Why Tooth Powder?
The main ingredient in this tooth powder is Bentonite Clay. Not only does it bind to and draw out heavy metals and toxins (a huge plus for the mouth!), but it is alkaline and full of minerals. It can be taken internally to help with toxin removal so it is safe for use in the mouth and it contains calcium, magnesium and silica which are nourishing for the teeth!
This tooth powder will last indefinitely on the counter since there are no liquid ingredients and all of the ingredients naturally discourage bacterial growth. It is also extremely gentle and has a milder taste for kids
Calcium Powder provides extra calcium to provide minerals and whiten.
Cinnamon is also antibacterial, tastes great and helps discourage bacterial growth in the mouth.
Baking Soda is alkaline and contains minerals which also helps remove stains.
Xylitol inhibits the growth of the bacteria that cause cavities. It does this because these bacteria (Streptococcus mutants) cannot utilize xylitol to grow. Over time, the quality of the bacteria in the mouth changes and fewer and fewer decay-causing bacteria survive on tooth surfaces.
Peppermint Essential Oil tastes great and is soothing to the gums.
