I thought Colgate Total was different as it contained Triclosan. But i think other toothpastes have this too.

Big difference.. Sensodyne Repair and Protect has a bioglass compound called Novamin that actually bonds with the enamel and gives it an extra coating that fortifies teeth enamel. It is the only compound and toothpaste that actually repairs or fortified your enamel.

I know a new compound called Biomin has come out which is a superior version of Novamin, but it is only available in the UK for now.

Edit: correction: Bioglass is not the only compound that repairs your enamel. But it is the best or among the best there is. Also available over the counter so you don't need some expensive prescription toothpaste.

Novamin (a type of bioglass) was invented by a scientist and Sensodyne bought out his research, so to my knowledge Sensodyne Repair and Protect (non US version) is the only off the shelf toothpaste that has Novamin.

For some reason, the version in the US does not have Novamin. If you want to buy the Novamin version in the US, buy it from Amazon here:

It takes a few weeks to ship from the UK. But the price is reasonable: $6.60 and free shipping.

u/merinosweater · 197 pointsr/bestof

edit - Looks like there's been some confusion. Americans, you can buy some from NK Supplies - direct from UK on Amazon or direct-pharmacy (Item Location: Birmingham, United Kingdom) on eBay.

Scroll down on the Amazon link to find the UK vendor for $7.87 + free shipping. Also, please look into using to donate to a charity of your choice! Slightly more expensive Amazon link if you don't want to scroll down.

To use - Apply a very thin layer of the toothpaste on your toothbrush. Slightly wet with water. Brush your teeth. Using your tongue and mouth suction, push the toothpaste between each tooth for 3-5 minutes. Do not swallow the toothpaste. Spit it out as best as you can. Do not rinse out with water. Avoid eating and drinking for 30 minutes.

u/thetiffany · 72 pointsr/AskWomen

I buy these little pods that turn into hand towels when wet. They're the best for the outdoors or anywhere where you need a towel to wipe your hands or clean something.

I also buy Sensodyne with novamin which you can only buy from Europe. Novamin isn't allowed in the US without paying for a $pecial procedure from your dentist so this is one of the best over-the-counter ways to treat/repair sensitive teeth.

u/Orcus424 · 54 pointsr/Showerthoughts
u/Conducteur · 33 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

Here in the Netherlands they are available in supermarkets. They have advertisments on TV promoting it (so it's not seen as a medical product at all, for which it's illegal to advertise here).

I don't know if they are particularly popular, but they are somewhat well known. I've heard two people say it helped and nobody that it didn't, but that's more anecdotal evidence (after all, it's a sample of 2 and there are people who think homeopathics work so you can't even trust those 2).

Edit: this toothpaste with Novamin can be bought in the US on Amazon (just make sure to pick a seller that ships from the EU).

u/n0m_de_plum · 30 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Yeah, you're right. No one's overly and annoying obsessed with [bacon] ( They don't make themselves look silly with their expressions of their love of [bacon] ( They don't spend too much money on some [food trend] (

Or used bacon in impractical ways.

And there are [no] ( [products] ( that don't need to be bacon themed. Nope. None at all. Not one.

So clearly it is just that us women to waaaay too far with our love of the PSL...because no real man would like such a girly drink, and there's nothing sexist about those facts!

I went last year for the first time since about 2002. To put it lightly, I was scared.

It turns out that my fear of dentists for the previous 16 years was a solid and effective motivator for me to take very good care of my teeth. No cavities. I waited until AFTER the cleaning to tell them how long it had been, and they said it looked like I had been getting cleanings every 6 months. Now, whenever I go in every 6 months, they tell me I consistently have the cleanest teeth of any of their clients (maybe they are lying to make me feel good).

My regimen for the last 17 years:

u/Sunsparc · 14 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

I have to order my Sensodyne from the UK for this very reason. I have weak enamel and regular Sensodyne wasn't doing anything. Someone in another reddit post mentioned you can order it from Amazon UK so I did.

It's like $6 a tube, but worth it.

