Toothpaste & bottled water

Can anyone recommend a tried and tested toothpaste for sensitive teeth for hypos. I use Sensodyne Foam. Which seems to be the only toothpaste not too sweet and works with my 3 minute brush in the morning. And doesn’t send my teeth back to their original sensitivity. It has the dark blue stripe so not as natural as I’d like. I’ve oil pulled and used a herbal tooth paste for my tongue brushing. But after 2 solid months my teeth were still super sensitive.

Secondly I’m trying to get onto using bottled water only as research shows London has high fluoride levels not to mention the 18 other chemicals to clean it with. Any recommendations? Or better yet filters - I hate the waste plastic bottles make. facebook.com/SkyOceanRescue... I average about 3/4 2 litre bottles a day. Voss is expensive but might be the lesser of two evils. I prefer the taste of spring water. But mineral water is fine to wash meat and use in hot drinks.

Lastly kettles - I’ve changed cookware to glass and ale Crueset but no idea about aluminium free kettles.

Any in sights or links welcome.

Have a great weekend and thanks in advance,

Ebony

If you carry water around with you you could buy an unbreakable stainless steel flask perhaps? They come in various sizes and can be used for keeping liquids cold or hot. It is something I plan to buy for myself very soon. Just haven't got around to it yet.

great! Wasnt sure as it wouldnt be for everyone, but I think they look fab and am considering one too..

I sympathise re water in London, tap water tastes vile there from my limited experience. Re bottled water....Any water can be called spring water. It can even come from a tap somewhere, as I understand labelling law. Mineral water has to have come from the ground.

Hi Ebony

I'm had very sensitive teeth and very sore gums too before I gave up gluten and I was sensitive to many toothpastes especially whitening ones but found Arm and Hammer Sensitive pro or sometimes I used arm and hammer enamel protect really helped - both state have liquid calcium so not sure if that is what helps. They are baking soda ones and definitely not sweet :-)

Sorry can't help with the water as we are one of the few places in uk that don't add flouride? I do know some bottled can have none of the good stuff you need to so worth reading up a bit on it or getting a filter instead?

Thank you @Saggyuk

Arm and Hammer taste horrible. I remember they posted samples ages ago. But I’ll give the sensitive pro a go. But Enamel Protect 😷 never again! I love Euthyrol tooth powder but that strips my teeth. Colgate is far to sweet. Although I import their Herbal brand as it’s natural (green stripe).

The Sensodyne Foam works well, I get such a clean feeling after.

I’ll wait for recommendations on water - thanks 🙏🏾

Hi, I had unbelievably sensitive teeth and the dentist prescribed super-high fluoride toothpaste for it: nightmare for hypo. I tried AloeDent Sensitive and it's been working so well I haven't used anything else now for over 2 years. It's fluoride free. I had a few days' sensitivity while I transitioned from Sensodyne Repair but I honestly think Aloedent is better. The dentist has remarked recently that my oral hygiene is excellent, and all I do is brush with this twice a day, plus a nightly floss if I remember. Re water, I used carbon sticks (black and Blum) but can't vouch for their fluoride removal. If I could afford it I'd get a Berkey filter, which does remove fluoride, rather than use plastic bottled. Kettles: what about a stainless steel one with s covered element? There are loads: I got mine in M&S.

Interesting! I think my step mother uses AloeDent, so I think I know where to get the sensitive from. I’ll look into Berkey filters thank you. My logic is spend upfront if it’ll save in the long run. My Bodum kettle has a covered element. But I thought all stainless steel was bad - but a covered element makes sense. Thank you Dandy Thyro 🤗

Reply

OMG, I've never heard of stainless steel being bad, and have been advised numerous times to avoid aluminium and get stainless steel instead. I just hope you're mistaken! I checked out Berkey at Amazon: still expensive at around £300 for a machine, but there are reverse osmosis systems for much less, though you'd have to pay a plumber, and some filter jugs also now claim to filter out fluoride (+ the rest) for much less.

Reply

I think I am. It’s probably aluminium not stainless steel being good along side glass. I need to dig up the article.

Thank you for looking up Berkey, I was expecting high hundreds maybe even a thousand. So that’s good news. I’d have done it sooner had I known, to save on the water that I do buy and the environment.

Your message helped a lot. Thanks again.

Have you tried Fluoride-free toothpaste? Fluoride interrupts iodine absorption, so is a bad thing for everybody, but particularly for hypos. There are umpteen varieties out there, so you don't have to have minty or sweet. ( Cinnamon, aloe, bicarb, herbal....)

I like Kingfisher fluoride free. Cheapest I've sourced is Dolphin Fitness if you buy 4 tubes or more at a time.

