Why make the switch from your regular toothpaste?

THREE REASONS:

1. Tooth Soap® is NON-Abrasive. This is important to understand because we brush our teeth approximately 57,000 times in our life and our teeth over time, show the wear. 

But there is more to the story spoken of frequently in the mainstream dental world, but not talked about so much to the general public. It’s about the serious problem of abrasion from commercial toothpaste. Dr. Peter E. Dawson, a world-renowned dentist who wrote the book, “Functional Occlusion: From TMJ to Smile Design” in 2007 stated, “What we have been calling ABFRACTION lesions are really the result of toothpaste abuse”. (3)

If a dental patient has abfraction lesions, they may require gum surgery to replace the lost gum tissue. This means that the oral care product that is supposed to care for teeth is actually harming them long term, potentially causing the need for surgical intervention down the road. 

Whenever we brush our teeth, we are either cleaning them gently or we are wearing the enamel down just a bit. If a person brushes three times a day that is a lot of opportunity to wear down enamel. This is why we take abrasion seriously.

2. Tooth Soap® super cleans teeth better than any sticky paste, powder or oily cleanser. We are focused on getting your teeth sparkling clean. Tooth Soap® CLEANS teeth, leaving zero residue behind. 

Back in 1997, Dr. Gerard F. Judd (a professor and cancer and fluoride researcher of 40 years) discovered a natural dental protocol to keep healthy teeth and gums for life. This natural plan available to everyone on the planet started with brushing with SOAP. But Dr. Judd wasn’t the first to use or recommend soap for teeth. Soap has been used for brushing for over 165 years. The toothpaste tube was introduced in the 1890’s and contained soap. But the soap was removed in 1946 and never returned. From Colgate’s website: “Until after 1945, toothpastes contained soap. After that time, soap was replaced by other ingredients to make the paste into a smooth paste or emulsion – such as sodium lauryl sulphate, a common ingredient in present-day toothpaste.”

We say NO to SLS at Tooth Soap®. We are about pure vegetable soap formulations created from organic extra virgin olive oil, organic coconut oil, essential oils, pure rock and bamboo salts and coral calcium.

Pure soap is still the best thing to use on teeth and gums and that’s why we’ve spent over 15 years perfecting the art of Tooth Soap® formulations. Enhanced with therapeutic, steam-distilled essential oils known for their powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties, we’ve now added Manuka honey from New Zealand because studies show Manuka honey reduces plaque similar to that of chlorhexidine (a disinfectant and antiseptic that is used for skin disinfection before surgery and to sterilize surgical instruments). (1)

3. Tooth Soap® zaps plaque. Plaque is a serious issue. The bacteria portion alone in plaque can contain more than 108 bacteria.

There may be 200-400 different species of micro-organisms which include:

  • Bacteria
  • Mycoplasm
  • Protozoa
  • Virus

Oral care is more than just whitening your teeth and preventing cavities. Plaque removal needs to be taken seriously. Just like washing your hands with soap after using the restroom is important to keep from spreading diseases, brushing with soap to clean off food debris, plaque and other contaminants from the teeth and gums is necessary to maintain overall body health.

The focus of Tooth Soap® is deep cleaning of the teeth and gums because periodontal disease is running rampant in 2018 and is correlated with life-threatening diseases such as cancer, including lung and colorectal cancer. (2).

Knowing this, it’s easy to understand the importance of brushing with the proper dentifrice.

Again, plaque in your mouth can contain more than 108 different types of bacteria and 200-400 different species of micro-organisms! Periodontal disease (plaque under the gum line causing bleeding and eventually leading to bone and tooth loss) has been correlated with heart disease, colon cancer, diabetes, asthma and more. 

THE GOOD NEWS: Brushing with Tooth Soap® and Marvelous Tooth Care™ completely disrupts plaque and softens tartar (hardened plaque) without leaving any residue behind.

Super clean teeth and gums mean better health all around!

Brushing teeth is the number one recommended way to avoid periodontal issues that lead to other life threatening illnesses.

Why Use Tooth Soap® instead of what you normally use?

Bacteria and viruses are destroyed by small amounts of soap in water. That is why brushing with pure Tooth Soap® is helpful with a gentle, natural, disinfecting action. Tooth Soap® super cleans your teeth and gums!

MYTH: Soap is not good to use on teeth and gums because it destroys all the bad bacteria as well as the GOOD.

This is a MYTH and false teaching! The mouth cannot be made STERILE. It is impossible! As soon as anything is washed out of the mouth there are some critters left behind and they multiply quickly and that is why your mouth will taste fresh right after brushing but even ten minutes later the bacteria are back and your mouth is not so fresh anymore.

Plaque, a sticky substance that is referred to as ‘biofilm’ in the dental world is a bacterial playground. Tartar (formed 24 hours after plaque is not removed), a poorly formed crystal stuck to the bottom of the enamel, is prevented and eventually removed by brushing with pure soap. Plaque turns into hard tartar in much less than 24 hours in some people, so brushing is vital to remove it completely. Tooth Soap® is a plaque eraser and tartar blaster! If you have stubborn, barnacle plaque, Tooth Soap® is for you!

According to chemist Dr. Gerard F. Judd, taking calcium and phosphate in the diet results in reenamelization of the teeth, but only when they are clean. Tooth Soap® does a perfect job of cleaning the tooth surface, leaving no residue behind. Clean enamel thickens and becomes less sensitive. Adenosine diphosphatase furnishes phosphate to teeth when they are clean.

Irina Babitsky Yes! No new cavities ever since I switched to Tooth Soap® 10 years ago. It’s awesome!

“I first tried Tooth Soap®@ about 15 months ago, AND I LOVE IT! It is the best dental cleaner. I have had lots of problems with my gums, and I seem to accumulate plaque very easily. After about a week of using Tooth Soap®@, the plaque began to soften, and I was able to work on getting more of it off my teeth. Any product that allows me to take better home care of my teeth is absolutely #1 with me. I’ve only used the shreds, and Plain Jane is my favorite, but I look forward to trying more of the product line. Thank you so much!!!” ~ Leigh Ann P., Denver CO
