Eric Davis Dental - Fluoride Free Toothpaste

Fluoride Free Toothpaste: Why Use It?


There is a general misconception that fluoride is beneficial for oral health. This is why it features in municipal water and toothpaste - as it is believed to prevent dental decay and dental disease. The truth, however, is that fluoride is harmful to human health. This is why Eric Davis Dental is a ‘fluoride free practice’, and also advocates for the use of fluoride free toothpaste when brushing and cleaning teeth. In fact, we have worked with our sister clinic, Nutrition Diagnostics, to develop our very own fluoride free toothpaste substitutes; The Brushing Solution and PerioMix.


Brushing Solution

The Brushing solution is a toothpaste substitute formulated from a blend of hydrogen peroxide, oil of cloves, peppermint and organic aloe vera, and has been specifically formulated to improve oral hygiene and restore the natural balance of microbes in the mouth.

The Dangers of Fluoride - Why to Use Fluoride Free Toothpaste


In order to understand the benefits of fluoride free toothpaste, it is important to understand the dangers of fluoride and the health risks it poses. The IAMOT - International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology - lists the following risks associated with fluoride exposure.

Acne and dermatological conditions
Arterial calcification and arteriosclerosis
Bone weakness and risk of fractures
Cancer of the bone - osteosarcoma
Cardiac failure
Cardiac insufficiency
Cognitive deficits
Dental fluorosis
Diabetes
Early puberty in girls
Electrocardiogram abnormalities
Harm to the foetal brain
Hypertension
Immune system complications
Insomnia
Iodine deficiency
Lower fertility rates
Lower IQ
Myocardial damage
Neurotoxic effects, including ADHD
Osteoarthritis
Skeletal fluorosis
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
Thyroid dysfunction


Many argue that the levels/amounts of fluoride in toothpaste and municipal water are negligible and are, therefore, not capable of causing harm. However, this notion misses the point. If something is known to cause harm to human health, shouldn’t we actively avoid consuming it or putting it in our bodies? What’s more, the notion that fluoride protects teeth from decay is also dubious. Why? Because we know from studies that dental decay was a rarity until recently. Most primitive tribes didn’t suffer from any form of dental decay despite never having used fluoridated toothpaste or water, as noted by Dr Weston A Price who observed only one cavity per 1000 teeth throughout his studies.

Unlike regular toothpastes and oral healthcare products, Nutrition Diagnostics fluoride free toothpaste substitutes  acknowledge the oral-systemic link and are designed to not only foster healthy teeth and gums, but positively impact total body health - changing the oral environment.


What Causes Decay and Why Fluoride is Not The Answer


So, what is responsible for the recent influx of tooth decay? In short, the answer is mostly to do with diet and how it affects the way fluids move within the teeth. There are three primary divisions of the tooth; enamel, dentin and the pulp chamber. Fluid moves outwards through these sections - travelling from the pulp chamber, to the dentin, to the enamel and then into the mouth. By altering the function of the endocrine glands (like a poorly formulated diet does), the flow of fluid between these parts of the tooth is reversed - causing bacteria, acids and other harmful things to be sucked into the tooth instead of flowing outward as they should. So, it is often sugar, refined flour and other foods of commerce that are responsible for reversing this flow of fluids and ultimately causing decay. By comparison, diets rich in protein, vegetables and fats favour the tooth’s defence against decay.


This means that decay is caused from the inside - not the outside - of the tooth. The role of fluoride in toothpaste is to harden the enamel on the outside of the tooth. The idea is that this makes the tooth more resistant to decay. However, that logic only holds if the teeth decay from the outside, which they don’t. So, if fluoride is harmful to human health and also does little (if anything) towards preventing tooth decay, you can begin to appreciate the efficacy of fluoride free toothpaste.


Our Very Own Fluoride Free Toothpaste Substitutes: The Brushing Solution and PerioMix


Under the guidance of Dr Eric Davis, we have worked with our sister clinic, Nutrition Diagnostics, to create two fluoride free toothpaste substitutes - the Brushing Solution and PerioMix. Both are formulated from all natural ingredients and are made and manufactured here in Australia to the very highest standards. They can be used individually or together as a part of our oral health protocol, which is designed to protect both the teeth and gums.


The Brushing Solution



The Brushing solution is a fluoride free toothpaste substitute formulated from a blend of hydrogen peroxide, oil of cloves, peppermint and organic aloe vera. It has been specifically designed to create a healthy oral environment. It does so by oxygenating the mouth and restoring alkalinity - it has been balanced to a neutral pH of 7 for this very reason. Unlike regular toothpaste, The Brushing solution is in liquid form, and can be used as toothpaste and mouthwash.
