For me it's Clinx.. it seems to have imbedded grains of sand or the like to help scrub away the smoking and vodka stains..

in fact, i think it's the best i've ever used

Clinx...me too before except my dentist said it wears down the enamel over time and suggested Vitadent which is really good.

I was told by someone that most of the Korean toothpaste didn't contain any fluoride. Does anyone know if this is correct?

Anti Plaque because it has very fine abrasives in it
Second favourite is 2080 cause its very similar to the above.
Clinx is ok too, sand in it is a bit chunky though

My Korean workmate who used salt all his life now has gum disease.

I'm not sure but it could be.
One brand of toothpaste they sell here(don't know if it is Korean) and is easily available is CloseUp. It has fluoride in it.

2080? I don't trust that stuff anymore, after looking really closely on the package one day. Here's what the 2080 means:

당사의 축적된 노하우를 바탕으로 20개의 건강한 치아를
80세까지 보존하자는 치아의 VISION을 실현하기 위해 개발한
제품 입니다.

Loose translation: Using our company's expertise, we developed a product that keeps twenty (20) healthy teeth until the age of eighty (80).

Twenty teeth?!!?!
