Of course, most tooth health has to do with dental care, and methods you can read about on websites like TopDentists.com.

Do you brush your teeth on a regular basis? Do you use mouth wash and/or floss? Did you know that for most of the people that is not enough to keep their teeth and gums healthy? Well… now you do ;) Another important alternative answer for Oral Care is Water Pressure Flossing. Some people call these oral gadgets as Water Flossers, Dental Water Jets, or Oral Irrigators.
How do I know that Water Flossing is important? Well, I’d say there are two sure answers, proven Medical studies and my own experience. Water Jet Flossing is clinically proven to be up to 93 percent more effective than typical string flossing. I don’t know about you but to me that is more than enough of difference to consider using Oral Irrigators. There were many times when I brushed my teeth, string flossed, and used a mouth-wash. Then when I used a Jet Water Flosser I had so much left-over pieces of food come out that it impressed me every time.
Before my dentist deep cleaned my teeth I had lots of problems with my Oral Health. My gums would bleed from even a light brushing, string flossing, water flossing, and mouth-washing. My gums kept on getting easily infected by some left-over food that got stuck between my teeth which led to some swelling. My mouth would horribly and embarrassingly stink. Around some of my teeth I had some kind of dark crusty stuff growing. My mouth had some serious problems Periodontal disease (or Periodontitis) and Gingivitis. Continue reading →
I have been wanting to put together an article specifically like this where I could provide my readers with not just information but with very useful and healthy products too. This might make your research easier and probably save you some time and money while deciding on which toothpaste to buy. All of these Toothpastes and Tooth Gels are at Amazon website, all you need to do is click on a specific image below and the link will take you to that exact product. Yep, I’ll get some kind of commission from Amazon if you’ll buy any of these Oral Care Products.
When I look for Toothpaste products, I make sure that there is No Fluoride, because Fluoride is more poisonous than the Lead and just slightly less poisonous than the Arsenic. Also, I like to stay away from SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), because it is a very corrosive ingredient and is very harmful to skin and hair. SLS is usually put in hair and skin care products like soaps and shampoos, but I never actually seen it in oral care products. If you care about the health of your and your children’s teeth, then I really recommend for you to make sure that your family consumes Xylitol through gums, mouth rinses, tooth gels, and through toothpastes. Xylitol is a Naturally occurring Carbohydrate and is used for a long time now as a Natural Sweetener. As far as people know it is really good for our teeth, but it is very bad or even deadly for pets. For People – Xylitol Helps keep neutral pH in the mouth, Xylitol Prevents Bacteria from sticking to the teeth, Xylitol protects from tooth decay, Xylitol stops acid attacks, Xylitol decreases the Plaque amount in your mouth, and finally Xylitol repairs damaged Enamel on your teeth.

Many people really like to drink carbonated cola, pop, soda, or soft drink. An honest dentist will tell you to stay away from dark sweet pop, because it destroys and demineralizes the enamel which protects our teeth. Did you know that some teenagers drink as many as twelve pop cans per day, sounds like someone is addicted. Did you know that sugar is considered a drug and that is why people get so addicted to sweets and not only to pop. The carbonated cola drinks extremely promote aging. Most of the soda pop provides very lethal, toxic, poisonous, and venomous effects for our bodies. Did you know that because of the high sugar levels in soft drinks the studies linked obesity, osteoporosis, toth decay, and heart diseases to these harmful drinks. Just remember this, drinking pop soft drinks extremely promotes many kinds of diseases in your body because it destroys your immune system, and we all know that the immune system is like our body’s shield from most or even all of the diseases out there. So if you destroy your body shield then you will start getting sick a lot more often from very simple and little colds, flu, bacterias, and other dangerous free radicals. An average carbonated cola, or pop, or soda, or soft drink contains these ingredients:
- Caffeine (dangerous)
- Fluoride (deadly)
- Sugar (dangerous)
Xylitol is a natural sweetener. Xylitol is natural because it is already inside of our bodies. Our bodies actually produce Xylitol from fruits, berries, mushrooms, lettuce and other foods. Did you know that there is actually a gum that is really good for your teeth? Next time you’ll look for a gum to buy and chew, try looking at the ingredients and make sure that there is no other kind of sugar except the Xylitol. Actually, clinical studies have shown that if you chew xylitol gum or eat xylitol candies on a daily basis then it may help you reduce the risk of tooth decay and improve overall oral health. I heard a bunch of stories where people were told by their doctors that there is major problems with their teeth and some serious work needs to be done, but some of those people started chewing xylitol gum daily and then when they came back to the doctor, they totally surprised their doctors. Also, there are many dentists that really recommend using xylitol products daily, because then your will improve your oral health dramatically. The picture shows one of the awesome gums out there that can promote the health of your teeth. We use this gum from Spry company and we recommend for you too, to use this instead of other gums with bad sweeteners in them.
