Study: The Extensive Use of Mouthwashes for Oral Hygiene is Not Safe

A study pitting six essential oils from spice plants against synthetic oral cleansing and teeth whitening products like mouthwashes showed that the essential oils were the safest and most effective to use, according to Springerplus. Not only that, the synthetic products cause “very expressive and severe” DNA damage to human cheek cells, while the oils effectively protect against such damage.

This groundbreaking study, which also showed adverse effects of synthetic products on teeth, gums and mucous membranes, should be a wakeup call for anyone using commercial teeth whiteners and toothpaste, especially because one of the major components causing these problems is hydrogen peroxide — something most people believe is natural and safe!

Noteworthy, too, is that the authors said frequent use of these products increased the danger of mouth diseases. This underscores the importance of caring for your mouth and teeth like you do the rest of your body, and avoiding harsh chemicals, even when you believe they’re safe. This begins with throwing out anything with fluoride in it. Fluoride can cause dental fluorosis as well as reduce IQ scores in children.

Many toothpastes also contain other toxic chemicals such as triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, artificial sweeteners, propylene glycol and diethanolamine, all of which can come with their own potential risks to your health. You can avoid these chemicals by reading labels and not purchasing toothpastes with these chemicals in them, but you can also make your own toothpaste quite easily with coconut oil, a proven natural antibiotic and cleanser.

When you’re done and in-between brushings, you can practice oil-pulling, which helps reduce plaque and improves gum health.
