General Dental Health 

Gargling or rinsing the mouth with water every time after eating or even drinking is the best dental care. Food particles stay and feed the bacteria in mouth if the mouth is not cleaned after eating or drinking.

It is a common observation that most of us do not wash the mouth after eating with spoon or fork in contrast to eating food with hands. The Indian tradition of eating with hands encourages (no other way) to wash hands and also the mouth after eating.

Eat with hands and wash your mouth well after food is the best way to keep the dentist away.

1. Tooth ache:

Very effective remedy- Uni5 Root Canal cure method: Drop few drops of neem oil on the affected tooth and then put one tablespoonful of organic turmeric powder and then bite that powder so that the powder seeps inside the crevises of the teeth. It completely seals it...go to bed and bare the pain for a few minutes. If intolerable take a pain killer before doing this. Do this for 3 to 10 nights. Any type of infection goes away. Several people have tried and works like magic. Even root canal infections also goes away with this. Please share this Uni5-root-canal method to all. 

 

Other remedies: Boil a few leaves of Elephantopus in coconut oil and apply on aching tooth, it will immediately relieve pain and prevent tooth decay.

Elephantopus scaber, popularly known as "elephant's foot" is an important medicinal plant, in Kerala. Its flattened rosette of leaves resembles the

 imprint of an elephant's foot. Therefore in Malayalam, it is known as anachuvadi' (Ana=elephant, Chuvadi=foot). See Picture here.

Preparation of medicine: Take a handful of leaves of the plant. Wash it and then grind it with one glassful of water. Boil the extract with half a glass of coconut oil (use good quality unrefined coconut oil). Boil until the mixture reduces to one third of the volume ( half a glass). The mixture will be slightly green in color.

How to use:

Take come in mouth/Keep mouth closed, until mouth is full with saliva. Make sure to have contact where the teeth is bad/decayed. You can spit out the saliva. Do this before going to bed.

2. Tooth ache: Take a teaspoon of organic Turmeric and mix neem oil just to make enough wet. And then keep it on the tooth that is aching. If it is kept overnight , the tooth ache will go. This is very very effective and non-irritant and controls tooth ache and infection immediately. Using an filler , drop five drops of neem oil on the tooth and immediately add turmeric powder on it and keep the tooth tightly for atleast 30 minutes or sleep like that.

Bleeding Gums

Vitamin C would be lacking and so eat regularly C rich foods like oranges, kiwi strawberries, guava, lemon etc.

Chewing a piece of fresh coconut and one baby carrot everyday morning after brushing the teeth prevents bleeding.

Gargling mouth with unrefined sesame oil for 10 to 15 minutes everyday morning after brushing teeth is good. Do not swallow the oil instead spit out and rinse mouth with water.

The above suggestions also strengthens the gums.

In our experience we found that when the liver is unhealthy , leads of bleeding of gums. Doing water therapy, castor oil cleansing and taking herbs like Eclipta Alba and Niruri , immediately relieves one from bleeding gums.

The above is an Ayurvedic wisdom which attributes bleeding gums to liver health as opposed to modern medicine which pinpoints to infections in the gums. We have helped several patients by toning their liver proving the Ayurvedic fundamental principle of healthy liver for healthy gums.

Bad Breath - Halitosis
We have also seen good results with halitosis or bad-breath by toning the liver. Castor oil cleansing quickly diminished bad breath. This is because the liver cleansing action influences oral health too.The gut bacteria influence our oral health also. Everything is interlinked. Try to eat home made Indian Yogurt after 3 meals. This will populate good bacteria in the mouth and prevent bad breath.

Many toothpastes contain strong antibacterials and so can destroy the natural flora of the mouth and cause bad breath due to bad bacteria growing in oral cavity.

Periodontitis-Gingivitis
The best is to use neem powder (please bear with the bitterness). You will see stunning results in few days itself. Due to modern lifestyle we eat with the spoon and not hands and so we tend to avoid rinsing our mouth after eating. If we eat with hands then while washing the hands automatically we also tend to rinse the mouth. Leaving food particles in the mouth serves as food for bacteria to grow. This causes severe bacterial growth and bleeding and foul smelling, bad breath (Halitosis) gingivitis, periodontitis.

So rinse mouth and gums and massage with water every time after eating food or even after drinking any liquids other than water. Three times after taking food, massage with a big pinch of neem leaf powder and leave it for sometime. Do not spit the saliva that accumulates you can swallow it - no harm.

This neem will kill the bacteria and stop bleeding gums. It is a potent anti-bacterial and also anti-inflammatory agent. Before going to bed , massage with neem leaf powder and leave it as it is. It will stop the growth of bacteria in the night. This is very effective medicine to stop tartar, bleeding gums and also bad breath.

