The Natural Dentist FAQ:
Q: Why is the mouth rinse bottle so hard to open?
A: The cap is designed to prevent leaking on the way to your store or on the way to your home. Unfortunately, that does make it a little harder to open than some of us would like. The good news is: there’s a secret for easier opening! First, without squeezing the flat tabs that you think you need to squeeze, unscrew the top as far as it will go (it won’t go far). Then, press on those squeeze tabs just long enough to get past the lid-locking mechanism. Now, you can unscrew normally (and easily) the rest of the way without squeezing. It really works!
Q: What does Vitamin B12 do?
A: Vitamin B12 is a beneficial ingredient that supports healthy gum tissue and red blood cell development. The Natural Dentist uses cyanocobalamin, most commonly used in supplements and fortified foods.
Q: What is olivamidopropyl betaine?
A: Olivamidopropyl betaine (from olives) is a plant-based emulsifier. It has taken the place of Poloxamer 407 in our products and helps the essential flavoring oils combine with the water base of the rinse.
Q: What does demulcent mean?
A: A demulcent soothes or protects irritated tissues. The two demulcents in The Natural Dentist products are vegetable glycerin and aloe vera gel.
Q: Are any of The Natural Dentist products mint and menthol free?
A: For those who want to avoid mint, The Natural Dentist does offer mint-free alternatives. The Natural Dentist's Healthy Gums Orange Zest Mouth Rinse, Anticavity Orange Zest Toothpaste and Cavity Zapper Berry Blast Fluoride Rinse do not contain any mint or menthol. The Natural Dentist's Cavity Zapper Toothpastes for kids contain menthol but no mint.
Q: Are The Natural Dentist products Kosher?
A: At this time, The Natural Dentist products are not certified kosher. However, all of their ingredients are plant-based (non-animal, no animal testing). Even their glycerin, a product commonly sourced from animals, is vegetable-based and comes from coconut or palm oil.
Q: I've heard that some other mouthwash brands cause staining. Will The Natural Dentist Mouth Rinse stain my teeth?
A: All of The Natural Dentist Mouth Rinses contain all natural ingredients that are water soluble and do not cause staining of teeth or burning. The Natural Dentist's rinses contain natural plant extracts that will not stain your teeth or your sink!
Q: Does The Natural Dentist use a synthetic fluoride?
A: The Natural Dentist uses fluoride sourced from a natural mineral. The Natural Dentist uses sodium fluoride, derived from fluorite, a calcium fluoride-rich ore.
Q: My rinse seems to be a different color than the last bottle. Why is that?
A: Unlike chemically-produced artificial colors, the botanical ingredients that The Natural Dentist uses to color their products sometimes differ from batch to batch due to natural variances caused by environmental factors. This will occasionally cause some differences in the color of their product from one bottle to the next. The Natural Dentist strives to make their products as consistent as possible.
Q: Why does my product smell/taste different than the last bottle?
A: Unlike chemically-produced artificial flavors, the natural flavors and herbs that The Natural Dentist uses in their products sometimes differ from batch to batch due to natural variances caused by environmental factors. This will occasionally cause some differences in the smell or taste of their product from one bottle to the next. The Natural Dentist strives to make the taste of their products as consistent as possible. The Natural Dentist is happy to replace any bottle that you think tastes or smells different or unusual. Please contact The Natural Dentist to return the unused portion of the bottle at their expense.
Q: Are there drug interactions with ingredients in The Natural Dentist products?
A: None have been reported, so The Natural Dentist is not aware of any interactions. Your physician or pharmacist can help you answer any questions you may have about drug interactions.
Q: How frequently should I use the rinse?
A: Because Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse is safe and natural, you can use it as often as you like for good gum health and a fresh-feeling mouth. Routine use is 2 times per day. For special problems (sore or bleeding gums or after a dental procedure), dentists recommend using the rinse up to 4 times per day.
Q: I already brush and floss—why should I rinse?
A: Brushing and flossing are the foundation of good oral health but rinsing offers many benefits that aren’t covered by brushing and flossing. The American Dental Association (ADA) now recommends a three-step oral care routine – brush, floss and rinse. Rinse allows you to get to hard-to-reach places and offers a more extensive period of contact than brushing and flossing alone. Bacteria cause gingivitis and more serious forms of gum disease. Dentists recommend The Natural Dentist rinse as an extra measure of protection for the soft tissue in your mouth and the health of your gums.
Q: Is it safe to swallow The Natural Dentist's rinse?
