Colloidal Silver Toothpaste: What It Is and Why You Need It

October 01, 2019

colloidal silver toothpaste

You’ve probably never heard of colloidal silver toothpaste before, but you’ve certainly heard of gum disease, cavities, and fluoride. 

If you’re like most Americans, you’ve been using one of Colgate’s or Crest’s countless toothpaste variations for as long as you can remember. But you still get cavities, your gums bleed when you floss, and your teeth never look as white as promised. So what gives?

The truth is, we’ve been taught to trust toothpastes that don’t actually improve oral health. Despite their fancy names like “3D Whitening Brilliance Blast” and “Pro-Health Advanced”, these products aren’t formulated to address the real causes of cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems. 

Colloidal silver toothpaste is different. It’s made with the same ingredients as Dirty Mouth Toothpowder and includes powerful colloidal silver to stimulate healing you never knew was possible.

Here's everything you need to know about the best colloidal silver, its benefits, and how to use it safely to improve your smile. 

Is Colloidal Silver Dangerous? Here’s the Truth

You don’t have to look far on Google to find articles questioning the benefits of colloidal silver. Some sources even claim that colloidal silver is dangerous to the body. This may leave you wondering whether colloidal silver is safe to use daily, especially in your toothpaste. It’s a smart question, and you deserve a complete answer!

The Three Different Types of Silver

We can’t have an accurate discussion about the safety or dangers of colloidal silver without first differentiating between the three types of silver: ionic silver, silver protein, and true colloidal silver. The claims against colloidal silver often aren’t against true colloidal silver at all, but against ionic silver and silver protein instead. 

Ionic Silver

If you look at the ingredients of a product labeled as “colloidal silver”, you’re likely to find that it consists mainly of ionic silver. To get technical, ionic silver contains silver ions, or atoms, with a single missing electron. Since an atom’s electrons determine its properties, ionic silver doesn’t behave the same as other types of silver. 

Ionic silver dissolves in water and is highly reactive with other elements. This means that colloidal silver products formulated with ionic silver combine all too easily with other elements in the body. Silver ions are especially attracted to chloride. These elements bond to each other like magnets to form an insoluble compound called silver chloride. 

Unfortunately, silver chloride isn’t good news. Since it’s insoluble, it can’t dissolve inside the body and must be eliminated by the kidneys and urine.

When high concentrations of ionic silver and silver chloride accumulate in the body, a skin condition called argyria develops. This blue-gray discoloration of the skin is usually permanent. It’s one of the few side effects mentioned in criticisms of colloidal silver, despite the fact that real colloidal silver can’t cause argyria at all!

Silver Protein

Silver protein is also labeled frequently (and inaccurately!) as colloidal silver. This type of silver contains metallic silver particles suspended in a polymer protein solution like gelatin or casein. Silver protein particles are enormous and measure up to 1,000 times larger than a true silver colloid particle. Such large particles lead to dangerously high concentrations of silver, as high as 20,000 parts per million in some products. 

In addition to putting users at risk of argyria from such high concentrations of silver, the gelatin sheath surrounding silver protein particles inhibit silver’s natural ability to kill pathogens.

Instead, researchers have found bacteria and fungus growing on the surface of silver protein products. This creates a serious risk of infection if silver protein is used in or near the sinus cavities, eyes, ears, or lungs. 

Silver Nanoparticles- The Best Colloidal Silver

True colloidal silver is entirely different from the dangerous versions made with silver protein or ionic silver.

Safe and therapeutic colloidal silver consists of silver nanoparticles, not ions or proteins. These nanoparticles don’t combine with other elements in the body or accumulate to cause disease. Instead, they circulate freely through the bloodstream to deliver benefits before being slowly eliminated from the body. 

Unlike other forms of silver, true colloidal silver works at a distance to kill bacteria without coming in contact with them. Colloidal silver functions uniquely in tissues inside the mouth and body as an effective and antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory agent. 

So, Is Colloidal Silver Safe?

The best colloidal silver created with silver nanoparticles is safe and therapeutic. You only run into trouble when you purchase a knock-off product masquerading as real colloidal silver. So how can you differentiate real colloidal silver from the fakes?

Colloidal silver has been used for thousands of years to support everything from the immune system to digestive health.

I have always trusted colloidal silver to help my children with pink eye or ear pain. In fact, a member of our customer service team here at Primal Life Organics just used colloidal silver to treat a stubborn ear infection — and it worked!

Here’s the bottom line: the dangers and issues raised about colloidal silver refer to low-quality or downright fake forms. You can safely ingest one daily teaspoon of the best colloidal silver to boost your immune system or use it in your mouth and on your skin for its many therapeutic benefits. 

The Benefits of the Best Colloidal Silver In Your Mouth

Colloidal silver is best known as an antibacterial and antimicrobial agent. Researchers have documented 650 different disease-causing organisms that were destroyed just minutes after exposure to small amounts of colloidal silver. 

