Modern Dentistry With No Oxen Hooves In South Elgin

Family Dentistry South Elgin

Hi, my name is Dr. David Rice and my staff and I at David Rice DDS have been providing excellent general dentistry care for the people of the South Elgin area since 1986.

One of the most crucial elements 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 ‘whiten teeth‘ 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.

South Elgin toothpaste users have no excuse for not brushing their teeth daily with the toothpaste we have available today. If you do your part, we at David Rice DDS can provide cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, teeth whitening, and sedation dentistry.

The experienced staff at David Rice DDS want to help make all South Elgin area smiles whiter and brighter. Contact us today so we can answer any questions you may have about South Elgin tooth whitening, root canals, or cosmetic dentistry.
