Perfect natural alternative.
on 3 February 2014
This paste is perfect if you find that foaming toothpastes make you gag, or if the strong mint flavour in conventional toothpastes burns your mouth. (Like me!) The flavour is pleasant and minty without that horrid burning.
Within a week of using this my seriously bleedy gums have healed and now there is no more blood. I use mine with an electric toothbrush, and prefer to spread the paste onto my teeth with a clean finger first, of course this isn't necessary. I also noticed that a large abscess that I've had for months now has gone down. -Of course I do not recommend this as a treatment, always go to a dentist for oral problems.
As far as the actual cleaning properties go, I find this works just as well as a normal toothpaste, and the lack of foam allows you to feel around with your tongue for spots you may have missed, therefore improving your brushing technique.
One thing I will say though, is that the packaging states that there may be traces of lead in the paste and for this reason I choose to spit it out after brushing. This lead is naturally occurring in the clay and as far as I'm concerned possible traces of lead are less dangerous than the large amounts of fluoride purposely put into normal toothpastes. However it is important for everyone to make their own informed choices about the products they use.
