Tom's of Maine Toothpastes are Fabulous, but ALL of Their Oral Care is Amazing!

Press Samples (Unafilliated Links)

I have exclusively used Tom's of Maine toothpaste for as many years as I can remember, but had never tried their floss, mouthwash, or toothbrushes until recently. I am pleased to say that I love all of their new-to-me oral hygiene products-- they are high quality and effective- yet gentle enough to use on sensitive teeth.

Botanically Bright Peppermint Whitening Toothpaste ($5.99 for a 4.7 oz. tube): This is an effective whitening toothpaste that leaves your teeth feeling so fresh and clean without feeling stripped. It has a bright peppermint taste that lingers, and it is fluoride-free for those who avoid added fluoride in their toothpaste. 

Now you can have an SLS-free whitening toothpaste you love. Brushing with new Tom’s of Maine Botanically Bright™gives your mouth a foamy, clean feeling. Plus, it tastes great and helps whiten your teeth by removing surface stains during brushing. Ingredients are 100% derived from nature. Available in Spearmint with Aloe & Chamomile and Peppermint with Xylitol and Propolis.

Ingredients: Water, sorbitol, hydrated silica, glycerin, xylitol, lauryl glucoside, sodium cocoyl glutamate, natural flavor*, xanthan gum, titanium dioxide, carrageenan, Stevia rebaudiana extract, propolis extract. *Peppermint oil and other natural flavor.

Clean Mint Simply White Fluoride Toothpaste ($4.99 for a 4.7 oz. tube): I have gone through many tubes of this minty fresh toothpaste, and will no doubt go through many more. It makes my teeth feel very clean, but never stripped-- which is important because my teeth tend to be a touch sensitive at times. This particular toothpaste does contain fluoride, and if that is problematic for you there are many options from Tom's of Maine that are fluoride-free. 

The key to our effective formula is naturally sourced silicas, derived from sand to improve cleaning and to whiten without bleaching ingredients by removing surface stains. Simply White toothpaste helps to restore the natural whiteness of your teeth. Try Simply White and bring back the natural beauty of your smile. 

Ingredients: Sodium fluoride, hydrated silica, water, sorbitol, glycerin, xylitol, sodium lauryl sulfate, natural flavors, xanthan gum, titanium dioxide, carrageenan, sodium hydroxide.

Gingermint Baking Soda with Propolis and Myrrh Toothpaste ($4.99 for a 4 oz. tube): If you prefer flavors other than the typical mint variants, then Gingermint is a very pleasant alternative, indeed! The foreground taste is definitely that of ginger, but then it is slightly offset by mint-- it is both unusual and pleasant to use. It leaves my teeth feeling fresh and clean, but unstripped. This is a fluoride-free toothpaste.

Back by popular demand, Propolis & Myrrh Gingermint Baking Soda is a unique flavor experience you are sure to enjoy. You will experience the clean, fresh feeling of baking soda, the cooling sweetness of pure peppermint and the bright, exotic flavor of fresh ginger – each time you brush. Herbal extracts of propolis and myrrh promote a naturally clean, healthy-mouth feeling. We hope you love it!

Ingredients: Calcium carbonate, Water, Glycerin, Sodium bicarbonate, Xylitol, Sodium lauryl sulfate, Natural flavor (Ginger oil and other natural flavor), Carrageenan, Stevia Rebaudiana extract, Commiphora myrrha (myrrh) resin, Propolis Extract.

Naturally Clean Toothbrush: Soft (Blue) ($3.99): I love this toothbrush for its efficacy, and because it is soft and gentle. I also am thrilled that it is made with a recyclable plant-based handle that is petroleum-free. The price is right, and the product is fantastic-- there will be many more of these toothbrushes in my future!

From the #1 natural oral care brand comes the toothbrush that’s good for your smile and your world. The NEW Tom's of Maine Naturally Clean toothbrush has a recyclable plant-based handle that is made from renewable castor oil plants instead of petroleum and is recyclable through our TerraCycle® collection program. An angled neck and dye-free, multi-height bristles are precisely designed for effective cleaning. And freedom from BPA and artificial colors means you're making a good choice for you and your family.

Spearmint Antiplaque Flat Floss ($2.99): I have always preferred mint flavored flat floss, but Tom's of Maine makes the best one that I have used to date, and in my estimation has outdone the competition. This tasty Spearmint Antiplaque Flat Floss is gentle on my gums as it effortlessly glides through my teeth. If you avoid flossing because you find it unpleasant- then this is the floss to change your mind.

Our Natural Antiplaque Flat Floss is made of many strong nylon filaments woven together to prevent snapping or fraying. Prepared with a unique combination of natural waxes, our floss glides smoothly between teeth and is gentle on gums, its flat shape and broader surface let you clean each tooth efficiently and thoroughly. 

Ingredients: Beeswax, carnauba wax, spearmint oil, jojoba wax, acacia, myrrh, propolis.

Cool Mountain Mint Wicked Fresh! Mouthwash ($4.99 for 16 oz.): I don't generally use mouthwash, but I really love the taste of this one. I find that mainstream mouthwashes taste unpleasantly medicinal, and therefore I tend to avoid them. Cool Mountain Mint Wicked Fresh! Mouthwash is refreshing and pleasant tasting, and does not have that awful chemical-laden medicinal taste. I like to use this after I floss as a pre-brushing cleanse, and that combination makes my teeth and gums look and feel wonderful. I highly recommend trying it! This mouthwash leaves your breath so refreshed!

Tom's of Maine's great tasting Wicked Fresh!™ Mouthwash helps stop bad breath without the burn. Our refreshing mint flavors leave your whole mouth feeling clean from a brand you trust and never tested on animals.

Ingredients: Water, glycerin, sorbitol, aloe vera leaf juice (organic), propanediol (vegetable source), natural flavors, benzoic acid (natural), zinc chloride, menthol.

Overall assessment: If you haven't tried Tom's of Maine for their oral care range of products- you should! I have used their line for years, and these products offer even more reasons to love Tom's of Maine. Tom's of Maine is a Cruelty-Free company.

  1. It's good to know the toothpaste isn't hard on your teeth. I have sensitive teeth and have been using Sensodyne for years. I might give Tom's a try next time.

    1. I used Sensodyne for years too! I have had no sensitivity with the toothpastes that I use from Tom's of Maine. You might want to start out with their toothpastes for sensitive teeth- I have found them quite gentle:
