7 Steps to Healthy Teeth and Gums

7 Steps to Healthy Teeth and Gums


Hi, I’m Jordan Rubin. Welcome to Ancient Medicine Today. We’re going to talk about a topic that’s important
to everyone, at least if you have teeth. And I can tell you this much. This information has got teeth, meaning, it
is going to absolutely work to transform your teeth and gums. Unfortunately, your oral health is often neglected. But if you will take some simple steps on
a daily basis, develop good oral hygiene, I believe that you can remain cavity-free
and not have to do some dental procedures that are invasive, painful, and even dangerous
to your health such as root canals, implants, etc. We want to keep our teeth. We want to keep them healthy because as your
mouth goes, your whole body goes. So let’s get started, seven steps to healthy
teeth and gums. And as always, if you’re loving this information,
click your Like button and press that Share button to let people know that there is a
way to naturally transform and maintain the health of your mouth. Number one, massaging the gums. Now, folks, this is really, really important
and I like to do this with a vibrating toothbrush. Vibrating toothbrushes help to shake off plaque. They’re easy to get, brands such as Sonicare
and others. I use it. I also love the fact that it has a built-in
timer. I don’t know about you but I lose track of
time and you want to brush your teeth for approximately two minutes. You want to make sure that you’re massaging
your gums as you do it. Now, you can certainly massage your gums with
your fingers as long as they’re clean, maybe put some essential oil on it. But massaging your gums daily, multiple times
with a vibrating toothbrush is a great way to get rid of plaque and make those dental
visits less painful. Number two, flossing. Simple, right? Not so simple. In fact, I admit it. I didn’t floss when I was a child or teenager. And I have a family history of receding gums. So if I look at my mom’s side of the family,
not great oral health. One of the reasons I didn’t floss was the
picture on the screen. I don’t like to tie the thing around the . . . anyway,
it’s hard. I think it’s hard. I like those little floss pickers where your
single application. I do it twice a day. It is really good because if you floss and
you’re bleeding, you know that your gums have issues. I have proven, personally, that even if your
gums recede, you can rebuild gum tissue by following this information, have whiter teeth,
fresher breath, better overall oral health, and transform the health of your whole body. Number three, clove oil. Clove oil has eugenol. Clove oil is antiseptic and it’s healing. We know that if we have tooth pain, dabbing
clove oil there is a great remedy. I like to take clove oil and dilute it with
water or oil, as we’ll talk about in a moment, and swish it around my mouth and then spit
it out. You can swallow a little clove oil. It’s really, really good for you but it’s
one of the best oral health topicals known to man. So make sure to get clove essential oil, I
recommend organic, in your regimen. What I also do is on my toothbrush or toothpaste,
drop one or two drops of clove oil each and every time I brush. Number three, and probably my favorite, oil
pulling. If you haven’t heard of this, it is one of
the best ways to maintain proper oral health. What do you do? You take oil. And in the Ayurvedic tradition, they would
use sesame oil but a lot of people today use coconut oil as pictured. You take a half a teaspoon. You swish it around your mouth. Make sure to work it through your teeth and
around your gums. It will naturally whiten your teeth and help
remove toxins in your mouth. But be advised. Spit out the resulting liquid because after
a while, it grows and grows and grows. Spit it out because there’s lots of debris
that you do not want to re-ingest. Oil pulling is best done once or twice a day
for 5 to 20 minutes at a time. I highly recommend it. You can even combine oil, such as coconut,
with essential oils such as clove and make that your oil pulling. The fifth step to healthy teeth and gums because
everybody needs them, is using silver. I like to use silver liquid and I like to
swish it in my mouth, and in this case, swallow it. It is antimicrobial and kills some of the
germs that cause plaque. I recommend consuming about a teaspoon of
colloidal silver or ionic silver or silver hydrosol one to three times a day. You can find it at your local health food
store. There are some great brands, but make sure
that you do that one to three times a day. Unlike oil pulling, you let it sit in your
mouth, under your tongue about 30 seconds, then you swallow. Make sure to sort of swish it around as well. Helps with oral infections. Number six, CoQ10. CoQ10 is a nutrient that is very important
for gum health. Take CoQ10 up to 200 milligrams a day in either
ubiquinone or ubiquinol form for great gum health. It is really powerful. There are also some herbs that we didn’t mention. Atractylodes is a really good herb. Traditional Chinese herbs are great for gum
health. CoQ10 is really solid as a beneficial compound
for your gums. And last but not least, oral probiotics. Now, be advised. There are many probiotics for the gut, soil-based
organisms, saccharomyces boulardii, lactobacillus plantarum. But there are specific probiotics for oral
health and you can type in “oral health probiotics” in a search. There’s even oral probiotics that can whiten
your teeth, that can reduce germs such as strep mutans which cause cavities and caries,
and there’s even oral probiotics that reduce the incidence of strep. Key is, you need a probiotics to make contact
with your mouth. You either use a lozenge or swish some powder
and you’ve got it. Now keep this in mind. Acidophilus, which is a powerful probiotic,
loves acid and creates acid. That is not something you want to swish around
in your mouth. You don’t want a lot of sour elements in your
mouth because that can begin to dissolve dentin and some of the hard tissue within your teeth. But specific oral health probiotics have been
studied to reduce cavities, whiten your teeth, and freshen your breath while also improving
your overall health. Folks, all of us have teeth and gums and we

5 to 20 minutes twice a day, swish it around your mouth. Spit it out when you’re done. You’ll love it. Silver, whether it’s colloidal, ionic, or
silver hydrosol, one teaspoon one to three times a day. Thirty seconds, hold it in your mouth then
swallow for great oral health. CoQ10’s a great compound that you can consume
in supplement form, 50 to 200 milligrams a day for your gums. Last but not least, oral probiotics to help
