Toothpaste companies have tricked generations of teeth into thinking that we were doing a good job of cleaning them by removing plaque and tarter. This is so, due to the bubbling action that toothpastes create. There are numbing agents (that numb the tongue), as well as wetting ingredients, and fancy flavors- all designed as a trick to make us believe that we are really doing a good job of cleaning our teeth, and removing all that plaque. Most people brush for 30 seconds, believing that they have been brushing for the 2-3 minutes.

The study found that this technique resulted in a 67 percent reduction in plaque, and a 55 per cent reduction of gingivitis & gum bleeding!
So if you are stuck on a desert island without toothpaste, you may actually be better off, and when you are rescued, may even be in better dental health!
