My dentist husband and I are very rigorous about our children’s dental hygiene so when I heard about Branam Smiles, who makes all natural toothpastes for children, I was excited because finally there is a toothpaste that is all natural but then also has flavors that my kids will enjoy. After reading through Branam Smiles site, I asked my husband about the all natural ingredient, xylitol and he said he is “all for it.”
Most people are unaware of the benefits of Xylitol in toothpaste: “Xylitol is an all natural ingredient that is clinically proven to help reduce bacteria and fight tooth decay. Approved by the FDA in 1963 as a natural alternative to sugar…xylitol is safe for babies and toddlers to swallow, allowing it to be both an effective substitute and complement to fluoride in oral care products.”
A few facts about Branam All Natural Xylitol Toothpaste and Gel:
- Made in the USA
- 100% All Natural
- Gel for children 6 months – 4 years of age and Toothpaste for children 4 and older
- Developed by a Pediatric Dentist

This morning, my children tried the Bubblegum Gel and they loved the taste. There is no foam as it is a gel, but my kids were happy and so was I – they brushed well! In the evening my 4 1/2 year old tried the Toothpaste and he was again liked it. He said it tasted like the gel but the only difference was that the toothpaste was foamy.
I am huge fan of Dr Branam’s products but more importantly my husband loves them. He is going to start recommending it to his pediatric patients and also plans on ordering some for his office.
For only $5.69 for a tube, the Branam Toothpaste and Gel are not expensive. Besides the toothpaste and gels, the Branam Smiles range of products includes xylitol gum, pacifiers and a few more products coming very soon!
