We have not used toothpaste with fluoride for decades but I have had a hard time finding palatable things for my children that I have been 100% satisfied with. I avoid toothpastes with SLS, but most natural toothpastes contain glycerin, which may leave a coating on teeth.

I am making a bit of progress. I have recently been studying the positive effects of xylitol, a natural sweetener on dental health. Supposedly it kills bacteria, like strep, in the mouth, which can cause decay.

I made a tooth powder with baking soda, xylitol and peppermint essential oil. I like it. My 6 year old doesn't care for it. But ah ha! My 9 year old loves it.

  • 1 Tablespooon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon xylitol
  • 2 drops peppermint essential oil

Mix together. Sprinkle onto wet toothbrush and brush gently.

I think it is tasty, too.

Unrefined SALT for brushing teeth. easier when it is fine and not too coarse. I have very good experience, teeth and mouth feel very clean afterwards.

Hello everyone. I happened upon this site because I've been trying to get a little healthier?! I've had REALLY BAD teeth FOREVER and reading some of these remedies has really been amazing!! I've already done oregano oil as a supplement for a natural antibiotic & use a couple drops with my toothpaste (all natural!! ) and haven't noticed too much of a difference?? I am really intrigued with the coQ10 option I've just read? We have heart disease in my family (my father) & my oldest Sister passed BEFORE 50 & one of my younger Sisters has already had a heart attack at 38 & they put a stint in? So I'm gonna make sure I tell the other 5 Sisters about the coQ10?! My Father was only 67 when we lost him & it's scary to know I'm creeping up?! So THANKS for the info on this! I was looking for my TEETH...but got 2 birds!! I will be checkin in on this site more often😇

I agree with the unrefined “real” salt. I just became aware there is synthetic salt that does not dissolve in water and real salt that does dissolve in water. Amazing. When I use the synthetic salt, it hurts my teeth and makes them very sensitive. When I use the real salt, I don't feel the sensitivity at all. Great info. I put my real salt into my baking soda. I don't use essential oil and I've gotten used to the taste. I love how clean my mouth feels. I use a finger toothbrush as well. Even that is probably not ideal to my finger, but ….

Black Walnut

Try grinding up some dried black walnut hulls and brushing with the powder for tooth pain. I heard about the black walnut hull tincture healing teeth the day after I found out I needed another root canal. I was in a lot of pain. One site said that they brushed with the powder as well as used the tincture, and since it would be a few weeks until the tincture was ready, I decided to start brushing with the powder immediately. Within days the pain was significantly diminished; within a week I could brush in that spot with no pain; within 2 weeks I could eat hard food with no pain. It has been 4 weeks, and with regular use I still have little to no pain. No I'm ready to try the tincture and see if it heals my tooth! (Another website said that chewing on the bark of a black walnut tree would relieve a toothache, but if your tooth hurts, why would you chew bark?)
