Personally, I hate toothpaste and that cheesy sickening minty/whatevery taste it leaves in your mouth afterwards. I can deal with it during the day, but at night before bed I really resent doing it, as I wake up with that shitty taste in my mouth.

Now I've recently looked up a 3:1 ratio of baking soda to salt, of which there are several testimonials around teh webz. I've also taken to gargling with warm salt water, which is a lot more pleasant than Listerine (and cheaper too) - my doctor recommended it to me when I saw him last.

Has anyone tried these or other alternatives to toothpaste? If so, are they any good/recommended? Or am I just being a gigantic hippy?

I do stuff like that once in a while but not regularly. Makes me feel all natural and stuff but I trust the dentistry community more than salt.

Tooth decay is an excellent alternative to toothpaste.


But seriously, you could always get a better tasting toothpaste.


I really like the flavor of that one. It's minty, but in a different way. Also,

Crest Whitening Expressions are pretty tasty too.



If you hate mint in all its forms, you can always use children's toothpaste, which often comes in strawberry or something.

Doctor Bronner's can be used as a toothpaste. Also, it's made from hemp oil and stuff, so it works for your hippie thing too. It will taste like crap however.

flossing is what really cleans your teeth. if you floss + use the 3:1 ratio it'll be just about as effective as regular toothpaste
