Actually toothpaste does not stop your teeth rotting.
You can clean your teeth just as effectively with a dry tooth brush than one with toothpaste on it.
Toothpaste, like deodorant etc... are just products we're are told are necessary in order to just make profits.
The best way to keep teeth from going bad is to not eat meat and sugar.
Bacteria from meat and foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) stick to your teeth and become acidic eating away at your teeth.
Rough vegy matter keep your teeth clean, and I don't know this for 100% but I heard that your mouth produces an enzyme to protect your teeth (like
most animals) but eating meat destroys this enzyme.
