Oral care, health and smiles
As well as looking after our hair and skin, cosmetic products help us keep our mouths and teeth healthy. Daily oral hygiene is crucial and plays a decisive role in our overall health.
The mouth is one of our main interfaces with the outside world. A healthy mouth and teeth have a huge influence on overall health, as they can prevent or at least reduce the entry of pathogens. Daily oral hygiene is crucial and plays a decisive role in our overall health. From a purely aesthetic point of view, healthy teeth contribute a great deal to our image.
Cleaning our teeth is how we avoid the accumulation of bacteria, which can damage tooth enamel and lead to cavities. If neglected, this area can cause diseases that can lead to tooth loss.
It is important to point out that not all toothpastes are the same. There are many different varieties, each with a special use and different ingredients. Most of them combine fluoride, to protect against cavities, with other components to prevent plaque and gum disease. They can help people combat plaque with antibacterial agents, such as triclosan.
The population is better informed than ever on oral health and care. This is thanks to the efforts of healthcare professionals and public administrations, whose educational and awareness-raising campaigns have taught the public that oral health improves physical, mental and social well-being, leading to increased use of preventive hygiene.