EDIT: Here's the link. It's not Amazon.UK but it ships from the UK for $6.60 free shipping.

u/robotparker · 13 pointsr/bestof

just a heads up: the toothpaste at the other end of your Amazon link doesn't contain NovaMin, but this one does.

All these comments and not one person linked the damn item.

u/cerwytha · 11 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

I have white spots on my front teeth from braces as well, and finally got an answer from the last dentist I saw that they're demineralized spots, and if they don't develop further then they can remineralize but unless they do they'll be more likely to develop cavities.

I bought a remineralizing paste from my dentist with fluoride and hydroxy apatite in it, which helps remineralize the spots, and have been using it as a spot treatment. After some research into it I also bought a remineralization toothpaste off of Amazon, it's from Japan because it's not sold in the US but it's got the same effect as the paste. I've been using this for a few weeks now, and the white spots on my teeth have gotten a lot less noticeable.

You might still have issues with your teeth and this might not totally get rid of the spots, but I would highly recommend trying the toothpaste for a few months and seeing if that helps before looking at veneers. I feel like remineralization is not something that dentists in the US tend to look at other than fluoride, which isn't as effective as hydroxy apatite, but it's worth looking into.

You can find them online or at any health food store. E.g. Tom's of Maine, Doterra.

Uncle Harry's Fluoride Free Toothpaste - Peppermint (3 oz glass jar)

I would say it took about 6 uses before I got used to this toothpaste. Let me tell you - no one will regret this switch. Providing the right environment for your mouth allows you mouth to heal. Yes heal. Have a cavity? Providing the right environment will allow your teeth to regenerate, naturally. Sounds outlandish but I can say I will never go back.

u/OMADer2762 · 7 pointsr/omad

Your bad breath could have a few causes.

Dry mouth from slight dehydration or from ketones because you're dipping into ketosis between meals. Drink more water firstly and I think gum or sugar free mints are fine - sometimes we over think things and get lost in the details.

I highly recommend a tongue scraper for general oral hygiene and maybe give this mouthwash
and toothpaste a try. Something like this may be helpful for dry mouth that comes along with fasting/ketone breath.

u/sboomer · 6 pointsr/Dentistry

Crest Whitening Strips

Apply it 1x or 2x a week to make it last longer instead of using it everyday, which could irritate your teeth and gums. The last time I used whitening strips was about 7 years ago. I drink coffee and soda almost everyday. As long as you maintain your dental hygiene, you'll keep the whiteness a lot longer.

Philips Sonicare toothbrush (or any other electric toothbrush)

Use at least twice a day. This will keep your teeth super clean, hence, whiter. I cannot go back to manual toothbrushes. It's amazing what a difference it does in cleaning your teeth. Do not skimp on your toothbrush if you want whiter teeth.

Sensodyne Toothpaste

Get sensitive toothpaste because whitening strips will make your teeth super sensitive. You don't have to get a whitening toothpaste. Those just use more abrasive ingredients, which doesn't necessarily make teeth noticeably whiter.

Water and Gum

Always try to rinse water after every sip of a drink and bite of food. If water isn't available, drink your beverages through a straw and/or chew a sugar-free gum. It doesn't need to be whitening gum - plus gum is just good to have around because many people don't realize they have unpleasant breath.


Every night. I did this for 6 months straight (I normally flossed infrequently — like once or twice a week) and had a perfect dental checkup after flossing everyday. The dental hygienist didn't even need to scrap off any plaque. This also helps make the sides/gaps between teeth whiter.

Listerine Mouthwash

Use weekly or as needed. I doesn't have to be whitening mouthwash. Do not use it everyday because it will create an imbalance of good bacteria and saliva which is essential for a healthy mouth.

Oh, and get a tan :)

u/bicycle_mice · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I actually do use the Novamin formulation, I bought the UK toothpaste on Amazon and it wasn't too expensive with prime.

u/LateralThinkerer · 5 pointsr/Ultralight

It's the original "toothpaste" - you'd dip your toothbrush in water, then in the tin of powder to coat the bristles, then you're off. The tubes of prefab stuff came later.

