Years ago if someone had told me that you can be allergic to certain toothpastes, I would have told them that they were crazy. Unfortunately, I had that experience first-hand. It took me awhile to realize that my toothpaste was the culprit. I heard that some people are allergic to the cinnamon flavor in toothpaste, but it seems like even when my toothpaste had no cinnamon, it still affected me.
After trying a variety of brands, I decided to try a natural organic toothpaste. Since I’ve started using it, I’ve not experienced any allergic side effects. This type of toothpaste contain a combination of natural and organic ingredients. These are mild and less likely to trigger an allergic reaction. The essential oils in this toothpaste has more benefits than one. If you have swollen gum or gum disease, this is a natural product that you should try.
I am more and more convinced that using natural products or home remedies is the way to go. They are more healthier and have few or no side effects at all. Going to the dentist is great to ensure that your teeth and gum are healthy and in good shape, but using a natural toothpaste can lessen the trips to the dentist.
If you are feeling discomfort such as itching, hives or if your mouth feel stiff and swollen, this may mean that you have an allergic reaction to the toothpaste you are using. The longer you keep using it, the worse it’s going to get. It is a very painful feeling, and can take a few days to heal. After healing you can expect to moisturize the side of your mouth to get rid of the dried up skin or in some severe cases, eliminate scars. Keep in mind that each person may have different symptoms.
Toothpaste allergy may take years to eventually affect you, so even if you are not affected at this moment, it won’t hurt to start using a toothpaste that contain natural ingredients. The goal is to find one that works best for you.
