Do you know someone who has chronic bad breath or halitosis? Or do you sometimes feel your breath may be offensive?

There are plenty of causes of bad breath and the most effective way to prevent bad breath is by maintaining good oral hygiene

  • Brush your teeth twice daily: Brush your teeth twice a day to avoid majority of the dental problems.
  • Use a Dental Floss: Flossing cleans the areas that are harder for a toothbrush to reach. It removes the food debris and plaque accumulated between the teeth. Flossing twice daily is preferable
  • Use of Mouth Washes: That may kill the bacterial plaque known to cause bad breath, tooth decay and gingivitis. Use a mouthwash AFTER BRUSHING.
  • Eating right: Maintain a balanced diet but reduce the consumption of foods containing sugars or starch.
  • Regular visits to your Dentist: Regular visits to your dentist to diagnose any oral concerns early. Most oral health problems do not produce any symptoms till they have progressed to a later stage.

Do you suffer from sensitive teeth, bleeding gums, otherwise known as gingivitis?

Bleeding gums can be extremely discomforting physically and mentally. It is important that a person understands that gums that bleed signify a problem and that needs to be addressed to heal your gums and stop gum bleeding.

Gum disease: This is the most common cause for bleeding gums. The initial stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis in which gums become swollen and tender. These bleed upon touch especially during actions such as brushing or eating.

Vigorous brushing: Brushing with toothpaste is abrasive in nature. Overzealous brushing does more harm than good to the teeth.

Causes of Gum Disease:

A sticky bacterial layer known as plaque constantly forms in our oral cavity and has to be removed by effective brushing. When this is not removed, the bacterial plaque releases certain toxins, which irritate the gum causing gum disease. Overtime, the bacterial plaque hardens in to Tartar, which can only be removed by your dentist.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

Typical symptoms include:

  • Bleeding Gums even from normal brushing
  • Red, swollen and sore gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Persistent bad breath

Gingivitis

In this initial stage of gum disease , characterized by swollen bleeding gums. There might be no pain associated with Gingivitis, which is often the cause for people failing to acknowledge the obvious signs of gum disease such as swollen and bleeding gums. Maintaining good oral hygiene can easily treat gingivitis, however you may also need to get your teeth cleaned.

Treatment for gum disease

Mild Gum disease can be controlled without the need of intervention by a dentist. You simply need to take better care of your teeth by brushing and flossing regularly and quit any poor oral habits.

If your gum disease has progressed considerable, you will need a dentist to help you out.  Your teeth and gums will be thoroughly cleaned by the dentist by a procedure known as scaling.

Gum Disease prevention

You know of the saying ‘Prevention is better than cure”. Preventing gum disease is really easy and simply requires maintaining good oral hygiene by regular brushing and flossing.

Tooth pain

“Tooth pain” or “Tooth ache” can be generally regarded as pain around a particular tooth, teeth or jaws. Tooth pain can range from mild discomfort or sensitivity to being excruciatingly painful.

The actual pain we feel is due to the irritation of the nerves, which are associated with the tooth/teeth.  If you didn’t know, nerves are responsible for carrying sensations like heat, cold, touch and PAIN to the brain. In this case when the nerves inside the tooth are irritated, these carry the pain impulse to the brain.

Treatment for Tooth Pain

The treatments for tooth pain vary greatly. They treat the actual cause of your tooth pain. For example: If you have tooth decay, you will have to undergo a filling procedure.  Your dentist will determine the best treatment option for you after examining you.

Have you bought products that say they will help with your problem? Have you read the ingredients before you have purchased the product? If not, you should, that is if you are concerned about the chemicals and toxins in these products.

OK, so we have read about the symptoms, causes and treatment of bad breath (halitosis), gum disease (gingivitis) and tooth pain, so what are the natural ways that may help these symptoms to improve so that we are less likely to need dental care and incur a hefty dental bill?

You may have noticed the mention of Thieves products and I would like to explain why. Thieves is an essential oil blend which was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.  It is antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-infectious essential oil*

Ingredients: Clove† (Syzygium aromaticum), lemon† (Citrus limon), cinnamon† (Cinnamomum verum), Eucalyptus radiata† and rosemary† (Rosmarinus officinalis CT 1,8 cineol).

Hence, these dental care products all have Thieves essential oil included in the ingredients and may be very beneficial for your good dental health.  Plus your dentist will probably be very pleased when you go in for a regular check up.

You and your family will love these products. My two year old niece and 5 year old nephew ask their Mom at least 4 times a day to brush their teeth with Thieves Ultra Toothpaste.  My Mom’s cat loves the Thieves Mouthwash, he likes to “dip” his paw in the left over that is in the sink.  Hmmm….does that resonate safety for our children and our pets? No worries if these products are swallowed, because they are natural, organic and are free of sugar, toxins, chemicals, fluoride and Sodium laureth sulfate.

Go to your medicine cabinet, read the ingredients on your products and if they have bad ingredients, wouldn’t you rather replace them with safer, healthier products?  I sure hope so.