Edit: There are a lot of brands still available - apparently there's a Colgate-branded version still made for the Indian market you can get here.

u/candacebernhard · 5 pointsr/happy

It depends on budget and so on - I would just look out for ingredients. Fluoride, nano-hydroxyapatite and xylitol are good. The next one we're trying is this CariFree brand.

But for a long time I've used Arm and Hammer's line of toothpastes. They tend to have low acidity/neutralize acids and aren't abrasive. I like the clean feel and gentle stain removing properties of the baking soda. It's not as sweet as other toothpastes though so the taste may be an adjustment.

Hope one of these works for you!! :)

u/TokyoEng · 5 pointsr/japanlife

I too suffer from canker sores and switching to SLS free toothpaste made a huge difference. You can get Sensodyne Pronamel, シュミテクト Proエナメル, in stores and it is SLS free. I personally use Sensodyne with Novamin. I've imported it via Amazon here, took about a month to arrive.

u/OfficialGoneZero · 4 pointsr/Showerthoughts
u/st0ney · 4 pointsr/Dentistry

You may want to change your toothpaste. While it has a RDA (Relative Dentin Abrasivity) of 83-100 and is less gritty than most whitening toothpastes it is still above the recommended RDA of 70 or lower. Whitening toothpastes are mostly junk IMO.

This is the best toothpaste available over the counter, again IMO.

u/BigNinja96 · 4 pointsr/AutoImmuneProtocol

I use Himalaya Neem & Pomegranate toothpaste, and really like it.

u/jeckles · 3 pointsr/Portland
u/EmeralSword · 3 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

I use the toothpaste Pronamel. Helps to strengthen enamel and keep it strong. Works wonders for me and my family. Yes, while enamel can't be rebuilt once it is lost, it can be strengthened, and as long as you still have some there is hope yet.

I also recommend-as my dentist did- to rinse your mouth with water once you have a surgary drink or a beer, or even anything to eat. It helps drastically cut down on the sugars and acids lingering on your teeth.
Don't forget to brush twice a day!

u/theblamergamer · 3 pointsr/MapPorn

While I'm not necessarily anti-bacon (it is delicious of course!), I do think it is a bit overrated. I mean it's a great breakfast food and I can support putting it on burgers even, but nowadays people put bacon on everything. Bacon on pizza, bacon on hotdogs, bacon in salads, bacon on mashed potatos, bacon flavored ice cream, bacon in people's drinks, even bacon toothpaste. So I just think people should maybe chill on the bacon a bit.

u/literallystupid · 3 pointsr/WTF
u/Nebakanezzer · 3 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

For anyone interested:

I've always asked myself the "enamel rebuilding" question. I would see sensodyne ads on TV for enamel rebuilding toothpaste, but I can never find it in the store. I always assumed it just fell under their "pronamel" line. Now this makes so much sense.

Do you have any literature on the effectiveness of Novamin? I am strongly considering switching toothpastes now.

u/jmurphy42 · 3 pointsr/legaladvice

I also saw the post about Novamin the other day. I think you may have misinterpreted what you read there. My impression is that the FDA has no problem with Novamin being available OTC, it's just that the manufacturer has chosen to control the supply and refuse to sell it that way. That wouldn't make it illegal to buy or sell.

If it was actually illegal to buy or sell it in the US, you probably wouldn't be able to order it via Amazon. That's just one of many options on Amazon too.

u/Immortal_Fishy · 3 pointsr/Coffee

It was actually quite a journey finding the right one. There's a whole slew of non-SLS toothpaste out there but 99% seem to decide they should remove fluoride too.

I eventually found Trader Joe's had a fluoride anticavity toothpaste with no SLS. Another benefit is it doesn't contain any sweeteners, which was odd when I first tried it as almost all mass-market toothpaste is highly artifically sweetened. It's really pleasant to use and affordable too.

