Toothpowder Puts you Back in Control of Your Teeth

toothpowdersNo preservatives needed in this dry toothpowder. YOU add the water! Use toothpowder to clean your mouth and raise your ph so bacteria don’t like you or your mouth. Yeah! No bacteria, no plaque. No plaque, no gum disease or tooth decay.

DIRECTIONS TO USING A TOOTHPOWDER

Pour a little on the palm of your hand and use a wet toothbrush to scoop up with your brush. Brush your teeth for two minutes, remember to give your tongue and top of your mouth a brush too.

TOOTHPOWDER INGREDIENTS

My (Hi, it’s Brenda) toothpowders all have baking soda, cream of tarter, calcium carbonate, diatomaceous earth, clay and special exotic salts, and herbs.

Baking Soda is the powerhouse in this toothpowder because it raises the Ph in your mouth and provides a soft, gentle cleaning of your teeth. Baking Soda might seem to grainy for teeth enamel but as long as it is wet, I am told it is good for your teeth, well more than good, great!

Cream of Tarter comes from the production of wine, it is a little bit acidic and it adds that effervescence in my toothpowder that makes the teeth feel clean.

Calcium Carbonate is a great little mineral, especially for teeth and you’ll see it in most good toothpastes as a way to keep your teeth nice and mineralized.

Diatomaceous Earth is a natural tooth cleaner. In fact, most commercial brands of toothpaste have silica in their toothpaste. Well, DE is a natural silica. It is hard, so it acts as an abrasive but it is also microscopic, which makes it a nice and exceptionally gentle abrasive. It also keep the toothpowder dry once you’ve opened it.

Clays are naturally detoxing, meaning they attract bad stuff, the bad stuff sticks to the clay and it becomes easy to get rid of. Also, clay s have minerals in them andthese  minerals can be absorbed by your teeth, protecting them.

Salts provide antibacterial action, remineralizing power and preservative help.

Activated Charcoal Toothpowder

Activated Charcoal is an adsorper, meaning it has microscopic crags and crevices which trap toxins and carry them away. This is why Activated Charcoal is used in hospitals to treat poison victims and used in water filtration systems to clean water. It is this detoxifying effect that actually whitens teeth.

Licorice prevents cavities and helps gums studies suggest by inhibiting bacteria.

Fennel is often offered at the end of an Indian meals to freshen breath and clean teeth. It has been used in this way for millennia.

My Red Toothpowder contains Red Clay from Morocco which I purchase from Mountain Rose Herbs.  They write that their clay “is quarry mined and sun dried from naturally occurring lake-side deposits and is untreated.”

Mined deep beneath the Atlas Mountains in Eastern Morocco it must be extracted under extremely special conditions.
Through meticulous selection, and extensive contact with the raw material we are proud to offer this rich Rhassoul that is truly unique in quality and purity.
Mountain Rose Herbs

Animals seek out clay to eat.

A paper written in the Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials cites the possibility of clays

may serve an antibacterial function.

Excellent adsorbent

Many toothpastes add calcium and other minerals to stregnthen teeth. Clay is naturally rich in trace minerals.

Chewing sticks common in India and the Middle East showed good antibacterial properties against common bacteria found in mouth, according to a recent study I found in PubMed.gov.  The study was done in India by the Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry. The published research concluded that:

…neem showed the most antimicrobial activity against S mutans, while miswak (peelu) extracts showed superior antimicrobial activity against L acidophilus
