Benefits of Natural Tooth Powder and 6 Best Natural Tooth Powders

Oral and dental hygiene is a vital part of our everyday lives. From centuries, people take care of their teeth to prevent bacteria from producing bad breath and several oral diseases. In the past, natural tooth powder was used for dental hygiene, which is replaced by toothpaste in recent times. However, the use of tooth powders is regaining popularity because of various benefits and organic ingredients.

The tooth powder history goes back to ancient times, when Egyptians, Romans, Chinese and Greeks used burnt eggshells and ashes from ox hooves mixed with pumice for cleaning their teeth. After that, the Chinese added herbs and salts to enhance the taste and cleaning properties of the powder. As only natural ingredients were used, they were safer for teeth and gums.

In this article, we'll tell you the benefits of tooth powders, how to use them, and a comparison between tooth powder and toothpaste. Lastly, we’ll introduce you to our 6 best natural tooth powders with amazing organic ingredients.

Tooth Powder Vs. Toothpaste


In comparison, tooth powder dates back thousands of years to ancient times. On the other hand, toothpaste didn't come on the market shelves till the mid-1800s. After that, toothpaste became more popular than tooth powder. However, some studies show that tooth powder is more effective than toothpaste in controlling plaque-induced gingivitis and removing teeth stains.

Toothpaste is convenient to use. But it contains fluoride, gluten and other chemical substances that can dissolve in our bloodstream and show side effects. These substances are used to form a paste like consistency and foam during brushing. On the contrary, tooth powders are made of dry natural ingredients that do not have chemicals to make foam while brushing.

Whether you use tooth powder or toothpaste, it's best to check the ingredients before usage.


Benefits of Natural Tooth Powders

Natural tooth powders are available in online shops and some local markets. They are in demand by people who focus on buying natural and organic products. Natural tooth powder work best for people with sensitive tooth. Moreover, they help in controlling pain, bleeding, receding gums and much more. Let's have a look at some of their major benefits.

·      Helps in Cleansing of Teeth

Latest tooth powders contain ingredients that are fine enough to clean the teeth without damaging the enamel. Ingredients such as activated charcoal and baking soda help clean your teeth and give you a bright smile.

·      Alleviate the Risk of Cavities

Modern tooth powders reduce the risk of tooth cavities and tooth decay with the help of certain ingredients like xylitol that helps in reducing the cavity-causing bacteria in the mouth.   

·      Contain Essential Nutrients

Food and drinks have various acids and chemicals that attach to the teeth and wear down the enamel. Toothpaste contains chemicals that cause more harm to the enamel rather than repairing it. However, organic tooth powder contains essential nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium, beneficial for both teeth and enamel. These nutrients help in the remineralization and strengthening of teeth.

·      Improves Gum Health

Proper care of gums is also important in oral health. Damaged gums can lead to several gum diseases such as gingivitis, receding and bleeding of gums. Natural tooth powders lessen the chance of these diseases and improve gum health.

·      Helps to Fight Bad Breath

Some ingredients in tooth powders effectively kill the bacteria that cause a foul smell in the mouth. Baking soda is proficient at combating bad breath and providing a fresh mouth.


How to Use Natural Tooth Powder?

Brushing with tooth powder is slightly different from brushing with toothpaste. As the toothpowder is dry, you need water. So, soak your toothbrush in water and dip it into the tooth powder. Now you can brush your teeth just like brushing with toothpaste. And rinse your mouth. That's it! After brushing, your mouth will be fresh and clean.
