The Difference Between Dental Gels and Toothpaste
A lot of popular toothpaste brands contain harsh abrasives and ingredients that do not have any role in cleaning teeth. While many people believe the abrasives in toothpaste help keep their teeth clean, this isn’t always true. It’s actually your toothbrush that does most of the cleaning. In addition to being only marginally effective at keeping teeth clean, the abrasives found in many toothpastes can damage tooth enamel. This puts you at a greater risk for tooth sensitivity, cavities and other dental problems.
Switching to a plaque removing dental gel can help you prevent tooth enamel damage. These gels often contain less abrasives, many of which contain zero abrasives. This protects tooth enamel and prevents irritation of the gums. Unlike regular toothpaste, which causes foam and large bubbles to form, tooth gel creates millions of smaller bubbles. The small size of these bubbles make it possible to clean all areas of the mouth as they enter even small crevices in the teeth. Not only does this provide a deeper clean than regular toothpaste, it also creates less mess when brushing. Dental gel will not foam in your mouth like regular toothpaste and it comes in many different forms too.
What is Plaque Removing Dental Gel?
Interested in plaque removing dental gel for your dental needs? This is a great option to consider because not only does it help to get rid of plaque on your teeth, but it can also have other benefits such as serving cosmetic purposes, pain relief, and even disease prevention. Dental gels are a great addition to your brushing and flossing regiment, and are often used when you go to the dentist for a teeth cleaning
Dental gels are usually applied by dentists, but you can also get them from LIVFRESH. Whitening gels, fluoride gels, and hydrochloride gels all can be applied on your teeth to help to prevent tooth decay and keep them healthy and looking bright. Tartar removing dental gel is another great addition to consider. It will help you get rid of those stubborn calcified spots that sit on your teeth and gums.
What is Plaque Removing Toothpaste?
Stopping and taking a second to consider what toothpaste is made out of is something extremely important to think about. Every kind of toothpaste features two key ingredients, abrasives to help scrub plaque, tartar, and food from your teeth, and surfactants to make your toothpaste foamy so you can lather your teeth for optimal cleanliness.
The two most effective toothpastes to purchase include plaque removing toothpaste and tartar removing toothpaste. Both help you to combat the extra debris on your teeth. Fluoride free toothpaste is another trusted option to choose from if you have a sensitivity to fluoride.
No matter what your needs are when it comes to choosing a new toothpaste, the first step towards working on your oral health is not only knowing what your toothpaste is made out of, but also the different kinds of toothpaste to buy based on your oral health needs.
Why & When You Should Choose Dental Gels
Dental gels are great to use when it comes to taking care of your teeth. They are helpful if you wear braces, dentures, or have a tooth or gum sensitivity. Dental gels can also help to strengthen, soothe, and even desensitize your gums and teeth.
You can choose from tartar removing dental gel or plaque removing dental gel to help fight pain relief, to prevent different dental diseases, along with removing stubborn plaque and tartar build up on your teeth and gums.
Using dental gels can also give you fresher breath by eliminating bad-breath causing bacteria in the mouth. They also help keep the dentin layer, the second layer of your teeth protecting the nerves, from being exposed to cold or hot air, food, or drinks.
Choosing a Quality Dental Gel
As mentioned above, quality dental gel can clean teeth and remove plaque better than toothpaste. However, it’s important to note that not all dental gels are created equal. Most toothpaste brands offer both a paste and gel version. Found on the dental aisle of your local grocery or department store, these gels do not provide the same benefits as quality dental gels. Although sometimes less abrasive than the paste version, store bought gels can contain abrasives as well.
LIVFRESH Dental Gel Provides Long-Lasting Results
LIVFRESH Dental Gel cleans teeth better than toothpaste. In fact, studies show our dental gel cleans teeth and removes plaque 250% better than a leading toothpaste brand. In addition to providing a deeper clean, LIVFRESH Dental Gel also prevents plaque and tartar from forming in the first place. This is important, as tartar build-up increases the likelihood of cavities, tooth decay, and progressive gum disease.
With toothpaste, it’s nearly impossible to clean hard-to-reach areas such as in-between the teeth and along the gum line. Unfortunately, neglecting these areas can lead to tooth decay and painful infections caused by build-up of bacteria. LIVFRESH Dental Gel makes it possible to clean all areas of the mouth, even hard-to-reach places. This protects teeth and keeps harmful bacteria at bay.
