Toothpaste Tablets – Denttabs
Available in the following:
- Approx 180 tablets in reusable glass jar & metal lid (3 months Supply)
- Approx 180 tablets in paper bag (refill) (3 months Supply)
One of the best possible dental care using the least amount of chemical ingredients, Denttabs are a fantastic way to clean your teeth with minimal packaging and unnecessary waste.
Denttabs are free from preservatives, germ-inhibiting substances, binders and free from aluminum and nanoparticles.
Denttabs work best with a soft bristle manual toothbrush and we do not recommend using Denttabs with an electric toothbrush over long periods of time.
Key Ingredients (full list in ingredients tab):
Sodium fluoride (sodium fluoride) – ‘natural’ only in Denttabs with fluoride! It is used for the remineralization of the enamel and can especially help with sensitive tooth necks, but also with incipient caries (repeated exposure to bacteria). Because Denttabs are “dry”, it only develops its full effect with the application.
Silica (silica) – Serves as a cleaning agent and helps to remove soft plaque.
Microcellulose fibers (microcrystalline cellulose) polishes your teeth and in between, helping to prevent plaque and buildup of particles on the tooth and around the tooth.
Sodium bicarbonate , better known as ” sodium bicarbonate “, together with Ascorbic Acid or Citric Acid, adjusts the pH of the tablet.
We have the tablets available in either a reusable glass jar or plastic-free paper bags (refill).
The glass jar does have plastic in the top of the lid, however this jar is for reusing and storing your Denttabs.
The paper bag refills come completely plastic-free and secured with biodegradable paper tape. The paper bags are recyclable and the tablets can be emptied into one of our Denttabs jar or one of your own.
*Please Note the refill bags are intended for transport only – please transfer to an airtight container as soon as possible.

How To Use
- Chew on a Denttab toothpaste tablet until it turns creamy.
You may have to get used to this at the beginning. It is worthwhile, however, because the mixing with saliva is crucial for the high remineralization.
- Brush your teeth with a wet toothbrush as usual.
Ideally, use a soft bristled toothbrush.
- Take a few minutes and then rinse, or spit out excess and don’t rinse.
Dentists do recommend not to rinse after brushing to allowing the fluoride to continue working but if you prefer to rinse then we recommend you leaving the toothpaste for a few moments to give it the time it needs.
Are Denttabs Suitable For Kids?
Although Denttabs should be okay for older children, I would always recommend just double checking with your dentist before use. As Denttabs do contain the equivalent amount of fluoride as 1g of adult liquid toothpaste, they may not be suitable for young children who haven’t used adult toothpaste before.
Why Is It Not Recommended To Use Electric Toothbrushes With Denttabs?
It is recommended to use a soft bristled toothbrush when using Denttabs, the manufacturer has stated that Denttabs work better with manual toothbrushes as electric brushes may not be as effective due to the shape, speed and hardness of the toothbrush head/bristles.
Denttabs toothpaste tablets consist of very few, especially selected ingredients:
Microcellulose fibers (microcrystalline cellulose) – Also known as refined wood pulp, a naturally occurring polymer that is fully biodegradable. This polishes your teeth and in between, helping to prevent plaque and buildup of particles on the tooth and around the tooth.
Sodium bicarbonate – Also known as ” bicarbonate of soda “, together with Ascorbic Acid or Citric Acid, adjusts the pH of the tablet.
Silica (silica) serves as a cleaning agent and helps to remove any soft plaque.
Amisoft (Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate) is a surfactant (soap) that combines the dissolved proteins and fats with water to flush them out while rinsing. In AMISOFT glutamic acid is esterified with coconut fatty acids. In this chemical process, two naturally occurring substances (coconut fatty acids and glutamic acid) are combined, losing their original properties. “Glutamate” should not be confused with the flavor enhancers used in the food industry – Denttabs are glutamate and gluten free.
And here again exactly from our chemist:
“Glutamic acid is an amino acid found in relatively large quantities in fish, meat and plants, but the amino acid does not occur in isolation, but almost exclusively in bound form in proteins DENTTABS does not use free glutamic acid, but a surfactant called sodium lauroyl gutamatate, which binds glutamic acid to a fatty acid, both derived from plant sources, which removes the physiological effects of the free acid DENTTABS tablet be swallowed, the glutamic acid would not be absorbed in the intestine but undigested excreted.”
Magnesium Stearate (Magnesium Stearate) is a herbal adjuvant used in tablet manufacturing.
Natural (mint) aroma , together with stevia and menthol, provide a pleasant feeling of freshness and a “cool” and fresh breath.
Menthol , together with stevia and the mint aroma, provides the pleasant “freshness afterwards”.
Xanthan gum is a natural thickener and gelling agent and provides the pleasant creaminess after chewing Denttabs Toothpaste tablets.
Stevia (Stevioside) is a sweet-tasting plant that, together with the aroma and the menthol, provides the good taste.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) or from March 2015 citric acid ( citric acid ) regulates the pH value together with sodium bicarbonate ( see above ) and stimulates the salivation. The increased salivation causes a faster remineralization of the tooth surfaces.
Sodium fluoride (sodium fluoride) – ‘natural’ only in Denttabs with fluoride! It is used for the remineralisation of the enamel and can especially help with sensitive tooth necks, but also with incipient caries. Because Denttabs are “dry”, it only develops its full effect with the application.
Eugenol is part of the natural mint flavor.
DENTTABS are free from preservatives, germ-inhibiting substances, binders and contain neither aluminum nor nanoparticles.
Fluoride per tablet – 1.450ppm = 0,15%.
Weight of one tablet is – 1/3 Gram.
The average toothpaste contains 1350-1500ppm of fluoride. Each Denttab has roughly about the same amount of fluoride as 1g of your typical adult toothpaste.
However, because conventional toothpaste consists of 50% water, the free fluoride ions react with other materials in the toothpaste. There was study in the late 90’s study stated that the quantity of available fluoride ions actually contained in tooth paste, had sunk to approximately 80% after only 4 months.
Denttabs are manufactured dry, the first contact with humidity happens exactly when you chew on them in your mouth and mix it with saliva. Advantages to this are the sodium fluoride disintegrates only in the mouth. Thus the quantity of fluoride ions, which was contained in the tablet originally, is available 100% without any loss. The fluoride ions are in the saliva, right where they are supposed to be, this is a crucial part of remineralisation. With the toothbrush you then distribute the Denttabs mixture and take the fluoride ions exactly where they need to be and work: directly on your teeth.
Denttabs also have a low abrasion value, approx 30 RDA.
There is an ongoing debate whether fluoride is good or bad for you and I encourage you to read more on this widely researched topic and make your own choice. I really do think it is a matter of personal preference.
