In response to last week’s blog I received a comment from the maker of Tooth Chips – a natural & safe toothpaste alternative for cleaning teeth to which I will be responding to today as well.
Not only does this product come in a variety of flavor and ingredient combinations, it’s what it doesn’t have that excites me!
1. No Fluoride
2. No Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)
3. No Triclosan(anti-bacterial agent)
4. No Artificial Dyes
5. No Artificial sweeteners
6. No Glycerin
Some of the ingredients these products do have, include Xylitol which I have written extensively about in the past due to its antibacterial/saliva stimulating properties and Neem Bark.
Neem Bark has anti-inflammatory properties and comes from the Neem tree which is predominately found in Asia and India. Natives typically chew the ends into bristles and then gently clean the teeth with them.
I have a client who grew up in India who told me of these sticks many years ago and how effective they were. I should have done the research then!
While I am quite happy with my current Rotadent electric toothbrush, I would like to try a few Tooth Chips products as some of my clients and I are currently testing a number of natural oral health care alternatives to see which ones we like, provide results and are cost effective.
I will be calling to place my order within the next few days, so if anyone reading this information would like to try them, let me know and I will add to the order and if they prove to fit my criteria, look for them on the product shelf at Woodland Dental Hygiene in the near future.
I’d love your feedback. Here on my blog you’ll get commentluv. This is a plug-in that allows you to leave a link back to your own site when you leave feedback.
Until next time,
