Are the Natural Clay Tooth Powders safe to use with amalgam fillings?
- Yes. Although bentonite clay does absorb metals when put into contact for prolonged periods of time, this is not an issue when brushing for the recommended two-minute time period. That being said, try your best to not swallow the tooth powder after brushing as it may have drawn in small amounts of metals along with other toxins and plaque from the mouth.
Will the turmeric in the Natural Clay Tooth Powder stain my teeth?
- No. It may seem surprising, but turmeric has been shown to have a brightening effect on the skin and teeth. It will, however, stain your toothbrush bristles yellow, but we believe the many benefits of incorporating turmeric into oral care outweigh this issue.
Can I use the Natural Clay Tooth Powder if I have sensitive teeth?
- Yes, and we highly recommend it if you do! The clove in the tooth powder is naturally analgesic, so it can actually help decrease tooth pain and sensitivity.
Is the Natural Clay Tooth Powder safe for everyday use?
- Yes it is! Our tooth powder is designed to be used at least twice per day, in place of conventional toothpaste. The ingredients in the tooth powder are gentle and non-abrasive. However, discontinue use and consult with your dental practitioner if any negative effects or changes in your oral health occur.
