Product Review: Dental Essentials

I was contacted by the company Dental Essentials to do a review of their supplements that are supposed to prevent cavities and keep them strong. It is considered safe for people of all ages including children and even pregnant woman. The first one I thought of was my daughter who has a problem with cavities. I think some people are prone to them more than others even if they don’t eat more sugary foods and she is one of them. I have her teeth cleaned every 6 months and she brushes and still gets cavities. I started giving her the dental essentials liquid drops. I would just put it in a glass of milk and have her drink it. It has no taste so she doesn’t complain that her milk tastes funny. Each one ounce bottle of The Dental Essentials – Liquid contains a balanced blend of vitamins D3 and K2 (as MK4 and MK7). I know vitamin D is great for your teeth. The Dental Essentials Complete Tablets contains a balanced blend of vitamins D3 and K2 (as MK4 and KM7), calcium phosphate, magnesium and zinc> My husband, son and I are taking the tablets. I think it will help our teeth especially the kids because this will give the nutrients they need for their teeth. According to their website, typical results can be achieved within three months, sometimes sooner. To maximize the results of “The Dental Essentials”, eat a diet with limited added sugar and cereal grain products. Cereal grain products contain phytate which binds to calcium, effectively leaching this crucial mineral out of the body.

The Dental Essentials is the first and only nutritional supplement specifically formulated to promote cavity resistance. The ingredients in The Dental Essentials have been clinical proven to reduce the incidence of cavities by up to 95%. When taken daily, The Dental Essentials can also help heal tooth decay that may have already begun. The Dental Essentials is free of gluten, soy, milk, egg, shellfish and preservatives. It is considered a great natural substitute for fluoride-based products by many green moms. It is available in both tablet and tasteless/odorless liquid dropper form as well. There is a lot more information about their products on their website

There is also a really good article on their blog about the prevention of cavities using vitamin D Take a look at it it is very interesting.

Is fluoride safe?

There seems to be more information coming out questioning the safety of fluoride in our toothpaste and water supply.  I read about it years ago and been buying fluoride free toothpaste for my kids for the last 3 years.  I figured that if there is some truth to it I was not going to take a chance.  There is already fluoride in our water supply.  I bring my kids to the dentist and neither one of them have had any decay or cavities from not having fluoride in their toothpaste.  There are some good fluoride free toothpastes out there.  I have to admit it did take testing out several different toothpastes to get the right flavor that they liked.  They do prefer Burt’s Bees brand.  When I mentioned to some friends that I only buy fluoride free toothpaste for my kids they looked at me like I was crazy.  A couple of them have switched to fluoride free after they read up on it.  Here is a couple of websites you can go to to research it for yourself.  It’s your call.
