Dentiste PH sent me a summer kit last month and I have been testing out their toothpaste since that time.
Dentiste offers premium, natural products for oral care. They have the regular Dentiste Plus White toothpaste, the Dentiste Intensive Whitening Toothpaste, and the Dentiste Mouthwash / Oral Rinse.
They also offer different kinds of sets like an Overnight Stay set that include toothbrushes, mini size of the toothpaste, etc…
- Harnesses the Power of 14 Natural Ingredients to prevent Oral Bad Breath Bacteria
- Prevents morning breath
- Has stable Vit. C – an antioxidant that protects cells against damage and heals wounds for healthier gums
I checked the Dentiste website, and they don’t really say where the brand originated, but looking at the product, it says that it is manufactured in Thailand.
I have been using the regular toothpaste, Dentiste Plus White, and the mouthwash. This is what the toothpaste looks like.
It’s a bit thicker than regular toothpastes, and feels a little bit like a clay mask in consistency.
I feel like I need to use more toothpaste. I feel like I need to use a bit more of Dentiste to get the same level of tingle-ness and lather as I do from a commercial toothpaste. Since it’s a natural product, I kind of expected it, so it’s not a dealbreaker.
It cleans the teeth really well. They claim that the silica complex helps get rid of plaque without destroying natural tooth enamel, and I do feel that my teeth are smoother and polished, but not roughly abraded. The Dentiste toothpaste lathers just as well as commercial toothpastes.
Leaves a minty, tingly feeling, but it’s not as harsh as regular toothpastes. The toothpaste / mouthwash are strongly minty / tingly, but in such a way that is not painful. You know how sometimes you feel like your gums and mouth feel raw after brushing and mouthwash and it felt like you were gargling acid? I didn’t feel that with Dentiste. My inner cheeks and gums feel normal after brushing – there’s no mapakla aftertaste nor the feeling that the lining of my gums and inner cheeks were stripped.
I did not get chin pimples with Dentiste. I get chin pimples using regular, commercial toothpaste. A derma told me long ago that this was because of the fluoride in toothpastes, when toothpaste foam dribbles down the chin. I can’t say for sure if it’s true, but I did notice that I get chin pimples from regular toothpaste, and to minimize getting chin pimples, I MUST wash my mouth / chin area very well with a face wash every time after brushing, or else I would get pimples. For the whole month that I was using Dentiste, I did not get any chin pimples, and admittedly, there were many times when I was too lazy to wash my face after brushing.
Eliminates Morning Breath – sometimes. It does help reduce morning breath by a lot, but I don’t feel like it totally eliminates it, at least not every single day. I dunno, maybe it’s just me. Some days are okay, like, there’s barely any morning breath. Some days, there’s a little morning breath. But overall, morning breath is significantly reduced, so that’s still very good in my book. I feel like to be really effective, I need to use more toothpaste, and I need to gently brush my tongue, gums, etc with the toothpaste as well. The product is a bit difficult to squeeze out of the tube, so sometimes maybe I don’t squeeze out enough toothpaste.
Of the ingredients, the one that I noticed right away was Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). It’s an ingredient in most shampoos and beauty products to make them lather. While I’d rather not have it in my toothpaste, I like my toothpastes to lather, so I’ve accepted it as part of the package. I tried an SLS-free toothpaste before and I didn’t like it – it was just gummy and didn’t lather, and brushing my teeth with it was weird.
The majority of the ingredients are extracts. If you check the ingredients list below, there’s no Fluoride, and I’m happy about that. With the many bad news about fluoride coming out from natural medicine advocates, it’s something you should look into.
Sorbitol & xylitol are safe in low doses when ingested, and since we’re rinsing out the toothpaste anyway, I am not particularly bothered by them.
I like it. It is more expensive than regular toothpastes, so it’s just a matter of whether using a natural toothpaste is worth the extra money to you.
For me, aside from the benefits that Dentiste claims for their toothpaste, the biggest reason that I like it is because it is a natural product, for the most part. For some years now, I have been worried about the fluoride in my toothpastes, but since there wasn’t really any easily accessible alternative to commercial, fluoride-laden toothpaste, I didn’t have a choice and still used them.
Now, there’s a commercial toothpaste that is fluoride-free, and it works just like a regular toothpaste. It’s pricier, but still within reach, and it’s not crazy expensive.
Another reason I like this toothpaste is because it doesn’t give me chin pimples.
