When it comes to wellness, oral hygiene is a must. Most of us have a deep-rooted fear of dentists, drilled into us after that very first visit. Each time sharp pain shoots through the gums, our heart sinks for we know another visit is due. Thankfully, we can act preventatively and turn to simple ways for teeth cleaning at home so as to avoid too many dentist visits for problem solving. Want to know how to clean teeth at home effectively? Let’s explore some all-natural, teeth care home remedies and ingredients that promote better oral health.

How To Take Care Of Your Teeth At Home?

1. Regular Brushing & Flossing:

The first remedy that may seem obvious but is often overlooked, is brushing and flossing regularly, ideally twice a day. Lack of effective and sufficient brushing can cause a buildup of plaque, which can lead to several problems, including tooth discolouration. While yellowing is a natural phenomenon and knocks on our door eventually, we can delay its arrival by brushing regularly and thoroughly to reduce bacteria collection in the mouth.

Now only brushing isn’t enough. You also have to be mindful of the kind of toothpaste you choose. One of the very few chemical-free formulations available today is our Botanical Sea Salt & Spearmint toothpaste that helps improve gum health, freshen breath and reduce plaque build-up - all naturally. It has been made by following ancient Ayurvedic principles and is a fresh take on traditional toothpaste. Sea salt and spearmint work together to deeply cleanse the mouth, leaving you with a vibrant, refreshing after-taste. This herbal toothpaste is suitable for sensitive teeth, or even if you’re simply looking for an invigorating alternative in your oral health routine. Follow this up with flossing too, to ensure that your gums are protected as well.

2. Regularly Practicing Oil Pulling:

If you’re looking for more yellow teeth home remedies then you should definitely consider oil pulling. It not only serves to improve your oral hygiene but also contributes to eliminating toxins from the body. The process is simple - one has to gently swirl raw oil in the mouth for 5-20 minutes to combat plaque-causing bacteria and remove other toxins from the oral cavity, which can lead to untimely teeth yellowing and decay. Then, the oil should be spit out, not swallowed. Coconut oil can be used for oil pulling in its raw form. However, this can leave an unpleasant aftertaste and may be uncomfortable for many.

That is why we designed Oill Pulling solutions that are better suited to the modern palette. We  have added refreshing notes of Vanilla, Mint, and Citrus to our Oil Pulling solutions. Our Oil Pulling Solutions (also available in a 21-Day Trial Pack containing all 3 flavours) is a new take on the trusted, age-old formulas - made with virgin, cold-pressed coconut oil and a few all-natural additions. The added blend of clove and peppermint oil gives the oil minty, refreshing notes. Practicing the act of oil pulling regularly helps strengthen gums and improve immunity, whitens teeth, and removes plaque build-up.

3. Incorporating Mint into your oral care routine:

Since ancient times, mint has been a popular herbal ingredient for dental care. Back then, the best way to benefit from the germicidal and antiseptic properties of mint was to chew on fresh leaves or place them on the teeth and gums. Instead, today we have a range of mint-based oral care products that bring us the same benefits, along with a touch of modern science and convenience.

The germicidal properties of mint help reduce bacteria residue that causes gum infection and tooth decay. The herb also contains anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can alleviate the discomfort that comes with sore gums. In addition, it is packed with multivitamins and minerals that play a vital role in maintaining periodontal health. But, the best part about mint-based oral care products is that they leave a cool sensation after brushing thanks to the traces of natural menthol!

4. Using Cinnamon extracts:

The healing properties of cinnamon barks have been utilized for thousands of years. Owing to compounds such as cinnamaldehyde, cinnamic acid, and cinnamate, cinnamon remains one of the more popular spices in the realm of wellness. This powerful spice, with its fragrant aroma and woody flavor, has been an essential ingredient in several ancient dental remedies.

Cinnamon was traditionally used in tooth powder. Cinnamaldehyde has antifungal and antibacterial properties that help fight bacteria leading to bad breath. Cinnamon oil extracts can protect against certain strains of bacteria that cause tooth decay and cavities. Today, there are a few products that best capture the essence of this spice. When blended with other ingredients, cinnamon-based toothpaste and oils can promote excellent oral health.

5. Soothing Sea Salt:

Rinsing with a saltwater solution reduces the amount of plaque in the mouth. It is effective in matters of killing bacteria in the mouth and helps eliminate microbes that cause periodontal gum disease. The practice also helps prevent tooth decay. Its antiseptic properties can help wounds heal in the mouth.

Adding sea salt-based mouthwash or toothpaste to your regular oral care routine may also help reduce bacteria and promote dental health. Natural sea-salt crystals are one of the key ingredients in our Botanical toothpaste.
