We all understand the importance of good oral hygiene. However, many dental hygiene products contain harmful chemicals or come with a ton of wasteful packaging. Surely there must be a safe, natural way to keep your teeth clean, avoid chemicals and be eco-friendly? Good news guys. There is!
A water flosser like GENIE1 uses pressurised water to blast away any plaque build up and reaches areas in your mouth that a toothbrush can’t. Five power modes offer options for every comfort level. With five useful attachments included, the Home Hygienist oral irrigator water flosser will give you healthier gums and pearly whites in no time - without the chemicals or waste.
There are several other organic hygiene products for your smile that you can try at home. And most of them are in your kitchen cupboard already. Read on to discover 5 natural cleaning products for your teeth.
Oil pulling is the process of moving oil through teeth and around the mouth to clean and detoxify the teeth and gums. It’s a traditional Indian folk remedy that improves oral hygiene and removes toxins from the body.
Remember to shop for high quality, organic oil that doesn’t contain harmful ingredients. Indians traditionally used sunflower or sesame oil, but any oil will do the trick. You can also use coconut oil which tastes far better.
Put one tablespoon of oil into your mouth and swish it around your teeth for 15 to 20 minutes. If the coconut oil is solid and hard, wait a few seconds for the oil to melt in your mouth.
When you’ve finished swishing the oil in your mouth, spit it into the bin, so it doesn’t turn back into a solid lump in your drain pipes or toilet.
Unlike other cleaning methods, oil pulling doesn’t expose your teeth to acid or any other chemicals that can erode your enamel - so you can do this safely every day!
Thanks to its natural whitening properties, baking soda is often found in commercial toothpaste. That’s because it’s a mild abrasive that can scrub away surface stains on your teeth.
It also creates an alkaline environment in your mouth, preventing bacteria from growing. This helps decrease the chance of tooth decay and cavities.
Baking soda has healing powers as well! It can help speed up the healing process of mouth ulcers, gum disease and gum sensitivity.
Mix one teaspoon of baking soda with two teaspoons of water, and brush your teeth with the paste. Do this a few times a week for the best results.
Charcoal is highly absorbent - which makes it one of the most effective natural cleaning products for your teeth.
However activated charcoal can be abrasive on teeth, leading to loss of tooth structure. This can make your teeth look yellow - or worse, wear away your enamel. So be cautious when using charcoal, and remember to use it sparingly.
There are several different ways you can use charcoal to clean your teeth. You can open a capsule of activated charcoal and pour the contents on your toothbrush. Then gently brush your teeth in small circles. Don’t brush too hard as the charcoal is rough.
Another way is to mix the activated charcoal with a small amount of water to make a mouthwash. Swish the solution around your mouth for two minutes and then spit it out. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water otherwise - or your teeth will be black and sooty!
A diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables is not only good for your body, but for your teeth as well. And while it’s no substitute for a toothbrush, crunching on raw fruits and veggies can help rub away plaque as you chew.
Smash a fresh strawberry and mix it with baking soda. Use the mixture to brush your teeth.
Strawberries have malic acid, which removes discolouration from the teeth. Baking soda will then buff away any stains.
However, like activated charcoal, it’s best to only try this method a few times a week. The malic acid could damage your tooth enamel if used too frequently.
Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapples, is effective at whitening teeth. Unfortunately, there isn’t any evidence that proves eating pineapples has the same effect.
However, that hasn’t stopped people from giving it a good old fashioned try. And if it doesn’t work, you’ll at least have an excuse to eat more delish, sweet pineapple!
