Why You Should Brush Your Teeth With Soap Instead Of Toothpaste

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.

Who is Dr. Norm sHEALy:

Norman Shealy is one of the world’s leading experts in pain & depression management. He was the first physician to specialize in the resolution of chronic pain. A pioneer in developing safe and effective treatments such as Biogenics, he founded, in 1971, the first comprehensive pain and stress management facility in the country, the Shealy Institute, respected world-wide for its innovative and successful rehabilitation approaches in over 30,000 patients.

Why you should avoid fluoride:

“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 , who happens to be in his eighties with his own, original, healthy, birth-given teeth, 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!

What about “Natural” Toothpaste:

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 synthetic glycerin also known as (PG-propylene glycol) where as bar soap(Don’t use liquid, it supposedly does not work as well) takes only a couple rinses as Dr. Judd says to use. For this reason any toothpaste should be avoided at all costs.

So my husband and I took his advice and started brushing our teeth with soap almost five years ago. Within days we noticed a difference! Weeks later we could never go back to icky toothpaste. Using the Opa Toothbar leaves my teeth smooth, shiny and my breath fresh.

      O’pa Toothbar™ says:
      Thank you for asking. I started looking into commercial soaps and noticed most of them contain ingredients that I can’t even pronounce, plus they’re not good for you. For example: Dove soap ingredients include: “Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Sodium Tallowate Or Sodium Palmitate, Lauric Acid, Sodium Isethionate, Water, Sodium Stearate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Cocoate Or Sodium Palm Kernelate, Fragrance, Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium Edta, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).”

      I would go with a tooth soap made for your teeth that contains organic, wild-harvested & natural ingredients. Dr. Shealy for this specific reason recommends Opa Toothbar™ as ‘The Best Tooth-Brushing Agent In The World’.

      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.
