This premium toothpaste is sold as one tube or as a pack of three and six. It is a tad expensive when compared to other toothpaste brands, but then again it has the much sort-after whitening quality that critic and reviewers agree actually works.
3 Main Ingredients
Baking soda is a naturally occurring mineral that is rated very low in its abrasive capacity. For the longest time, it has been used for teeth brushing on its own, and it has worked well for stain removal and overall prevention of bad breath. The alkaline nature of the powder lifts stains and discoloration without harming the enamel. However, baking soda is not all that effective when used alone.
Even on its own, hydrogen peroxide mixed with water helps eliminate bad breath. It also gets deeper in stain removal, focusing more on the older stains to bring back the color that you probably ruined with caffeine and other colored drinks (or tobacco). Pairing it with baking powder only makes the stain removal property even more intense without destroying the sensitive enamel.
Fluoride is the enamel protector. Regular brushing erodes the enamel, and so it has to be protected. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in food and water. Too much demineralization without remineralization cause tooth decay, which is why toothpaste has to supplement the mineral to cover teeth efficiently.
By combining these three ingredients, Arm & Hammer manage to balance their product entirely. This toothpaste only contains those three ingredients, limiting the products you put in your mouth. For this, the toothpaste serves those with sensitive teeth well.
