Plants, allies of oral health!
There are some sorts of food that help us to take care of our mouth day a day, like plants whom benefit our teeth and gums.
More and more people give to oral health the importance it deserves. Although it remains much to be done and a long way to go to raise awareness in the society about the care that our mouth needs, it is true that, due to aesthetic or healthy reasons, nowadays we visit the dentist more frequently. When having any kind of oral problem, there is no one better than dentists to make a complete diagnosis and discover where it comes from, same as the way to solve it. However, there are some sorts of food that help us to take care of our mouth day a day, like plants whom benefit our teeth and gums.
Rattan, for example, is a plant with antibacterial and healing properties that can help us to look after our dental health, same as Myrrh that thanks to its healing, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, helps treating oral problems such as caries or bleeding gums. Another essential plant to take care of our teeth is Mastic, that due to its medicinal properties, it can help us to fight against halitosis (bad breath), ulcers or sores, for example.
But if there is a plant that benefits our health, it is Aloe Vera. This little bush is used to fight against a lot of health problems thanks to its high vitamin content: A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and folic acid. Apart from having a high level of amino acids and fatty acids, it also helps digestion, it benefits our cardiovascular health and it is also used to detox our body.
With all these favourable things the dental health also enjoys its properties. Aloe Vera will help as an ant-inflammatory to improve our problems with bleeding and inflamed gums, while it can also help to relive tooth pain. Its healing and disinfectant properties will help us to prevent caries and to protect the enamel of our teeth.
Of course, at Smylife we always insist in how important it is the oral hygiene to keep a healthy mouth and it is because, apart from be aware of giving our clients revolutionary and exclusive treatments, it is essential for us to let them know how to look after their mouth in their day a day in a practical and natural way.
