Our products are formulated using Truly Natural® ingredients. We combine only pure essential oils (not their derivatives or synthetic equivalents) with alcohol-free extracts of organic botanicals. The precisely calculated proportions of oils and herbs work synergistically to establish an environment that relieves gum inflammation while helping to rebuild gum tissue and freshen breath.
Yes! Our products contain:
Tooth & Gums Essentials is an improved version of Tooth & Gums paste. This updated formula has the same great essential oils and herbal extracts, with the added benefits of xylitol and aloe vera. Tooth & Gums Essentials has replaced Tooth & Gums Paste in our product lineup.
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. Xylitol is included in the Tooth & Gums Essentials toothpaste formula to promote a healthy, balanced oral environment and moisturize to improve dry mouth discomfort.
The non-GMO xylitol we source is derived only from North American hardwood trees.
No, we do not use SLS in Tooth & Gums Essentials or any Dental Herb Company products. SLS is a synthetic foaming agent used in many commercial toothpastes that may damage gum tissue and cause mouth sores or allergic reactions in some individuals. For this reason, all Dental Herb Company products are SLS-free.
Yes. Our vegetable glycerin is derived from non-GMO palm oil.
Yes, all Dental Herb Company products are gluten free.
Yes, all Dental Herb Company products are vegan.
Yes. Our products retain their full potency for 2 years from the date of manufacture. They may be used safely after the expiration date, but we cannot guarantee their efficacy beyond that date.
We advise all patients to consult with their healthcare professional if they are concerned about using the products while they are pregnant or being treated for a medical condition.
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.
Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may diminish the effectiveness of our products. If allowed to freeze, bottles may be thawed. The efficacy of the products is not affected by freezing.
The powerful essential oils and natural herbs in Dental Herb Company products need to be protected from light and oxygen. The dark glass bottle ensures the efficacy of the product by protecting the pure essential oils and natural herbs from sunlight. Dental Herb Company products should be stored in a cool, dark place, away from heat sources. Always keep caps screwed on tight.
No. Tooth & Gums Tonic is not a diluted version of Under the Gums Irrigant. Under the Gums Irrigant contains different proportions of herbs and oils than Tooth & Gums Tonic.
No. Dental Herb Company products do not stain tooth enamel, but may cause temporary discoloration of a toothbrush. Discoloration of the toothbrush can be prevented by rinsing the toothbrush with warm water after brushing teeth with Tooth & Gums Essentials.
Tooth & Gums Essentials 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, the paste will leave your teeth white and will not stain.
No, we never test any of our products on animals.
We advise you to consult your veterinarian. Dental Herb Company products have not been tested for safety with pets. Tooth & Gums Essentials contains xylitol, which should not be consumed by dogs. https://xylitol.org/xylitol-and-dogs/
