Which Toothpaste Do I Recommend?

Actually I don’t recommend toothpaste for most of my patients. If a patient has dry mouth from a disease or medicine I will prescribe a fluoride tooth paste. Dry Mouth has devastating effects on the teeth because the saliva has a protective action on the teeth.
For most patients, that do not have an issue with cavities, I just recommend a dry soft bristle brush. Brush only your teeth gently with a dry bristle brush. You can get more plaque removed quickly with a dry tooth brush. Toothpaste typically contains abrasives which are harsh on the teeth and cause excessive wear. Some toothpaste contain harmful chemicals. Even some “organic” toothpaste contain tea tree oil which should not be used internally because of tea tree oils harmful effect on your thyroid.

That’s the whole tooth and nothing but the tooth.
