Most of us are concerned with having white teeth, but have you thought about how close you are to having gingivitis or periodontal disease? Dark and moist, your mouth is a prime location for germs and bacteria to grow out of control. Without proper daily care, your mouth, gums, and teeth are headed straight for bacteria heaven.
Taking the time to have proper oral care can prevent many oral health concerns as well as other health risks. It can prevent cavities, tartar, gingivitis (an infection of the gums caused by plaque), and more serious gum diseases such as periodontitis.
To get started, you need a good, reliable tooth brush. Many dentists encourage brushers to use a soft-bristled brush for removing plaque and other debris from the teeth. It is also suggested to use a small-headed brush because it can more easily reach all areas of the mouth.
Next, you need top-of-the-line toothpaste—and Young Living has exactly that! In fact, we offer three different types of toothpastes. Our most gentle toothpaste, Thieves® Dentarome, is generally recommended for children. It has all the benefits of Thieves without being overpowering. For adults, Thieves Dentarome Plus Toothpaste is a great option. It’s a stronger version of the original Dentarome toothpaste because it contains a larger concentration of thymol and eugenol. And for those interested in having a clean mouth with white teeth, Thieves Dentarome Ultra is a perfect choice! It contains the whitening agent papain, an anti-stain enzyme derived from papayas.
Adding any one of our Thieves toothpastes to your daily oral care will help your mouth stay clean, fresh, and bacteria-free!
