June 7, 2011: Natural Dental Care Recipes

Bookmark and Share

If you’re working to get into – and stay in – shape this summer while looking your best, don’t forget your teeth. Nothing makes you look more unattractive than a dingy smile, especially since white teeth look great against a tanned face (but hopefully you’re using a tanning cream instead of damaging your skin in the direct rays of the sun!). Don’t let plaque or garlic breath ruin your attractive image.

Here’s a few natural teeth remedies that are easy and budget-friendly.

Tea Tree Oil

Prevent gum disease and kill bacteria by adding a drop of tea tree oil to your toothbrush before you squeeze on toothpaste. Since tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic, it helps keep your gums as clean as they can be, preventing plaque.

Cloves

Are you suffering from a toothache and can’t get to the dentist right away? Try stuffing a couple cloves in between your cheek and gum, right where you are feeling pain. This is an old remedy that’s been used for centuries to alleviate toothaches.

Parsley

Need to freshen your breath but you don’t have any gum in your purse? Much on a few sprigs of parsley. Parsley is a natural breath freshener. You might want to do as my mother told me: when you’re eating out, don’t toss that sprig of parsley decorating your food away; chew on it to remove the odors of your meal!

Tip: Eating foods full of Vitamin A and Vitamin C help your teeth stay healthy!
