Let’s Talk Toothpaste!

You use it everyday (probably more than once a day). But why do you pick the brand of toothpaste you buy?

Is it a trusted brandname? Tastes good? Says it’s for kids?

Let’s do a comparison…

Here is an “all natural” toothpaste for children. Take a look at the ingredients. The first one is fluoride. If you still believe fluoride is good for your teeth, please do some research.

It tells you if more than a pea size of toothpaste is swallowed to call poison control! Is that what you REALLY want to brush your children’s teeth with (or yourself for that matter)? What about Carrageenan or Sodium laurel sulfate? Have you researched those? Just google them and you will find lots of info.

If this is what is in a “natural” toothpaste for children, can you imagine what is in your typical commercial toothpaste? Check your labels and you will be surprised. Then research the ingredients and decide it you really want to be putting that in your mouth, where so much is absorbed into your mucous membranes.

 

What other choices are there? I can tell you what I use exclusively. Young Living has a few different toothpastes, to include one for children. My favorite is Dentarome Plus. It is more “airy” and like a baking soda toothpaste, but they have 2 others (Dentarome Ultra and Aromabright) that are more like a paste. Then they have KidScents Slique Toothpaste for kids.

Here are the ingredients for the kids toothpaste:
