Today on The Holistic Dentistry Show, Dr. Sanda is charting an important path as we venture into the body to learn the top five toxins in oral care products. Dr. Sanda shares important information to help guide better oral care decisions and provides watchouts that could disrupt your body’s natural ability to remove bad bacteria. Grab your nearest toothpaste and mouthwash and gather aboard. Let’s begin!

As our host and expert in the field of all things holistic dentistry, Dr. Sanda steers us to the first step in finding healthier oral care alternatives. To start, read the label! From there, we set out on our oral expedition where Dr. Sanda gets up close and personal with the five toxic ingredients in toothpaste and mouthwashes. We learn about disturbing incidents involving each toxin and how they harm the body. (Be sure to watch out for CAPB and SLS — they’re double the trouble when it comes to your microbiome!)

If you need tips for creating a healthier mouth, stay until the end to hear the top ways to increase the health and longevity of it. Plus, Dr. Sanda lets us in on why she created Orsana: to provide natural oral care ingredients that actually nurture the mouth or microbiome. This expedition has completed its mission… but Holistic Dentisty’s mission is here to stay.

This episode isn't just about toothpaste and mouthwash; it’s about how to avoid the top toxic chemicals in oral care — and choose healthier alternatives instead!