These properties make the best colloidal silver very useful as an alternative to antibiotics, wound care, and skin care medication. A few of the most popular colloidal silver treatment uses include pink eye, pneumonia, sinusitis, and the common cold. But what about the use of colloidal silver for the teeth and gums?

Most standard toothpastes use water to bind ingredients together and create a paste texture. But water can grow bacteria over time. Tap water only has a shelf-life of six months because the chlorine used to treat microorganisms eventually dissipates and allows bacteria and algae to grow. 

Colloidal silver is the perfect alternative to water in toothpaste. Since it’s naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial, no preservatives are required to keep colloidal silver toothpaste fresh and safe. It also easily binds natural toothpaste ingredients like clays, baking soda, and essential oils. 

Beyond the practical product applications of colloidal silver, this powerful ingredient can protect and enhance your oral health in a few important ways. 

Stimulates the Parotid Glands

Colloidal silver stimulates the parotid glands. Even if you’re not familiar with their name, you’re familiar with their function. The parotid glands sit on each side of your face to secrete saliva. 

Saliva is so much more than just “spit”! It influences every aspect of your oral health. By stimulating the parotid glands, colloidal silver supports the ongoing production of saliva and the many critical roles it plays in your mouth:

  • Protects oral and perioral tissues of the mouth
  • Prepares food to be swallowed
  • Uses enzymes to breakdown food and prepare for digestive processes
  • Enhances taste and enables speech by lubricating and moving oral tissue
  • Dilutes sugar and neutralizes acid production
  • Cleans and removes debris from teeth

You may not fully appreciate the significant responsibilities of saliva until you experience dry mouth. Dehydration, certain medications, and some pre-existing health conditions compromise the function of the parotid glands and leave the mouth, tongue, and lips feeling extremely dry. If left untreated, dry mouth can cause everything from tooth decay and problems speaking to chronic bad breath and infections. 

Colloidal silver combats the effects of dry mouth by stimulating additional saliva production. It also makes a healthy mouth even healthier by carrying calcium, phosphate, and other minerals into the enamel of your teeth. These minerals are essential to maintain strong teeth and prevent brittleness and sensitivity. 

Deep Cleans Gum Tissue

In addition to stimulating saliva production, colloidal silver also works its way into the small pockets of your gum tissue called sulci. These tiny crevices sit where your teeth meet your gums. Bacteria love to burrow into tiny sulci and trigger gum disease. Colloidal silver gently cleanses all sulcus spaces to naturally remove dangerous bacteria and reduce inflammation. 

Tips to Maximize the Results of Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver is available to purchase in liquid form, but if you really want to maximize the benefits to your teeth and gums, I highly recommend using Dirty Mouth Toothpaste, Boost Gum Serum, and a charcoal toothbrush. When used together, this regimen can transform your oral health and revitalize your smile. 

Dirty Mouth Toothpaste

Dirty Mouth Toothpaste uses the same nurse-formulated recipe of Dirty Mouth Toothpowder. It includes the addition of colloidal silver for added benefits and a simple, mess-free paste formula. 

Three natural clays form the basis of Dirty Mouth Toothpaste: bentonite clay, white kaolin clay, and French Green Clay.

Each clay nourishes the mouth by delivering unique benefits you definitely won’t find in standard toothpaste products:

  • Bentonite clay is a non-toxic, mineral-rich substance that removes tartar from your teeth and gently scrubs your gums. This clay is also loaded with silica, calcium, zinc, potassium, and magnesium to accelerate the remineralization of your teeth and prevent cavities, sensitivity, and infection. 
  • White kaolin clay also delivers vital minerals and nutrients like calcium, silica, zinc, and magnesium. Its gentle astringent properties also whiten and polish the teeth.
  • French Green Clay is another natural ingredient with powerful absorptive properties. It quickly cleanses gum tissues of oils, toxins, and impurities.

With the help of baking soda to neutralize acids in the mouth and remove odors, Dirty Mouth Toothpaste interrupts the formation of plaque and bacteria around your gums to keep your teeth healthy, strong, and white.

Adding colloidal silver into this toothpaste makes it even more powerful. Colloidal silver creates an oral environment where harmful bacteria can’t thrive. These bacteria hate oxygen, silver, and alkalinity, the three things that colloidal silver delivers!

Even if you’re dealing with acid erosion, dry mouth, bad breath, weak enamel, or other common oral issues, Dirty Mouth Toothpaste delivers the ultimate blend of ingredients powerful enough to revitalize the health of your mouth in just a few short weeks. 

Even if you have mercury amalgam fillings, Dirty Mouth Toothpaste is safe to use twice a day. Benefits of regular use are:

  • Repairing acid-weakened enamel
  • Protecting against future enamel erosion
  • Supporting balance of healthy oral bacteria
  • Cleansing mouth tissues and gums
  • Whitening teeth by removing surface stains
  • Fresh breath
  • Relieving pain caused by tooth sensitivity

Try finding a fluoride toothpaste that delivers such a long list of real results!

