Myth of Smokers Toothpaste

There are some questions that arise when we hear about Smokers Toothpaste. Main concerns are about the results. Does Smokers Toothpaste benefit the teeth of smokers more than it does for non-smokers? Is Smokers Toothpaste better than regular toothpaste? Should you use Smokers Toothpaste as well as regular toothpaste? There are indeed many questions, but the most important one is whether using Smokers Toothpaste is actually better than non-smoking alternatives or not.

Statements that are made by Smokers Toothpaste manufacturers (I will not mention brands) are that it removes stains and freshens the breath. Does it do this better than regular toothpaste? What about the other functions that people expect from their brushing experience, such as general bacterial eradication and plaque removal?

Now at some point, some of you may be thinking that smoking is bad for you, and that all smokers should quit. Very well, all smokers should quit. Then all the hard working people in the factories producing Smokers Toothpaste will go out of business, thus eliminating this crusade for an answer because Smokers Toothpaste will cease to exist. I will not give up that easy! There is still Coffee [-drinkers] Toothpaste! It's probably the exact same formula as Smokers Toothpaste (stain removal etc), but tackling a different market. Damn, now I think that smokers who also drink coffee should now use three different kinds of toothpaste (if Smokers Toothpaste differs from Coffee Toothpaste).

Would coffee-flavored toothpaste be any good?

So the facts are that Smokers Toothpaste (and probably Coffee Toothpaste) includes a kind of grinding substance which will grind your teeth clean of stains. Think of it like using sandpaper to get paint off of your walls. This doesn't sound very healthy, but according to the scientists and doctors who try to market the toothpaste to you (and get cuts of the profits) it's absolutely safe. Come to think of it, I heard that if you own a hamster or some other type of rat you have to put little blocks of wood in the cage for them to chew on, so that their teeth get ground down and don't grow through their skulls. Maybe it's the same for humans, but instead of blocks of wood, we get to use special toothpaste.

I'm actually not hoping for a good conclusion anymore. I was anticipating one when I started off, but that's all gone to hell. If anyone knows any better, please enlighten us in the comments below.

I wonder if there is nicotine-enhanced toothpaste. actually, now that I think about it, there probably is. it probably just isn't advertised. (use **brand name deleted for security reasons**! for your family!) ("mommy, my teeth feel dirty and I don't feel fuzzy anymore, can I brush my teeth and float some more?")

Let's call Kendall's toothpaste the Nicopaste. It would be great for long airplane rides or classes, just take a "drag" from that tube and you're good!

Man, can't even take your 'Nicopaste' on airplanes anymore... If you can't take regular toothpaste, than you can't take Nicopaste...
