How to create a holistic dental routine

Most of us know that commercial toothpaste and dental products are filled with a bunch of gross chemicals.  So I started researching on the best way to naturally care for my teeth. I found my regular dental routine wasn’t giving me the results I was looking for.   I also wanted to use more natural products. If this is your situation.  Here are some steps on how to create a holistic dental routine.

1. Find a quality toothbrush

The first step in creating a holistic dental routine is getting a quality toothbrush.  I used to use regular toothbrush but found it didn’t get my teeth as clean I would like.  Recently we made the switch to Oral-B Pro 1000.  This toothbrush is a good alternative if you can’t afford an Soni Care. However, a regular toothbrush will work for this routine as well.

2. Oil pulling

Oil pulling is great.  I will be the first to admit I don’t do it everyday, but I do it at least a few times a week.  I really feel it helps with the health of my gums if nothing else.  I suggest using unrefined coconut oil (this one is really good)  or sesame oil.  Just put the oil in your mouth and swish it around for about 10-20 minutes. Spit. Rinse with salt water.

4.  Tongue Scraper/Metal Spoon

Unless of course you have a tongue scraper then use that.  I just use a metal to scrape my tongue.

 5. Make your own toothpaste

I suggest making your own toothpaste.  I find that my tooth paste actually makes my mouth feel cleaner then store bought toothpaste.  I just make a paste of baking soda and coconut oil and go to town on my teeth!  If you want to be fancy you can add an essential oil like peppermint.

6. Use liquid chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is a natural breath freshener. After I brush, I take a about two tablespoons for this.  I prefer using the kind with mint.  You can also use it as a natural mouth rinse but I found it turns my teeth green.

7. Oral Irrigator

If you can’t afford an oral irrigator like WaterPik, I suggest using a oral syringe. I found some one amazon fairly cheap.  I use this and it works fine, I just have to squeeze a little harder to get water through my teeth.

8.  Healthy Gum Elixir

With healthy gum elixir’s you can add a bit of an essential oil blend to your  floss.  You can buy a pre made one or make your own.  Just make a blend of essential oil’s of your choice and there you have a healthy hum elixir.
