If you want whiter teeth, please see your dentist to discuss your candidacy and options. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Possibly: No one does research giving herbs during pregnancy so we don't know for sure. It seems safe to use in cooking but taking medicinal amounts may cause bleeding or stimulate uterine contractions. I advise caution with all herbs in the first trimester.

It is far more important to worry about proper brushing technique. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Sounds yummy!: Use whatever toothpaste you want that makes brushing easy for you. People are sensitive to taste, good taste will promote good brushing habits. Honestly, it is not the toothpaste that does the work, it is the mechanical debriding of the toothbrush that does all of the work. Toothpaste is optional, it is a vehicle for Fluoride and to freshen breath and make it taste good to brush. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
