Selecting the right tooth care is crucial. For one, no one wants to risk dazzling white and healthy teeth for anything. But, toothpaste, mouthwash, whitener…all that good stuff goes directly into the mouth, and twice a day!! That’s why selecting non-toxic and safe dental products can really make a difference.
Many commercial brand toothpastes include the following: sodium fluoride (used in rat poison), propylene glycol (used in anti-freeze solutions for cars, airplanes and boats), sodium laurel sulfate (used as engine degreasers and car soap), Polyethylene (which is just plain PLASTIC), and Blue Lake, FD & C Lake, (petroleum-derived dyes and known carcinogens….used in your toothpastes to give them color).
Here’s what I use…and LOVE.
- CORAL WHITE TOOTHPASTE: a no fluoride, no preservatives, no lauryl sulfate, no gluten, synthetic color and flavor free formula. Helps to balance the pH in the mouth, build tooth enamel, whitens teeth and freshens breath. http://www.vitacost.com/coral-llc-coral-white-toothpaste-mint
- WHITE 2 NITE: A whitening gel applied with small paint pen. Made out of all natural herbs and extracts with no artificial flavors or colors. Within a few days of using this, I noticed whiter teeth! I use it before bed a few times a week for maintenance. http://www.white2nite.com/
- PERIOWASH: All natural, alcohol-free, lauryl sulfate free mouth wash. Made with organic herbs, along with folic acid, oregano, cinnamon, and clove to support tissue and gum health. http://www.naturesanswer.com/p-810-periowash-winter-mint-16-oz.aspx
So fresh and so clean, clean. And so white and so natural and so safe.
