Tooth powder is a blend of natural ingredients designed to clean your teeth. This tooth powder does not contain any harmful or controversial ingredients such as foaming agents, whitening agents, glycerin, or fluoride.
Instead the tooth powder uses baking soda as the gentle abrasive, meaning it does the actual cleaning of your teeth and helps restore your teeth’s natural color. Since foam does not equal clean, but scrubbing equals clean, this is important. Bentonite clay helps re-mineralize the tooth surface and restore the pH balance in your mouth. The salt helps prevent bacteria growth.
The tooth powder is flavored with both spearmint and peppermint essential oils.The essential oils leave your mouth feeling minty and clean.
Sizes (choose from drop-down menu):
- Regular: 1/2 oz tooth powder in container
- Refill: 2 oz tooth powder in plastic bag
- Bulk Refill: 1 lb tooth powder in a plastic bag
Directions: First wet the toothbrush, then sprinkle the tooth powder either directly onto the toothbrush or directly onto your tongue. Brush your teeth well then rinse and spit.
We do recommend that the tooth powder be spit out, because we have not medically evaluated it for swallowing, but all of the ingredients are food quality so you can make your own decision on whether it is safe for young children.
Custom Essential Oils: We try to reach the right balance with the amount of essential oils but recognize that because of people's varying tastes some will find it too minty while some will find it not minty enough. We have made custom flavored tooth powder (bulk refill size only) for people either increasing, decreasing, or changing the essential oils. Please contact us if you'd like more information.
Dentist Reaction: Our dentist loves our tooth powder. Our entire family has been using it for years and he has no complaints. We've only had one cavity in the past 5+ years and that was on one child who had a molar in the back with a very deep indentation.
Container: We have experimented with a lot of containers over the years. This is the best we have found for dispensing the tooth powder directly onto tooth brushes. Avoid getting water into the tooth powder container and never dip a wet toothbrush into the tooth powder as it may introduce bacteria. You can purchase extra empty containers in the drop-down menu.
Directions on Filling Containers: Do not fill your container too much. The "fuller" the container, the more likely you are to spill it as you dispense it. I only fill the children's containers half way, which makes them more accurate in dispensing the powder onto their toothbrush or tongue. Learn more about how to refill your tooth powder.
