FAQs – Super Smile

Absolutely not! We purposely avoided fluoride when it came to our tooth powder. Why you ask? Consider the following:

  • Although some fluoride is “naturally occurring,” most of the fluoride found in our drinking water and added into products is an industrial byproduct of aluminum and fertilizer industries. 
  • Fluoride (negatively) affects many tissues in the body besides teeth. A 500-page review by the National Academies Press concluded that fluoride is an “endocrine disruptor” that can affect bones, the brain, pineal gland, thyroid gland and blood sugar levels. (1)
  • The United States has one of the highest percentage rates of drinking fluoridated water. Take a look at where the US falls on this list.
  • The American Dental Association admitted in a recent position paper that preparing baby foods with fluoridated water may be bad for the development of babies’ teeth. Additionally fluoride can cause fluorosis, a disease that mottles the tooth enamel. Fluorosis is caused by excessive exposure to low concentrations of fluoride. (2)
  • Need more reasons to avoid fluoridation? Here’s 50.

Yes. One can use the full potential of BōKU® Smile when brushing dentures in the mouth. If brushing outside of the mouth, the effervescent effect is lost.
Yes. While BōKU® Smile does not contain desensitizing agents and will not reduce tooth sensitivity, it will not make it worse. In fact, the low abrasion potential is an advantage vs regular toothpaste.
We don’t want to bad mouth anyone…but let’s just say BōKU® Smile is a little ahead of the curve.  Toothpaste typically has artificial sweeteners (to avoid putting sugar in), is ridden with fluoride and has turned into a “chemical soup” of sorts.  BōKU® Smile on the other hand has no artificial sweeteners (or sugar for that matter), contains no fluoride or any other ingredient compromising to your health and is 100% natural.
One 2-ounce bottle has 200 brushings. In case you don’t want to do the math, that’s about a 3-month supply!
It’s easy! Just sprinkle a pea size amount on a moistened toothbrush and brush as usual.
Yes! Busting through tartar and plaque with baking soda and sea salt, BōKU® Smile has been found to be an effective low-abrasive cleaner compared to leading natural and commercial toothpaste brands. In fact, it’s virtually nonabrasive in comparison to traditional toothpastes.
This dazzling tooth powder is made proudly here in the USA.
YES! The making of this product is 100% cruelty free. Feel confident while brushing that you’re cleaning with a 100% KIND product.
Nope! We only use natural essential oils to create that minty zing!
Absolutely not. Sometimes there is confusion between sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and a completely different product called baking powder, which contains aluminum. Only pure USP grade sodium bicarbonate is used in BōKU® Smile, no aluminum here!
BōKU® Smile is a vegan, fluoride free, sodium lauryl sulfate free, 100% natural tooth powder used for brushing your teeth. We took the bad stuff out, left the good stuff in, added in bubbles (natural effervescence) and voila – thus was born BōKU® Smile.
