Dr. Ken's All-Natural Maximum Care Toothpaste

Dr. Ken's All-Natural Maximum Care toothpaste ($7.99, 6 oz) is the first oral care line to feature the cavity and bacteria-fighting properties of green tea.  It's also anti-bacterial, fights cavities, gingivitis, plaque and it whitens teeth naturally. Inside each tube is Papain, a papaya enzyme that works as a natural whitener while baking soda neutralizes enamel-destroying acids.  Vegetable glycerin, aloe vera and carrageenan (seaweed) work to moisturize and soothe while you brush. 

Created by Ken Nussen, D.D.S. Dr. Ken's toothpaste comes in three flavors (wintergreen, cinnamon and spearmint) that are all fluoride-free.  Having tried all three I like the wintergreen best but have found all three to be sweet in taste and not too strong.  There are so many toothpastes that are so potent they make your eyes water and gums burn but Dr. Ken's isn't like that at all.  Stevia acts as a natural sweetener creating a mild, non-abrasive cleanser that leaves a long-lasting clean feeling.  I really enjoyed using each flavor every time and loved not having that burning mouth feeling afterwards.  My teeth felt smooth and clean for hours afterwards as well. 

If fluoride is needed the Wintergreen Clean and Spearmint Cool come in both formulas while the Cinnamon is fluoride-free only.  Because of this and the mild yet sweet flavor of all these toothpastes would also be a great family/child-friendly option, I think.   Dr. Ken's All-Natural Maximum Care toothpastes are sold at Whole Foods, Duane Reade, Sprouts, Harmon Stores, Shaw’s, A&P Supermarkets and other retail stores. Also available on and Amazon*. A host of other products like mouthwash, floss and a travel kit are also available.
