Brushing teeth after meals is a standard guideline to avoid cavities. But there is a new method that was mentioned more potent protection than brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste. Namely, massaging his teeth with a fluoride toothpaste.
‘Massaged her teeth with fluoride toothpaste increased gear protection from damage by 400%, “said Anna Nordström, PhD, a dentist and researcher at the Sahlgrenska Academy at the Univesity of Gothenburg, Sweden a case reported by Science Daily.
8 years ago, a new brand of toothpaste was launched in Sweden and claim to contain 3 times more fluoride than regular toothpaste. These products are available without a prescription and is intended for people at high risk of cavities.
Researchers at the Sahlgrenska Academy University of Gothenburg and then conduct a scientific evaluation of toothpaste containing fluoride is high. Uniquely, this study actually found a new method that can improve the protection of the teeth as much as 4 times higher than the usual method of brushing teeth.

The participants were also asked to brush your teeth 2 or 3 times a day.
“The study found that people who use fluoride toothpaste with a high content of 3 times a day 4 times better protected than those who use ordinary toothpaste two times a day,” says Nordström.
The study also tested the new method developed by Professor Dowen Birkhed, the rubbing and massaging his teeth with toothpaste with your finger. This massage method proved to be as effective as brushing your teeth 3 times a day to increase the amount of fluoride that coats the teeth.
“Massaging the front teeth with toothpaste can be an easy way to strengthen the protection of fluoride in the afternoon after lunch. But it still should not change the habit of brushing with fluoride toothpaste in the morning and afternoon. Method of massage is just extra gear,” said Nordström.
