Fight Tooth Decay With Seaweed

Fight Tooth Decay With Seaweed

Agents that can help us in the fight against tooth decay are rife, and are being added to more and more toothpastes, mouthwash and a whole slew of products all aimed at preserving your chompers. From neem to tea tree oil to sea salt, olive oil and eucalyptus and mint, the host of active ingredients seems to be endless. The newest that I have come across is still in research phase, but is the extract of a bacterium called Bacillus licheniformis that lives on seaweed. The discovery of this bacterium first occurred in Newcastle University’s Marine Biology department, but soon attracted the attention of their Dental school, who have since been working on extracting the active, tooth decay fighting ingredients of this bacterium and using it in products safe for human consumption.

How To Prevent Dental Caries

How To Prevent Dental Caries

​More than 90% of adults have or will develop dental caries within their lifetime. This does not mean that dental caries or tooth decay is unpreventable or inevitable at all; the best way to prevent it is with proper nutrition. This means eating certain foods in order to replenish the nutrients that may have been dissolved or used up by your body, and not eating certain foods that are bad for your teeth.


All About Mouthwash

All About Mouthwash

​Mouthwash is extremely good for the teeth and the gums. It can get to places where you cannot reach with a toothbrush or even with dental floss, the other two members of the holy trinity of at home oral care. Mouthwash is effective at removing stains, killing bacteria and freshening the breath by drenching the soft tissues and removing the bacterial colonies living on the tooth gaps, the tongue and the periodontium. But is every mouthwash created equal? And how often should mouthwash be used for maximum effectiveness? Can you overuse mouthwash? These are some of the questions we seek to answer.
