SLS is recognized as an irritant and can cause discomfort to people with sensitive or hypersensitive skins. Using a toothpaste containing SLS can cause the delicate and sensitive lining of the mouth to have a reaction. In addition, though research shows that it is not toxic nor a carcinogen, SLS can be absorbed into the bloodstream.

SLS is also toxic to the environment. In its raw state, it is moderately toxic to aquatic life, though the low concentrations found in toothpaste are most likely non-toxic.

However, in response to these findings, more SLS-free toothpastes have come on the market.

SLS doesn't actually play an active role in keeping your teeth clean and healthy, so you can easily choose a different toothpaste without any serious repercussions on your dental health. SLS's main purposes are to provide the rich, foamy toothbrushing experience, bring active ingredients into contact with the teeth for the longest period of time, and help to lift and remove the sticky plaque biofilm from the tooth surface.

Advantages of SLS-free Toothpaste

Using SLS-free toothpaste can help reduce inflammation in people who already have sensitive mouths and gums. If you have gum disease or canker sores, switching to an SLS-free toothpaste can decrease discomfort. SLS-free toothpaste is also a good choice for anyone with sensitive teeth.

Disadvantages of SLS-free Toothpaste

While your teeth get just as clean with SLS-free toothpaste, the absence of SLS means that your teeth might not feel as squeaky clean and fresh. They actually are just as clean, it is just a different feeling because of the lack of SLS in the ingredients list. Because SLS is an excellent foaming agent, SLS-free toothpastes are sometimes weak and low foaming. This means you might have to brush longer or use more toothpaste in order to cover the same surface area.

When searching for an SLS-free toothpaste, you will want to find one that has adequate foaming properties and does not include artificial flavorings. Your teeth need love, care and frequent brushings, so give them the best with an SLS-free toothpaste.
