Most people don’t realize that your teeth could be remineralized naturally. The combination of trace minerals, baking soda, coconut oil, and tea tree oil can do wonders for your teeth. Baking soda not only prevents tooth decay but also remineralizes your enamel effectively. It can also neutralize plaque acids. Tea Tree Oil possesses antibacterial and antiseptic properties which help with gingivitis, plaque, and inflamed gums. Additionally, tea tree oil has a whitening effect on teeth.
Coconut oil is incredible for your gums’ health and also teeth whitening. Lauric acid,in coconut oil is a fatty acid that is very effective in fighting bacteria, and most especially the harmful oral bacteria that causes bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. It’s especially effective at killing an oral bacteria called Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans), which is a leading cause of tooth decay.
