A healthy smile makes the best first impression. It’s the most effective and natural beauty trick, and an indication that you are healthy in all dimensions of wellness. To keep our pearly whites shining their brightest, and feeling great and fresh, it’s important to visit your holistic dentist for regular checkups, and develop a good oral routine with great tools, like these:
Clean Tooth Paste
There are way too many questionable and downright dangerous ingredients in most commercial toothpastes (like propylene glycol which is an active component in anti-freeze!). We have shared safe and effective alternatives for the whole family.

A Better Chew
For many, there is something satisfying about chewing gum. Looking at the positives, maybe you believe you are working your jaw muscles (linked to improved memory and increased brain power) and freshening your breath. As with any packaged product, be sure to read the ingredient list to make sure you’re not popping something with artificial substances, like plastic, aspartame, and BHT. If you want to chew gum (we are not suggesting you do!), consider what’s better.
