5 Toothpastes Better Than Crest

5 Toothpastes Better Than Crest

When choosing a toothpaste that you think your emergency dentist Reading would approve of, you’ll be drawn to conventional ones like Crest and Colgate. They make a lot of promises to be sure, but how well they deliver on these promises is up for debate. Sometimes they even contain ingredients that do more damage than good. A toothpaste is only designed to help the brush break up the film over your teeth, and they are not able to whiten your teeth; no matter what promises they make. Here are five kinds of toothpaste better than Crest.

Nature’s Gate Natural Toothpaste

It could take a little time to get used to using a natural toothpaste because they tend to have different flavors and textures than conventional ones. This is one reason that Nature’s Gate natural toothpaste is a good natural toothpaste because it’s not all that different from some conventional toothpaste. It’s free from fluoride, parabens, artificial flavors, and sweeteners, which is another reason it comes recommended.

Dr. Ken’s All Natural Maximum Care Toothpaste

This toothpaste was developed by the dentist Dr. Kenneth Nussen, and it’s another one of that solid transitional toothpaste that contains less sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, which can be dangerous. It’s made from green tea extract and a pain, a natural enzyme from papayas used to treat inflammation and protect the delicate skin of the mouth.

Green People Toothpaste

This non-toxic toothpaste is fully certified organic and is consistently rated well by dentist and consumers alike. Free of fluoride and SLS, this toothpaste comes in a range of flavors made possible through the use of natural essential oils. If you’re used to conventional toothpaste then try the peppermint version, or use aloe vera if you have sensitive gums.

Desert Essence Toothpaste

This brand is known for making a range of natural toothpaste containing antiseptic tea tree oil, including ginger, fennel, and neem; the “toothbrush tree” of India. The twigs of the neem tree are chewed in India over brushing teeth as the plant has natural antifungal and antibacterial properties. The toothpaste also have a fresh flavor thanks to natural mint oils.

Lavera Toothpaste

Lavera is a toothpaste made from sea salts, which are great for keeping your teeth cleaned but you may need a little time to get used to the flavor. Because sea salt naturally makes your mouth water, it enables saliva to naturally flush out your mouth. Sea salt is also packed with trace elements and minerals to keep your gums strong and eliminate bad bacteria in your mouth. Just be warned that some of these toothpastes have fluoride in them. You should choose an organic version, free from fluoride, to keep your mouth healthy.


There are many different kinds of toothpaste out there. As good as brands like Colgate are, you may get better – not to mention healthier – results if you use an organic and natural toothpaste. These are free from chemicals and fluoride, helping you to keep your mouth clean naturally and safely.