I went ahead and found it on Amazon in case you don't live near a Trader Joe's. It's cheaper in store though so worth a visit if you live near one.

u/omapuppet · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions
u/sknnbones · 2 pointsr/funny

Use a sensitivity toothpaste like Sensodine Repair

u/Eurynom0s · 2 pointsr/freebies

They'll ship to the US from the UK site, it's just a 5 GBP shipping fee. But the lowest price I'm seeing on the US site right now from UK sellers is close to $14 for one tube (a couple of months ago my order was more like $7 for a single tube), so you may as well order direct from the UK site at a price that's more like $12 for 2 tubes including shipping. Be sure to order with a credit card with no foreign transaction fees.

It will probably take a week or two of using it before you really notice a difference. I've noticed that I no longer find myself reflexively bracing when drinking really hot or cold liquids. It's definitely a quality of life improvement.

Now I'm just trying to track down some travel sizes so that I don't have to go without while traveling (I hate checking bags and would hate to have to check a bag just for my toothpaste). For a Friday-Sunday weekend trip it shouldn't really matter but could start to matter if you're on the road for a week or two.

[edit] I just checked Canadian Amazon to see about travel sizes and NOTHING was eligible to ship to California, not even the full sizes, but had no such issues on the UK site. So I guess I'll have to try to score some travel sizes when I go to Vancouver in a few months, but for online ordering for home, it looks like the UK Amazon site is the easiest way to go.

u/selectix · 2 pointsr/funny

Here's a Tom's of Maine Toothpaste link on amazon

According to the reviews of this Sensodyne ProNamel, it also might be SLS-free amazon link

I'd check out a Whole Foods or similar healthy food store. They tend to have those types of items there, but I don't know for sure. I have a friend who said the switch made dramatic improvement for him. There are lots of new age/health stores in L.A., so I imagine it was easy for him to find it.

u/luminous_delusions · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Don't sip all day, use a straw if you can, and try to either brush your teeth 30-45 minutes after drinking or swish out your mouth with water.

Also, whitening products in general can help with minor stains if you're diligent about it. Strips won't do jack for the in between but some toothpastes are excellent for slowly removing staining. For example, I use a toothpaste from Japan that's pricey but has definitely kept the worst of my staining at bay and has gotten some of the stubborn stuff between mine to fade. You could probably find cheaper stuff though. I know my aunt that's obsessed with keeping her's super white loves the stuff with Arm and Hammer but I couldn't bear to use it more than twice.

FWIW, I generally drink 2-3 cups a day along with lots of tea and my teeth stay pretty dang white between my cleanings every 8 months. Not like, movie-star white of course, but a normal white according to my dentist.

u/EmberHands · 2 pointsr/bestof

Please please please try this I also have pretty shitty teeth but using this toothpaste from Europe has actually given me two of my only "All clear" cleanings from the dentist. All my "trouble spots" have stopped in their fucking tracks. Novamin is owned by GlaxoSmith Kline (sp?) and they only sell it to perscription drug places here in the states so it's not commercially available. My dentist approves of it, it also has fluoride in it, she's pleased with the results.

u/DeenaBeenaBoo666 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I also have a mirena IUD and have CC's, but I can't remember if I had them before or not - but pimples/acne on the chin is almost always hormonal. I started to use a toothpaste that is flouride-free and sls-free bc toothpaste with those products have been linked to CCs and have noticed a slight difference. I find that clay masks like the Aztec Clay Mask help in reducing/removing the CCs and hot compresses help as well.


This is the toothpaste I use now -

u/hikermiker22 · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

Tooth Powder is available in most health food stores. Colgate also makes some but I have not found it locally.

u/MaxK · 2 pointsr/askscience

Amorphous calcium phosphate. I highly recommend Dr. Collins (non-affiliate Amazon link) which has reduced my tooth sensitivity to cold (I can eat ice cream again) and contains a form of amorphous calcium phosphate known as amorphous calcium phosphosilicate (scroll to 'Calcium Sodium Phosphosilicate or Novamin').

u/kenlubin · 2 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

The version available in the US doesn't have Novamin, so you have to buy it from the UK.

u/PhantomGamers · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

If you live in the US I believe Sensodyne has a different formulation than what is used in other countries. It's possible whatever the active ingredient is in your prescription toothpaste is actually just what's available in the OTC version globally. You can actually get it on Amazon, maybe it'd be cheaper.

