Why You Should Brush Your Teeth With Soap Instead Of Toothpaste

Soap for Teeth, Tooth Soap - Opa Toothbar

I started brushing my teeth with soap for teeth almost five years ago after learning about the harmful, long-lasting health effects of fluoride. Using soap on my teeth leaves my teeth smooth, shiny and my breath fresh.

When I wake up in the morning, I do so with clean-smelling breath because of brushing with soap the night before. Not only do I use it, but so do my young children and husband with amazing results.

In the book “The Perfect Prescription for Your Teeth” Karen Van Cleef discusses the chemical make up of fluoride, coming to the conclusion that “fluoride is a severe biological poison.”

Dr. Judd, a chemist and extensive researcher, in his book Good Teeth Birth to Death, states, “To avoid fluoride is to prevent more than 114 ailments….all the way from cancer to headaches.”

And he has the research to prove it. Both Van Cleef and Judd vehemently warn about the negative effects of fluoride and flat-out and confidently show their readers that fluoride does not prevent tooth decay but instead promotes tooth decay. Even the EPA is now issuing warnings about fluoride!

So, that really got me thinking about what I had been brushing my teeth with for the past thirty years. I religiously brushed with a fluoridated toothpaste and even occasionally rinsed with a fluoridated mouthwash, yet I did accumulate cavities over the years and my breath usually felt stale within an hour of brushing.

With this in mind, it’s worth considering what you and your children are placing in your mouth on a daily basis.

So I bought a tube of “Natural” toothpaste at my local market thinking I was on the way to a healthier mouth and fresher breath. I was let down after brushing with that “natural” toothpaste because my mouth didn’t feel clean at all.

After doing more research, I found out the reason why.


Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D., Chemist, Researcher for 18 years and Professor of Chemistry for 33 yrs explains how brushing teeth with toothpaste takes 27 rinses to rinse off from teeth due to the added glycerin where as bar soap (not liquid soap) takes only a couple rinses as Dr. Judd says to use.

Glycerin is an additive in toothpaste that coats your teeth causing them not to re-enamelize naturally. It needs to be avoided if you want a clean, healthy mouth. So, I threw away my “natural” toothpaste.

I then looked for a soap that was specifically made for teeth, Dr. recommended and was easy to use. Something that not only tasted better but also helped with inflammation, infections/gingivitis and other issues that derive from your mouth.

Dr. sHEALy, respected world-wide for his innovative and successful rehabilitation approach in over 30,000 patients, has long prescribed brushing teeth with Opa Tooth Soap, soap for teeth, rather than toothpaste. The reason, according to Shealy, is bar soap prevents gingivitis caused by bacteria lodged in the gum pockets.

“There is a better way to brush your teeth, it is with Opa (O-P-A) Toothbar. It’s the finest thing in the world to brush your teeth. I like the turmeric; the turmeric has a great deal of extra antioxidants effects but there are other flavors. Far better, far less expensive than toothpaste and cleans your teeth; cleans, cleans, cleans your teeth better than any toothpaste in the world- Opa Toothbar.”†

“I can now 5 star rate Opa Toothbar. It’s the best ever. No need for any mouth wash or any other tooth cleanser!”†

Opa Toothbar works GREAT and it last a super long time, my mouth has never been cleaner, I always have that “just-left-the-dentist-office” clean feeling and I literally wake up in the morning with fresh breath. That never happened until I started brushing with the Opa Toothbar.

      According to experts brushing with bar soap promotes healthy teeth and gums. Dr Judd states that gums are disinfected by brushing with bar soap. Bacteria and viruses are promptly destroyed. Dr Gerard Judd and Dr Norm Shealy state that soap prevents gingivitis caused by bacteria which is lodged in the gum pockets. The Opa Toothbar is a tooth bar soap that has additional ingredients that are known for promoting dental health. “We can’t say it heals, but you can.”

    Wow so cool, thank you for this article! I had a few questions (bare with me haha). I was going to do the baking soda natural toothpaste but I have a few sensitive spots on my right side so I figure I should only do that every two weeks (with coconut oil and Himalayan salt). I am thinking about trying the soap route but I wanted to ask, have you had any cavities since using soap? Are you afraid your teeth will worsen without normal toothpaste? I want to make the switch but am unsure how. My kid never had cavities, I am a faithful brusher myself and she has white teeth..however she recently started having to cavities! The dentist said she has no plaque and very weird she has them on the side in the back molars because its a smooth spot…I think the toothpaste is messing with her little teeth. If I brushed her teeth with soap I am afraid she will eat it or hate it haha, anything to do for children? Thank you!

      Hello, and thank you for your comment/ concern regarding the tooth soap bar. When my world was opened up to the harsh reality of what toothpastes really contain, the Opa Toothbar was born. I truly believe that toothpastes coat your teeth which can cause all sorts of issues: inability to re-enamelize, tooth sensitivity, cavities and many other health issues that derive from oral hygiene problems. I have never been HAPPIER since ditching toothpaste and switching to the Opa Toothbar soap. I haven’t used toothpaste since 2011 and have yet to receive a cavity. Of course everyone is different and I not saying to avoid the dentist chair. I just know the remarkable results I’ve experienced since making the switch. We hear from parents that since switching to the Opa Toothbar, children actually look forward to brushing their teeth. With natural, organic and wild-harvested ingredients Opa Toothbars offer a health-conscious option to brushing your teeth with instead of coating your teeth with toothpaste, brush them with the cleansing power of Opa Toothbar. We don’t encourage you to eat the Opa Soap, but fortunately if you swallow some you won’t have to call the poison control center as you would with other chemical laden toothpastes. Don’t take our word for it, try it yourself and you’ll see what you and your family has been missing.
