Please do not buy this!!! I bought it thinking it would be a good tooth paste but within a couple weeks I had major problems. At first I thought I had a sore throat and then the back of my tongue hurt as well. The next day my lower gums were red and irritated. I didnt know what the problem was and was worried I had thrush or something. My tongue and cheeks had white sores which I now realize were spots where my skin was eaten off. I finally started searching this tooth paste online once my husband mentioned it was possibly the cause. There are many warnings online about this stuff. I haven't been eating much cause my mouth is so raw and sore. Please take this poison off the market!!!
