If you are looking for canker sore toothpaste, you may want to research brands that do not contain SLS, or sodium laureth sulfate. You can typically find toothpaste without this ingredient in the all-natural section of your local drug or grocery store. Health food stores might also carry brands of toothpaste that contain no SLS. In addition to looking for toothpaste without SLS, you might want to look for a brand that contains 100-percent all-natural ingredients. Many people who suffer from canker sores are able to eliminate the problem when they start using toothpaste that doesn't contain any chemicals.

People who regularly use toothpaste containing SLS and other chemicals frequently experience canker sores. This is typically because they are sensitive to SLS or some other ingredient in the toothpaste. There are lots of people who do not have problems with canker sores and use toothpaste containing these chemicals, but it is likely because they have no sensitivity to the chemicals. Toothpaste is not the only reason you might get canker sores, but it might be a good idea to try a canker sore toothpaste to see if it eliminates the problem. If that doesn't help, it is likely that your canker sores are the result of something else.

The primary purpose of SLS in toothpaste is to make it foam. You might see the bubbles form as you brush your teeth and think it means that your teeth are getting clean, but the bubbles don't really do anything to clean your teeth. The SLS is just an additive that toothpaste manufacturers put in because so many people believe that when toothpaste and other products like soap or shampoo bubble it means they are working. Toothpaste, soap, and shampoo are all capable of working without the addition of bubbles, which means that SLS may actually be an unnecessary ingredient. Most types of canker sore toothpaste will not contain SLS and may additionally help keep you from getting more canker sores.

If you try canker sore toothpaste and still have problems with mouth irritation, you probably need to try other forms of treatment. It is likely that your canker sores are occurring because of something else not related to your toothpaste. Vitamin deficiencies, hormonal changes, and tiny cuts or injuries inside the mouth can all contribute to canker sore formation. If you wear braces or dentures, you might be getting canker sores because you are allergic to metals or some other type of substance they are made of. In the event that canker sore toothpaste does not help you, it would probably be a good idea to see your doctor or dentist about other possible causes.
