Natural Tooth Care
One of the most important changes you can make to improve your dental health is to eat a healthy diet. In-digenous people didn't experience tooth decay, and the key to that can be traced back to their diet. Pure, healthy food acted as a kind of natural dental care, actually preventing problems before they started. The Western diet, filled with sugar, carbohydrates, and processed food stripped of beneficial vitamins, introduced us to oral disease. It is possible to re-mineralize your teeth and rebuild tooth enamel through a healthy diet, but the real culprit is the body stealing minerals such as calcium from our teeth and bones to replenish low levels in the blood. Sugar alters the pH levels in the blood, so the body must supplement it with calcium from other parts of the body.
Regardless of what information is out there about natural tooth care, the most important thing to do is keep the mouth and teeth clean and remove destructive bacteria through proper brushing and flossing. This includes regular cleaning visits with a dentist to remove built up deposits below the gum line. Improv-ing your diet by limiting artificial additives and refined sugars, while adding fruits and vegetables, will im-prove all aspects of your health- including your teeth. If you take good care of your teeth, they will take care of you.
