How to Look After Your Oral Hygiene Naturally

Looking after your teeth doesn’t have to mean harsh chemicals and alcohol. Keep reading for some all natural ways to prevent oral health issues.

Your teeth need to be looked after your entire life to prevent tooth decay, gingivitis, cavities and other issues. But burning alcohol and unnatural ingredients aren't the only options out there to keep your entire mouth healthy.

Choosing the Right Products
What products you choose to care for your mouth is just as important as your oral hygiene practices. Going natural is easier than ever thanks to more readily available items with proven results. You can fight cavities, tooth decay and gingivitis in a gentle way. Look out for these ingredients to care for your oral health:

  • Neem -- Neem is a plant commonly used in toothpaste that helps prevent bacteria from accumulating along the gum line, which can lead to infection and tooth decay.
  • Xylitol -- A natural sugar alcohol, xylitol is a great way to prevent tooth decay. You can find this ingredient in gums and toothpaste to prevent plaque buildup.
  • Probiotics -- Probiotics help keep the good and bad bacteria within the body in balance, including the mouth. They may also help whiten the teeth.
  • Peppermint -- This herb not only helps freshen breath, it may have anti-cavity properties. You can find it in a range of products, but make sure the peppermint included is the essential oil instead of an artificial flavoring.
  • Birch Tree Extract -- Birch trees are a source of xylitol, as mentioned above. The extract of the bark is also included in oral care products for additional protection.

Tips for Proper Oral Hygiene
Now that you know which ingredients to look for, it’s time to examine your oral care routine. Follow these guidelines for a healthy mouth:

  1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, in the morning and in the evening to prevent the development of tartar and plaque that can leas to cavities.
  2. Floss twice a day and after meals to remove debris from food and plaque.
  3. Use mouthwash twice a day to flush out germs and bacteria.
  4. Take your probiotic supplement with meals for optimal absorption.
  5. Use a straw to drink acidic beverages like citrus juice or coffee to avoid damage to the enamel as well as stains.
  6. Use your teeth to bite foods like apples to strengthen them.
  7. Make sure to get plenty of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D to keep teeth strong.
