Why toothpaste should be slightly acidic?
Asked by Nimmi | 6th May, 2018, 11:46: PM
Toothpaste should be slightly basic.
After having food, the bacteria present in the mouth will feed off the sugar and produces acid and that can cause tooth decay.
So, to neutralise this acid toothpaste should be slightly basic.
