    Ditch the Toothpaste

    Herbal tooth and gum powder is a better alternative to commercial toothpaste.

    Most people are trained to believe that optimum dental health comes from properly brushing and flossing on a regular basis. While these are important parts of good hygiene, they are not what helps prevent tooth decay and cavities. Tooth decay occurs as a result from a lack of nutrients and minerals in the body, not as result of bacteria in the mouth.

    Tooth brushing alone will not prevent cavities, but it can help keep your mouth feel clean. It is also wise to keep your mouth clean if you are suffering from tooth decay or cavities. While it will not stop cavities, cleaning the teeth will help change the environment in your mouth and may slow down tooth decay.

    Conventional toothpaste may do more harm than good, so it is best to ditch the toothpaste and look for a more natural alternative. Most of the toothpaste on the market contains fluoride and/or glycerin.  Fluoride is a toxic substance, and you should avoid any product that lists it as an ingredient. It has been linked to numerous health problems, including hormonal imbalances and hip fractures. While many dentists will claim it helps prevent cavities, it actually causes more problems. Fluoride makes the bones and teeth more brittle, which leads to fractures and weak enamel of the teeth. It can also cause fluorosis, which is a discoloration of the tooth enamel.

    Glycerin is another common ingredient in toothpaste, and it can also cause dental health issues. Glycerin can be made from lard, corn or biodiesel processing. Which type of glycerin is in your toothpaste depends on who manufactured it. Glycerin is an oily substance that attracts moisture. Glycerin will leave a film over the teeth, which could prevent the teeth from becoming harder or stronger. It is also a highly sweetened liquid, which could be harmful to the body. Other ingredients in toothpaste, such as hydrated silica, are abrasive and can wear down tooth enamel.

    So what can you use to clean your teeth? There are other products that are made with all-natural ingredients that are better alternatives than using toothpaste. Look for products that feature organic herbs. Herbal Tooth and Gum Powder features organic ingredients and a strong minty taste. It is best used for reducing inflammation and tightening up the gums.  It can be used to clean the teeth and remove residues from the teeth. It will leave your mouth feeling fresh, and you won’t have to worry about toxic ingredients that are found in toothpaste.

    You can also make your own tooth cleansers at home. Here are two simple ways to clean your teeth with items you probably already have at home.

    Sea Salt: Simply apply a small amount to your toothbrush and clean the teeth.

    Baking Soda: A small amount of baking soda and water can be used to clean the teeth. Some people report that this irritates their gums; while others feel it helps heal the gums and clean the teeth well.

"Tooth decay occurs as a result from a lack of nutrients and minerals in the body, not as result of bacteria in the mouth"

!!!!!!!!! completely disagree!!!!!!!!!!!

we all know that dental caries in an microbiological disease that needs specific microorganisms to initiate it.

drmathurpulkit This is the old and lost way of thinking. Bacteria may play a role in the process of tooth decay, but they are not the cause. It is not what the bacteria are eating, it is what you are eating. See the book Dentinal Fluid Transport Mechanism with 30 years of studies proving me right.

drmathurpulkit I am a nutritionist and completely agree with Rami. Once you learn the intricacies of the body system and how nutrient delivery systems affect each system, it is easy to see how a system like the teeth are affected by poor nutrition. Teeth are bones just like skeletal bones, and the skeletal bones had a mineralization and demineralization system that is affected by things like parathyroid hormone, minerals, and vitamin D. The slightest imbalance pulls calcium out from bones with raised parathyroid hormone levels and makes for weak, brittle or soft bones.

drmathurpulkit I suffered from poor oral health and tooth decay for most of my adult life. I brushed and flossed several times a day to no avail. Once I changed my diet by removing sugar and starchy foods my health and my oral health finally improved. I no longer have tooth decay or gingivitis. I no longer have bad breath, I now only need to brush and floss once a day and have beautiful healthy teeth. I use Coconut oil and baking soda to brush my teeth.
