Toothpaste

#1 Postby Mini Forklift Ⓥ » Fri Jan 04, 2013 6:17 pm

Just curious to what toothpastes you all use?

I'm using this one at the moment but it's always a bit hit and miss as to whether they have it in stock. Which other ones are good brands to buy? Thanks in advance :)

I refuse to use a toothpaste that doesn't have flouride, so I usually go with Toms Whitening or Toms Multi-care.

Bad unless you want to keep your teeth. Then it's essential.

Excess fluoride can cause mottling of the teeth, and we do pick up a fair bit through our diet.

I've never really used it, that's just my opinion of course but I'll be 36 this year and I don't have a single filling, crown etc. Don't plan on any either! I'm sure there are pro's and cons for both sides :)

I've used fluoride free toothpastes for about 2 years and my teeth got really sensitive to everything. I started to use fluoirated toothpastes again my sensitivity gone away.
Nowdays I use Elmex wich contains amine fluoride http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elmex
But used Oralseven products as well.
Couldn't find any info if these companies test on animals or don't, but helped my teeth a lot.

Alverde, Logona, Dr. Organic, Faith in Nature, Apeiron are probably all vegan, tried alverde, wasn't too satisfied with the results, use apeiron, clean great but after a while my teeth got sensitive

Currently, this one (Apoteket = State-owned apothecary here in Sweden). Mainly because no store at close distance had my favourite Kingfisher:

Fluoride vs no-fluoride... depends where you live. A lot of veggies are watered with water containing high levels of F and some states/countries add fluoride into their water systems - so, added NaF in toothpaste is unneccesary.

anyone who thinks fluoride is a good thing should watch a documentary on utube called "the great culling - our water"

I think SLS is a much bigger problem in toothpaste than fluoride
