Re(3): Best toothpaste?

Hi Opie,

I don't see any problems with glycerine. There is a lot of misinformation out there on the internet though concerning glycerine such as it "will suck the moisture out of your enamel". But these are myths. Glycerine is very hygroscopic so it does draw moisture. But this includes saliva and the water we rinse our mouth with. Secondly, glycerine is also very water soluble, so it it readily removed from the teeth again when we rinse our mouth and by saliva. So it DOES NOT remain on the teeth causing any issues.

In addition, glycerine also has strong antibacterial properties, so it can help kill the bacteria in the mouth that help to contribute to cavities.
