Toothpaste Without Fluoride
Questions on Toothpaste without fluoride:
‘Without fluoride, your teeth are not protected,’ as my dentist says. Any advice on this and any kinds of toothpaste to buy in the U.K that are safe and contain fluoride?
Anonymous: I’ve been using non-fluoride toothpaste for a few years now and the dentist hasn’t twigged. He is in fact very happy with the state of my teeth! Sarakan is very good but a bit of an acquired taste. Kingfisher does a range of flavours that are good.
#TeamRosa: If you see a holistic dentist, you will find they have a very different view of the research on fluoride. I grew up without fluoride in my water and in my toothpaste. We also grew up without much in the way of sugar but we are lots of veggies and meat.
I have no fillings. I have been fluoride free since 2009 still no fillings or dental work. My husband, since changing his diet to low carb and removing fluoride, has not required any dental work whereas he had terrible problems before this. Hope that helps you to understand at least anecdotally that fluoride is not the be all and end all of healthy teeth.
#TeamRosa: Yep fluoride free here for 6 years. No dental problems and no fillings!
Anonymous: Fluoride doesn’t protect your teeth… it’s a poison…I grew up on rainwater and fluoride free toothpaste… I’m allergic to dairy and have cushings disease…But my teeth are no worse than anyone else’s…I haven’t had a filling since I was a child…I’m 40 now…my dentist has never said a thing..I’ve never told him I’m fluoride free…
#TeamRosa: This might make you not really want to have fluoride in your toothpaste.
Sodium fluoride is used in most toothpaste, mouthwashes, dental varnish, dental preparations, and nutritional supplements. This same form of fluoride is used as an insecticide and pesticide, as a preservative in glues, as a growth inhibitor for bacteria, fungi, and mold.
Sodium fluoride is also used in making steel and aluminum products. Added to molten metal, sodium fluoride creates a more uniform metal. Other industrial uses for sodium fluoride include glass frosting and wood preservatives.
Sodium fluoride is also used in the manufacture of chemical and biological weapons.
#TeamRosa: I grew up on a farm in tank water, no fluoride and I remember the dentist saying during childhood checkups ”see fluoride works!!”
I am now 37 living on a farm with tank water, no fluoride. Using no fluoride toothpaste for 6 yrs and no fillings as yet. I don’t eat much sugar so I think that helps. Dr. Axe has a great article on toothpaste and dental health, worth googling.
Anonymous: When I was in elementary school, we were required to swish with fluoride unless you had a note from your parents exempting you from doing it. My mom wrote a note because it always made me very nauseous.
Anonymous: My holistic dentist offers fluoride free cleanings. Lots of info online about how fluoride is a poison. We like Dr. Bronner toothpaste and MiEssence toothpaste.