If you go down the fluoride-free route, remember to change your fluoride mouthwash!

What does your hygenist/dentist say about your dental health? Are you flossing and irrigating enough to keep the gums healthy?

Have you removed gluten from your diet yet? Any food that impinges on your health will have a negative effect. And gluten for hypos is a Biggie!!!

If you really like spring water rather than eau de tap, then buy it in glass bottles and decant into a portable container. The glass is recycled, your container is reused. I use Sensodyne Repair and Protect, thiugh you aren’t supposed to rinse it off for full protection and after-taste!

Reply

Hello Bob00752,

Voss in glass bottles is about £2.50 for 900ml. Even with a Costco that is too expensive for me. And the kids are still plastic (hopefully recyclable now) I think Sensodyne R&P has the blue strip here in England 😒

I was wondering if Brita filtered water is good for us as the filter has certain minerals to filter through. Does yours have anything that’s appropriate to us Hypos? If so which brand is it please?

Reply

My Sensodyne R&P is a consistent white paste throughout. It does have flouride in it though. Waitrose Royal Deeside is 95p for 750 ml so £1.27 per litre. I mainly drink tap water decanted via a Brita filter and put that in a glass bottle in the fridge - cost of that is replacing the filter every few weeks (hint, buy in bulk when on offer!)

Reply

I drink Evian water it's cheap here in France. I use a glass water filter jug also for the tea and coffee. I use a toothpaste called Kingfisher which is fluoride free but does contain baking soda.

Reply

Hooray! My dentist (holistic) advised making up my own......sodium bicarbonate with a little aloe vera mixed in. I've never looked back and if I ever run out I keep kingfisher baking soda tube in b/room cabinet.

As regards water.....if you can afford it look at reverse osmosis. In Devon the water is soft and good but I still use RO. Did you know that the residue chemicals from slug pellets is being found in drinking water......I didn't but I'm not surprised. As for well intentioned drinking fountains countrywide etc you would have no idea what that water contained so if one is opting to cut plastic would you be overdosing on fluoride etc!!

I may sound like a dinosaur but until the world players DO something about their plastic waste every thing else is a sideshow......ďrinking straws & bottles etc.......I mean, does my root veg really need to be swathed in plastic........Oy veh!

I have always been told to brush first thing in the morning and last thing at night for two mins, and flossing.

Yes I used to have sensidibe toothpaste a few years ago before I learnt about fluoride.

Jason toothpaste is fab and there are many iotger types to try.

Hello!

I also use Green People fluoride-free toothpaste and my sensitive teeth have been fine with it - no issues here!

For water filters, Berkey are about the best - but not cheap and not small! A good investment if you have the space and money though. Have you looked at putting a charcoal filter stick in your water - helps absorb impurities. I don’t think I’d go down the bottled water route, with all the attention on plastic waste, but I understand it is more convenient.

Good luck!

Hi Ebony,

I also use fluoride free toothpaste, Kingfisher but in 4s from ebay. Having had numerous problems with my gums I find this gentle, I'd never have toothpaste with fluoride added!

The water is a big issue for me also, living in West Cumbria we have flouride added to our water, so bottled water in our household, that doesn't solve the bathing problem though. If you are able, a water filter fitted under your sink would be an answer to the drinking water at least, to remove the fluoride.

There is a group in our area called Flouride free Cumbria, I have managed to attend a couple of meetings, they are trying to bring to peoples attention this problem and the link to Thyroid problems as well as fighting to have fluoride removed.

Best wishes

I use Weleda salt, too. There are several other flavours, but the salt gives me a better feeling of clean. I also have an upstairs sink where I use a Doctor Organics aloe vera one. So I mix between the two, and my teeth feel better than they ever have. I worry the salt may be a bit abrasive to use twice a day every day. But I haven't ever had any problems.

I had sensitive teeth when I was using whatever I could get my hand on, usually the name brand. If I'm away and use a friend's whitening brand (which they all seem to be these days), my teeth become sensitive after a day or two, and I'm back unable to drink cold water, etc. But on my current toothepastes I've forgotten I ever had sensitivity.

I have found a toothpaste I love that is natural and has good results. I order it from Holland & Barrett as few stores have them on the shelves. Weleda salt toothpaste. At first it seems a bit strange as it doesn’t foam but you get used to it, and it feels so clean and fresh. I use a Brita jug to filter my water and also use it in my kettle and have no scale at the bottom. When going out I use a BP free bottle

Good morning, just been reading through your info and would like to add that I used Ultradex toothpaste. Sensodyne was my usual buy but read on a vegan site about Ultradex and would never go back. I'll add that after 77 years on this Planet and having used all sorts of makes that this is the only one that leaves my mouth and gums feeling good.

