Couto Medicinal Toothpaste was created by Dr. Alberto Ferreira Couto, on June 13th 1932 in the city of Porto in Portugal. The doctor, helped by a dentist who was a friend of his, created a toothpaste, to protect the gums against gingival recession. This natural product was so effective that in its native country, saying “Couto Paste” is still synonymous with toothpaste.
Couto toothpaste not only cleans teeth, it disinfects the mouth as well. Thanks to its antiseptic properties it fights mouth infections and inflammatory conditions and prevents cavities.
Couto should be administered with a quality toothbrush, rubbing teeth and gum-border, so that toothpaste penetrates in the spaces between the teeth. The toothpaste shall be left in contact with the mucous-membrane for one or two minutes, before rinsing the mouth with water - this will maximise the effectiveness in reducing gum recession.
