Industrial Strength Toothpaste.
Arm and Hammer's literature claims that saliva, which naturally contain sodium bicarbonate is the mouth's natural defense to the bacteria that causes tooth decay and plaque, and that when we sleep our saliva flows more slowly, thus necessitating a special toothpaste stronger than what one normally uses in the morning.
In steps Arm & Hammer Dental Care P.M.: the first toothpaste specifically created to work at night! ™
This baking soda and peroxide toothpaste is available in two flavors: Bold Mint and Fresh Mint. I have no idea what the difference is, but I use bold. And it is bold! The mintiness mixed with the baking soda-clean feeling and the peroxide tingle is almost a sensory-overload.
Also, the amout of fluoride added is over 60% more than the average toothpaste (average calculated from the other two bottles in my medicine cabinet: Colgate and Aquafresh.) This is the reason for all the warnings: fluoride is toxic in large doses, so it's important to try not to swallow to much of this, particularly if you're a small child.
You pay a premium for all this will-sapping, Illuminati/Communist mind control-inducing cleaning power as well: roughly US $1.50 more per 4.5 oz. (128g) bottle.
Of course, the ultimate endorsement comes from my girlfriend, who says my breath really does smell better in the mornings after I brush with it.
That's all the reason I need!
