“Unfortunate to read reviews after purchase/use of product!”

Written on: 15/12/2017 by MacKenzieqe235 (1 review written)

Why does this product cause so much damage to my lips? It's like battery acid! I thought I trusted Arm & Hammer...not anymore. If I could get my money back, I'd spend it on postage to send letters to the company to STOP MAKING THIS PRODUCT because I do not believe anyone at the company will read this review or do anything to stop others from experiencing pain from use. It's like the #metoo of toothpaste… Read Full Review

“Stops bleeding gums”

Written on: 15/08/2017 by Lavender13 (1 review written)

My gums were bleeding so bad that I was going to see a dentist. Unfortunately I don't have any dental coverage so I started to check out home remedies. Someone advised me to start using baking soda so when I saw that Arm & Hammer had a sensitive toothpaste with baking soda I started to use it. Within one week my gums have stopped bleeding plus my teeth feel whiter and wonderful. There is nothing I can say that is negative....it's all positive. I love this toothpaste!… Read Full Review

“Tips for using this toothpaste”

Written on: 22/06/2017 by Jemmio (1 review written)

In my experience use only at night before bed, make sure you rinse thoroughly and apply a generous amount of moisturising cream to your lips afterwards eg vaseline, blistex or even nappy cream would do. Like most of the reviews written about this toothpaste I too had problems with very sore chapped like lips, thankfully no ill effects inside my mouth as experienced by other reviewers and again like others it took a while for me to realise what was causing my discomfort. In its defence the… Read Full Review

“Recently bought this tooth paste..., after brushing my...”

Written on: 20/06/2017 by JosiahRoberts (1 review written)

Recently bought this tooth paste..., after brushing my teeth today I noticed my gums on the lingual surface of my lower incisors were swollen, bleeding, inflamed and felt like I had burnt it on boiling water. Not realising it was the toothpaste at the time causing this trauma I used it later that day with the same results. Quite terrifying an over the counter toothpaste can cause this kind of reaction. Generally my gums are not sensitive and I'm not allergic to anything so it was a shock to me… Read Full Review

“Bleeding mouth!”

Written on: 10/06/2017 by Laytonl411 (1 review written)

Awful toothpaste! I used this once and when I spat out the foam it was thick with blood. I thought I had an STI! Turns out the whitening agent is an abrasive that tore my lips to shreds. Do not use!… Read Full Review

“Burned my lips to shreds”

Written on: 04/08/2016 by GabrielBarnett (1 review written)

I typically use a baking soda and peroxide based toothpaste, however, this one burnt my mouth and lips horribly. My lips peeled in angry shreds, and my gums were swollen, sore, and bled easily. As soon as I switched back to my old toothpaste and ditched this demon product my mouth returned to normal. I would only recommend this to my enemies… Read Full Review

“Gave me dry, cracked lips”

Written on: 23/05/2015 by Arsenaultpy1961 (1 review written)

For the past few months, I've noticed some chapped and cracked skin in the corners of my mouth. I've never had this condition in my life (I'm 55 years old), and it's painful because these small cracks at the corner of my mouth split open nearly every day. And my mouth has been so dry when I wake up, my front teeth are actually sticking to the inside of my lips -- again -- nothing like this has ever happened to me. I couldn't figure out what the problem was and then, when it started occurring to… Read Full Review

“Burning Mouth, Dry Sore Lips”

Written on: 25/05/2014 by Alfredos244 (1 review written)

For years I used Arm and Hammer with baking soda and more recently the Advance White product with peroxide as I was convinced this product would whiten my teeth. Who doesn't want whiter teeth! After years of seeking help from doctors and dentists, I have come to the realization that it is Arm and Hammer's toothpaste that has caused years of frustration and discomfort. Uurrgh!!! Burning and swollen tongue, gums, lips, mouth and upper throat, with dry, chapped and, recently, open sores on the… Read Full Review

I am experiencing exactly the same symptoms from this product!
It has definatly whitened my teeth but in doing so has left me with a very sore mouth!
My symptoms arrived about 3-5 days after first using Arm & Hammer Extra Whitening toothpaste and like you was searching for reasons why. it was only when I had a brake in useage for approx 1month (when i used another brand) did I realise it must have been the toothpaste. So now 1week into my second attempt at using it my mounth has never been as sore!!
I will NOT be using this product agin and would NOT reccommend it to others for the above reason!

