Stop Brushing with Toxins and Chemicals! Now there’s a new way to care for your teeth and gums - the Good-Gums way. Made with a blend of all-natural herbs, Good-Gums, a toothpaste replacement, provides critical minerals essential for building strong tooth enamel and healthy gums, but never leaves behind a film like toothpaste.
Good-Gums soothes sore gums, cleans teeth with low abrasiveness, and leads to stronger tooth enamel. It also helps to counter acidity in the mouth while neutralizing the bacteria that promote plaque growth and cause odor.

It's simple! Use Good-Gums alone, not with any toothpaste, as the glycerin in the paste coats the teeth and gums with a film that blocks the action of Good-Gums. Tap into your palm enough powder to just cover a dime. Use a moistened (not wet) toothbrush to spread the powder along the gum line, where it will dissolve into a liquid. Then you’re ready to brush. Brush as normal, as directed by your dentist. Hold the liquid in your mouth for a few seconds, then spit out. Do not rinse.
If you’re using an electric toothbrush (e.g., Sonicare, et al.), angle the brush at 45-degrees so that the bristles just nestle into the gum line and gently let the vibrating bristles loosen any plaque. If you’re using a manual toothbrush, angle the bristles at 45-degrees and gently move the toothbrush’s head in tiny circles so that the tips of the bristles just wiggle at the gum line, and not slide left-and-right or up-and-down.
Take your time when you’re trying to overcome gum problems. For a manual toothbrush, each tooth should get about 15 to 20 gentle wiggles; for an electric toothbrush, each tooth should get a couple seconds of gentle vibration, even if that means running the brush for an extra cycle. Do not scrub with hard pressure, as that could irritate the gums. Just let the vibrating bristles lightly nestle under the gumline with the dissolved Good-Gums, and let the wiggles or vibrations disrupt the biofilm of plaque.
After brushing the gum line, brush the enamel surfaces. Brushing in this way will clean the teeth and apply Good-Gums to the gum line.
1. Start with the gumline, then the teeth.
2. Do not rinse; Good-Gums is safe to ingest.

Beware these 5 toxic ingredients in your toothpaste
If you’re taking good care of your teeth you’re brushing them at least twice a day. But how often do you give any thought to the ingredients in your toothpaste?
If you’re like most folks it’s not often, if ever. But the truth is most commercial brands of toothpaste have at least a few questionable… and entirely unnecessary… ingredients in them. Ingredients that could be harming your health.
Following are five common toothpaste ingredients that are best to avoid.
1. Diethanolamine (DEA):
If your toothpaste foams it probably contains DEA. DEA is used in many foaming products, including personal care items. When it’s mixed with some other common ingredients DEA becomes NDEA, which has been linked to a higher risk of stomach, esophageal, liver and bladder cancers. NDEA is easily absorbed through skin tissue such as through your gums and tongue. The Environmental Working Group classifies DEA as highly hazardous in its Skin Deep database, citing concerns with the ingredient’s connections to cancer, allergies and organ toxicity.
This toothpaste additive has been controversial from the beginning. First of all fluoride is simply unnecessary because there are better ways to protect your teeth from tooth decay. But far worse is the fact that when fluoride is swallowed it can build up in your tissues and has been linked to a weakened immune system, cancer, thyroid problems, dementia, and more. And ironically fluoride can even cause damage to tooth enamel, a condition known as dental fluorosis.
3. Propylene glycol:
You’d probably laugh if we suggested you start brushing your teeth with antifreeze or paint instead of toothpaste. But an industrial version of a common toothpaste ingredient, propylene glycol, is a major component of both of them. There’s frighteningly little research on the safety of propylene glycol in personal hygiene products and the research that does exist is very inconclusive. Most experts believe that the amounts we’re being exposed to in products such as our toothpaste is likely not damaging. But the truth is we don’t know for sure. What we do know, however, is that in sufficient amounts propylene glycol can cause lung irritation and it can contribute to organ toxicity.
4. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS):
SLS is a foaming agent that’s included in many commercial toothpastes to help scrub debris off of your teeth. The trouble is SLS could harm your teeth, even weakening them to the point they can absorb oil and water soluble substances. Even worse, thanks to the way SLS is processed it’s likely to be contaminated with other chemicals that could raise your risk for cancer.
Triclosan is an antibacterial, which may sound like something you’d like to have in your toothpaste when you first hear it. But don’t be fooled. The truth is triclosan is at least partly responsible for the antibiotic resistance that’s led to the rise of dangerous superbugs that most antibiotics can no longer kill. And triclosan is an endocrine disruptor that’s been linked to cancer and rapid cancer progression. The pesticide has even been found to mess with the process by which your muscles, including your heart, receive signals from your brain.
These questionable ingredients range from troubling to treacherous, but what they all have in common is there all unnecessary. You can find commercial toothpastes on the market that don’t contain these potential hazards such as some of Nature’s Gate, Tom’s of Maine and Jason products.
Or better yet, make your own toothpaste. Mix one teaspoon of baking soda, one drop of pure essential peppermint oil, and just enough water (think drops, not teaspoons) to
