Natural Ways to Keep Your Gums and Teeth Healthy


Do you prefer natural ingredients when it comes to your healthcare? If so, there are a variety of great options that you can use in order to ensure that your gums and teeth remain healthy. However, if you do choose to use a natural product, you need to remember that it should never be a replacement for brushing and flossing, as you still need to keep up these habits in order to maintain a healthy smile.

Try Baking Soda


Baking soda is a popular option for fighting off tooth decay. While baking soda is often found in toothpastes and whitening products, many people brush with it on its own. It is a great way to remove stains from the teeth, as sodium bicarbonate can serve as an excellent abrasive.

Use Green Tea Oil


Green tea oil can help to protect your teeth from erosion. It is thought to stop starchy foods from causing your teeth to decay, and studies have shown that when people regularly drink green tea, they tend to have healthier gums than people who don’t.

Try Other Natural Oils


Natural oils like tea tree, menthol, and eucalyptol can be beneficial in keeping your mouth healthy by killing off harmful bacteria. This step is crucial in order to keep your gums from suffering inflammation. There are a variety of mouthwashes and toothpastes that contain these ingredients.
