toothpaste

A tooth-cleaning preparation containing a fine abrasive powder, such as chalk, a little soap or detergent, some flavouring, often peppermint, and some sweetening agent and, ideally, a fluoride salt. Many dentifrices also contain a chemical to coagulate protein in the tooth tubules and desensitize them to acids and temperature changes.

Patient discussion about toothpaste

Q. Is it safe to buy toothpaste, medicine,etc. from Taiwan and Hong Kong? Aren't they also Chinese products? I am very much interested in tourism. Each year I plan to go to one famous place in each country. This time I am planning to go to Taiwan and Hong Kong. Here my wife asked me to buy some thing from the country to remember my trip. Is it safe to buy toothpaste, medicine, food, etc. from Taiwan and Hong Kong? Aren't they also Chinese products?

A. about medications- it's always wise to take with you several medications that you may need in your trip. depending on where you are going to. i went to a trip to south America and luckily took medications for Amoebas...not that Bolivia don't have medication but it always good to use a familiar company. about the other products- Taiwan is open to western culture and therefor have products from well known companies- it shouldn't be a problem and i wouldn't worry about it!

have a nice trip!!
