It is not necessary to protect your teeth from tooth decay with fluoride toothpaste. A fluoride-free toothpaste protects just as well, provided it is a high-quality toothpaste from the natural cosmetics sector.
A high-quality fluoride-free toothpaste is also an ideal alternative for those who want to avoid the unnecessary and, above all, harmful chemicals of a fluoride toothpaste.
If you can’t find such a fluoride-free toothpaste in your health food shop or drugstore, you can easily make your own, e.g., from coconut oil.
In addition to your daily dental care, we recommend an oil rinse or so-called oil pulling. Oil pulling is an uncomplicated method for daily detoxification. Oil pulling has an extremely positive effect on the health of your teeth and mouth.
If you have decided to use fluoride toothpaste, be sure to pay attention to its ingredients. Some toothpastes also contain calcium carbonate. With this combination, it can happen that the two substances combine to form a complex. The effect of fluoride is largely lost in this process.
The results of the respective studies are therefore only of limited significance. Scientists also agree that in children under six years of age, one has to weigh the risk of fluorosis against caries prevention.
