Modern Dentistry In Dallas With No Oxen Hooves

Modern Dentistry With No Oxen Hooves In North Dallas

One of the essential habits of good dental health is daily brushing with an effective toothpaste. There is a wide variety of toothpastes available. At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we recommend you use one with the ADA seal.

That seal ensures that the toothpaste has been tested, claims are being met, and the ingredients are correct. It also means the toothpaste has fluoride, an important ingredient for strengthening teeth.

Toothpaste as we know it has only been in existence since the late 1800s. Fluoride was added in 1914. The earliest evidence of toothpaste or dental cream dates 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 most likely was hard to take. During this same time people in China and India were using a similar paste but adding flavorings, like ginseng and herbal mints making it a bit more palatable.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, we are always happy to recommend a toothpaste for you. Patients come to us from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood for dental implants, complete general dentistry, and much more. Schedule your next checkup today!
