Dentists Warn About Toothpaste That Contains Plastic Microbeads

by Natural Blaze

Several local news stations from around the U.S. report that dentists are alarmed by blue polyethylene (plastic) microbeads in Crest brand toothpaste that are causing harm to their patients’ teeth and gums.

Crest is now reportedly taking action to remove the dangerous ingredient from “most” of its toothpastes.

The American Dental Association quickly released an official statement contradicting local dentists claiming that they do not believe polyethylene microbeads poses a health risk.

It reads in part:

The American Dental Association’s (ADA) Council on Scientific Affairs, on an ongoing basis, monitors and evaluates the safety of all ADA Seal-Accepted products. If the council’s evaluation determines sufficient scientific evidence exists that an ADA Seal-Accepted product poses a health risk, the council has the authority to withdraw the Seal from that product. At this time, clinically relevant dental health studies do not indicate that the Seal should be removed from toothpastes that contain polyethylene microbeads.

Source: Dr. Brian Kumer, a dentist from Summit Heights dental clinic in North York, ON, recommends to always read toothpaste labels to look for “polyethylene” or probably best to stick to natural toothpastes that are also fluoride free.
