Most of us have a normal tooth brushing habit, but the type of toothpaste you use can also greatly affect how your teeth look and feel. This is especially true if you have sensitive teeth and gums. Some mainstream toothpastes can be fairly harsh, but luckily there are some great all-natural options on the market. Here are a few of them.

Perfect for sensitive incisors and gums.

If you have sensitive teeth and gums, you probably dread eating everything from hot soup to ice cream cones, and brushing can be no better. Thankfully, there are a number of toothpastes on the market that help relieve sensitivity. This option from Hello Oral Care is great for anyone looking for relief without questionable ingredients. This toothpaste is free of SLS, artificial sweeteners, and other harsh ingredients like micro-beads and instead uses aloe and coconut oil to polish and soothe.

Tom’s of Maine was one of the first highly-recognized all-natural toothpastes on the market, and they are still one of the most popular brands today. Tom’s of Maine is a fluoride-free option that cleans and protects teeth. It’s also cruelty-free and lacks from artificial preservatives, dyes, and flavors.

Extra gentle for your little ones.

Getting your kiddos to brush their teeth before bed can sometimes be a feat, but Hello Oral Care has created a toothpaste that both tastes great and is a product that you can feel good about. This watermelon-flavored option (where was this when I was a child?!) is great for kids of all ages. It is a fluoride-free toothpaste that strengthens enamel and prevents cavities. Plus the kid-friendly flavors go beyond the typical mint, which can be harsh for little ones.
