In this article, we are going to talk about natural ways in which you can reverse tooth decaying processes as well as whiten them without paying a visit to the dentist. Namely, it is not entirely true that tooth decays must be treated by a dentist with drilling and filling as those degeneration processes are caused by nutritional deficiencies rather than bacteria.
On the other hand, the tooth masks mentioned in this article have been proven to be a very good alternative in oral care if they are accompanied by some changes in your lifestyle:
• consume more foods rich in vitamin D and K2, such as full fat milk, cream, ghee, grass fed butter and chicken.
• cut off the intake of white refined sugar
• practice oil swishing in the morning, at least three times a week
• do flossing before bedtime
Here are several recipes for tooth masks that can be used for removing stains from your teeth and healing some early decays.
