Healthy mouth – At home tips

18 Jan

We believe a healthy body starts with a healthy mouth. This year why not commit to small manageable changes to benefit your mouth health and overall wellbeing? The start of a new year is the best time to set goals and plan for the year ahead. Maybe you’ve already resolved to improve your emotional health or physical health by signing up for a gym membership, registering for a course, or trying meditation. Supplement these efforts by adding a new habit to your at home oral care routine. Here are some easy and manageable ways to prioritize a healthy mouth in 2019.

A healthy mouth equals a healthy body

  1. Try vitamin supplementation

    A healthy mouth needs vitamins and minerals to function properly. Vitamin C, Calcium and Magnesium, and Coenzyme Q10 can help prevent cavities, bad breath, gum and bone disease and much more!  

  2. Smile more

    Smiling regularly improves your mood and the mood of those around you. A vibrant smile also makes a positive first impression and boosts confidence. If your smile isn’t as bright as you know it can be, there’s no time like the present to book a teeth whitening treatment.

  3. Buy a Waterpik

    It’s a great way to clean in between teeth and remove any impacted food. Add a few peppermint essential oil drops in your Waterpik for minty fresh breath.

  4. Give holistic dentistry a try

    A holistic approach helps restore mouth health and overall health in the most natural way possible. Learn more about holistic dentistry here.

  5. Make your own toothpaste

    Take a holistic approach and try making coconut toothpaste, whitening toothpaste, minty delight toothpaste, or vegan toothpaste at home. Try our homemade toothpaste recipes, here.  

  6. Use essential oils 

    Essential oils have antibacterial qualities and benefit the mouth and the body. Click here to learn about the many uses for essential oils at home.

  7. Buy mouthguards

    Sports accidents happen. Mouthguards are a simple and proactive way to protect your teeth and your child’s teeth during activity.

  8. Visit your dentist regularly

    We’re always happy to see you and help to ensure potential issues are caught early.