(The key here is the Novamin so you might be able to find even cheaper brands with the same ingredient as well)

Novamin toothpaste is the first and only toothpaste to improve my hypersensitive teeth. You can blame Glaxo-Smith-Kline for keeping it from becoming OTC in the USA and instead only selling it at tremendous markup through dentists.

u/contents_may_vary · 2 pointsr/aspergers

If you can find an equivalent of this toothpaste then it is unflavoured. I'm not bothered by toothpaste or brushing (I ground my teeth as a kid so I have many dental problems now and a strict dental hygiene regime) but young people I worked with could tolerate this toothpaste when they couldn't others. Some also preferred using these toothbrushes because it would cut down on brushing time by simultaneously brushing all sides of the tooth. Obviously brushing for two minutes would still have had better results but this was a huge improvement for many of them as they found the process so difficult to tolerate.

u/spokale · 1 pointr/conspiracy

CariFree CTx4 is the brand of toothpaste containing nano-hydroxyapatite that I use. NHA is arguably superior to NovaMin as used in European sensodyne, but I think there's enough research to show that both are superior to plain fluoride.

Carifree actually has a whole suite of products like mouthwash, xylitol gums, mouth-wetting sprays for dry-mouth, etc, that they've developed into an anti-cavity program that some dentists 'prescribe' their high-risk patients.

Here's some of the studies:

  • Enamel surface remineralization: Using synthetic nanohydroxyapatite


    >The use of biomimetic nanohydroxyapatite as a remineralizing agent holds promise as a new synthetic enamel biocompatible material to repair early carious lesions.

  • Nano-hydroxyapatite and its applications in preventive, restorative and regenerative dentistry: a review of literature


    >The nano-hydroxyapatite is a revolutionary material with a wide use in dentistry. With regard to restorative and preventive fields, nano-hydroxyapatite has remarkable remineralizing effects on initial lesions of enamel, certainly higher than traditional fluorides used until now for this purpose. Nano-hydroxyapatite is, in fact, a better source of free Ca, and this is a key element as regards the remineralization, the protection against caries and dental erosion.

  • Enamel surface remineralization: Using synthetic nanohydroxyapatite.


    >Thirty sound human premolars were divided into nanohydroxyapatite group (n = 15) and the sodium fluoride group (n = 15)...The results showed that the nanohydroxyapatite group produced a surface morphology close to the biologic enamel, the increase in mineral content (Ca/P ratio) was more significant in the nanohydroxyapatite group (P < 0.05) and the SMH recovery was closer to the baseline level in the nanohydroxyapatite group (P < 0.05).

  • In vitro effects of nano-hydroxyapatite paste on initial enamel carious lesions.


    >Forty-eight human enamel blocks were assigned to four groups (N=12): (1) control (without agent); (2) fluoride varnish (Duraphat); (3) nano-HAP paste (Desensibilize Nano P); and (4) casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) paste (MI Paste Plus)...After the cariogenic challenge, the nano-HAP group showed significantly higher KHN and %SMHR values than varnish. The CPP-ACP group showed no increase in KHN. The nano-HAP group showed, via AFM, a protective layer formation with globular deposits on the surface....SMHR and AFM morphology revealed that nano-hydroxyapatite paste showed a protective effect against in vitro enamel caries development.

  • Remineralization of early caries by a nano-hydroxyapatite dentifrice.


    >nHAP dentifrice caused remineralization comparable to a fluoride dentifrice, and inhibited caries development, thus suggesting that an nHAP dentifrice can be an effective alternative to fluoride toothpaste.

  • An In-vitro Comparison of Nano Hydroxyapatite, Novamin and Proargin Desensitizing Toothpastes - A SEM Study.


