Fluoride-Free Toothpaste FAQs
What Is the Difference Between Fluoride and Fluoride-Free Toothpaste?
Fluoride is a mineral found in rocks, soil, air and more. It's a common ingredient in toothpaste used for preventing tooth decay and strengthening the enamel. However, consumers have started making the switch to natural toothpaste due to concerns over fluoride. To help you maintain healthy teeth and gums, fluoride-free toothpaste will, instead, use botanical-based ingredients. Combined with the motion of your toothbrush bristles, botanicals incorporated in our toothpastes will help reduce plaque and help fight cavity-forming sugar acids from your teeth and freshen your breath. For the best results, you should always brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily.
What Are the Benefits of Fluoride-Free Toothpaste?
If you’re allergic to fluoride or have concerns about it, a fluoride-free toothpaste powered by botanicals can be a great option to keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean. Ingredients like nurturing aloe, chamomile, sage, calendula, arnica and myrrh help soothe gums while baking soda, sea salt, zinc citrate and antioxidant-rich white tea help fight build up and plaque. Plus, natural flavors like peppermint, ginger, wintergreen, cinnamint and fennel leave your breath deliciously fresh.
Gel vs. Toothpaste: How to Choose a Fluoride-Free Toothpaste for Kids
Tooth gels are typically made with silica, so they have a smoother, glassier texture and are less abrasive than conventional toothpastes. Parents often choose gel over toothpaste for kids since gel tends to be gentler on tooth enamel. Developed for kids aged six months to six years, Desert Essence's oral gels are safe to swallow, so you won't have to fret over your little ones ingesting worrisome ingredients. Available in delicious flavors such as Tutti Frutti and Green Apple Watermelon, they safely remove plaque buildup while protecting developing teeth.
What Are the Key Botanicals That You Can Expect to Find in Desert Essence’s Toothpastes?
In our neem toothpaste, perilla seed and neem — the latter long referred to as the Ayurvedic “toothbrush” — help neutralize odor-causing bacteria. On the other hand, our tea tree oil toothpaste helps fight cavity-forming sugar acids. Meanwhile, our coconut oil toothpaste is inspired by the ancient Ayurvedic practice of oil pulling and helps draw out impurities in your mouth while leaving your breath extra fresh.
