Due to gum line recession, and tooth and mouth pain after having some crowns refilled in a poor fashion....
I have a few questions about my new toothpaste, which seems to be effective in relieving some gum pain, unlike any other toothpastes.
I know it is widely used in Asia. And I wonder if I can find it in Korean markets back home? Does anyone have a Korean market in their community? If so, do you have access to the toothpaste I mentioned?
It's name is "Eun Kang Go" Bamboo Salt toothpaste. It is an LG [company name] product.
Here, in Asia, it is about $2.50 USD per standard-sized tube.
Stateside, I find it is $9.50 USD per tube as sold on Ebay.
One active ingredient is sodium fluoride. I have no idea what percentage amount.
However, it seems to be working better, and leaves my gums feeling cleaner than Oral-B Sensitive toothpaste, which I do not like to use. Plus, Oral B seems to have a bunch of weird ingredients in the paste.
I have found any "natural pastes" with strong "essential oils" in them irritate my gums. Even though this paste has oils, I have no problems with it.
Here is the complete list I found of what's inside the Bamboo Salt toothpaste: [I hope I can find it locally, back home]:
If anyone finds it, I'd like to know where I can buy it, in the USA.
Currcuma Xanthorriza oil
In Southern California there are plenty of Korean supermarkets that sell the LG Bamboo Salt toothpaste. The store chain is called the Hannam Chain is and they opened a new location in La Palma.They are selling the toothpaste at only $3.99 a tube.
