What Exactly Is Tooth Oil?
Dentists will always recommend that you look after your teeth, but many are increasingly aware that regular toothpaste can be full of synthetic chemicals. So are there any alternatives on the market that could be just as good for your teeth? Today, we’re talking about tooth oil and if you’ve never heard of it, you need to read our quick guide today.
What is it?
Quite simply, it’s an oil that contains all sorts of amazing natural ingredients that can help you with your dental regime. Think vitamins A, C and E, green tea extract, sesame oil, myrrh, eucalyptus, cinnamon, clove oil, lemon oil plus ethereal oils and xylitol (a vegetable sugar known to help keep your teeth clean).
How to use it
Shake your bottle well before use and then using a teaspoon of the oil, swish it around your mouth, teeth and gums. Spread it around your entire mouth and teeth for a few minutes using your tongue and then afterwards spit it out. When you’re ready, brush your teeth and tongue as you normally would using a damp toothbrush. Then rinse well with water. You can also take it to work with you to use on the go so it’s a highly flexible option for keeping your teeth clean and sparkling fresh.
Also known as oil pulling, this way of brushing your teeth is growing in popularity and many recent studies have revealed that it can really prove beneficial in helping protect you against bad breath, plaque and gingivitis. The oil “pulls” bacterial from teeth, gums and they are then removed from the mouth.