    >It was concluded that all the three desensiting agents were effective in the dentine tubule occlusion. In addition efficacy of nano-hydroxyapatite toothpaste was greater compared to the other desensiting agents.

    Novamin seems somewhat similar, it's a "bioglass" that is supposed to fill gaps in enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity, though it may also promote remineralization. Like I said, it's in sensodyne (interesting, it is not in US sensodyne, only in other countries like Canada and the UK).

  • Dentinal tubules occluded by bioactive-glass containing toothpaste exhibit high resistance toward acidic soft drink challenge.


    >The scoring and the percentage of occluded dentinal tubules by Novamin containing toothpaste was significantly better compared to arginine or the control toothpaste.
u/The_Wrocker_Franc · 1 pointr/amiugly

That's good that you are giving whitening strips a try. Don't use them very often because your teeth do become slightly more sensitive after using them.

I don't know the original cause of the white spots on your teeth, but avoid the Crest Pro Health line. It uses Stannous Fluoride which helps prevent gingivitis, but this type of fluoride essentially uses coating process that inadvertently causes staining on the teeth. This staining is cleaned off after going to the dentist. Amazon reflects my distaste of Stannous Fluoride even more.

For a solid whitening toothpaste I strongly recommend Crest 3D White.

I hope everything goes well for you.

u/bear_aware · 1 pointr/zerocarb

Sorta pricey but I like these better than any other "natural" toothpaste I've tried. If you can moderate the amount that you use with each brushing, they will last plenty long.

where are you seeing £3? Cheapest I see on Amazon is $7.80 and on ebay (from a place I'd be more inclined to trust) is ~$11/tube. Just be careful you are actually buying Sensodyne with Novamin because the USA packaging (without Novamin) looks EXACTLY the same. Only if you can read the actual package clearly and can either see the tiny print saying "Novamin" or can read the ingredients list.

EDIT: Ok I guess you were looking on Keep in mind that doesn't include shipping to the USA... which can be pricey if you're not factoring it in ahead of time

Thanks for the recommendation! I will ask my dentist about it, but he doesn't have a large office or anything so I am not sure if he has it. I found it online but it was ~45 dollars for 120g of the stuff which is too much for a college student like me :P.

Strangely most products are not even available in the US like sensodyne repair and protect.

The only toothpaste in the US that has one of those technologies is arm&hammer complete care enamel which has the same thing as enamelon.

Dr. Collin's toothpaste has novamin but no flouride so I am skeptical of it. Isn't fluoride pretty much the one thing we know works, and works well?

But if the MI paste is cheaper at a dentists that would solve all my problems. I could use that with biotene right?

here's the one I bought (or at least, Amazon says so). $9 with free shipping.

Already exists fellas caffeinated power toothpaste

My Mom has cancer and is currently undergoing chemo again to try and push it back (she has a brain tumour).

We’ve found that Sea-Bands have helped with the sickness. This could all be psychosomatic but she hasn’t felt sick when wearing them and her appetite (which went terrible) has returned as she feels able to eat.

My Mom’s also found she’s developed a problem with mint when brushing her teeth so I brought her some unflavoured toothpaste from Amazon and she’s been fine with that. She says it’s a little powdery but bearable.

Grease can also be an issue, like the smell of grease in the house can make you heave if you’re already feeling ill. So just be wary if you’re a big fried chip fan.

However, no two people are the same and hopefully you’ll sail through your chemo. Just remember to eat what you want, when you want it. You don’t have to eat big meals if you don’t want them. Take everyday as it comes and remember to smile even when feeling down.

You’ll be amazed at what smiling to yourself in the mirror can do for your mood.

Good luck honey x

Ah, I see, based on /u/kartoffeln514's response, it tastes bad? I don't use a strong minty toothpaste, so I never really noticed. I use Dr. Katz TheraBreath Oxygenating Toothpaste, which has a very subtle taste.

