Should You Try Making Your Own Toothpaste?


Posted on 7/20/2018 by Dr. Roger Chang
Should You Try Making Your Own Toothpaste?Toothpaste is an important tool in your oral care regimen, and with so many options available, it can be hard to choose one. Most toothpastes are healthy and work to improve your teeth and gums, but some people have turned to homemade options, instead.

While you certainly don't have to make your own toothpaste, there are some benefits that may interest you.

Control the Ingredients


One of the greatest concerns that many people have about store bought toothpaste is the chemical ingredients. Toothpaste often contains glycerin, sodium laurel sulfate, saccharin, and other ingredients.

Some of these are foaming agents, which some people believe could interfere with the basic functions of the taste buds. When you make your own toothpaste, you'll know exactly what is included and the anticipated effects.

Simple to Make


If you run out of toothpaste, you don't have to get in your car and head out to the store. Toothpaste is easy to make. You can flavor it to suit your own unique tastes using essential oils.

The most popular option is peppermint, which has antibacterial and antioxidant properties, but you can use cinnamon, spearmint, clove, or myrrh oils, as well.

Save Money


While toothpaste probably isn't your biggest expense, making your own could save you a little money. You'll simply use the baking soda, essential oil, water, baking soda, and sea salt that you already have at home.

Over the course of a few years, you may accumulate a significant savings.
Toothpaste is a very important aspect to your oral health, but it isn't the only concern you need to have in keeping your teeth healthy.

Regular visits to the dentist are a necessity, at least once every six months. Call us today to set up your next appointment and let us help you find the toothpaste that will work best for your dental needs.
