Some people are allergic to the common ingredients found in most toothpastes. They struggle to find an adequate product to suit their needs. Others have a sensitivity to these ingredients which makes daily brushing an unpleasant experience. Luckily, there is a toothpaste designed with these folks in mind.
Closys Fluoride Toothpaste is free of many chemicals which cause irritation and allergic reactions. If you suffer from any problem resulting in a sensitive mouth, this toothpaste is for you. From canker sores to thin enamel, this product is designed to cater to those with extra dental healthcare needs.
Who It Can Help
Closys can provide relief for a wide range of particular and unique dental issues.
The following issues can be alleviated by Closys Toothpaste:
- Sulfate free: Most toothpastes contain sulfates but not this one! Sulfates also can cause canker and mouth sores so if you’re prone to them, sulfates might be the cause. An extra bonus if you’re already allergic to the ingredient!
- Oral pH: An unbalanced pH leads to more bacterial growth. Closys is almost pH neutral so if you’re mouth is prone to germ growth, you will have a healthier, cleaner mouth
- Sensitive teeth: The toothpaste has a gentle, low abrasion formula so you don’t have to worry about enamel damage or mouth pain resulting from a harsh toothpaste.
- Triclosan free: Triclosan can exacerbate other allergies and some even get allergic reactions to the ingredient itself.
Other features include a non-irritating formula and a strong anti-cavity fluoride compound.
Basically, Closys is designed for those with overly sensitive mouths whether that be because of allergies, canker sores or plaque buildup. It won’t be harsh on your teeth or your gums.
What It’s Like
Out of the box, Closys Toothpaste comes in a standard tube with a nice, wide flip cap. Most toothpastes have those small, annoyingly difficult screw tops but the Closys toothpaste has a really user-friendly cap.
Out of the tube, it is thin and fairly runny. It’s quite the opposite of the usual gloopy, thick toothpastes out on the market.
This is probably due to the lack of sodium laureth sulfate (SLS) in the toothpaste. This is the foaming agent found in many products. As a result, the toothpaste hardly foams up at all during normal brushing. More on that later.
True to its purpose as a sensitive toothpaste, the paste’s taste is quite mild. The mint flavor does not come off strong at all. Still, the toothpaste’s formula works to prevent bad breath so it does the job.
Also, the toothpaste does not burn at all. Seriously, it one of the gentlest toothpastes I (and many others) have ever used. Sometimes it feels like you’re barely even brushing with a toothpaste at all!
While the Closys won’t work any miracles, it is certainly an effective toothpaste. It will help alleviate many dental problems other toothpastes can’t. Still, it’s not a totally perfect product.
The consequence of not containing SLS is that it doesn’t foam hardly at all. This is really the only glaring problem I could find with the product. Some users found this to be a serious issue. One reported that it’s like they were just “brushing with water.”
I won’t disagree with these folks. It doesn’t really foam, and it does not feel like a normal toothpaste. At first, this was kinda discomforting to me. I was worried that the product was not working as intended.
The toothpaste, however, is still just as effective with or without foam! The formula and active ingredients work just as well without SLS. It might not feel like it’s working but it really does.
Closys Toothpaste Wrap Up
Closys Fluoride Toothpaste is an excellent toothpaste for those who need to be more careful with their choice of dental health care ingredients. It’s free of many allergens, chemicals and irritants that cause a wide array of annoyances for many people. Even if you don’t have a sensitive mouth, Closys can be a great choice for those looking for an alternative to the usual mass market brands.
Again, the only negative as I see it is the real lack of foaming action from the toothpaste. It does not appear to be working as it should but it still does. This just takes some time getting used to.
You won’t need to worried anymore about your toothpaste ingredients, and you will have a much more gentle, easy brushing experience with Closys Fluoride Toothpaste.
