Remineralizing Tooth Powder Recipe
Make a sustainable, homemade tooth powder with bentonite clay, calcium powder, baking soda, herbs and spices.
How do you remineralize your teeth?
Minerals such as calcium and phosphate help make up tooth enamel and prevent tooth decay and cavities.
As you age, a sugary and acidic diet along with excess bacterial in the mouth drives tooth mineral loss. Unfortunately, once the enamel or bone are gone, there’s no way to get them back without replacing the tooth entirely.
The good news is that lifestyle changes and home remedies can actually help replace lost minerals before tooth decay occurs. This process is known as remineralization.
This remineralizing tooth powder recipe supports a healthy mouth without the artificial ingredients of commercial toothpastes.
