Dental powder is mixture of a variety of ingredients to replace toothpaste as a cleaning substance. It often contains baking soda, herbs like cloves, mint, or cinnamon, and an artificial sweetener for taste.
The first use of dental powder dates back thousands of years to the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Chinese and Romans. Even before Cleopatra was around, the people of Egypt kept their teeth clean with powders or pastes made from burnt eggshells mixed with pumice and the power of ox hooves’ ashes. The Chinese added herbs, salt, and ginseng to enhance the cleaning properties and taste of the powder. Greeks and Romans used crushed bones and oyster shells to make a grittier powder. To prevent bad breath, the Romans also added powdered bark and charcoal to their teeth cleaner.
Beneficial Ingredients Dental Power
The key ingredients in dental powder are what make this product very beneficial for teeth:
This clay naturally binds to toxins, helping eliminate heavy metal toxins from mercury fillings. Plus, it’s rich in minerals that are nourishing to gums and teeth.
Unrefined sea salt is helpful for healing irritated gums and contains a plethora of tooth-benefitting minerals.
Baking soda is a long-time trusted tooth cleaner. It works as a gentle abrasive to gently polish teeth and clean and whiten your smile.
Xylitol not only adds a sweeter taste to the powder, but also can benefit your oral health. It naturally stimulates saliva production, which helps protect and remineralize teeth. Stevia is another good option if you wish to use a different sweetener.
For years, cultures around the world have used sage as a natural tooth-whitener.
Cloves not only tastes great; it’s also a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient to help sore gums.
Essential oils have an endless list of benefits. Peppermint oil is a great choice for dental powder because it is naturally antiseptic and antibacterial. On top of having pain-relieving properties, it also leaves your mouth feeling minty and fresh.
