Overview

A new way to enjoy oral hygiene. Holistic Dental Herbal tooth and gum powder formula is made entirely from natural herbal ingredients. We do not add sweeteners, fillers, chemicals, clays, abrasives, or any type of synthetic or unnatural ingredients. These herbs have been carefully selected by herbal masters for their simulating tightening and healing properties. One jar lasts at least three months and for some people as long as one year with one person using it. The tooth powder is a dark green color and has a minty kick from the corn mint plant. Enjoy the refreshing herbal experience!

Herbal medicines have been around since prehistoric times. They have been used for medicinal purposes for as long as recorded history. People from many cultures around the world use herbal medicines. They were used in Ancient Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, and Indian (Ayurvedic) medicine. Native American and African cultures use herbs in their healing rituals. So it makes sense to use herbs to clean and maintain our teeth and gums as well.

Active Ingredients of Medicinal Herbs
While conventional medicine isolates just one active ingredient, in herbal medicines, there may be hundreds or thousands of active substances to help benefit your oral health.

Tooth Powder Wild Crafted and Organic Ingredients

Herb Mint

Wildcrafted White Oak Bark Powder has a reputation for strengthening gum tissues, though it may not help with receding gums. To use as a gum powder, apply a modest amount to the inflamed areas on the gums and leave it on overnight. Continue until the problem resolves.

Organic Plantain – As a styptic it can be chewed or pounded into a paste and applied to a wound to stop minor bleeding. It is very soothing and cooling as it heals. Taken as a tea or in soup it soothes irritated mucous membranes.

Organic Peppermint – An antibacterial that provides relief and relaxation and is very refreshing.

Aloe Vera Resin – Known for its ability to heal and to soothe.

Wildcrafted Horsetail – Can be effective in strengthening nails, hair, and teeth

Wildcrafted Myrrh Gum is an ancient healing herb, its use predating the Bible. It has a long history as a sovereign remedy for gum disease. Myrrh powder makes an excellent tooth powder and can ease inflammation and gum infections. Myrrh tincture can be diluted with water and used as a mouthwash.

Organic Clove Bud – Freshens breath and prevents tooth and gum disintegration. Decreases tooth and gum inflammation.

Organic Lobelia herb and seed is medicinal "cure all" plant. Lobelia was even used as a relaxant and a poultice to relieve abscess.

Wildcrafted Goldenseal is highly valued for helping digestive problems when taken orally, as well as for strengthening the immune system. Goldenseal powder can be rubbed on the gums to treat gum disease. A powder or tincture can also be mixed with water and used as a mouthwash.

Willow Charcoal – Activated charcoal is absorbent. Activated charcoal is very porous and this allows the surface of the charcoal to attract and hold material and debris within the pores. Brushing with activated charcoal will help remove discolorations, stains (coffee, tobacco, tea, etc.), and debris and leave the surface area of the tooth clean and its appearance will be whiter.

Menthol derived from corn mint for a refreshing minty kick as well as healing and astringent properties

Organic Licorice Root contain compounds that may help prevent and treat tooth decay and gum disease. It promotes anti-cavity action, reduces plaque, and has an antibacterial effect.

Herbal Tooth Powder vs. Other Toothpaste Alternatives

Abrasive pastes and powders leave teeth with a subtle irritated or itchy feeling. When you ditch the abrasive paste, sometimes there is a side effect of teeth appearing slightly stained or translucent due to a thin natural film remaining on the teeth. This film appears when the body chemistry is somewhat out of balance. If this happens to you, using baking soda on occasion can help keep your teeth white. Holistic Dental’s Herbal Tooth Powder is minimally abrasive and its natural ingredients feel much less abrasive than even baking soda.

The Problems with Toothpaste

Today the average toothpaste is still based somewhat upon the Pepsodent® formula. Toothpastes are usually composed of 20-60 percent abrasive and polishing compounds, and 20-40 percent moisture-retaining substances such as glycerin, sorbitol, and propylene glycol. The remaining 1-2 percent consists of preservatives, sweeteners, dyes, fluoride, antibiotics, binders, detergents, and fragrances. Some of the substances added to commercial toothpastes are essentially toxic or poisonous, such as fluoride. Other substances added are not natural and generally do not support whole body health, such as industrial-made sweeteners like glycerin or xylitol. My philosophy with tooth cleaning is that if you would not eat or swallow the ingredients, you probably should not be putting it in your mouth.

Because most toothpaste is abrasive, it is easy to brush too hard and cause either tooth erosion or gum recession. One epidemiological study looking at toothpaste and tooth wear found that abrasive toothpaste definitely causes dentin wear, and if it can wear your teeth, then it can wear down your gums. Another study found that hard brushing over time increased the likelihood of receded gum sites. A medium or hard bristle toothbrush—in combination with the abrasive substances commonly found in most toothpastes—will lead to removal of enamel and gum recession in people whose body chemistry is out of balance. This makes it important to use a soft bristle brush and take care with your choice of tooth cleaning products. When people are healthy and their body is in balance, hard tooth brushing and abrasive toothpastes can cause less damage, or the damage can repair itself, leading to some skepticism or denial by the dental community regarding the harm of hard toothbrushes or abrasive pastes.
