    The name of that product makes me think of brushing my teeth with mud/dirt. Not in a bad way. Adding to my Amazon cart...
    It kinda feels/tastes that way too. I have the wintergreen "flavour".

      Never had this problem even after giving up gluten. Maybe I'm less intolerant though...not that I'll be going back to eating wheat bread even if this is the case because giving up gluten has helped me with joint pain and urinary problems. Or maybe I just don't get this particular symptom from gluten?
      Perhaps this should be incentive for me to try a homemade baking soda toothpaste like I mentioned.

        A toothbrush with Crest Pro Health toothpaste on it.

        I didn't think about it until this thread. I guess it's part of my 20%.

        Shit, does it break my fast?

          Not a bad suggestion -- I'll have to give that a try!

            I brush my teeth with baking soda, straight from the jar.
            I'm the only one in my family without teeth problems.

              This:

              The brushing blend dropped onto a toothbrush, sometimes with coconut oil and baking soda added. I love it.

                  Just kidding. Tom's fluoride-free. But I hate brushing, one more reason I like VLC.

                    Ecodent tooth powder. Love it. Used to use Tom's of Maine until they were bought out and started putting SLS in it. SLS irritates my gums. Lesson learned don't brush with something made to degrease engines.

                        I make my own toothpaste out of baking soda, xylitol, hydrogen peroxide, and cinnamon mixed with with coconut oil into a paste. It's awesome. My teeth have never felt cleaner or looked whiter. Cheap as hell, too.

                          Baking soda. Just switched about 2 weeks ago. Discoloration that had only been removable after a cleaning at the dentist is totally gone. I was shocked. The salty taste sucks. But I'm too lazy to make some sort of mix.

                          On a related note, by dentist actually told me to not use toothpaste - that it was actually too abrasive. He said to just use a toothbrush and use very light pressure to "dislodge and disrupt" the bacteria.

                            This has nothing to do with teeth, but my sink - same thing happened.

                            My house was built in 1961 and there were quite a few stains in my ugly
                            ass BEIGE sink that I could NEVER get out.

                            Not with bleach, not with comet, not with pine sol, not with ANYTHING.

                            I made a paste of baking soda and vinegar, and hot damn, not only did ALL
                            the stains come out, but cripes on a cracker, the sink has NEVER looked cleaner.

                            Probably cleaner than when the fools chose that nasty ass color.

                            Baking soda for the win!

                            Has anyone noticed, whilst using the baking soda on their teeth, that it makes their
                            teeth sensitive at all?

                            I can't use whitening toothpaste or those strips or anything, but I'll bite the salty
                            bullet and use some baking soda along with my regular toothpaste if it whitens
                            and doesn't cause any sensitivity.... like right now... for an HOUR.

                            Okay, not really.

                              straight baking soda did irritate my gums. But I used to mix my own paste using coconut oil, baking soda, salt, xylitol and that was fine, just messy.

                                I toss my teeth in a glass and add water and a fizzy tab. Car accidents suck.
