Use only a small amount of this paste and your teeth will still feel fresh and clean after you brush. It has virtually no foaming properties and non-standard taste so it may be a bit of a change from traditional toothpaste, but the tea tree oil seems to be a great natural stain remover. The main ingredient is Dicalcium Phosphate Dihydrate which is basically a salt that the label says is a “low abrasive cleanser.” This explains the flavor, which is somewhat salty and somewhat antiseptic (from the tea tree oil) but we don’t mind it. It also contains Hydrated Silica which could possibly be damaging to tooth enamel. After a month of using this product 2-3 times a day, our teeth still appear white and cavity-free, but only a trip to the dentist will tell.
About $5.25 for a 3 oz tube.
