View Full Version : Dr Bronner's Soap & Teeth
11-20-2007, 08:37 AM
I started using Dr Bronnerís peppermint magic soap last week to brush my teeth. I use 1-2 drops, then moisten my toothbrush bristles. My teeth feel super smooth, but my inner lips are hurting. I have 2 ulcers (mouth sores) on my upper lip and my lower lip feels rough and irritated. Has anyone used Dr Bronnerís soap as toothpaste and experienced anything like this? I donít want to go back to using standard toothpaste b/c Iím trying to fill in a chipped tooth. But I wonder if I'm doing more harm using this in my mouth.

I've had similar reaction to the dr. bronners chapstick. When I put it on I always get a bit above my lip line. This as well as the top /outer edge of my lips I got very small blister that itched like crazy. The best I can describe them is like tiny coldsores, but mine didn't ooze. Just extremely itchy and then hurt. After the first time, (it took about two to three weeks for it to completely heal), I tried the chapstick and again and same thing happened. I called the company and told them, of course they weren't concerned in the least and said that they never had heard of it before. The only thing that was different from what I had used prior was hemp oil, I believe. I do have an issue with wheat germ oil, it causes blister's like coldsores but much worse all over my face and is very uncomfortable and painful. My sister makes my chapstick and that is all I ever use.

I've read other posts about some kind of tooth soap that seemed to do a good job for people--don't think it was Dr Bronners, though. Maybe do a banana search. Have not tried the product yet as I'm doing oil pulling daily and using up the last of my CoQ10 toothpaste. Can highly recommend the oil pulling, though. Have a small chip in one of my teeth and am watching to see if it will be filling in. Thus far may mouth has felt a lot better and my teeth are getting whiter. Wish I had discovered this 20 yrs ago.

Dr Bronner's is one of the best for teeth, but you should really use the baby/mild one. The others don't taste better. I actually thought they were worse. The mild one is good for many things, without being irritating. It's way cheaper than Tooth Soap & with a low amount of glycerin.
