By Horacio Villarreal on May 27, 2011
My experience and why I like it:

I have been using Tom's of Maine flouride free toothpaste for almost two years now and am glad I made the switch. I originally switched mainly due to fear after hearing the dangers of flouride. However, this is controversial and I will not go too much in depth. However, what I did realize was that I am probably swallowing a decent amount of flouride by not completely rinsing my mouth out every time I brush (usually I just swish/spit once). By using this toothpaste you will not have to worry about swallowing the toothpaste as there is no warning label on it, though i don't recommend swallowing it. Though flouride free, it offers much protection against cavities as I am a twice a day brusher and have actually seen a decrease in cavities after switching. If combined with flossing (as I only recently have started doing), you will almost certainly not get any cavities. You may have to get used to the bland taste and watery texture, but i think the flavor is acceptable. Since making the switch, I had have experienced a dramatic decrease in canker sores likely caused by harsh ingredients in typical Colgate and Crest toothpaste. This alone perhaps is enough of a selling point. Soon more people will make the switch to more natural toothpastes like this. If you want the benefits of natural toothpastes, try Tom's of Maine or even Burt's Bees (which my dentist recommended). Also, it is important to note that I prefer Pepperment over Spearment Tom's as the taste is significantly more pleasant.

I bought 6 tubes of this at Amazon, so I'm committed to it. It has a good rating at [...] which is the main reason I bought it. And it has no flouride, which I love, and it's not a gel, which I likewise love.

Here are my findings:

Pros:
-metal tube, which is really cool and easy to crimp
-less aftertaste than conventional toothpastes (i.e. it actually rinses out of my mouth, unlike most toothpastes where I have to wait an hour before I can eat no matter how much I rinse)
-lathers/foams well, for good tooth coverage
-mild on the gums, less irritating for me personally
-strong whitening power, gets my teeth cleaner and more polished than conventional toothpastes, which I didn't at all expect

Cons (major con!)
-what is with the taste? I have tried baking soda toothpastes before, and this one is even worse in the taste department than those - there is not enough of a peppermint taste or the refreshing tingle I was hoping for, tasted mostly of dirt/salt, the likely culprit being the silica in it
-more expensive than conventional pastes

I will keep using this product on principle and for the health of my teeth, but the taste is a real downer. Otherwise, a great product.

I used Tom's for a few months and tried to make myself get over the awful taste. However, I noticed that I had staining on my back tooth and decided to stop. I have always had great dental health and I've never had a cavity. Well, that was until I went to the dentist after using this toothpaste. I did nothing out of the normal aside from change toothpastes. I would not recommend this.

Good tasting tooth paste. I find that the tooth paste does not stay on my tooth brush or my teeth as easily as the tooth paste (not natural) that I was using before. I like knowing that I am using tooth paste that does not have aluminum or other nasty ingredients. I recommend it!

Still the best toothpaste around. You'll never go back to the major brands after using Tom's. Once you've been spoiled with REAL mint instead of artifical flavor and sweeteners, the standard brands just don't leave your mouth feeling fresh.

Use to love Tom's of Maine, but after being bought from the original founders, the product has changed in quality. Its somewhat watery compared to what it use to be. Use to love the original tin/metal like tube that held the toothpaste, but it has been changed to a nondescript squeezable plastic tube that is rather sterile to the touch.

I like Tom’s of Maine in general on account of their environmental awareness and no animal testing policy. I had found that their Antiplaque and Whitening toothpaste has a dehydrating effect and I usually had to drink or rinse with a lot of water after brushing my teeth to get rid of the chalkiness. However, now I’ve started using less toothpaste and also letting it hydrate/foam a little in my mouth for a minute or two before I do any serious brushing and that has helped a lot.

Several vigilant reviewers have pointed out that Tom’s (now owned by Colgate-Palmolive) add sodium lauryl sulfate (aka SLS or SDS) to their toothpaste. There’s no evidence that SLS causes cancer but it can be a skin irritant at higher concentrations and has been shown to exacerbate canker sores in sensitive people. SLS is not naturally occurring – it’s made from fatty acids such as those found in coconut oil. Tom’s says: “When used in our toothpaste, SLS has limited contact with the gums and is then rinsed out. At the levels used in our products, SLS has no known toxicity — not even when ingested.”

On the fluoride front, the addition to fluoride to water (practiced in the US but not in most European countries) helps to reduce dental decay but also carries some risks. I think we (involuntarily) get enough fluoride in our water – supplementing this with the even more fluoride in toothpaste is unnecessary in my view, considering that there are several concerns regarding its use. Quick summary of fluoride dosage and toxicity: around 5 grams is a potentially lethal dose for an adult and 60 mg for an average 2 year old. If a child were to accidentally swallow less than half a tube of toothpaste (such as Colgate Kids), it could be fatal. Then, around 0.
