We started looking for some nice gentler toothpastes a couple of months ago when we noticed that our gums were getting irritated from cheap tooth brushes and pastes. Previously we had been using Colgate or Aquafresh.

We tried the brand "Squigle" after hearing good things about it being low on the irritation scale, but it doesn't have mint, and I like the fresh feeling you get from the mint.  This toothpaste, by Tom's of Maine, in a lovely spearmint flavor is brilliant.  It's really, really gentle on my teeth and gums, and it has helped to calm and cure inflammation caused by acid attack on the teeth and gums and other minor mouth issues, including canker sores and wisdom teeth bites.

This toothpaste tastes wonderful.  The taste is very natural-tasting... your teeth feel very clean after using it, so it seems to do a good job in the scrubbing department.  It also keeps your moth feeling fresh for a very long time after using.  Now that I have been using it regularly for about a month, I feel like the overall health of my mouth has improved greatly.  I will definitely be buying this toothpaste again (probably in bulk next time) and recommending it to all I know.

  • Best toothpaste I've ever used!

    Some people do not care about the fluoride content in their toothpaste, but I am not one of these people. I used to find myself getting a headache when I brushed my teeth, but after switching to Tom's Fluoride Free toothpaste, I haven't had that problem again. Read more

    I recently started switching to more natural andor organic products. I have always had pretty bad teeth. Then I heard some things about fluoride actually being not good for your teeth, so I decided to switch to a natural toothpaste. Read more
