The article discusses the use of dentifrices in dental care and hygiene and examines dental literature on dentifrices. The effects of advertising and toothpaste taste on dentifrice usage are explored. The abrasion of dental enamel caused by dentifrice usage is examined and a classification of the abrasiveness of various available dentifrices is presented.
