In addition to toothpastes containing fluoride, Toms of Maine also offers fluoride-free teeth cleaners for customers who may prefer to brush their teeth without it. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral in water. It may be added to foods and supplements because it has been shown to help prevent cavities. However, some people may be allergic to fluoride or may already be getting sufficient amounts of the mineral through other sources. Fluoride-free paste is for those who choose not to or who do not need additional intake. Toms offers flavors such as strawberry, fennel, peppermint, and cinnamint, a combination of cinnamon and mint.What is Toms of Maine Rapid Relief Sensitive Natural Toothpaste?
This product is meant for those who have sensitive teeth and may experience discomfort while brushing each day. By using a patented combination of arginine and calcium carbonate, Rapid Relief seals pain by blocking pathways to sensitive nerves. Typically, a sensitive paste serves only to numb the pain. When Rapid Relief is directly applied to a sensitive tooth area and gently massaged for one minute, users should feel immediate relief. Just like other Toms of Maine products, Rapid Relief Sensitive Toothpaste has no artificial preservatives, colors, or sweeteners, and it is not tested on animals.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Toms of Maine.
