So, I'm wondering what toothpastes people have tried to diminish the effect on coffee taste experience.  I's just not efficient for me to brush after having my morning drink.  I use Aquafresh, the plain old regular one, and though it has less of an effect than many others, I'm still not completely satisfied.

The general consensus on this is that Sodium Laureth Sulfate (a surficant added to almost all toothpastes) has an inhibitory effect on the sweet receptors on your tongue. Jim Schulman, for example, cups coffee before brushing. This topic was partly covered in this thread on H-B. See also this explanation on howstuffworks.com

I think one thing to try is look for toothpastes that have no SLS. Tom's of Maine for example.

The brush alone will do the work the paste is mostly for the taste, or so says a few dentists I heard??

Plain baking soda works fine and rinses cleanly from the mouth.

I drink my coffee first though as I don't like the affect of toothpaste on my coffee. Not for everyones routine in the morning though I guess!

yes, Wayne, true indeed.  I actually worked as a dental research assistant for 4 years while in undergrad school as CSUN.  All the dentists I know, and those I still know say the main thing keeping your teeth clean is the act of brushing a full 2 minutes at least twice a day...and it doesn't mater which dentifrice you use.

When possible I drink my coffee first too, but if I have to be in the ED at 7am, I can't get up earlier than 6, so my morning routine doesn't have room for me to brush after coffee in the am.

UH, keep a brush in the car and a bottle of water, then swallow?
I am up at 3am, out the door at 4, in the vanpool lot at 4:30, start work at 6, leave at 2;30 and go to bed sometime after 9..... what is keeping you asleep?

Lol, sure there are solutions. I could bring my high tech oralB electric with me to work too. I think I'd rather just try the baking soda peroxide switch. I have a 6 o'clock rule that has been broken once in the past 15 or so years. I refuse to get up before 6am for work. (Actually 6:02 - after a UK song called Rendezvous 6:02). Yeah, I'm an old prog rocker.

Sensodyne or however it's spelled. It's the most 'chemical free' toothpaste that is accessible almost everywhere.
