I acknowledge this Remineralizing Toothpaste Recipe isn't pretty, but the jar sure is cute! This is a healthy alternative to conventional kinds of toothpaste. Not only will your teeth feel cleaner, but your gums will also boast a healthy light pink color after regular use.
When I ran out of my remineralizing toothpaste and temporarily went back to conventional toothpaste. My dental hygienist asked what I had changed because my gums weren't as healthy, and I had more plaque than normal. That says it all, doesn't it? Needless to say, this recipe is a keeper. If you'd like to learn more about remineralizing your teeth from the inside-out then you might benefit from our article titled, How To Remineralize Your Teeth.
If you're not into making a weekly batch of toothpaste then check out Redmond's Earthpaste. My oldest son and I love the Wintergreen flavor. The texture is very similar to our Remineralizing Toothpaste Recipe.
On the other hand, my youngest son despises all fruity and mint flavors. Parents, I have found one solution for this daily struggle; Theodent Kids Toothpaste in the Chocolate Chip flavor. It seriously tastes and smells like chocolate!
