Keeping your mouth healthy by using natural resources can be a challenging proposition. How do you know what natural products are actually good for you, and which ones are just a gimmick? It’s a question that plagues the natural oral health community, but today’s post will show you three surefire natural oral health tips that we promise will help your teeth and mouth become healthier.

Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is an odd one, but it works. Find a favorite oil of yours, them simply swish and swirl it around your mouth for about 30 seconds. What this does is literally pull toxins from your mouth, because of the way bacteria bonds with certain ingredients in oils. In fact, a research study indicated that oil pulling reduced instances of plaque-induced gingivitis. Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease – the gathering of bacteria just under the gum line – and if left untreated can result in full-blown periodontitis.

Oral probiotics

Oral probiotics taken on a regular basis will insert the right kind of bacteria in your mouth – the ones that fight cavities and tooth decay. With the proven link between oral health and overall well-being, it’s important to make sure the bacteria in your mouth are working for you, not against you.

Add natural floss

Tea Tree oil floss is one of the best products you can use. Tea tree oil is a natural disinfectant, which kills bad oral bacteria. This, combined with oral probiotics, is going to get your mouth as clean and free of bacteria as possible.
