Through Covid-19, Sars-CoV-2, and the variants oral care has been one of the most restrictive areas of medicine. Getting in for those routine office visits has been next to impossible with waits up to 2 years, instead of the recommended 6 months.
Here are three Do-it-yourself measures that can bring relief to the wary.
First, try tongue scraping to clear away bacteria build-up. Use a stainless-steel tongue scraper or spoon to scrap from the back to front of the tongue and rinse mouth.
Secondly: Detox or oil pull with coconut oil. Here is how. Hold and whish about a tablespoon of coconut oil in the mouth for about 20 minutes. Properly discard it and brush as usual. It is works and will leave the mouth detoxified and teeth whiten.
Lastly, make your own toothpaste. Here is the recipe. In a glass jar mix three tablespoons non-GMO or organic baking soda, three tablespoons coconut oil, 2 teaspoons vegetarian glycerin, 1 packet stevia or artificial sweetener, and 20 drops peppermint oil. Add a small amount to brush as usual. The toothpaste will keep for six months.
Note that this is not a substitue for dental medicine, or good oral care, but intented to help fight tooth decay.
