Do you like going to the dentist? I certainly do not. Of course when the pain becomes too much to bear then I will be there in an instant! I’ve been spending quite some time with the hygenist over the last few months, sorting out my gums. I’ve learnt a lot about various mouth washes and toothpastes and tooth gels, tooth brushes and floss and mini-brushes, and now have quite a collection in my bathroom.
Have you heard about the controversy surrounding fluoride in our toothpaste. Some say it is very bad for you, while others say it is good for you, after all it is also added to our water supply (depending on where you live). I asked my hygenist the question on fluoride, and whether I should avoid it in my toothpaste. My hygenist told me that the amount of fluoride contained in toothpaste is so small and insignificant that it cannot do you any damage, but it is good for your teeth, and she also said that toothpaste is not meant to be ingested. You should not be eating toothpaste and therefore you should not be affected by the fluoride. She did however recommend using the fluoride free tooth gel, but together with the regular fluoride toothpaste. So her advice to me was to use both, so for example, the fluoride free tooth gel in the morning (and/or at lunch time) and then the fluoride toothpaste at night time.
I have been using the toothgel from Forever Living Products. The Forever Bright Tooth Gel from Forever Living contains Aloe Vera & Propolis (a natural antibiotic from the Beehive), this is a non-abrasive tooth gel. It does not contain fluoride and is a non abrasive formula to clean, nourish, strengthen and protect your teeth and gums. This is especially good for anyone (like myself) prone to mouth ulcers, gingivitis and bleeding or receding gums or sensitive teeth.

My friend introduced me to these products earlier this year and I have been thoroughly enjoying using them.
The great thing about Forever Living Products is that they offer you a free 60 day money back guarantee. So you are safe in the knowledge that if, after you have used the toothgel within the 60 days, you then decide you do not like the product, you can return the empty product for a full refund. The tooth gel is packaged and delivered from the head office in your chosen country (currently in over 155 countries worldwide) and if ordered before 1pm will usually be delivered to you by courier the next day. The service is brilliant, very efficient.
