Did you know
that every human mouth harbors over 700 species of bacteria? It is true, and the population is only higher in our gut! There is a symbiotic relationship among the microorganisms in our oral cavity. If pathogenic bacteria take over, we get infection and disease. Our mouth is where digestion begins, so this microflora is vital in maintaining oral and overall health.

Tea tree oil is strongly antiseptic and effective against a broad range of bacterial and fungal infections. Because it is strongly germicidal, the oil is used in dentistry. Tea Tree leaf oil is a natural cure for foul breath and contains anti-plaque chemicals.
This oil is ideal for mouthwash because it can fight bacteria, prevent tooth decay, and soothe bleeding gums. Tea tree leaf oil is quite effective for periodontal, fungal, and viral diseases.

One of the special ingredients in my new toothpaste! Due to the presence of lauric acid in coconut oil, this toothpaste works wonders against various oral and systemic ailments and bacterial and fungal contaminations.
Lauric acid helps prevent dental cavities and improve oral health because of its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Calcium carbonate. CaCO3 is the chemical formula. Carbon. Oxygen. Calcium. Calcium carbonate is a gentle abrasive that aids in removing plaque safely and softly polishes away surface stains while brushing. One 2019 study in Japan confirmed that toothpaste containing calcium carbonate has a greater ability to remove plaque than does a toothpaste without.
Kaolin Clay (Kaolinite)
Kaolinite is used in manufacturing dental medications used to treat swelling and ulcers in the mouth and to halt bleeding and swelling inside the mouth induced by radioactivity treatments. Kaolinite has antimicrobial properties—especially relevant in dentistry, as periodontitis is a bacterial infection. Kaolinite’s use as an anti-inflammatory in poultices is of particular importance in oral surgery and periodontology, as it may reduce gum bleeding.
Cinnamon bark oil shows significant antibacterial activity against various oral pathogens linked with dental cavities, periodontal disorders, and tooth infections.
One recent study showed that a polyphenolic cinnamon fraction might benefit oral health by lowering Candida albicans’ ability to build biofilm and adhere to oral epithelial cells, a pathogenic fungus that causes oral candidiasis. Interestingly, other studies have found that cinnamon components, primarily essential oils extracted from the bark, exhibit anti-bacterial properties against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative oral bacteria.
Clinical studies have shown that clove oil treats tooth discomfort and bad breath and aids in preventing gum disease. Clove oil also has a natural tendency to inhibit the growth of bacteria, aiding in the treatment of mouth and throat infections.

These compounds also show benefits in dental care. They are, effective against a wide range of pathogens, suggesting a promising treatment option for periodontal disease.
