OraMD’s tooth oil combines almond, peppermint, and spearmint essential oils to kill unwanted mouth bacteria. The oil reaches every crevice of the mouth, even in between the teeth to reach all areas of the gums. It is free of insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, fluoride, abrasives, and more.
Why Natural Toothpaste?
OraMD Tooth Oil contains natural products that work. A 2013 study found that mint essential oils may increase salivation, and therefore eliminate bad breath, and the oil was effective in eradicating unwanted pathogens from the mouth1. In addition, tooth oil does not contain dangerous ingredients, like fluoride. While fluoride can improve oral health and decrease tooth decay, toothpaste and mouthwash ingestion remain the number one cause of fluoride poisoning, which can cause vomiting and in severe cases, comas or death2. According to the Encyclopedia of Toxicology, the United States alone experiences 20,000 cases of fluoride toxicity yearly3.
Benefits for the Mouth
Tooth oil keeps the mouth and breath feeling clean and fresh for hours. It may help prevent cavities by removing plaque and fortifying the gums. It can also kill bacteria that may cause gingivitis and other oral maladies. The peppermint oil specifically targets and eases tooth pain and canker sores.
To use tooth oil, all one must do is place 4-6 drops on a toothbrush and brush. Because the oil is all-natural it is safe to swallow. You can also apply the oil to your mouth directly without the use of a brush.
