How to Use Toothpaste Tablets

Toothpaste tablets, often called toothpaste tabs, are a fresh and innovative way to improve your oral care routine. They're small and convenient to bring anytime and anywhere.

Since toothpaste tablets are such a new concept, a lot of people need to familiarize themselves with what is a toothpaste tablet, how you use toothpaste tablets, and if it is worth switching from tube toothpaste.

This article will explain everything you need to know about toothpaste tablets and its components.

What Is a Toothpaste Tablet?

From the name itself, a toothpaste tablet is self-explanatory-- it is a waterless toothpaste pressed into a compact tablet.

These toothpaste tabs are designed to be a more eco-friendly and convenient alternative to toothpaste in tubes.

Every year, around 20 billion toothpaste tubes are produced, and most of these tubes end up in major landfills.

Toothpaste tablets are usually sold in glass jars or recyclable bottles.

They are easy to carry for people who are always on the go and mess-free– no chance of paste spilling from tubes or sachets.

So, how do you use these toothpaste pills?

How to Use Toothpaste Tablets

Using toothpaste tablets is a simple process:

  1. Pop one tablet in your mouth - one tablet is all that you need. Each tablet is perfectly sized and dosed, just enough amount that you need in one brush 

  2. Chew it - chew the tablet until it dissolves in your mouth and forms a paste by mixing it with your saliva.
  3. Grab your toothbrush - ensure it is wet by running it in water for a second or dipping it in a glass of water

  4. Brush your teeth as you regularly do - no unnecessary routines and mess-free!
    Quick and easy!

What are toothpaste tablets made of?

Most recent toothpaste tablets focus on more natural ingredients than mass-produced tube toothpaste.

First, they do not contain water like liquid toothpaste, meaning they do not need chemical preservatives or parabens that prevent the growth of microorganisms.

Some toothpaste tablets use more biocompatible alternatives to fluoride, such as nano-hydroxyapatite, also called nHA.

What is nano-hydroxyapatite?

Nano-hydroxyapatite is a synthetic version of the main component of enamel that helps with the remineralization of teeth called hydroxyapatite.

With nano-hydroxyapatite, the teeth restore from within as it becomes a mineral reinforcement by itself while reducing caries incidence.

Debates on whether nano-hydroxyapatite is better than fluoride have been going on for years, but each ingredient has its own pros and cons.

Nano hydroxyapatite toothpaste tablets also contain organic ingredients such as organic coconut oil, British peppermint oil, and licorice root, making them safe for kids and pregnant women. 

According to studies conducted around the world including Sangi Co. LTD’s, since hydroxyapatite is an organic material that already exists within our bodies, it is a safer alternative to fluoride that causes dental fluorosis and can be toxic if ingested in large amounts.

What Are the Benefits of Toothpaste Tablets?

  1. Eco-friendly packaging - usually packed in reusable and refillable jars or tin containers, the toothpaste tabs packaging help lessen the plastic users consume. 
  2. Easy to carry and travel-friendly - whether packing for a vacation, urgent work, or even for a regular day outside, toothpaste tablets are incredibly convenient to carry around. They're small, compact, and you do not have to worry about possible spills. Additionally, different airlines have limits on how much liquid you can bring with your hand-carry baggage. By switching the liquid toothpaste to tablets, you can carry more items, such as lotions, perfume, and facial cleansers.
  3. Natural ingredients - with no harsh abrasives, artificial sweeteners, and no chemical preservatives, toothpaste tablets aren't just friendly for the environment but also for every single user. It's safe for kids, pregnant women, and other people with sensitivity to fluoride.
  4. Longer shelf life - since these toothpaste tabs are waterless, they can be stored longer without needing chemical preservatives such as paraben to prevent microorganism growth.
