Is Your Natural Toothpaste Effective?
Dental care can be confusing but it doesn't have to be. As a mom and a nurse, I know how important it is to maintain good oral health.
I also understand how confusing it can be to stand in the dental health aisle of a store and try to choose dental products based on their flashy marketing claims.
It gets even more confusing when you know to avoid what I call “toxipaste” - dental products with fluoride and toxic chemicals - and start looking for “natural” toothpaste.
Natural ingredients are extremely important - I get it! However, there's more to dental care than just being natural. To truly be effective, dental products MUST provide three essential things. Miss any one of these, and the product will not be able to prevent and heal cavities and gum disease.
