A Deep Dive Into Dr. Plotka's Mouthwatchers Toothpaste Ingredients

Our toothpaste is a multi-benefit toothpaste that protects sensitive teeth while whitening for a brighter, whiter smile. Uniquely formulated, its proven formula provides sensitive teeth relief and enamel protection to help with sensitivity all while refreshing breath and whitening teeth by removing surface stains. It also fights against cavities, plaque, and gingivitis.

Our toothpaste provides a powerful and natural whitening solution to help keep your teeth healthy and looking their best. Our unique combination of Silica and Hydroxyapatite re-mineralizes teeth, reducing the risk of erosion and restoring them to their natural whiteness. Additionally, organic Propolis, a natural honeybee product known for its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, helps reduce the risk of cavities, gum sensitivity, and plaque build-up. 


For extra protection and comfort, mineral-rich thermal spring water, sourced from France, offers anti-inflammatory benefits that can soothe irritation. To finish, organic mint gives your mouth and breath long-lasting freshness. What's more, our product is 100% of ingredients sourced from natural origins, fully recyclable, and made with 44% post-consumer recycled materials.

Today, we’ll be diving deeper into three of our ingredients, propolis, mint, and Hydroxyapatite so you know how each ingredient works to give you a cleaner, brighter smile!

Propolis, also known as bee glue, is a greenish-brown waxy compound made by honey bees. It’s a combination of natural substances like tree sap, or flowers, plus beeswax. When mixed, it creates Propolis. Bees use propolis to construct hives. In addition, the resin-like substance acts as a barrier against predators and weather.

Studies are starting to show that propolis may hold significant health benefits. Due to this, the usage of propolis is increasing, and more products are popping up on shelves across the world with this beneficial ingredient!

Below are some of the common uses:

  • Helps to reduce inflammation - propolis has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, making it effective in reducing inflammation.
  • A topical solution to keep wounds clean - propolis has been shown to help keep wounds clean and promote healing.
  • Soothes sore throats - propolis has been traditionally used to treat sore throats. It is thought to help by reducing inflammation and promoting healing.
  • Fights gastrointestinal issues - Propolis may help soothe gastrointestinal problems such as ulcers and gastritis when taken as a supplement.

Mint belongs to the Lamiaceae family, which contains a variety of plant species, including peppermint and spearmint, and is a common ingredient found in toothpaste, gum, and other wellness products. Different types of mint plants offer a range of antioxidant qualities and potential health benefits.

We are certainly not the first to use mint in our toothpaste to enhance the flavor and freshen up our breath - in fact, ancient Egyptians are thought to be the first to utilize a tooth cleaning powder made from crushed rock salt, mint, dried iris flower, and pepper! Since then, mint and other herbs were used to make the mixture taste better and promote the overall use of the paste.

Fluoride has long been the standard ingredient in most anti-cavity toothpaste, but Dr. Plotka’s Mouthwatchers is using the science-backed alternative hydroxyapatite. While you won’t find the ingredient in most major drugstore brands’ formulas, hydroxyapatite has decades of research and dental care applications to back it up. In addition to being a proven ingredient, it’s non-toxic and biocompatible, making it a viable option for those seeking natural oral care solutions.

Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a naturally occurring mineral and one of the building blocks that make up your tooth enamel, dentin, and cementum. It protects the inner elements of the teeth from bacteria and decay, which when exposed can lead to cavities, serious infections, gum disease, and even tooth loss.

Hydroxyapatite can help protect your tooth's outer layer, prevent demineralization, and rebuild tooth enamel. This can also reduce:

  • Tooth Sensitivity
  • Periodontitis
  • Oral bacteria
  • Plaque