For brushing use gift charcoal tooth powder  to add additional benefit. This powder strengthens gums and teeth and very healthy for oral cavity.

Cervical abrasion in relation to toothbrushing and periodontal health.

Abstract

Cervical abrasion and some factors related to oral hygiene habits and periodontal health were investigated in 250 subjects aged 21-60 yr. The subjects were considered dentally aware since they had visited their dentist on a regular basis over the past several years. A high occurrence rate of cervical abrasion was noted with 85% of subjects exhibiting at least one superficial lesion. Manifest or deep lesions, although less common, were present in 22% of subjects. Both prevalence and severity increased with age. The severity expressed as the mean number of lesions was 7.3 for the total sample. It increased significantly with calculus index, frequency of periodontal pockets, and reduction of the alveolar bone height. No significant associations were observed between abrasion and oral hygiene factors. It is concluded that cervical abrasion, although most likely related to toothbrushing, may not be synonymous with periodontal health. Ineffective toothbrushing may not only fail to prevent disease but may also cause cervical abrasion.

the toothbrush is relatively ineffective at removing interproximal plaque, and therefore patients need to resort to additional techniques.

 

However, other sociodemographic factors and the method of cleaning teeth were not significantly associated with the occurrence of plaque, calculus or gingival bleeding.

Relief of idiopathic generalized pruritus in dialysis patients treated with activated oral charcoal.

The effect of oral charcoal on idiopathic generalized pruritus in 11 stable patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis was compared to that of placebo dextrose in a controlled, double-blind, cross-over study. Contrasted to placebo, charcoal, 6 g daily for 8 weeks, relieved pruritus subjectively in all but one patient (P = 0.01). Symptomatic relief from pruritus coincided with objective resolutions of active, scratch-induced skin lesions (P = 0.03). No significant alterations were noted in the serum concentrations of standard laboratory variables, including lipids, alkaline phosphatase, phosphorus, or calcium, during treatment with either charcoal or placebo. No adverse effects from the charcoal were noted during the study.

Oral activated charcoal in patients with uremic pruritus.

Abstract

Twenty-three chronic uremic patients on maintenance hemodialysis and suffering from severe pruritus were treated with activated powdered charcoal (6 g daily p.o.). In 10 patients pruritus disappeared completely, and in 10 other patients a partial effect was observed. The favorable results persisted for several weeks after discontinuation of the treatment. Only 3 cases were totally unresponsive. No relevant undesirable side effects were observed with the exception of 1 case who showed treatment intolerance. It is concluded that activated charcoal per os is a safe, effective, and low-cost therapy for patients with uremic pruritus, but its mechanism of action is unknown.

 

Toothbrushing is considered fundamental self-care behavior
for maintenance of oral health (Poklepovic et al. 2013), and
brushing twice a day is a social norm. Nevertheless, the effect of
toothbrushing frequency on prevention of dental caries is
unclear: the evidence is inconsistent and conflicting. In 1986,
based on conclusions from several workshops on oral hygiene,
Addy (1986) stated that other than the delivery of fluoride ions
from the toothpaste, brushing frequency by itself has no additional
benefit in preventing dental caries. Many studies have
found an association between cumulative levels of dental caries
and reported toothbrushing frequency, but only 1 published
experimental trial could be found that also evaluated the effect
of toothbrushing frequency on caries increment: this observed
a strong inverse correlation (Chestnutt et al. 1998). A Cochrane
review also concludes that brushing twice daily increases the
effectiveness of fluoridated toothpaste in decreasing caries
increment (Marinho et al. 2003).
Systematic reviews and meta-analyses have been conducted
to evaluate the associations between toothbrushing frequency
and gingival recession (Rajapakse et al. 2007), head and neck
cancer (Zeng et al. 2015), and periodontitis (Zimmermann et al.
2015). However, the evidence for a clear association between
toothbrushing frequency per se and dental caries remains
ambiguous, and no systematic review could be found that specifically
explored this matter.

The reduction of pollution. A simple approach to the reduction of pollution in the dentaloperating theatre.

Abstract

This paper describes the construction and evaluation of a simple anti-pollution device for use with the McKesson nasal mask for dental anaesthesia. The device is attached to the expiratory valve of the mask and spilled halothane vapour is adsorbed onto activated charcoal. In theatre use, comparing similar dental anaesthesia sessions, it resulted in a reduction of approximately 78% in the mean halothane concentration (vol./vol.) at a point equidistant from the expiratory valve as the faces of surgeon and anaesthetist. This percentage reduction was consistent with the weight gained by the activated charcoal container (Cardiff 'Aldasorber') compared with the weight of halothane vapourised.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/920922
