Natural Toothpaste & Cavities, Here’s Why I Switched to Twice

About a year ago I got my first cavity…or should I say, cavities.

Then it came up in conversation with my sister one day that she and her husband BOTH had their first cavities too. The only common denominator with all of us is that we had been using natural, fluoride-free toothpaste.

So, my sis and I did some research. We stumbled across an article about a mom who, like us, was all about natural foods and medicine. She had given her young daughter fluoride-free toothpaste, because it was thought to be healthier. The daughter ended up with multiple cavities.

I wanted to see if anyone else had experienced what we had, so I hopped on my Instagram stories to share about our toothpaste situation. I received message after message of people sharing their experience. People whose dentist, just like mine, had begged them to switch back to a toothpaste with fluoride in it to prevent cavities. Ya know why? Because most of them had gotten cavities after switching to fluoride-free toothpaste. Now I was convinced.

I decided to do a little experiment and switch back to my old toothpaste. I knew it had yucky ingredients, but I didn’t know of a toothpaste that was between the natural and conventional worlds, until I found Twice. I’ve been using this brand for several months now and absolutely love it. Twice is entirely vegan, non-gmo, gluten-free and free of harmful ingredients like sulfates, PEGs, carrageenan, triclosan, and alcohol. I love that I finally found a happy medium!

Another thing I forgot to mention…I have sensitive teeth and luckily Twice protects against sensitivity, strengthens the enamel, prevents cavities, and of course whitens. AKA healthy and effective. I went for a check-up with my dentist last week, and I’m pleased to report I’m cavity free!
