Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Dental Herb Company products unique?
Better ingredients, better results. We don’t take any shortcuts. We source only the finest natural ingredients which are proven to quickly improve the health of your gums and your mouth.
Are Dental Herb Company products free of artificial chemicals?
Yes! Our products are: Truly Natural®, alcohol free, vegan, free of artificial colors and synthetic dyes, free of artificial preservatives, not made with any genetically modified ingredients, and don’t contain gluten.
Are Dental Herb Company products tested on animals?
Never! We love our planet and all the creatures who live on it. We never test on animals.
Why is the color of Essentials Toothpaste different than what is commonly seen in commercial toothpaste?
Our toothpaste is darker in color than commercial toothpastes due to the natural herbs and essential oils it contains. We do not use any artificial colors or synthetic dyes in our products. However, despite the darker color, this paste will leave your teeth white and will not stain.
Why does the taste sometimes vary slightly from bottle to bottle?
The flavors of harvested herbs may differ subtly due to natural variations in growing seasons and conditions. These nuances do not affect the efficacy or potency of the products, just the taste.
Why are the Tooth & Gums Tonic and Under the Gums Irrigant packaged in dark amber glass bottles?
Our ingredients are so powerful they require special packaging, unlike conventional oral products. Even our toothpaste and gel have specially lined tubes for better protection.
Are Dental Herb products save for veneers, crowns, and dentures?
Yes, our products are safe and will not stain natural or artificial teeth.
Are your products made in the USA?
Yes. We are located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in the small town of Lancaster. Our company is family owned, and we are proud to be actively involved in our community.
What is xylitol?
Xylitol is a naturally sourced sweetener that has been shown to improve oral health by inhibiting cavity-causing bacteria from sticking to teeth and gums. While xylitol is great for humans, it’s not safe for pets.
Where is your xylitol sourced from?

Does the Tooth & Gums Essentials toothpaste contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)?
No, we do not use SLS in Tooth & Gums Essentials toothpaste or any Dental Herb Company products. SLS is a synthetic foaming agent used in many commercial toothpastes that in some individuals may damage gum tissue and cause mouth sores or allergic reactions. For this reason, all Dental Herb Company products are SLS-free.

Are your products gluten free?

Can you dilute Under the Gums Irrigant to create Tooth & Gums Tonic?
