Interesting fact: we are not born with this bacteria. It is given to us through someone else’s spit, usually before our second birthday. Usually by our mother. Not on purpose but through loving actions such as sharing utensils or food or spit cleaning a pacifier. (I can’t remember where I read that but I believe it was in one of Dr. Sear’s books)
So, back to the dentists. I have a theory:
Toothpaste is supposed to help prevent cavities.
Dentists promote certain brands of toothpaste.
Dentists make more money when people have cavities than when their teeth are healthy.
It would make no logical sense for a dentist to promote something that would put him/her out of business.
Therefore those toothpastes probably don’t do what the advertisements and packaging claims. In fact, they may be part of the problem.
