Morning Breath…. Can It Cause Cavities??

Ever wonder why you wake up with the dreaded morning breath?  Can bad breath cause bad teeth (cavities)?? Even kids wake up with bad breath… which puts them at risk for cavities! Oral hygiene may have nothing to do with your bad breath.. It may be caused by the overgrowth of bad bacteria. Yes, bad bacteria causes bad breath.

Even kids have morning breath.  That puts them at risk for cavities.  Why??  Read on…

I did my research, and with my background in nursing, I believe there is a relationship between bad breath and cavities. Are you (or your kids) at risk?

Here’s the problem… according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research:

  • 42% of children 2 to 11 have had dental caries in their primary teeth
  • 21% of children 6 to 11 have had dental caries in their permanent teeth.
  • 92% of adults 20 to 64 have had dental caries in their permanent teeth.
  • Adults 20 to 64 have an average of 3.28 decayed or missing permanent teeth and 13.65 decayed and missing permanent surfaces.

Everybody does it…

Dirty Mouth Toothpowder naturally cleans, whitens and strengthens the teeth.  Kid friendly, parent approved!

During your sleep, your body naturally detoxifies.  This process also happens in your mouth.  Bad breath happens when your natural bacteria is destroyed and “bad” bacteria take over. The last thing most of us do before we go to bed is brush our teeth.  Unfortunately, the harsh chemicals in commercial toothpaste (sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, PEG-12, artificial sugars and more) can kill your natural, protective oral bacteria and cause an overgrowth of bad, harmful bacteria, which can lead to demineralization of the enamel, cavities, inflammation of the gum tissue and infections of the gum tissue.  Gum tissue that is broken down, inflamed and bleeding can be a portal for germs, bacteria and viruses to enter the body and cause even more harm internally, including inflammation and disease.

What are cavities?

Cavities are a type of infection caused by bad bacteria in your mouth that destroys the outer layer of your tooth- the enamel.  Over time, if not brushed away, this bacteria can form a sticky residue called “plaque” that sits on the enamel.  Plaque is more difficult to remove and gradually dissolves the minerals on the surface of the teeth.  This results in small pits that get larger over time.  Furthermore, commercial toothpaste that contains glycerin can leave a coating on the teeth which prevents minerals from coming in contact with the teeth and remineralization from happening.  This process leads to “soft spots,” sensitive teeth and ultimately the development of cavities.

Take a look at the ingredients of a popular toothpaste. Notice there are no minerals in this toothpaste to strengthen the teeth.  Furthermore, the harsh ingredients can destroy your protective bacteria, cause gum tissue inflammation and damage your enamel.  These harmful and toxic ingredients can also enter your body through your gum tissue and cause a plethora of internal damage as well.  

  • Active Ingredient:  Sodium fluoride 0.24% (0.14% w/v fluoride ion).
  • Inactive Ingredients:  Sorbitol, water, hydrated silica, PEG-12, cellulose gum, sodium lauryl sulfate, flavor, sodium saccharin, mica, titanium dioxide, D&C yellow no. 10, FD&C blue no.1.

Now, look at the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rating and concerns of the most common ingredients found in commercial toothpaste- the higher the rating, the more toxic the ingredient is to the body.

So… what can we do to prevent the overgrowth of bad bacteria and cavities?

I created a solution that is 100% natural and non-toxic.  I researched this topic when my daughter was two and a half years old because her new molar had a defect in it.  The dentist placed a temporary filling in it but felt the tooth would need to be pulled within a year. 

As a concerned mom, I started investigating dental health and toothpaste.  What I discovered led me to understand that regular toothpaste may clean the teeth (and kill all good bacteria in the mouth), but will never provide the minerals the teeth need to remain strong.  Using regular toothpaste, my daughters tooth would surely never survive.  So, I made it my mission to create a completely natural product that would not only clean the teeth, but strengthen them as well.

I discovered clay.  It contains the exact minerals your enamel loses during the process of demineralization.  If you can replace those lost minerals, the possibility of “healing” the teeth could occur.  Seven years later, my daughter’s tooth is still intact… and so is that original temporary filling the dentist swore she would lose in six months.  What I created… I now share with you!

