Let's talk about dental health for a moment. Tooth decay and gum diseases, along with many other dental illnesses affect people around the world. An estimated 90% of children and 50% of adults suffer from tooth decay, gingivitis, or any one of the other major mouth ailments of today.
There is no question that it’s present, and oral hygiene measures must be made to prevent these bacteria from taking over our mouths. Oral hygiene and dental health are important and it's not a bad idea to check a refresher course for how to take care of your dental health properly from time to time.
Everybody has their method of brushing, rinsing, and so on, but what do you use? Users that are sensitive to the chemicals in fluoride toothpaste or other commercial products like this flock to natural alternatives. This is where myrrh tincture and coconut oil come in.
These two natural properties are turned to by dental hygienists and sensitive dental patients the most because they are effective at fighting cavities, decay, gum disease, the germs that cause bad breath, and so much more. So I guess the question now is; which is more effective, products and solutions made from myrrh tincture or coconut oil?
Let’s start by taking a closer look at coconut oil, just for comparison. It’s a fragrant, light oil you can cook with or even use as a health and beauty product for your skin and hair. People do everything from fry food in coconut oil to rubbing it on their face for wrinkles. It is also a strong antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic agent used for dental care in places and dentistry offices all around the globe.
When you eat, tiny particles of food get trapped on and around your teeth, causing bacteria to form. This bacteria later inhibits your mouth and can cause tooth decay. Streptococcus is the most common bacteria like this, and coconut oil directly fights against this specific bacteria. As another benefit to dental prosperity, coconut oil also aids in digestion, salivation, and absorption of nutrients to the teeth and gums - so coconut oil may actually build and strengthen your teeth as well. This can mean a wide range of benefits in dental health just for brushing your teeth with some kind of coconut oil based toothpaste, or simply gargling with a coconut oil mouthwash.
This method of dental prevention has been used for centuries due to its effectiveness and affordability. A jar of coconut oil is cheap and could last months, cheap toothpaste can be made by combining the oil with baking soda, and there are no harmful chemicals or sulfides, so your mouth is healthy and your breath stays fresh.
So you have less cost than store bought toothpaste, no chemicals, it’s an effective solution to tooth decay, and it kills germs which cause gum problems and mouth odour. Coconut oil could be the better choice for those who seek to make the switch from store bought dental products to an all-natural, scientifically proven, effective solution to oral care; but let’s take a look at what Myrrh Tincture has to offer as well.
Tincture of myrrh is a little less commonly used than coconut oil, but could it actually be better or more effective? Myrrh in its natural state is a gum that is derived from a tree, there are no chemicals, and some breath sprays and mouthwashes are made from myrrh based ingredients.
That’s because the first thing myrrh does when introduced orally is to neutralize all of the germs that cause foul, odorous, bad breath. Halitosis, which are bad breath causing bacterium, are almost completely destroyed when myrrh is used in oral hygiene.
Myrrh is also good for your gums, as it reduces the redness and swelling identified with weakening gums or gum disease. Gingivitis is reduced by myrrh, so toothpaste should definitely be used on the gums as well. It almost heals receding gums and there is research pointing to its effectiveness in healing mouth ulcers.
Users experiencing toothaches, or who have sensitive teeth may find comfort in knowing that myrrh is good for that as well. Myrrh will fight a toothache and help you heal while it soothes you. The benefits of having this miracle of nature in your toothpaste are virtually endless. It’s recorded use has been around for a really long time, it works like expensive medicine (and yet is cheap), can be found almost anywhere, and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
So in comparison, coconut oil and myrrh are similar in many respects and differ in only a few ways. Their effectiveness against odour causing bacteria, tooth decay, and gum problems is about the same. Myrrh tincture has the potential for more general mouth wellness properties, while coconut oil improves and maintains tooth strength while supporting your gums as well. They are both excellent choices for natural dental health care.
It’s up to you to make the comparison for yourself and figure out which one you want beside your bathroom sink in the morning. It all helps our fragile oral health states. If you were deciphering between which of the two natural products to depend on, your decision should really ultimately depend on upon which areas of dental hygiene you would rather improve upon more.
