Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Contains Xylitol To Help Prevent Plaque And Silica For Whitening.

Spearmint Flavored.

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to introduce our new Natural Anti-Plaque plus Whitening Clear Gel Toothpaste.  Using xylitol, our toothpaste helps control plaque buildup, naturally, without artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives, for a clean, healthy-feeling mouth.  We've added silica to clean and whiten teeth, removing stains without harsh abrasion that can damage enamel.  Over time, and especially as we grow older, plaque forms on our teeth.  If plaque isn't removed, it can reduce plaque buildup, and remove stains that form on your- teeth.

For more than 30 years, Tom's of Maine has been creating natural care products for you and your families.  We use only the finest natural ingredients, never test our products on animals, and we never use animal ingredients.  Thank you for using our products, and please let us know what you think! ~ Kate & Tom Chappell

Why Anti-Plaque plus Whitening Clear Gel Toothpaste? Tom's Anti-Plaque plus Whitening Clear Gel Toothpaste helps control plaque buildup and whiten teeth, every time you brush, without artificial ingredients or harsh abrasives that can damage enamel.

Fluoride-free formula - Some people do not want fluoride in their toothpaste.  We produce a fluoride-free toothpaste because we respect our customers' diverse needs and interests.

What is silica?  Silica is a mild abrasive derived from sand which removes stains that form on teeth.

By Willow on December 4, 2011
When I bought this, I didn't realize it was fluoride-free. Normally I wouldn't choose this, however, this toothpaste still performs very well. So if you seek a fluoride-free toothpaste, Tom's of Maine Antiplaque & Whitening is for you.

PROS:
- nice foaming action, not too much and not too little
- great, fresh peppermint flavor
- freshens breath wonderfully, and keeps it that way better than most toothpastes
- doesn't dry mouth out
- slightly gritty texture (nothing wildly abrasive, though) which helps scrub teeth.
- great for using on battery-powered/rechargeable toothbrushes

CONS:
- no fluoride (unless that's what you're looking for, then it is a pro)
- I don't notice any profound whitening properties. I think it helps prevent stains more than removing them. I drink coffee and tea daily, and my teeth aren't darkening at all, so I think this toothpaste is more of a stain prevention rather than whitener.

OVERALL:
A great toothpaste that tastes wonderful and has ingredients I love. No artificial sweeteners which can dry out a mouth, causing bad breath sooner. Seems to clean my teeth very well. Highly recommended if you don't want/need fluoride.

Verified Purchase
Love the smell of this toothpaste. Have been using it for a month now and since it is all natural I will continue to use it. Only thing I do not see is whiter teeth, but since that's not the reason why I bought it, I am fine with that.

Tom's of Maine Toothpaste

Tom's is a small company, employing fewer than two hundred people. It was founded in 1970 and then purchased by Colgate in 2006. Fortunately, Colgate has left Tom's alone to manage their business according to their original principles.

Tom's makes natural products. The toothpaste contains no sugar, sweeteners, or artificial flavoring. By contrast, I looked at a tube of Colgate toothpaste that I have on the shelf. It contains "flavor," whatever that is, "saccharine," and "propylene glycol." The last ingredient is a less-toxic form of anti-freeze. One advantage of Tom's toothpaste is that we do not have to worry about ingesting poisons when we use it.

I have been using Tom's for years. The toothpaste comes in many flavors. On Amazon, you can find Peppermint, Spearmint, Fennel, Orange-Mango, Cinnamint, Wintermint, Apricot,
