(NaturalNews) The healing power of herbs is no secret. However, our knowledge about the multiplicity of ways they can be used to heal and restore the body is constantly expanding. For instance, we know that certain herbs can have a profound effect on the health of our teeth and gums. Herbal tooth powders (which can be bought or made at home) provide a potent combination of herbs that can restore your dental health.

Herbs That Heal Gums and Teeth

The list of herbs that can heal gums and teeth is a long one. But here is a short list of some of the most common herbs used in herbal tooth powders to restore the health of your teeth and gums:

Myrrh gum. This is known for its ability to heal gum infections and promote the health of your gums.

White oak bark. This extract is especially useful for calming swollen tissues in the mouth and treating gum infections.

Tea tree oil. In one study, a group that used a tea tree oil tooth gel experienced reduced gingivitis and bleeding compared with the placebo group.

Goldenseal. May help reduce gum disease symptoms and improve gum health.

Calendula. This is very effective for reducing gum pain and inflammation. Calendula also has antiseptic properties that reduce pathogenic bacteria in the mouth.

How to Use an Herbal Tooth Powder

You can make your own herbal tooth powder at home using a combination of healing herbs, or you can buy a pre-made herbal powder specially formulated to benefit gums and teeth. Both of these options are generally inexpensive and simple to use:

1. The easiest way to use herbal tooth powder is to use it in place of toothpaste. Simply moisten your toothbrush and then dab it in the herbal powder. Brush as usual and rinse thoroughly.

2. You can also enhance the benefits of herbal tooth powder by massaging it into your gums with your finger and allowing it to sit for a few minutes before brushing and rinsing.

Users often notice reduced inflammation and pain right away when they start using herbal tooth powder. With consistent use over time, benefits are even more pronounced.

To improve the health of your gums from the inside out, you may want to try boosting your vitamin C intake, as vitamin C has been shown to improve gum health and discourage periodontal disease.
