Here is a list of ingredients that kill beneficial bacteria. You should avoid using oral care products that include these ingredients. This list will be updated regularly to include recent inquiries from our clients.
Oral Care Ingredients That Kill Beneficial Bacteria
Fluoride - Use NHAP, Nanohydroxyapatite products instead. It re-mineralizes naturally and more consistently and it is not toxic.
Hydrogen Peroxide - Overuse can damage gums and dentin. Infrequent use to whiten enamel is fine when products are used as directed by your dentist.
Tea Tree Oil
Avoid using alcohol based mouthwash or any mouthwash with claims that it kills bacteria.