“Prohibit this toothpaste”

Written on: 16/05/2014 by Krausetn450 (1 review written)

I did not realize that I had bought the "extra whitening toothpaste". I noticed it was different and did not give it another thought. One day my teeth felt really sensative. I could not eat cold foods. Unfortunately, I kept using the product until one day it dawned on me that it was the toothpaste. I was getting worse and stopped using the product. I have not used the toothpaste for one week. Today I am worried because my teeth still feel very sensative. Have I done permanently damage to the… Read Full Review

“Made the skin in my mouth peel”

Written on: 18/12/2013

It whitened and made my mouth feel clean an hour later there were layers of skin coming off the inside of my mouth. It was embarrassing in public. I had to excuse myself throughout the day and go to the bathroom to remove the skin. Tried switching to Crest and Sensodyne and the skin peeling problem was still there. I am currently using Toms of Maine Sensitive With Fluoride. The peeling has stopped and my mouth feels great. I will never go back to a regular toothpaste… Read Full Review

Yes, same here!? I used the Arm & Hammer Advance white and within hours the inside of my mouth felt burnt, sore & very sensitive. The corners of my mouth felt raw, skin became split, very red, swollen and very sore! I did have this a few weeks ago but couldn't 'put my finger on it', but now realise using it again that this bloody toothpaste has caused this! I should write to the company really!

“Totally NO GOOD!! A zero zero star. Nearly two weeks...”

Written on: 06/09/2013

Totally NO GOOD!! A zero zero star. Nearly two weeks ago I started using this 'advanced white' baking soda and frosted mint toothpaste safter my girlfriend bought it by accident. I always used arm and hammer toothpaste with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mint flavor, but never the advanced white one, and without h2o2. Funny that I started this on the same day of taking a shingles vaccine. The next day I felt some oddity like a slime skin in my mouth which with time I realized it was indeed… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/10/2013

I have the same problem , The dentist said it's a reaction to the tooth paste and it creates a sticky white substence.

I wrote to Arm & Hamer as I've be using the original for years but now they have discontinued it. No reply how courteous of them.

I would avoid this like the plague unless you want a horrible slime to appear in your mouth about an hour after brushing

“swollen mouth from toothpaste”

Written on: 12/08/2013

I can only concur with the previous testimonials, this toothpaste is terrible! Can't believe it is on the market. I have only used it once, but the reaction in my mouth was so instant after use, I knew it was the toothpaste. As soon as I had rinsed my mouth, I started feeling the inside of my mouth swelling. I put some aloe vera on the swollen bits, but I could still feel a slight tingling in those areas when I woke up the next morning. My partner (who originally bought it) had also used the… Read Full Review

Can't agree more, this product should not be allowed on the market! My mouth and lips are still very sore and painful after using it 3 days ago! I find it difficult to eat or smile, feel like the whole of my mouth has been burnt, I will be interested in the response from Arm & Hammer.

“Horrendous!!!”

Written on: 18/06/2013 by Helikaon (1 review written)

Don't ever use this toothpaste, I had been suffering from dry cracked and peeling lips, sore tongue and redness under my bottom lip, of which the Dr put down to a fungal infection I also stopped the toothpaste at the same time and it cleared up. I just bought the toothpaste again and have been using it 3 days and my lips are dry and cracked and I have the redness under my bottom lip again, it must be the toothpaste. I would leave Arm and Hammer well alone.... I just wish I had researched this… Read Full Review

Twinmom2Girls's Response to Helikaon's Review

Written on: 13/07/2013

I recently ran out of my usual tooth paste while on a trip and grabbed my daughter's tube of this stuff. The inside of my mouth felt dry and my teeth felt like they were stuck to my inside cheeks. My lips got totally cracked (especially in the corners) and my tongue was red and swollen -- it felt like someone had cut little slits in my tongue. Came home and went back to my regular toothpaste for a week and all symptoms went away, but then I ran out and grabbed my daughters' tube again and my symptoms just returned!! SO glad I Googled this problem. I thought I had a food allergy! Throwing this stuff away!

“Do not use”

I used this toothpaste with awful results, first my tongue turned white. Doctor prescribed thrush medication for 2 weeks and did not get better. Then I developed a sore throat, burning tongue, lips and fleshy bumps in my mouth. Very uncomfortable, and stressfull ! After three doctor visits, I did a little research on the toothpaste, and saw several similar experiences. I stopped using it 4 days ago and my mouth is finally feeling better… Read Full Review
