In this post, I am going to teach you how to develop a non toxic oral health routine.  These are the easiest ways to improve your dental hygiene and make sure toxins do not end up in your body. These tips will help freshen your breath, improve gum health and detox your mouth. 

How can I improve my oral health naturally?

Implement a safe non toxic oral health routine by using an electric brush, tongue scraping, flossing twice daily and oil pulling when you can.

Use an electric brush or a brush with soft or extra soft bristles so you do not damage or add to gum recession. Think of giving the gums a gentle massage.

How do I get rid of bad bacteria in my mouth?

Another component of a non toxic oral health routine to get rid of bad  bacteria in the mouth is tongue scraping. You want to use a metal scraper (like this one) or a spoon to remove plaque and toxins, improve digestion and get this….keep hairs on the tongue short. Yes, seriously I have seen what is called black or brown hairy tongue when someone does not scrape and it is not pretty.

You want to scrape versus using a brush, as the brush just moves plaque around but does not effectively remove it.

Our teeth are rounded so you must floss twice a day or your only cleaning about two thirds of your teeth. If you get food stuck, I like a more woven floss (like this one). If you have tight contacts, try a floss like this one instead of Glide, which is flat and shiny and does a sub-par job removing debris. Many commercial brands may contain Teflon, which is linked to a host of neurological and other health conditions.

How do you disinfect your mouth?

Here’s the deal with your mouth. The best way to ensure it’s clean and healthy is with mechanical plaque removal by brushing, flossing and tongue scraping. Toothpaste is essentially  a breath freshener that may have some added benefits.  For example, this Charcoal CBD Oil Toothpaste Recipe is great for whitening and removing stain, helps with sleep and may help kill some bacteria. That said, here are a few toothpastes I recommend:

For kids and those with sensitive teeth: Squiggle Toothbuilder

For those looking for stain removal: Probiotic Charcoal Paste or DIY Charcoal CBD Oil Toothpaste Recipe

Normal teeth: This DIY Natural Toothpaste Recipe or Earthpaste

    1. I love it and still do it most days. I notice: better energy, whiter and cleaner feeling teeth, as well as clearer skin. I believe they absolutely can so long as they brush well afterwards.

    1. Hi! Great questions. Accidentally swallowing some oil while pulling would not be an issue. I wouldn’t recommend regularly swallowing the oil, as there are some toxins that you wouldn’t want to re-ingest!
