In a slight detour from our usual undertaking, today’s episode is a somewhat negative review of a patented anti-tartar toothpaste that has been brought to Dr. B’s attention (thank you, Leonard, for the question). After giving a brief background on TartarEnd®, Dr. B lays out the claims of the product and how they measure up to the truth, as well as why the information on its website seems too good to believe. We discuss how to properly check the ingredient list of a product, what you’ll find in TartarEnd® and, more importantly, what’s missing, and the concerns that Dr. B has about this anti-tartar toothpaste. We end with learning about the dangers of using any patented toothpaste and why you should never use a product that hasn’t been backed by scientific studies.
If you are a representative of TartarEnd® and would like to reach out, we welcome you to do so either via our website, askthedentist.com, or through any of our social media channels.
