I’ve been using Truthpaste botanical toothpaste for more than six weeks and now feel confident enough to write a review.
To be honest, I liked this toothpaste a lot, right from the start but I didn’t want to write a review until I was sure it could live up to the promise of being suitable for sensitive teeth.
If I’d had any problems with sensitivity, I would have shared my Truthpaste experience much sooner. However, I just had to wait and see how things went.
Before I go any further, I must point out that this review is for the Original Truthpaste toothpaste with peppermint & wintergreen flavour. I do not know, so cannot confirm, if the other Truthpaste options are as good, although I strongly suspect that they are.
Why I Chose to Switch to Truthpaste
I’ve recently become aware of the concerns a lot of people have concerning fluoride. After doing some research, I have some concerns about it as well and have recently bought a water filter jug. However, to further limit my fluoride exposure, it made sense to change my toothpaste as well.
The truth is, despite what a lot of people tell you, there are no strong arguments for using fluoride in toothpaste or adding it to the water supply. However, there are good reasons to avoid fluoride so that’s what I want to do.
When I began looking for fluoride-free toothpaste, I discovered it’s very hard to find. It’s even harder to find a toothpaste that has no fluoride in it and is also suitable for people with sensitive teeth.
My search for a toothpaste that is free from fluoride and also kind to sensitive teeth led me to the Truthpaste website.
At £8.99 per (100ml) pot, Truthpaste is a lot more expensive than my previous toothpaste. I was using Aldi’s own-brand sensitive toothpaste. It cost me less than £1.00 per tube and after using it for a few years I can confirm the version it does what it is supposed to do. The only problem for me is, that it has fluoride in it.
So, there I was reading customer reviews on the Truthpaste website. I liked what I was seeing, but manufacturers’ websites can be biased so I was not wholly convinced.
Nevertheless, I had a good feeling about Truthpaste and decided to buy it and see how well it worked for my sensitive teeth.
When my order arrived, it was very well packed. The company charged me £2.95 for postage but there had been no scrimping with the packaging so I consider the shipping charge to be fair.
This is the first time I’ve used toothpaste out of a glass jar. All of my previous toothpaste was in plastic tubes. If I remember correctly when I was a child, the tubes were made of some type of metal foil but that was a very long time ago.
Truthpaste distributes its herbal toothpaste in glass jars because it has concerns about the use of plastic. As with the use of fluoride, there are some very good arguments for limiting your exposure to plastics. Again though, that’s not something that I need to delve into too deeply here. The subject is too complex to cover in this Truthpaste review and is probably a little off-topic.
When I was reading the Truthpaste customer reviews, I saw comments made by people claiming their teeth had never felt so clean. At the time I didn’t pay much attention to this. It wasn’t important to me. My primary concern was finding a good fluoride-free toothpaste suitable for sensitive teeth.
However, the first time I used Truthpaste I noticed my teeth felt incredibly clean too. Part of me wonders if it’s just because the reviewers put the idea into my head but my teeth really do feel very clean now and after six weeks of using Truthpaste as my sole toothpaste, I am not having any problems with sensitivity.
Other Truthpaste Benefits I Noticed
Sometimes when I brushed my teeth with my old toothpaste, I had a problem with bleeding gums. That’s no longer the case so I am confident this herbal toothpaste has done wonders for my gun health.
The other thing I noticed is that Truthpaste appears to be very good at removing stains from my teeth. In the past, I’ve used several brands of whitening toothpaste, some of them very expensive, none of them worked as well as Truthpaste does.
I wasn’t seeking this benefit so I didn’t notice it at first. Then one day I took a look at my bottom teeth and noticed the stains between them had almost gone.
I like espresso coffee. I always make it strong and drink it black so there were always stains between my bottom teeth. Only the bottom ones though. I have no idea why. It’s just the way it is.
A few months ago, the dental hygenist removed the stains, but they soon came back. Now they are almost gone again. Quite frankly, I’m amazed.
The Brushing Experience: How Truthpaste Compares to Normal Toothpastes
Brushing with Truthpaste is a little weird at first. Other kinds of toothpaste create a thick foam in your mouth. Truthpaste does not and when you spit out the Peppermint & Wintergreen option you see a green froth landing in the basin. It’s unusual. Green froth instead of white foam, that’s how I would make the comparison.
Truthpaste doesn’t taste like standard toothpaste either but I really like the taste of the one that I’m using.
However, if you decide to switch to Truthpaste, don’t be surprised if you notice a little residue clinging to your tongue. You can get rid of this by having an extra good rinse but I prefer to stick to a quick swill because I want to give my gums a little extra exposure to the medicinal abilities of the Truthpaste herbs.
Truthpaste Review Conclusion
As you may have gathered, I am very impressed with Truthpaste. All I originally wanted was a toothpaste that had no fluoride in it and would work for sensitive teeth. Truthpaste fits the bill in both regards and does a lot more on top. I’m going to continue using it. For me, there is no going back.
I think it’s quite expensive but, all things considered, I don’t mind. As far as I am concerned, it’s worth every penny. I recommend this brand of toothpaste 100%.
