    Apparently, the correct answer is 'none'. Dentists are finding a lot of toothpaste is extremely abrasive; however, it tastes good so people will brush longer... and they end up damaging the enamel on their teeth. The study said the affects look like the teeth were 'sandblasted' and they were recommending using very little toothpaste, if any.

    Sounds interesting. How could they recommend not using toothpaste? What types of toothpaste were tested? Link, please?

    Rembrandt's premium with peroxide has quite the price tag for a small tube of toothpaste, but I feel like I seriously just left the dentist after using it.

    interesting study. may i ask what journal it was published in? i'd like to read up on it.

    i personally use colgate total, but as long as you're brushing at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, i don't really care.

    if you're looking for a floss recommendation, i give glide a strong promotion, especially for those with tight contacts and have floss rip on them frequently. i have very tight contacts and these are a breeze to floss with. if you don't have tight contacts, any type of floss will work just fine.

    I like Marvis for when I wake up after getting shitfaced and smoking half a pack of cigarettes. All other mornings I use Tom's of Maine.

    Just started using the new Iso-active Sensodyne. Kinda like it. I like Marvis' flavor but I need the sensitive stuff.

    I just started using Aquafresh Iso-active toothpaste. My doc needed me to switch to the iso-active stuff in preparation for my dental implant surgery.

    Based on how fresh my mouth feels after using this stuff, I'd say their claim that it kills 3 times the bacteria as ordinary toothpaste has some merit. It feels like you're brushing your teeth with foaming mouthwash. Love it. As for it's teeth whitening function... I haven't noticed anything.
