In your book “Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye”, you recommend Crest regular toothpaste for its sodium fluoride. When checking the ingredients, it looks like Sorbitol is the number one ingredient. I thought Sorbitol is not good for your teeth, as mentioned in your book. Now I am confused. Can you help clear things up for me?
Hi and thank you for your question and close observation!
I wish we had a toothpaste made with good silica, good sodium fluoride and xylitol. Unfortunately we do not have this.
After years of searching and looking at results with patients, I feel Crest is the most tested, safe and well made of the toothpastes out there and it works in the system that I recommend.
I think sorbitol is much more of a problem in candies and when eaten where it upsets gastric bacteria. As the ingredient in the paste and also in the rinses I wish it were gone but it does not impact our results. You can use a tiny amount of toothpaste and it will work a grain of rice size is all you need.
How do you find the rinse system is working for you?
