I’m one of those people who always get anxious when I go to the dentist. Probably because I’ve had so many fillings over the years. When I was younger, I swear, every time they’d tell me I had a new cavity despite the fact that I took decent care of my teeth. But as an adult who now has to pay my own dental costs, I do take it a bit more seriously. I’ve started using all clean dental products and the last time I went to the dentist the hygienist told me I have the cleanest teeth she’s ever seen!

In this post, I’m going to share the best 5 clean dental products to use, so hopefully, your hygienist will tell you that too!

Why I stopped using fluoride

I switched to all clean dental products about two years ago after learning the truth about fluoride. Are you aware that fluoride is a poison? Yeah… the people that handle fluoride have to wear full-on protective gear because it’s so dangerous. Fluoride has been said to cause cancer, brittle bones, white spots on teeth (dental fluorosis- Steve has these), and even neurological impairment.

Think about this… it’s advised to call poison control if a child swallows more than a pea-sized amount of toothpaste yet they still put it in our products and pump it into our tap water!! It makes no sense… And most water filters don’t filter fluoride. this is why I purchased the AquaTru water filter. Before that I had a Berkey (see my comparison HERE). Clearly, my dental hygiene hasn’t taken a hit without fluoride… *if you want an AquaTru or Berkey this post compares the two and has discount codes for each one!

This is what I use in my dental routine:


I’ve tested quite a few fluoride-free toothpastes over the past two years and my favorite is definitely this one with Hydroxyapatite because it has so many benefits and especially helps with my super sensitive teeth. Hydroxyapatite also helps people with reoccurring cavities, it remineralizes your teeth, strengthens your enamel, helps with sensitivity, and it whitens! I have noticed in the few months I’ve used it that my teeth and gums aren’t nearly as sensitive as they used to be.

I’m not going to lie to you and say I floss daily. I don’t BUT I do floss around 3x a week. I never got into using string to floss- it’s just a hassle. I much prefer using the wands with floss on the end like THIS.

I also use my water flosser occasionally. They’re the best because they spray a hard line of water between your teeth and gums and really get in there. They’re a little messier than the floss wand but they make your gums feel so good and clean! I find that using warm water makes it more enjoyable than cold.

The best dental floss methods


I don’t use an electric toothbrush daily- I prefer a manual one and THIS ONE is truly the best. It’s really small and is SO soft! It has microfine bristles that reach into areas most toothbrushes can’t. It makes my teeth feel so clean! This is probably the reason I can get away with not flossing every day.

I also have THIS electric toothbrush and out of the many I’ve tried over the years it is my favorite. I dislike the feeling of things vibrating in my mouth, especially first thing in the morning, and this one isn’t bad! Plus the head is tiny so I feel like it’s much easier to use. I use it one or two times a week.

Tongue scraper:

I’ve used a tongue scraper forever. I never want to have bad breath and I feel like this really helps with that! Tongue scrapers remove bacteria, improve your breath, and improve your sense of taste. I use THIS one and I really like it.

Teeth Whitening:

This is the best teeth-whitening product I’ve ever used. It takes just 10 minutes and works within days! I also use coconut oil and oil pull for 5ish minutes a day.

What are the Benefits of Oil Pulling?

  • Reduces bacteria
  • Helps with cavities
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Treats bad breath

My holistic dentist

I just switched to a holistic dentist and I am so pleased with my experience! They used a sonic cleanser to clean my teeth instead of the metal scraper. The noise was pretty obnoxious but it’s not nearly as uncomfortable as the metal scraper.

Then when she did the gum test I got 1, 2, 3, and a few 4’s- but she pushed harder than any other dentist I’ve ever been to. She said my gums didn’t bleed at all! She also said when people have higher numbers in the back it could be from getting their wisdom teeth out. It’s could be leftover gum inflammation or scar tissue that increases that number. So if you feel like you have great dental hygiene but can’t get your numbers down this could be why. I didn’t have any wisdom teeth to remove so that’s probably why my number is so low.

Airway Scan

They also did a scan of my airway. This was SO COOL. It’s called Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and it takes a photo of my airway, skull, and jaw. A healthy airway is 12-14mm (mine was 13.9) and anything less can cause issues like:


-put you at risk for obstructive sleep apnea

-teeth grinding & clenching

-cause a malpositioned jaw.

If your airway is too small they make a custom appliance similar to a retainer. It helps to grow your airway. And by fixing your airway you can help with neck and shoulder tension. My friend even said his airway appliance has helped his hip pain!

I’m so proud of my clean teeth! Whenever you switch to cleaner products you always question if they’re really as effective as the non-clean ingredients we’ve used forever… Well, clearly my body didn’t need fluoride to keep my teeth in top shape!

Hope this post inspires you to try some of my top dental products!

  1. Hello Lauren!
    I just discovered you and I read your review of HoneyLove bras and shapewear. I also have excess back fat and have a difficult time finding a bra. I’m wondering if you found a brand and style name that you like. It’s SUCH a difficult search. Even if I find a good side shaper, the back fat overfloweth . And I’m not even particularly heavy. NRA size is 36C depending on the make.
    I’d REALLY like to find a Bralette if you know of one.