Boost Gum Serum

Most people haven’t even heard of gum serum. Why is it that the oral care industry offers hundreds of different toothpaste, mouthwash, and toothbrush options, but doesn’t even address the gums? It’s impossible to keep a beautiful smile with diseased gums, so wouldn’t it make sense to make gum health a priority instead of a side thought? 

I decided to address this issue myself by formulating Boost Gum Serum Think of it like a hair or skin serum, but for your gum tissue. Its 11 essential oils thoroughly clean and rejuvenate your teeth, gums, and mucous membranes. 

The toxins and impurities lurking on the surface of your mouth become powerless once this potent combination of tea tree, peppermint, spearmint, lemon, eucalyptus, clove bud, lavender, myrrh, cinnamon, chamomile, and cypress oils take over. Apply your gum serum two to three times per day for best results. 

Activated Charcoal Toothbrush

Don’t be scared by its pitch black color. Activated charcoal is one of the best and most powerful natural whiteners out there! 

Activated charcoal boasts serious absorptive properties. It immediately bond to the molecules responsible for the stains, yellowing, and brown marks on your teeth. As soon as activated charcoal enters your mouth, it begins gently pulling toxins and discoloration-causing molecules from your teeth. All you have to do is spit them into the sink!

Removing so many toxins also reduces oral plaque and inflammation, which helps balance the pH of your mouth. Acidic foods and drinks like coffee, soda, and treats help bacteria (and decay!) thrive. Activated charcoal combats unhealthy pH by removing acidic compounds and keeping your mouth calm. 

The Black Spearmint Dirty Mouth Toothpaste contains activated charcoal to deliver whitening results while you brush. Plus, you can also use a Charcoal Ion Toothbrush to enjoy major benefits including:

  • Gently pulling plaque away from your teeth without damaging enamel
  • Preventing cavities
  • Whitening without the use of harsh peroxide formulas
  • Eliminating bad breath
  • Pulling bacteria from the smallest crevices in your mouth

By protecting your gums from the accumulation of bacteria and acids, your activated charcoal toothbrush can prevent gingivitis and help you maintain a white, confident smile. 

Alternatives to Colloidal Silver

If you’re searching for the benefits of colloidal silver without using it in your toothpaste, consider trying Dirty Mouth Toothpowder instead. This contains the same natural ingredients like bentonite clay, aluminum-free baking soda, activated charcoal, and organic essential oils.

However, it doesn’t include colloidal silver to bind the ingredients since it’s a powder formula. Dirty Mouth Toothpowder offers powerful protection and alkalizes your mouth to fight bacteria and inflammation all day, every day. 

Oregano oil is also a popular alternative to colloidal silver. It offers superior antibiotic properties without harmful antibiotic side effects like reduced vitamin absorption and leaky gut. Its active compounds carvacrol and thymol fight bacteria and viruses to stop them in their tracks. 

Consider adding a few drops of oregano oil into your coconut or olive oil when you perform oil pulling. This method helps oregano oil work into your gum tissue and deliver its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. You can also simply put a drop of the oil on your finger and rub it along your gum line. 

For Better Oral Health, Look Beyond the Store Shelves

It’s easy to grab a $3.00 tube of toothpaste off the shelf and never give it a second thought. But if you do give it a second thought, you’ll realize that your fluoride toothpaste is hurting your oral health instead of helping it.

I made Dirty Mouth Toothpaste because I believe we all deserve a better alternative. We deserve to use toothpaste that nourishes and enhances our teeth and gums instead of wearing away enamel and killing good bacteria!

Our colloidal silver toothpaste uses only the best colloidal silver and proven natural ingredients to transform the health of your entire mouth. You'll notice the difference as soon as you replace fluoride and its toxic friends with Dirty Mouth Toothpaste.

Why aim for oral health that's just "fine" or "alright" when it's so easy to rejuvenate a vibrant, confident smile?

Are You At Risk For Osteoporosis? Open Your MOUTH and Find Out!

October 15, 2019

Open your mouth... and see if you have osteoporosis!

Your dentist may be the first health professional to suspect you have osteoporosis.

Have you ever thought about the density of your facial bones?  Bone is bone, and if your bones are becoming weak, what can your facial bones tell you about the health of ALL of your bones?  There is a good possibility that you can detect osteoporosis by taking a look INSIDE your MOUTH...

Osteoporosis can be difficult to detect, and most patients remain undiagnosed until their bone density decreases to the point that a fracture occurs. However, your dentist may notice symptoms of tooth loss or gum disease that indicates the early stages of osteoporosis. 

Take a closer look inside your mouth!  As with any disease, early detection and prevention is the key to long-term health.
