9 Natural Tooth Care Tips

Posted by Administrator on 7/31/2012

The first step to taking care of your teeth naturally is taking care of you naturally.  The general health of your teeth also represents the health of your bones and your cardiovascular system.  So if your heart and blood are healthy and your bones are healthy, your teeth will be too.  If your teeth are sensitive, brittle, discolored or cavity prone, you must look at your mineral intake and assimilation. 

Some ways to get minerals back into the diet are to increase the amount of greens you eat, drink green juices like Dynamic Greens, eat sea vegetables, take marine phytoplankton, or supplement with mineral supplements like MegaFood Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium.  This will help your body remineralize and hopefully start to rebuild your teeth and reduce the acidic environment in your mouth — and your body.

  • Use a tongue cleaner. I know, it sounds icky, but the slimy stuff on your tongue when you wake up is plaque. Its ickier to leave it on.

  • You have to floss. There is no way around it.  Flossing is the best way to keep your gums healthy and reverse gum disease.  Don’t believe the “animals don’t floss their teeth so we shouldn’t either” natural approach.  Bacteria can cause receding gums, but they also can cause acidity and tooth decay.  Flossing daily will help remove some of these harmful bacteria. 
  • Use an ayurvedic toothpaste for the best blend of warming, astringent and detoxifying herbs or try an all natural, fluoride free brand such as Tom's of Maine. These herbs will promote gum circulation, tightening and cleansing.

  • Sprinkle baking soda on your toothpaste for extra cleansing and whitening.  Brush a few times a week with a paste made of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Rub this on your gums too.
  • Brushing too hard can cause receding gums, tooth sensitivity, and even enamel loss.  Use a soft toothbrush for less gum irritation.

  • Rinse with green tea for a natural fluoride wash.
  • While you are sick and after a cold or flu, don't stick that germ-filled toothbrush back into your mouth. Rinse it thoroughly with hydrogen peroxide, or throw it out and buy a new one.
  • May as well green up the routine, too! Use a Preserve toothbrush made from recycled plastic.  Buy a new toothbrush at least every three months, but once a month is even best.
  • If you get a toothache after all that, clove oil works wonders. Apply directly to the painful tooth with a Q-tip so you don't get the burning oil on your gums. A paste of ginger and cayenne powder also works.
