Surely you too have gone to buy toothpaste at the supermarket or pharmacy and found yourself with a wide range of products, but which one to choose? Often the choice falls on advertised products or a selection based on cost is made because from a health point of view all toothpastes promise to "fight tooth decay", "eliminate plaque", and much more. According to a study carried out by the Cochrane Oral Health Group of the University of Manchester and published in the Daily Mail , the "right" toothpaste would be the one with the highest concentration of fluoride . Here it becomes essential to read the label with the content. In fact, a low fluoride concentration, and by "low" meaning less than 1,000 parts per million, the toothpaste's effect in preventing cavities is equivalent to that of a fluoride-free toothpaste. Conversely, toothpastes with a high concentration of fluoride would be able to reduce the formation of caries by 24%. Generally the products on sale have a concentration ranging from 100 parts per million up to a maximum of 1,400. These conclusions were reached after a review of 79 studies worldwide involving more than 73,000 children. And it is precisely the little ones who need to pay the most attention: in the article it is recommended to avoid toothpastes with high amounts of fluoride in children under the age of six to avoid fluorosis in case of ingestion of significant quantities during washing of the teeth.
