You must be familiar with the benefits for the health of coconut oil, but you still do not know all the dental health benefits. Studies shown that this is amazing as used for kids like kids toothpaste since it has no chemicals and does not make irritations.
Dental hygiene and health is vital for the whole health and mouth issues and infections can make other health problems in the body; dementia, stroke, respiratory and heart problems. So always pay attention to the oral health. the latest studies of this oil are that it is amazing for the oral health even better than a toothpaste.
A new study of the Athlone Institute said this oil is better at keeping teeth perfectly healthy. Also it kills bacteria and it has digestive enzyme that kills bacteria in the mouth.
The S Mutans and Streptococcus are acidic bacteria and the main reasons for decay of teeth in both kids and adults. They get the energy of the sugar and make acidity in the mouth which makes teeth demineralized and they decay.
Dr. Damien Brady main expert of Athlone Technology Institute said that coconut oil with its enzymes is amazing for the dental health and better than chemical items with additives. Also it is better at antibiotic functions as far as fighting microbes go.
To avoid the bad chemicals people must opt for natural items for the teeth. The toothpastes have triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, fluoride and sweeteners like aspartame that are UNHEALTHY.
For example the triclosan can make endocrine issues and s. lauryl can affect the taste buds.
Then again we have a natural toothpaste with coconut oil:
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 2-3 tbsp baking soda
- 15-30 drops lemon or mint oil
Mix them all to make a paste.
Also oil pulling is another good method where you get spoonful of the oil and swish it in the mouth for 20 min before the breakfast.
Then spit the oil and remove the mouth bacteria, leaving the teeth white and healthy.