What Did I Create?  Dirty Mouth Toothpowder… yes, it’s a powder: 100% concentrated mineral powder.  More effective than brushing with toxic toothpaste. Safe for kids and adults.

Dirty Mouth Toothpowder is made of a proprietary blend of three mineral-rich clays that will help:

  • Gently clean your teeth
  • Naturally whiten your teeth
  • Remineralize and strengthen your teeth
  • Detoxify the gum tissue
  • Naturally freshen your breath

Dirty Mouth toothpowder’s blend of clays contains the exact minerals your teeth need to stay strong and healthy.  Clay is the perfect solution for natural dental health because clay:

  • naturally and quickly pulls toxins from tissues and expels them from the body
  • naturally and gently cleans and pulls discolorations from your teeth leaving them cleaner and whiter
  • is mineral rich and can provide the minerals to replace those lost from your enamel
  • is non-toxic and safe for children and adults
  • does not destroy your natural bacteria
  • helps prevent the formation of plaque

Every day, we lose minerals from our teeth.  Our diet and soil are both depleted of minerals, so it should not surprise us that our dental health is declining and our teeth are more at risk of cavities.  Dirty Mouth Toothpowder contains mineral-rich clay that puts the exact minerals your teeth need right where you need them, every time you brush, helping to improve the strength of your teeth and rebuild your enamel.

Fresher Breath?  That too is possible because Dirty Mouth Toothpowder does not contain any harsh ingredients (SLS, Triclosan, artificial sweeteners) that will destroy the natural, protective bacteria that protect your gums and teeth.  Your natural bacteria help prevent the overgrowth of “bad bacteria” that causes bad breath and gum disease.  Loss of your protective bacteria can also lead to the breakdown of your enamel.

Dirty Mouth toothpowder naturally helps create stronger, whiter and fresher smiles made from 100% natural ingredients.  It’s clay-based because, without minerals, your teeth could demineralize and breakdown.

Dirty Mouth Toothpowder: Increasing the integrity of your smile… naturally!

Want More Whitening POWER?  We added charcoal to our BLACK formula.  Charcoal is porous and strongly binds to discolorations and toxins which leaves your teeth whiter and brighter 100% naturally.  At Primal Life Organics, black is the new white!

Wait a minute… what about my gums?

I also created Boost Gum Serum because the health of our gum tissue is directly related to the health of our teeth and our internal organs. Boost improves blood flow to your gum tissue, reduces inflammation, contains antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiseptic ingredients, and more… 100% naturally.

If you thought periodontitis was only a “kid’s thing” you need to keep reading…

Because while we know this serious oral infection can cause tooth decay or even loss, recent studies suggest oral infections can also contribute to chronic inflammation, a condition increasingly associated with the progression of diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, pneumonia and even low birth weight children.

Which means maintaining dental health is not only an important daily activity, it’s CRUCIAL to significantly reducing the bacteria associated with chronic inflammation. And when you want to take a big step towards good dental health, you want our Dirty Mouth Boost…

Dirty Mouth™ Boost contains 11 essential oils specifically formulated to support all aspects of oral health, including the teeth, gums and mucous membranes. This mix of essential oils contains numerous properties beneficial for dental heath, including:

  • Antimicrobials
  • Anti-inflammatories
  • Antifungals
  • Antivirals
  • Antibacterials
  • Antiseptics
  • Astringents
  • Analgesics
  • Even a natural Local anesthetic!

Plus, Dirty Mouth™ Boost can also help relieve symptoms associated with fungal and viral infections (cold sores) as well as gingivitis and denture stomatitis (inflammation of the mouth) to give you more comfort and less pain while healing.

  1. My son tried the natural tooth powder, immediately spit it out and begged me to never make him try it again. A child flavor could be the trick to getting him to use it. Have you collected data to find a common child-friendly flavor? If not, please consider this.

      Yes, we make a cool orange for kids. Most kids feel the peppermint is “too spicy”. We are going to release a Sweet Bubblegum (and sweet peppermint and sweet spearmint) in soon so look for that. It is sweetened with Monk Fruit- and kids LOVE it!
