Natural Tooth Care Solutions for Your Oral Hygiene

Natural Tooth Care Solutions for Your Oral Hygiene

Let’s be honest, no one enjoys going to the dentist. In fact, some people are downright fearful of their twice-yearly visit to their local NHS practitioner, with the sound of the drill inducing panic and a white-knuckled grip on the dentist’s chair.

At Nutrident, you’ll find lots of information about maintaining good oral health and here, we take a closer look at the natural solutions that exist to help you do just this. So, if you’re ready, we’ll begin.

A Healthy Diet Is a Great Start

Besides the many dental care products on the market, there are several natural solutions that exist in the home. Also, NHS advice* suggests that a good diet can contribute hugely to your dental health, as the adage ‘you are what you eat’ certainly applies in this case.


What you eat is just about as important as what you don’t, with processed sugary foods and drinks being the main group you need to minimise. Then, by supplementing your diet with raw dairy products, you give your body the vitamins that are key to good oral health. Sure, this won’t reverse the big cavities you already have, but it can help to remineralize your teeth.

Natural Solutions From Your Kitchen Cupboards

Protecting your teeth and overall oral health doesn’t have to cost a fortune, as there are several natural tooth care solutions found in most UK kitchens. These include:

  • Oil Pulling – as you can see by watching this video, rinsing your mouth out with coconut oil will ‘pull’ out the bacteria that cause plaque. It takes around 20 minutes each time, however, it can also help to whiten your teeth, as well as treat headaches.
  • Baking Soda – something else that can help your smile is baking soda, which possesses natural teeth whitening power – evidenced by the fact that you can buy toothpaste with baking soda inside.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar – Rich in antibacterial properties, apple cider vinegar can also help whiten your teeth and prevent plaque buildup. However, it is quite acidic, so it’s best not to overuse it (once or twice a week, max).
  • DIY mineralised toothpaste – you can find natural tooth care solutions in DIY toothpaste that contain things like bentonite clay and charcoal (both great for absorbing toxins). Of course, if you’d prefer not to go down the DIY route, there are charcoal and bentonite products on the market.

These natural tooth care solutions are perhaps not as well known as they should be, as they can be really effective in keeping oral acidity to a minimum and leave you with whiter teeth and a fresher, healthier mouth.

Look After Your Teeth & They’ll Look After You Back

So, if you’re one of the many people who gets a shiver down their spine when they think of sitting in the dentist’s chair, why not consider using some of these natural tooth care solutions yourself? They’re painless (unlike cavities), affordable and might just end up with you having fewer dental issues in the future.

Take care of your teeth and gums and they’ll look after you back across your whole lifetime. We hope you have found our article useful and that by using the tips shown here; you enjoy a happier and more balanced oral life.
