My dental health is better than it has ever been. My mouth feels cleaner and healthier thanks to all-natural products like Dirty Mouth Toothpowder. But, it hasn’t always felt this way…

As a child, I wasn’t a healthy eater. I used to go to the candy shop with my friends every single day. Because of this, I ended up with cavities left and right.

When I went to get cavities filled, I didn’t get numbing ointment or Novocaine. The terror of suffering through the painful process made me hate the dentist. Not just through my childhood, but even well into my thirties.

As an adult, my teeth were always really sensitive. Drinking hot liquids, like my morning coffee, was not a great experience. They were also really weak. I once broke two teeth within three weeks of each other.

My gums bled when I tried to floss. And I didn’t want to floss because my gums were too sensitive. I had bad breath more often than not. But I went along with it, because I assumed everyone usually had bad breath.

I brushed twice a day with toothpaste and ate a healthy diet. And yet my dental health was getting worse. I didn’t understand what was happening.

Like everyone else, I always followed the advice of the American Dental Association. They insisted I use a toothpaste that had fluoride in it. Fluoride equals healthy teeth and gums to the ADA. But my teeth never got better.

Finding a new way 

When my daughter was two years old, one of her molars came in with a natural cavity in it. The dentist said, “I’m sorry, but she’s going to lose this molar within the next year. We can put a temporary filling in it and hope for the best, but chances are, she’s going to lose this tooth early.”

That’s when I started thinking about all of my dental health struggles. What was I going to do for my daughter? I had to find something different.

I could either continue to mindlessly do what I had been doing for decades and hope for the best, or I could try something different.

I started researching and found Weston Price. Throughout his 25-year dental career, he studied traditional diets and their effects on dental health. He found that people in third world countries had pretty good dental health.

His studies found that the soil in which their food grows contains important minerals. By contrast, US foods are rich with processed substances. Even our organic food is grown in soil that lacks minerals.

The easy solution would be to take a supplement, right? However, you can’t take a supplement to improve your dental health. It doesn’t work that way with your teeth and gums.

The only way to improve your dental health is to put the minerals you need right inside your mouth. There are only two ways to do this: (1) eat mineral-rich foods or (2) brush your teeth with products that have minerals.

These minerals will stop your teeth from demineralizing, and actually help them begin to heal.

Demineralization is the loss of minerals from your enamel and dentin. (These make up the top surface of a tooth.) Teeth are porous and can absorb or lose what makes them strong. So if you’re losing more minerals than you’re replacing, you can end up with a cavity or needing a root canal. Although my daughter’s situation was unique, I wanted to stop the process of demineralization.

What jumped out to me from Price’s studies was the mineral-rich soil. Could brushing with dirt actually help improve my dental health? It sounded outlandish, however… That’s when I found tooth powder.

Toothpaste gets a radical makeover 

If you’re going to spend two minutes a day brushing your teeth, you shouldn’t be brushing to clean them. You should be brushing your teeth to fortify them — to get the minerals back where you need them.

Everything started to click when I began thinking that way.

I realized that the ADA was at fault. They decided the best way to market their products was to convince us that we needed fluoride. They didn’t tell us that brushing with toothpaste could cause toxicity in adults and children.

So what did I do? I got rid of all the “toxipaste” in the house. And we started brushing with tooth powder. I mixed a few clays, some baking soda and essential oils to create a simple but effective cleanser.

The tooth powder is a healthier, more natural option that is free of toxins and chemicals. And the best part? The clays contain the minerals our teeth need to stay strong and healthy.

Remember when the dentist said my daughter’s tooth wouldn’t last beyond the age of three? She is now ten years old and still has the molar.

We didn’t promote tooth decay with toxipaste and a sugary, processed diet. Instead, we taught her good eating habits and made sure she was brushing with better products. This keeps her natural, healthy biome in place and promotes good dental heath.

Biomes and Bacteria

The natural biome in your mouth is very important. Good bacteria in your mouth fights off bad bacteria that enters it. It also ensures healthy gum tissue. If the biome is destroyed, things get bad.

Bleeding gums can lead to inflammation and disease. They also allow any kind of virus or bacteria to easily enter your body. This could cause more serious internal health issues later on. So a healthy oral biome is very important.

A good biome also affects saliva production. Your saliva helps wash your teeth by removing the acids left from foods. It’s natural protection.

By brushing with commercial toothpaste filled with fluoride and other chemicals, we destroy our natural biome. Same with mints and chewing gum. Traditional dental care products seem to go overboard on cleaning and freshening up our mouth.

One other problematic product is sensitive toothpaste. Toothpaste for sensitive teeth is formulated to lessen the pain caused by hot and cold foods and even triggers like inhaling cold winter air.

Sensitive toothpaste is made with glycerin. It acts as a band-aid on demineralized areas of your teeth. However, this shield also prevents minerals from being absorbed.

Dentists are fine with this solution because it gets you in their chair. They don’t mind charging you hundreds of dollars to get any and every procedure done. So dentists keep pushing toothpaste on families.

The best natural solution

In my 30s, I was facing major dental repairs. But since brushing with tooth powder, I haven’t had a devastating reason to see a dentist. The pain I used to experience is a thing of the past.

When you start brushing with tooth powder, you’ll remove lingering glycerin. Once that “band-aid” is off, you’ll start to replace minerals that have been lost. As your teeth become healthier and stronger, imagine the money you’ll save with fewer dentist visits. (Note — I’m not saying to never see your dentist again. Stick with your regular visits.)

Dirty Mouth Toothpowder from Primal Life Organics has changed how I feel about going to the dentist. It’s also changed the minds of hundreds of people who have switched to Dirty Mouth Toothpowder.

Their dentists are also in awe. They can’t believe what their teeth look like after brushing with tooth powder. They’re cleaner, have less plaque and look brighter. Their gums are no longer bleeding. All from tooth powder — not toothpaste.

Are you ready to make the switch?

Throw out your tube of toxipaste. And start brushing with all-natural tooth powder.
