The U.S. toothpaste industry has grown by more than half in the past decade.

And while prices are down, there are still plenty of things that people are still paying to use toothpaste. 

One of those things is dental hygiene products, which have been in a steady decline.

A study released this week found that Americans spent an average of $3,000 on toothpaste annually, compared to an average $3.50 per person in 2000.

That’s up from an average annual price of $1,100 in 2008, according to the study.

The study analyzed a sample of 1,600 Americans who filled out a questionnaire, and researchers estimated that toothpaste use dropped by 9.7% in that time period.

A growing number of consumers are opting out of toothpastes in favor of more affordable alternatives.

And in 2017, the American Dental Association warned toothpasters that their products are no longer safe to use in areas where it is unsafe to have toothpaste, such as in hospitals, offices and homes where it can cause bacterial infections. 

But there’s still a price to be paid for using toothpaste: it can lead to dental erosion.

The researchers at the University of Texas-San Antonio compared toothpaste prices for consumers across the United State, comparing them with toothpaste costs for people living in rural areas.

The researchers found that toothpasting costs in the rural counties rose by more in 2017 than in other states. 

The price increases come amid a national trend of toothbrushing and brushing out of people’s homes, according the study, which was conducted by the University at Buffalo’s School of Public Health and Population Sciences.

People in rural communities also tend to have lower levels of social support and less access to health care.

This is where the problem with toothbrushes comes into play.

According to the researchers, people who lived in counties with higher toothbrushed rates tended to have higher levels of poverty and were less likely to have access to dental care.

Toothbrushing also was associated with lower income and educational attainment.
