I've heard both good and bad things about the use of fluoride. Why does Tom’s of Maine use this ingredient?
Most of the debate surrounding fluoride has to do with the controversy around whether or not municipalities should fluoridate their water supplies. While Tom's of Maine doesn't want to get into that debate here, they can certainly tell you about the use and safety of fluoride in their toothpaste and mouthwash. Tom's of Maine uses this ingredient because fluoride is a proven decay preventative that has been found safe and effective by the Food and Drug Administration. Tom's of Maine also realizes that not everyone wants or needs fluoride in their oral care products, so they also offer toothpaste and mouthwash without fluoride.

Product is fine, but personally I'm not thrilled with the juicy flavor. I'll stick to plain old mint.
