewing on a clove to relieve toothache or bad breath. Bringing in that ancient wisdom to your household, Lever Ayush has prepared this toothpaste with clove oil extracts. These oil extracts help strengthen teeth and gums, fight tooth cavity and help destroy any germs or bacteria in your mouth. Clove oil also imparts a spicy aroma that helps with bad breath.
Apart from clove oil, this tooth paste also contains Dasanakanthi Choornam which is an Ayurvedic mix of several natural herbs like Babul, Yashtimadhu, Camphor and Pippali. All these herbs are known for their various anti-bacterial properties in oral care. If you are looking for something organic and natural to fight your tooth and gum problems, this toothpaste is the good bet for you.
Sensodyne has been a leading brand of toothpastes and toothbrushes when it comes to sensitive teeth and gums. Many people suffer this medical condition where their gums and teeth are more sensitive than other people. They cannot use just any toothbrush or toothpaste. Sensodyne brings you a range of toothpastes and toothbrushes that are specifically designed for sensitive oral care. While Sensodyne original is flavour-free, the brand has brought a new range of flavoured toothpastes that are specifically prepared for sensitive teeth to provide relief and help with bad breath with some great flavours.
Sensodyne Sensitive fresh mint flavoured toothpaste is the same original one that provides your sensitive teeth with a protective cover to help combat the sensitivity caused by hot, cold, sweet and other strong flavours, albeit with a minty fresh after taste. You will find that while your sensitive teeth are protected by the fluoride in the toothpaste, your breath smells fresh and cool due to the mint extracts in it.
Charcoal has been used to clean plaque build-up on various surfaces for a long time. Using this technology in toothpaste, Colgate brings you the Total Charcoal Anti Cavity toothpaste which is your best shot at protecting your teeth against plaque and tartar build up. While Colgate as a brand is one of the most trusted in oral care, its unique technique of blending ancient wisdom with science to deal with one of the most common issues of the teeth, makes it a superlative choice for oral care.
The charcoal extracts in this toothpaste build a protective layer on your teeth, preventing the build-up of plaque on your gum line, cleaning your mouth, gums, cheeks, tongue and teeth effectively and deeply. It is an effective solution to many oral problems like cavity, gingivitis, bad breath and coloured teeth.
Children are fussy when it comes to brushing. They eat all sorts of processed sugar, candies and more all day long but might brush properly every day. This can cause some serious oral issues resulting not only in bad teeth but also other major diseases. Colgate Kids brings you the perfect anticavity toothpaste which will make brushing an absolute delight for your kids.
This toothpaste is flavoured with bubble fruit, making it taste really fun. As the fluoride works to protect teeth from cavities and germ build up, the toothpaste leaves your children’s mouth with a minty fresh cool feeling. This toothpaste is specifically designed for children above 6 years as they are developing new permanent teeth. It is formulated with the expertise of paediatric dentists who have contributed to make it the best option for children’s oral care.
We have toothpastes enriched with various ingredients to protect our teeth today. Pepsodent goes a revolutionary step further and brings you the Gum Care+ Toothbrush with Bamboo Salt. This toothbrush has natural bamboo salt infused in its soft tapered bristles that release every time you brush your teeth. Bamboo salt is an ingredient that is known for its antibacterial properties which will protect your teeth and gums against germs and plaque build-up.
The tapered bristles of this toothbrush are specifically designed to deep clean the teeth and gum line effectively. The toothbrush also has a 3-angled neck which helps it reach the back of the mouth to clean easily and deeply. Grooves at the back of the head can be used as an effective tongue cleaner to combat bad breath. As this product is made 100% naturally, it is for those people who want a natural way for oral care.
A sparkling white set of teeth enhances the beauty of any face. However, with increasing stress, food consumption and other issues, getting sparkling white teeth is a problem for many. Keeping those people in mind, Himalaya brings this radical new toothpaste that promises shiny white teeth, along with germ protection and fresh breath.
Himalaya’s sparkling white toothpaste contains an organic combination that is achieved through plant enzyme technology. It contains papain and bromelain, which are active ingredients in papaya and pineapple. Along with these, Himalaya’s sparkling white toothpaste also contains miswak and clove which provide 24X7 germ protection.
Close Up is again one of the top brands in oral care. Close up toothpastes are best known for their constant fight against bad breath and germs. This one contains active zinc mouthwash formulation which helps in fighting germ build up, protecting teeth against food particles, cleaning the mouth thoroughly and deeply. It has microshine crystals which help in whitening the yellowing teeth by forming a protective layer over the enamel.
This toothpaste contains eucalyptus mint gel which is a strong antibacterial. The bacteria in your mouth stay a long time causing bad breath even after you wash your mouth. The eucalyptus mint extract helps in clearing off these bacteria and eliminating bad breath altogether.
When science and technology is used effectively to combat dental problems, you get a breakthrough product like Oral-B Cavity Defense Toothbrush. This toothbrush is designed in a manner to effectively reach all the teeth, even at the back of your mouth, to clear out residual food particles and germs. It is what you may call an all-rounder product.
It is suitable for all types of teeth and gums, including the sensitive ones. This is because Oral-B Cavity Defense Toothbrush has specially made rounded bristles which are ideal for sensitive teeth and gums. Some toothbrushes may have pointed bristles which may lead to gum bleeding and sometimes even enamel removal from the teeth, but these special bristles make sure that you get superior cleaning of your mouth, all the while being gentle on your teeth and gums.
Most chewing gums today have a lot of heavy flavouring and processed sugar which takes a toll on teeth. The whole point of chewing gum to prevent bad breath is negated when processed sugar starts affecting your teeth.
