Fluoride free toothpaste
Fluoride toothpaste has its place in prevention of tooth decay and is a staple in many households.
Fluoridated water and sodium fluoride in toothpaste can have its drawbacks, however, too much fluoride can cause fluorosis in the tooth enamel which shows as white spots that cannot be removed.
If you want a natural whitening toothpaste, you would look for ingredients such as sodium bicarbonate, this has an abrasive action and helps to remove surface staining, however, you would want to avoid this if you have sensitive teeth.
If you have bad breath, you might want a toothpaste flavoured with peppermint oil that contains tea tree to keep your breath fresh.
Natural toothpaste - sls free
Sodium lauryl sulfate is a degreasing and cleaning agent. It is cheap and is put into many toothpaste brands as the foaming agent. It can cause irritation and upset to gums and can cause mouth ulcers. It is a chemical that doesn't need to be in a toothpaste and other foaming agents that are natural are preferable.
Bamboo toothbrushWe have thought about how to aid parents with the brushing of their children's teeth and soft toothbrushes along with naturally flavoured toothpaste are top of that list.
The bamboo toothbrushes for children in our Pearl Bar range have nice soft bristles, gentle for teeth and gums. Combine that with a natural SLS free toothpaste and your child will be happy to let you lead them in their dental care.
For adults, we have the same bamboo toothbrushes with soft bristles, medium or firm bristles. Whichever you choose is an entirely personal choice.
The bamboo handle is pleasant to hold, it's an eco-friendly toothbrush that is compostable and the natural bamboo toothbrush handle is resistant to bacterial growth.
Pearl Bar biodegradable toothbrushes have nylon bristles that are charcoal infused.
How often should you change your toothbrush?
This is a question that dentists hear regularly and the answer is every 3 months or sooner if the bristles start to splay. This is where a bamboo toothbrush is a must have. A family of 4 would use 16 toothbrushes a year between them and if you multiply that by all of the families living in the UK, imagine the number of plastic brushes that are being taken to the dumps.
Keep our landfills free from unnecessary waste by composting your toothbrush in your compost heap. Let your children use their handles for plant markers in the garden or for creative arts and craft projects.