A: The Natural Dentist does not recommend drinking the rinse, but small amounts are swallowed whenever you rinse or gargle. This is perfectly safe.
Q: Why choose natural toothpaste and mouthwash?
A: Many products contain artificial and harsh ingredients, dyes, preservatives and alcohol, which can be absorbed through the soft tissue in your mouth. The Natural Dentist has equal or better results using natural ingredients and will contribute to the overall health of your body.
Q: Is it okay for my child to use a fluoridated toothpaste or rinse?
A: Fluoride toothpastes and rinses are safe for adults to use on a routine basis, when used as directed. The recommended dosage is based on correct topical use, which does not include ingesting (swallowing) fluoride toothpaste. Supervise children when they brush or rinse with a fluoridated product, teaching them to spit, not swallow. For children under 2, consult a dentist or pediatrician.
Q: Should I rinse my mouth out with water after using The Natural Dentist products?
A: The Natural Dentist does not recommend rinsing with water after using their products because that will limit its effectiveness. If you do not rinse with water, The Natural Dentist will continue to remain effective, gradually diminishing as your saliva washes it away. For best results, don’t eat or drink anything for one half hour after you rinse. The longer the rinse can be in contact with the surfaces in the mouth, the longer it will help to soothe and cleanse your mouth.
Q: Should I rinse before or after I brush?
A: For best and long-lasting results, The Natural Dentist recommends using their rinse at the end of your oral care routine with the exception of their Pre-Brush Whitening rinse.
Q: I am pregnant; can I still use your products?
A: While The Natural Dentist products are formulated to be gentle and safe, they recommend that you check with your doctor before use during pregnancy.
Q: Which of The Natural Dentist toothpastes or rinses would be best for preventing cavities?
A: All of The Natural Dentist products are formulated to aid in overall mouth and gum health. For targeting cavities specifically, The Natural Dentist recommends using one of their fluoride rinses and toothpastes as fluoride is a cavity preventing ingredient. All of The Natural Dentist toothpastes and a number of their mouth rinses also contain Xylitol, a natural sweetener and cavity preventing aid.
Q: Will any of your products help with periodontal disease?
A: The Natural Dentist products are formulated with natural cleansing and soothing ingredients. Their herbal blend has been scientifically tested in leading laboratories and in clinical studies to assess its ability to kill germs and reduce plaque.

A: The Natural Dentist is always seeking continual improvement in every aspect of their products—efficacy, flavors, color, texture, etc. If you are fond of a product they have discontinued, they apologize. But Natural Dentist hopes you’ll try them again to see if you can find a “new favorite.”
Q: Why have some of The Natural Dentist flavors changed?
A: The Natural Dentist researches customer preferences, and conductestasting panels when they create flavors, but they also understand that taste is a very subjective matter and there are limits on number of flavors that they can offer.

Q: Where are The Natural Dentist products manufactured?
A: The Natural Dentist products are manufactured in the United States.
Q: Does The Natural Dentist test their vegetable glycerin for safety?
A: The Natural Dentist is committed to ingredient safety. As reported recently, a cheap and sometimes toxic ingredient, called DEG (diethylene glycol) was illegally substituted for vegetable glycerin in toothpaste manufactured overseas. The Natural Dentist routinely conducts two screening tests to confirm that their glycerin does not contain DEG, and their products are manufactured in the United States, according to FDA regulatory standards.
Q: Is The Natural Dentist's vegetable glycerin sourced in China?
A: The Natural Dentist's vegetable glycerin is not sourced in China.
Q: Are any of The Natural Dentist's ingredients genetically modified?
A: It is not The Natural Dentist's intent or their policy to source any plants altered by genetically modified organisms (GMOs). However, agricultural experts believe that many American crops have been unintentionally affected because there are ultimately no barriers to cross-pollination. Therefore, they cannot certify that their US-cultivated plant ingredients have not been affected.
Q: How do you source your natural ingredients?
A: All of The Natural Dentist's herbs are specially cultivated in the United States, not wild-crafted. This helps to make their products safe and consistent. The Natural Dentist's practices of cultivation and sourcing are environmentally sustainable.
Q: Where does The Natural Dentist's fluoride come from?
A: The Natural Dentist uses fluoride sourced from a natural mineral. They use sodium fluoride, derived from fluorite, a calcium fluoride-rich ore.
Q: Are The Natural Dentist products hypoallergenic?
