Frequently Asked Questions
How do I use toothpaste tablets?
Pop a tablet in your mouth, chew to a fine paste, brush with a slightly damp brush. Repeat twice a day like you would with regular toothpaste.
What are the tablets made of?
All of our tablets are American made with all natural ingredients. No fillers. No harsh chemicals or artificial ingredients. Check out our ingredient page at the bottom of the home page for more information.
Why Aluminum bottles?
Many waste facilities that recycle glass are hard to come by than those for aluminum cans. Many local authorities refuse to collect glass alongside other rubbish or recycling, citing difficulties in repurposing glass if the different colors mix in transit. So much glass waste is never recycled and ends up in landfills.
Aluminum is one of the most easily recycled materials, with over 35 million cans recycled each week. Recycling an aluminum bottle uses 90% less energy than recycling a glass bottle.
How many tablets come in a bottle?
There are 60 tablets in a bottle and also in our refill bags. That is good for a month of brushing 2 times a day.
What is Nano Hydroxyapatite?
The benefitsIt stimulates bone growth, remineralization, and biocompatibility. It also helps repair damaged teeth caused by cavities. It also bonds to plaque and bacteria while brushing your teeth.Teeth are Whiter, Translucent, and GlossierReduced Tooth SensitivityFights soft tissue infectionsRemineralizes and repairs teethBonds bones
Compared to fluoride?
Fluoride is toxic. It remineralizes teeth with a chemical reaction. Nano-hydroxyapatite remineralizes enamel naturally.
Is Nano-Hydroxyapatite safe?
It's a naturally occurring organic material within our bodies means it is biocompatible and safer than most other dental products on the market. Since it's non-toxic and biocompatible it can be ingested, making it safer over other dental products such as fluoride for adults and children.
Bamboo Flossing Toothbrush
Is the bamboo toothbrush eco-friendly?
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing renewable resources and is also biodegradable, it will degrade naturally. So it won't add more nasty plastic waste to our planet. Bamboo is also antibacterial, so it's the perfect material to use in toothbrushes.
How does it floss?
Our toothbrush bristles are thinly tapered, BPA free and get below the gum line that gently flosses while you brush.
You just brush as you normally do twice a day. Combined with regular flossing, it will keep you teeth and gums healthy. You should always replace your toothbrush every 2-3 months.
What do you do when you are done with your toothbrush?
The handle is completely biodegradable and will degrade within 6 months when you recycle.
The nylon BPA free bristles are the part you will need to remove before recycling. Just make sure to pull the bristles out and throw away before recycling your toothbrush handle.
Again, this is an easy swap from plastic to bamboo that is good for you, the planet and a step in the right direction for a healthy natural dental routine.
Xylitol and dog safety
Why is Xylitol harmful to dogs and not humans?
The level of blood sugar in our bodies are controlled by the release of insulin from the pancreas. In humans, Xylitol does not stimulate the release of insulin from the pancreas. But in dogs, it quickly goes into their bloodstream that could result in a high level release of insulin. That large release of insulin could result in a decrease in the level of blood sugar called hypoglycemia. You need to treat it quickly or hypoglycemia can become very serious problem.
What to do if you ever think your dog may have eaten Xylitol?
Immediately take your dog to your trusted family vet or an emergency vet clinic. Lots of times hypoglycemia and other side effects may not appear until up to 24 hours later. Depending on how much was ingested or the health condition of your dog, the vet may decide your dog may need to be hospitalized or be monitored for their safety.
Why we use Maltitol instead of Xylitol?
Maltitol is also sugar alcohol but it's not harmful to dogs and has many dental benefits. It's just as sweet at sugar, but contains fewer calories and has a lower glycemic index. Another reason we use in our tablets is that maltitol may be helpful in reducing gingivitis and bacterial growth. It also helps to prevent dental plaque and cavities, unlike regular sugar.
