If you regularly read Beautician, then remember what rubble posts about pasta was here three months ago. Against the background of these battles, it was even inconvenient to write something about their pastes. Now the hype has subsided, so I decided to insert my modest ...
For information: I buy all pastes
as in all cosmetics
on my own. For a wallet, this is not very good, but for objectivity it’s good. That’s why I’ll ride through the highly advertised paste in the Beautician Let's start the
horse with teeth from my initial data.
I have 32 teeth, all mine, in good condition, but prone to sensitivity.
Once every six months I do ultrasonic cleaning. Five years ago, for the first and so far only time I did whitening.
The worst thing that happens in the life of my teeth is coffee. I drink indecently a lot of coffee: at least 5 double espresso and 1 flat white or raff per day the
trick is done by a professional stuntman, please do not try to repeat it yourself
So, from toothpaste I need:
1) whitening after decalitres of coffee,
2) a feeling of purity and freshness,
3) removal of sensitivity,
4) the absence of fluoride in the composition - fluoride pastes are contraindicated to me,
Well, love, beauty, happiness and long life will not hurt either.
Now I have 3 pastes at the same time. All three I buy not the first time, and each of them I used to use “solo” earlier, therefore I can objectively and authoritatively compare them with each other.
Let there be a battle ...
1. Curaprox Enzycal Zero
Removes sensitivity from the second application.
It effectively removes plaque due to enzymes. If you brush your teeth at night with Curaprox, then in the morning there will be fresh breath and a feeling of clean teeth - this is a clear indicator of the high quality of cleaning.
There is no pronounced whitening effect.
It has a weak sweet taste, without mint.
I especially want to note its cool composition without fluoride, SLS, triclosan and other disgrace:Water, sorbitol, silicic acid, glycerin, stearet-20, titanium dioxide, flavoring, disodium phosphate dihydrate, carrageenan, sodium chloride, citric acid, sodium benzoate, potassium thiocyanate, glucose oxidase, amyloglucosidase, lactoperoxidase.
Use period: more than 3 years (more than 6 packs)
Cost: about 850 rubles
Curaprox Zero has been my dental love for many years. Looking ahead, I will say that of the three pastes, Curaprox is the best.
2. Theodent Kids with Rennou
The most important thing in this pasta is the cool taste of good milk chocolate. I love to brush Theodent's teeth in the morning - it’s a great uplifter.
Does not contain fluoride.
Theodent relieves sensitivity after 3-4 applications.
Indeed, it bleaches: at least Theodent coffee plaque removes perfectly.
At the same time, it copes with bacteria less effectively than Curaprox
. If you brush your teeth at night with Theodent, in the morning breathing will be generally normal, but not as ideal as after Curaprox.
So I mix Theodent (in the morning) and Curaprox (at night).Output
Period of use: more than 2 years (3 packs)
Cost: about 2700 rubles
Very nice and useful toy. Who can allow - I advise you to try, who can not - do not worry, this is not the most necessary beauty purchase in life.
3. Biorepair Intensive Night Repair
I buy this paste a second time: the first time I bought it out of interest, the second time - due to the lack of more decent alternatives in the pharmacy.
It has a mint flavor closer to bright.
Typically, Biorepair relieves tooth sensitivity after a week of use, but in especially neglected cases (for example, in extremely cold winters) it may not.
I did not notice the bleaching effect.
If you brush your teeth at night with Biorepair, in the morning the teeth will be without a feeling of plaque, but breathing is not very fresh.Conclusions:
Period of use: more than 1.5 years intermittently (2 packs)
Cost: about 800 rubles
In general, the paste is not bad: teeth after it stay in a well-groomed and clean state longer than after ROCS or SPLAT.
If I didn’t have Curaprox, perhaps I would give her 5, but I have Curaprox and I see the difference that there is a paste that is understandable, why-it-is-expensive and there is a paste that is expensive, but it doesn’t work for many better than usual.
Is it worth spending money on expensive pastas?
If you use a regular brush
, a lot depends on the quality of the paste. If the paste does not clean well, then a sensation of plaque on the teeth will appear after a couple of hours. Such a misfortune happened to me with SPLAT pastes: I constantly wanted to brush my teeth.Electric brushes
mechanically clean teeth much better, but are rougher for teeth and gums. Owners of an electric brush often need a paste that well reduces tooth sensitivity.The coolest brushes are ultrasonic
. They clean not only mechanically, but also with ultrasound. Happy owners of such a brush will like pasta for both 100 and 1000 rubles.
Every brush needs getting used to. For example, I like to meditate to clean each tooth with a good soft brush, rather than using electric or ultrasound. Therefore, on the one hand, I save on a brush, but at the same time I have to spend more on high-quality pastes.
Which option is right for you?