Enjoy your research!

Good afternoon Bellfire,

I tried Ultradex toothpaste when it was first out and called Retardex. I must have very sensitive taste buds as I find it tasted unusual too. I forced myself to finish the tube because it was (£7.95) so expensive! I don’t am the Mint flavouring to the mouthwash and I think it tasted like sterilising fluid (or at least what I think it would taste like, never tried it).

I agree with you on the brand - the mouth wash is amazing.

Thank you for reading through and taking the time to message.

On the assumption that you don't want to spend much money on water you might find this bottled water worth trying :

TOOTHPASTE - I had terrible sensitive teeth & bleeding gums. I started using 'Euthymol' fluoride free toothpaste and I get nothing but praise from my dentist and hygienist and no longer have any issues. I purchase in Sainsbury's for £2 but I believe you can buy it on line as well.

WATER - my husband bought us a water distiller and we have been drinking distilled water ever since. You should see what is left behind in the distiller, it looks disgusting - I wish I could attach a picture. Our water is supposed to be fluoride free but you would wonder what else is in it when you see what is left behind. I have had no adverse effects drinking distilled water, I was having terrible issues with kidney stones and recurring kidney infections with horrendous pain in my back but this has now gone.

Mtcorr, I've heard there are dangers of having distilled water, as you're taking out ALL the minerals, and some of those we need. There are examples of people becoming very sick when they're forced to have distilled.

I haven't looked back and the benefits have been great. I am now after having drank it for some time with no adverse effects a little cynical about the reports about the dangers when you see the crud that remains.

I’m with you there. If you drink distilled regularly and are concerned there are various mineral mixes to add to the water. Something like Fulvic gives only traces of minerals so that you can put something back in if concerned. But I have found distilled ok for me and well filtered for other purposes.

Hi Ebony, I've been hypo for 25 years, and a few years ago developed an allergy under the lower lip (a red mark which does not hurt but is unsightly).

Have you looked into an Reverse Osmosis system? It doesnt remove everything in the water but removes alot and weve found its worth the money in the long run. We’ve also tried zero water.

Hi Ebony,

Just pick a toothpaste and mouthwash that are fluoride-free. The fluoride is causing the sensitivity. In the past I tried Sensodyne for years with minimal improvement. Now, I've used Xylawhite and Jäson's for nearly 10 years and the sensitivity has never returned. When I can't find these brands I just buy another fluoride-free paste that I can stand the taste. I also refuse fluoride treatments at the dentist's office. As far as cookware I just buy the highest grade stainless steel I can afford. For water I carry a tempered glass bottle that is enclosed in a rubberized cover to protect it from minor mishaps and fill it with either distilled or reverse-osmosis filtered water. I just buy whatever brands are available near me or the health food stores here sell 5 gallon BPA jugs that you can fill with their filtered water. Best of luck

I don't have sensitive teeth, but I do occasionally get teeth that hurt. I have problems with my jaw, skull and vertebrae, so if any one -or combination of - is misaligned, I get sore teeth.

Just from a personal perspective, anyone suffering from toothache might benefit from seeing an osteopath, chiropractor etc. just in case it is referred nerve pain from somewhere else.

I would also recommend everyone to read up on oral health/gut health/gluten intolerance/celiac. Celiac can be identified by the state of teeth, most easily in children. Interestingly, the relatives of those with celiac, but who are not themselves celiac, can have similar dental and oral health problems. Even minor gluten sensitivity can affect oral health, particularly with enamel density and ulcers.

Has your dentist referred you to a consultant about your oral health? Repeated use of antibiotics for your teeth might indicate a deeper problem.

Certainly, there is a vicious cycle of poor immune system/infection/antibiotics/infection/compromised health.

I haven’t had a cold or flu in 15 years. Then a few bouts of antibiotics and I was knocked out twice the winter.

My acupuncturist recommended Meridol toothpaste for teeth/gum issues. Online it looks like they manufacture a variety of toothpastes, & it may be made in Germany. Has anyone tried out this brand?

Thank you Clarrisa. I’ll add this one to my list I can’t believe there are so many!

I've tried a few fluoride free toothpastes, Euthymol is easy to find but not that nice, Kingfisher, Greenpeople, Sarakan, Alodent, however Ecodenta black whitening is OK ~& they do a triple one too.

I used to have sensitive teeth, especially hot & cold, but gone now as Vitamin D replete J :D

Good morning JMTS,

It’s near the top of the list! My OVD kicked on an I’ve alphabetised all suggestions 😁. Thank you so much. I wish I knew how to put them into a Dropbox file for future reference.

Have a great day.

I make my own toothpaste - lots of recipes online. Cheap and fun to experiment :)
