Fluoride-free toothpaste alternatives

Are you looking to switch to a more holistic toothpaste? Many of our patients have expressed interest in a fluoride-free toothpaste alternative, we hear you. There are many options currently on the market that can leave patients overwhelmed and unsure of what to choose.  We recommend ClōSYS. ClōSYS is fluoride-free, dye-free, sulfate-free, triclosan-free, and gluten-free.  It also is free of SLS which is a mouth irritant.


Another option is a simple, all-natural, DIY toothpaste consisting of only 2 ingredients.

Coconut oil is naturally:

  • antibacterial
  • antimicrobial
  • antifungal

Studies have shown that coconut oils destroy bacteria that cause tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Baking soda aids in:

  • Cleaning
  • Whitening
  • Restoration of PH balance


2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp baking soda

Combine ingredients to make a paste. Use a small amount of “paste” on your toothbrush.  Use as you normally would in your oral hygiene routine. Brush in quadrants at an angle on the tooth and gumline. Spit out excess and do not rinse and remember to floss.

Keep in mind: paste will melt in the mouth or hands but solidify in cool temperatures.
