21 Nov 3 Non-Toxic Dental Products You Can Use At Home
As a holistic dental practice, our job at Kozlow and Rowell is to care for your teeth and gums in a healthy and toxic-free way. In addition, we pay attention to your overall well-being, which starts at the mouth. This is why it’s so important to have good oral hygiene.
We have put together a list of non-toxic dental products that you can use at home to naturally care for your mouth in between your dentist visits.
1. Fluoride-Free Toothpaste
Holistic dentists generally recommend avoiding fluoride dental products because of their potentially negative impacts. This is why we suggest fluoride-free, natural kinds of toothpaste.
The benefits of using non-toxic toothpaste include removing buildup by physically cleaning the teeth. It can help to whiten teeth while using ingredients like calcium phosphates and essential oils to focus on any bad bacteria. Another advantage of fluoride-free toothpaste is that patients will notice that their mouth feels fresher.
2. Natural Mouthwash
Most mouthwash varieties include synthetic additives or ingredients, but natural mouthwashes use natural ingredients that are better for your mouth and your body. Non-toxic mouthwash can be used even for patients who suffer from sensitivity, thanks to its gentle formula.
The essential oils used in natural mouthwash have antibacterial properties, preventing problems such as gum disease. Alcohol mouthwashes can leave the mouth feeling dry, increasing the chance of developing gum disease and cavities over time. Non-toxic mouthwash, on the other hand, is effective and doesn’t cause the mouth to dry.
3. Natural Floss
Traditional floss contains toxins such as PFAS, whereas non-toxic floss uses natural ingredients that are safe for your mouth. Not only do they benefit our patients but also the planet, as natural floss is compostable and environmentally friendly. This means fewer carbon emissions are used in manufacturing the natural ingredients. It also allows patients to incorporate a more sustainable solution into their zero-waste lifestyle because non-toxic floss is all-natural.
