Modern Dentistry In Lithia With No Oxen Hooves

Published on May 6, 2016

Hi, my name is Kernagis Dental Excellence. My team and I at Kernagis Dental Excellence have been providing excellent dental care for our patients in Florida since 2001.

One of the critical habits of good oral health is daily tooth brushing with an effective toothpaste. There is a wide variety of toothpastes available. I 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.

Just because a toothpaste claims to have a ‘whitener’ doesn’t mean it has fluoride.

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 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.

Tampa toothpaste users have no excuse for not brushing their teeth daily with the toothpaste we have available today.

The experienced staff at Kernagis Dental Excellence want to help all Florida smiles be whiter and brighter. Contact us today at 813-321-3261 so we can answer any questions you may have about tooth whitening , invisible braces, or cosmetic dentistry. Kernagis Dental Excellence provides sedation services, cosmetic dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and dental implants.