A: Due to the wide range of sensitivities to plants and natural ingredients, The Natural Dentist can’t guarantee that their products are hypoallergenic (not allergy-causing) for every individual.
Q: Does grapefruit seed extract interact with medicines that I take?
A: Certain medications interact negatively when taken with grapefruit juice. There is no grapefruit juice in The Natural Dentist's grapefruit seed extract and The Natural Dentist has no indication that the grapefruit seed extract in their Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse has any interaction problems. Please check with your doctor/pharmacist if you have questions.
Q: Do The Natural Dentist products contain artificial colorants?
A: The Natural Dentist products do not contain any artificial coloring. Their rinse and toothpaste obtain their color from plant-based components.
Q: What is SLS? Why do you highlight the fact that The Natural Dentist toothpaste is SLS-Free?
A: SLS stands for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, a detergent used as a cleansing agent in most toothpastes that also helps to create foam when you brush. Just as soap can be irritating to your skin because it removes natural oils, SLS is a detergent that can irritate the gums when used on a daily basis. It can cause sloughing of gum tissue and is also known to cause canker sores in the mouth. The Natural Dentist offers a gentle, low-foaming alternative that is safe for everyone, including those with sensitive mouths.
Q: What is vegetable glycerin?
A: The Natural Dentist's vegetable glycerin comes from coconut and palm oil. It is a protectant that helps to soothe sore gums and mouth irritations. It also helps to balance and maintain moisture levels and is safely used in a wide variety of personal care products and foods.
Q: Is fluoride safe?
A: Fluoride is the only cavity-prevention ingredient recognized by both the American Dental Association and the FDA. The amount and type of fluoride used by The Natural Dentist is regulated by the FDA and, when used as directed will help protect teeth against cavities. Toothpaste that contains fluoride always includes the direction to spit, not swallow after use. Children under 2 and those who are not fully able to spit out the product should not use fluoridated products. If you have questions about the use or safety of products with fluoride, consult your dentist.
Q: Why do you use fluoride in your products?
A: Fluoride is the only cavity-prevention ingredient recognized by both the American Dental Association and the FDA. Fluoride’s cavity-fighting properties make it the most common ingredient that dentists recommend when selecting toothpaste. The fluoride The Natural Dentist uses meets all FDA standards for both safety and effectiveness. For customers who prefer products without fluoride, The Natural Dentist offers the option of toothpaste and rinse formulations that are completely fluoride-free.
Q: Many other mouth rinses contain alcohol. Why are The Natural Dentist's alcohol-free?
A: Alcohol is an astringent ingredient and can cause, or worsen, dry mouth symptoms. Saliva is your natural defense against bacteria and helps to keep your mouth healthy. The Natural Dentist's products promote soothing and help to moisturize your mouth without the drying or burning effects of alcohol.
Q: What is titanium dioxide?
A: Titanium dioxide is a naturally-occurring mineral that is used to impart opacity to The Natural Dentist's toothpaste.

A: The sparkle that you see in The Natural Dentist Cavity Zapper Toothpaste comes from the addition of Mica, a safe and naturally occurring mineral.
Q: What does Natural Flavors mean?
A: When The Natural Dentist refers to “natural flavors” they mean that all the components of the flavor can be found in nature. Unlike chemically-produced artificial flavors, the natural flavors and herbs that The Natural Dentist uses in their products sometimes differ from batch to batch due to seasonal changes, crop variances and other natural environmental differences. This will occasionally cause some variation in the smell or taste of their product from one bottle or tube to the next. The Natural Dentist strives to make the taste of their products as consistent as possible. The Natural Dentist is happy to replace any bottle that you think tastes or smells different or unusual. Please contact The Natural Dentist to return the unused portion of the bottle at their expense.
Q: My child is allergic to strawberries. Is it okay for them to use your Berry Blast toothpaste?
A: Both The Natural Dentist's Cavity Zapper toothpaste in Berry Blast and their Anticavity toothpaste in Orange Zest have a strawberry-based flavoring agent. If you or your child is allergic to strawberries, The Natural Dentist recommends that you use one of their mint varieties or Groovy Grape.
Q: Are The Natural Dentist products gluten free? Dairy free? Soy free? Corn free? What about MSG?
A: The Natural Dentist products are free of any soy, MSG, dairy, wheat or gluten based ingredients. However, the sorbitol in their toothpaste is sourced through the hydrogenation of corn oil. If you have a sensitivity to corn, The Natural Dentist suggests that you ask your doctor before using The Natural Dentist toothpaste.
