Happy Shark Week!!
5 years ago during Shark Week, I shared about my experience using OraWellness to brush my teeth. I get asked constantly what natural products I use for oral care, so I thought I would write a follow up post.
I originally chose OraWellness because it was free of fluoride, added sweeteners and other chemicals that most commercial toothpastes have. It is a completely natural product that’s simply a blend of essential oils. It took a few times to get used to brushing my teeth with oil instead of paste, but since it leaves you with the same clean feeling and minty freshness, it was an easy switch.
Since I was so sick during pregnancy, I went over a year without a dental cleaning. I was eager to visit the dentist after my daughter was born because I knew that pregnancy can cause more rapid tooth decay with hormones inhibiting the body’s ability to fight plaque. I ended up having one small cavity (I hadn’t had one in years) and asked my dentist if we could delay the filling to see if I could heal it. She laughed at me, but agreed it could wait.
I decided to try a new product OraWellness had just released called Shine – a remineralizing powder that also helps whiten your teeth. I started using it each night right after brushing with the oil blend; you simply add a bit of powder to a wet toothbrush and brush again. It’s made of the same minerals our teeth are made of to help restore what’s lost through our diet.
1 year later, my teeth are whiter and my dentist was simply shocked to find my cavity had disappeared! Also, all signs of previous gum-disease are still completely gone.
Seeing my success using the OraWellness HealThy Mouth blend, I convinced my husband to try it (a hard sell!) and he’s now been using the product for 5 years with me. He just visited the dentist this week after not going for over 2 years and after almost always getting bad reports, they said his teeth and gums looked fantastic!
If you are experiencing any issues with your mouth / bad reports from the dentist, I highly recommend you check out the OraWellness website. They have some phenomenal resources and blog posts with practical tips on how to prevent and reverse a variety of oral health problems. I wish this post was sponsored, but it’s not. I just love and believe in this product! I share in hopes you’ll try it and experience the same healing.
