This clay naturally binds to toxins, helping eliminate heavy metal toxins from mercury fillings. Plus, it’s rich in minerals that are nourishing to gums and teeth
Bicarb of Soda
A long-time trusted tooth cleaner. It works as a gentle abrasive to gently polish teeth and clean and whiten your smile.
Xylitol not only adds a sweeter taste to the powder, but also can benefit your oral health. It naturally stimulates saliva production, which helps protect and remineralize teeth. Stevia is another good option if you wish to use a different sweetener.
Essential oils have an endless list of benefits. Peppermint oil is a great choice for dental powder because it is naturally antiseptic and antibacterial. On top of having pain-relieving properties, it also leaves your mouth feeling minty and fresh.
How to use tooth powder:
It might take a few brushings to get used to using tooth powder – unlike toothpaste, it’s not overly sweet since there are no artificial flavorings added. It also won’t foam up like regular toothpaste, but it will clean your teeth just as well! (if not better…)
Simply wet your toothbrush, shake off the excess water, and dip half of the bristles into the tooth powder. Once you have a small amount of powder coating the bristles, brush your teeth as normal.