I'd stopped using sulfates skin or haircare, but I still had those chin whiteheads. Switched to sulfate-free toothpaste (Trader Joe's Anti-cavity Peppermint) and the whiteheads on my chin went away. I still have the occasional breakout, but those chin guys are long gone.

Bacon Toothpaste scares the living hell out of me. Im already not a big fan of bacon in the first place.

also Im interested in those Scaries because they look amazing ;____;

Not sure about gingivitis, but I started experimenting with Apagard.

Apagard Japanese toothpaste

It’s a sensitive teeth toothpaste, with nanohydrooxyapite, basically supposed to help fill in little imperfections, kill cavities without fluoride.

I’m liking it so far, my teeth feel super smooth. My teeth are looking a little whiter then the crest 3D white I was using.

Apparently people really like this because it’s a Floride free option. 🤷🏼‍♂️

that touch and brush. thing works well and those suction cups are top notch. Broke a mirror the first time I moved it heh.
Also the shark navigator. Badass vacuum cleaner. I always hear the jaws song when I vacuum now.

$20? I think you may be looking at the wrong seller. Here is the one I order on Amazon, the only downside is it takes 2 months to arrive so I buy them in bulk.

u/Dizzy_Slip · 1 pointr/Dentistry

You can get Novamin toothpaste in bundles of 6 small tubes for about $30. That's $5 for a small tube. But if you use it sparingly-- small dabs on the toothbrush-- it can last. I think it's a reasonable price, even if it's high compared to "regular" toothpastes.

u/lacker101 · 1 pointr/The_Donald

Don't know if you care but I get my toothpaste from the UK because "novamin" is patented in the US med monopoly and only available to dentists.

Just make sure the seller is from the UK. I order from NK Supplies - direct from UK

u/MrAkai · 1 pointr/snackexchange

The last order was 1 tube for $7.29 + $1.99 shipping (so $9.28)

I realized I was mistaken I ordered from not and it shipped from the UK.

It does look like it's gone up about a buck or so since then, but here's the URL:

Also one of the places I bought from via Amazon sells direct as well:

If you can make a trade with UK or Canada you can probably save some $ (and make a fellow snackexchanger happy) but if you can't arrange it, I've found these to be good sources.

When it comes to toothpaste, you have an alternative for fluoride. A really great one. It is called Hydroxyapatite. I have been using this for the last few years and couldn't be happier.

What is basically impossible to find is actually floss without fluoride coating. There is simply no way to find those new stick variety without fluoride.

And also there is of course water. I had at one point bought a Big Berkey water filter to filter out fluoride but it proved less practical than the fridge's water dispenser.

u/lecadavreexquis · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

I bought Plus White 5 Minute whitening gel and was very happy with the results.

It didn't get my teeth like crazy blinding white, but it definitely brightened them up a bit and was cheap and easy to use. And also didn't ruin my enamel or anything like that. I was at the dentist last week and got nothing but compliments on my teeth.

u/TheNoize · 1 pointr/bestof

Actually, I just ordered, this is the right link. It must be shipped from the UK :/ Thanks capitalism...

Switch to toothpaste that doesn't contain sodium laurel sulfate (SLS). It helped me out a ton when I started using Trader Joes natural toothpaste.

Trader Joe's All Natural Anticavity Peppermint Toothpaste with Baking Soda and Fluoride 6oz (Pack of 2)

u/aurirua · 0 pointsr/Dentistry

See this article.

This toothpaste will rebuild your enamel and can even eliminate scratches. Get either Apagard or Sensodyne that specifically has Novamin as an ingredient.

International toothpastes have been proven to have actual real, far greater cavity and enamel protection.

u/pimpmastahanhduece · 0 pointsr/funny

Not a dentist substitute buuuuuut.

u/LittleBigPancake · -1 pointsr/Guitar

I've used both Crest and Toms in the past. From what I've gathered from doing it a few times is that Crest is more effective (possibly due to the fluoride?) so I would go with that. For the toothbrush I imagine the softer the bristles the better as long as it still scrubs well.
