Home Remedies for Healthy Teeth and Gums


| 1/28/2015 7:00:00 AM


Recent research has shed light on the importance that dental health is to our overall health and longevity: The Mayo Clinic reports that poor oral health can affect endocarditis, an infection of the inner lining of the heart, as well as cardiovascular disease, premature birth and low birth weight, diabetes, immune system disorders and eating disorders.  

It may be well worth giving up commercial toothpaste and turning toward home remedies for healthy teeth and gums.  

Home Remedies For Healthy Teeth

Is Traditional Dental Care the Best?

Experts recommend protecting your teeth and gums by getting regular dental checkups; eating a healthful diet; and brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice daily. Katie The Wellness Mama cites studies about oral health and lack of minerals by married doctors Mellanby and Weston Price, showing that vitamin D is important to healthy teeth. She discusses her own experience with a diet that helps her treat cavities and improve oral health: She cuts out grains, beans and nuts, limits food with sugars and starches, and adding healthful fats (coconut oil); pastured, cultured butter; and homemade bone broths.

Even if you eat this way, regular toothpaste contains lots of things you may not want in your system. When was the last time you read the ingredients on the toothpaste you buy? Do you know what’s in your toothpaste? Do you have a favorite brand or flavor of toothpaste?



Commercially prepared toothpaste has ingredients such as synthetic additives; disinfectant chemicals containing ammonium compounds,; preservatives; fluoride; foaming agents; abrasive silicas and mica; artificial colors and flavors; and even have plastic microbeads that can get lodged underneath gums and in between teeth.
