Tom's Baking Soda Peppermint is the best toothpaste ever (although it has flouride).

;D <---- my squeaky clean teeth!

I've tried Tom's mango-flavored. It was funky but if you like those weird tastes, go for it, haha. It lasted forever.

Unlike the Kiss My Face aloe-mint tooth paste that only had about a quarter of the amt in the same size tube as Tom's.. Prob my favorite so far but not enough for the price.

Right now I'm using Jason's "power smile" whitening.. If you like minty fresh, get it!! Its like an explosion of minty tooth paste in your mouth  :o

And yes, I shop around. lol

I use Tom's also--I found it on sale super cheap at WalGreens (like $1.99 a tube or something crazy like that!), so I bought three different flavors--peppermint, wintergreen, and spearmint--and use a different one every day to mix it up a bit. Makes brushing my teeth more exciting  ::) I think the wintergreen is my fav.

You really don't need toothpaste. Just brush extremely well with tepid water. Electric toothbrushes may help with this.

Baking soda, peroxide, and peppermint oil work well, if you want that minty fresh feeling.

I just switched to Tom's. Takes a while to get used to the taste though. Now I realize how "sweet" regular toothpaste is. With Tom's my teeth feel clean and my breath fresh, not heavily "scented".

I go back and forth between Tom's, Kiss my Face, Desert Essence or Jason's.  Just depends on what the HFS has in stock.

I'm with mirrya on switching toothpaste brands, except for me, change "what my HFS has in stock" to "what my HFS has on sale." ;D I'm probably gonna stick with Tom's though because it's consistent price at Whole Foods is always the cheapest, and plus, I like it a lot. I used to use Jason's though and that was good too. I liked the tea tree and cinnamon flavor.

Agreed. After using natural toothpaste for awhile, I used Colgate at a house where that was the only paste and I hadn't brought my own. It was like brushing with ice cream and left an icky aftertaste. To think I used this stuff all the time for years! I used to really like the Crest Expressions (orange, lemon, vanilla mint, etc) and now I bet those would taste god-awful.

Tom's of Maine used to make a toothpaste called Fennel and Myrrh in a light purple tube.  It was SO good, but I don't think they make it anymore.  Has anyone seen this one around lately?

Yip, like brushing with ice cream!  ;D ;D ;D And it leaves a film like you've gargled with maple syrup. Ick!

my cousin uses this, and i think it's super delish.
for my toothpaste i mix one part cinnamon to four parts baking soda, and add a few drops of tea trea oil.  the cinnamon helps disquise the gross baking soda flavor.
i asked my dentist about it too, and he said toothpaste isn't even neccesary, as issaspiders mentioned

Hmm....another thing to add to my "I gotta try this" list. I know a hydrogen peroxide and water solution works well as a mouthwash.

My grandma doesn't even dilute it with water.  Just pours and a straight shot and gargles.
