If you’re among the millions of Americans who seek out natural products to help improve your life and health, there’s good news: it actually does help. Although there’s no replacement for regular brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash, applying natural remedies to your dental health routine can benefit you.

Natural remedies can often be expensive and hard to find, but you’re in luck. Three of the biggest helpers for your mouth are commercially available at any grocery store and they’re affordable. Here are three easy to find natural remedies to apply to your everyday dental health habits:

Green Tea
A multitude of studies have shown green tea to have properties that promote whole body health and healing, but it’s also been shown that people who drink green tea on a regular basis tend to have healthier gums.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D is known to protect against diabetes and makes bones healthy. It’s also great for your mouth because it aids your body in killing bacteria and reduces the risk of gum disease.

Baking Soda
Some of the biggest benefits of brushing your teeth with baking soda are its ability to remove plaque and even whiten your teeth. Good old sodium bicarbonate (also known as baking soda) has even been shown to deodorize your teeth because of its properties as an antibacterial agent.
As previously mentioned, a regular routine that includes brushing and flossing (along with regular visits to your dentist!) will be the most important step in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Contact us today to set up an appointment and we’d be happy to discuss which natural remedies would work with your daily routine!
