My periodontist had recommended Sensodyne, which I had previously used, but after several swigs a day of peridex (chlorhexidene), an antibacterial mouthwash I needed to use for ten days after each periodontal surgery, my teeth had yellowed considerably. So I tried Colgate Total Advanced Whitening, which is much easier to use than whitening strips. It also tastes fine, contains fluoride to help prevent cavities, resists tartar and plaque buildup, gives 12-hour protection, and has the ADA seal of approval.
Now, however, after researching on the Web, I am concerned about its component triclosan, which the FDA is currently investigating and which the Environmental Protection Agency has classified as a probable human carcinogen.
Some facts: Triclosan provides 12-hour protection because its polymer gantrez attaches to the teeth. Found in many antibacterial soaps, deodorants, and Colgate Total toothpaste (and some Sensodyne products as well), it reacts with chlorine in tap water to form toxic chloroform, which is linked to cancer, and believed also to disrupt endocrine function. Triclosan contains chemicals similar in structure to toxic PCBs, and is also used in antimicrobial pesticides, under the names of cloxifenolum and microbicide.
My own state representative, Edward Markey (Chairman of the Energy and Power Subcommittee, one of the most powerful subcommittees in the US House), has been urging both the FDA and EPA to ban its use in personal care products. I have great respect for Repr.Read more ›
I find a huge value in this bottle. When used properly, the science does not fail. It has streamlined my health expenses (after 'aging out' of parents dental coverage) and has brought me immense comfort in eating everyday things I used to forgo while preserving my budget, hey, the fewer dental expenses the better! As long as this product is offered on Amazon I'll be a customer!
I'd like to mention that previously I have had not so great dental habits like daily soda, and coffee, no flossing etc... but now my current dentist doesn't believe it!

It's a log of toothpaste to buy at one time, but for our family of four it will get used relatively quickly.
This is a great deal and this is my favorite toothpaste out there.
After 14 days of use...twice daily, I really did notice whiter teeth and a whiter smile. I had considered getting the strips prior to going on vacation for 3 times the amount. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Rei Herrera
