Toothpowder FAQ's

Brush better with Dirty Mouth™ Toothpowder

Dirty Mouth™ Toothpowder is probably unlike anything you’ve used before. It won’t foam like regular toothpaste, and it’s not as sweet. That’s because we don’t add water, fillers, or artificial flavors or sweeteners.

Make it last! Don’t use too much!

We’ve noticed many Primal Lifers use more toothpowder than they need. Dirty Mouth Toothpowder is 100% concentrated — a little goes a long way!


  1. Wet your toothbrush, then shake off excess water
  2. Dip the tip (half to two-thirds of the brush) in the toothpowder
  3. Brush like you normally would for 2 minutes
  4. Spit… Rinse… SMILE!

You can follow brushing with Boost Gum Serum to help improve and strengthen gum tissue.

Dirty Mouth Toothpowder is safe to swallow for kids and adults. We do recommend spitting your toothpowder out because clays pull out toxins from your teeth and gum tissue.

Sharing is Caring

Don’t worry about sharing toothpowder — and germs — with your family. Everyone can safely dip their toothbrush into the same jar. One of the benefits of clay is that it is antimicrobial.

However, if you do want to be extra cautious, here are some other ways to get the powder onto your brush:

  • Scoop a small amount of toothpowder into your palm (or small bowl) and dip your toothbrush into the powder. Proceed with regular directions.
  • Scoop a small amount of toothpowder directly onto your toothbrush. Proceed with regular directions.

YES! Brush with Dirty Mouth Toothpowder instead of your toothpaste!
The mini container (0.25 oz.) will last one month when used twice a day by one person. The 1 oz. jar (28 g) will last 3 to 4 months when used twice a day by one person.
Dirty Mouth Toothpowder contains the exact minerals your teeth need to stay strong. Your teeth lose minerals every day. Regular toothpaste does not contain any minerals. So while it may clean your teeth (with toxic ingredients), it will never strengthen them. In fact, most toothpastes contain glycerin, which is believed to leave a coating on your teeth. This coating will prevent any minerals you obtain from your diet from entering your teeth. With Dirty Mouth Toothpowder, you are brushing those minerals back into your teeth!
Weston Price has a ton of research on this topic. Many cultures use clay for its detoxifying and healing properties. There is also a book titled “Cure Tooth Decay” by Ramiel Nagel that has great information about natural solutions — and clay is one of them!
The powder is ultra-fine and non-abrasive. When it blends with the water on your damp brush, it becomes a sort of paste. It will not damage your enamel. In fact, because of the minerals, it will strengthen your enamel.
The time it takes depends on the condition of the teeth, diet and general health. Many notice a difference right away.
Yes, this can help. However, it depends on the severity of tooth decay.
Since the toothpowder does not contain harsh chemicals and leaves your natural and protective bacteria in place, it can help strengthen gum tissue. In fact, many customer testimonials mention how it improved their gum tissue.
Yes, but it can take a few weeks. You may notice an increase in sensitivity for the first week or two of using Dirty Mouth Toothpowder. This happens because commercial toothpaste contains glycerin, which puts a coating over the teeth to reduce sensitivity. However, this coating prevents minerals from going back into the teeth. Dirty Mouth Toothpowder will remove the glycerin coating, so your sensitivity could get slightly worse until the minerals in the toothpowder can replace those lost. Once this happens, the sensitivity should go away and your teeth will become stronger.
Yes, the ingredients are safe to swallow. Clay is used by many people who do an internal cleanse. Please note: We do recommend spitting after brushing, because the clay can pull toxins from your gum tissue and teeth.
Yes, Dirty Mouth Toothpowder is safe for kids. In fact, it was created for a 2-year-old.
No — fluoride can be toxic. The clays in the toothpowder contain the minerals the teeth need to stay strong and healthy.
Yes, this is free from all toxins and chemicals. SLS is not used in any of our products.
Yes, it is gluten free.
No. Myths about clay and the elements that make up a clay molecule are rampant. One myth deal with aluminum. Clay is a super stable compound. All of the elements that make up clay are bound together and act as a whole. Aluminum silicate is a crystal compound and cannot be utilized by the body. Aluminum in this form is completely inert. As long as the aluminum is bound in this form, it poses no health risk.
Yes, feel free to oil pull. But please understand that the point of oil pulling is to remove toxins. Oil pulling takes 20 minutes of swishing oil inside your mouth. Dirty Mouth Toothpowder also pulls toxins from your mouth, so this can replace oil pulling. Better yet, you brush your teeth for just 2 minutes!
Yes, the toothpowder is safe during pregnancy. We recommend avoiding the anise flavor, only because it could cause uterine contractions.
Yes, it is safe during breast feeding.
That is true… While clay can detox the body of toxins, the toothpowder will be used in the mouth and only pull toxins from the mouth. The small amount used will not be enough to cause any problems. We recommend spitting and not swallowing the toothpowder.
