We have no doubt that you have a well-maintained brushing routine. But if you think you could do more for your pearl protein, gums, tongue and everything else, we have some ideas: tweaking toothpaste, the habit of scraping your tongue for ten seconds and-if ready for an all-two-week reset involving coconut oil bags great mint.

Toothpaste

  1. First, this toothpaste, which replaces fluoride with an ingredient called nano-hydroxyapatite (n-Ha), has been the gold standard in Japanese dentistry for decades: it removes plaque, desensitizes and works on tooth remineralization. In addition, this toothpaste does not contain parabens, SLS and artificial flavors, and is subtly flavored with mint, green tea and cardamom.

  2. The fact that this toothpaste does not contain fluoride and sulfate can only be a bonus as it has an amazing taste. Naturally flavored with mint, mint leaf and evergreen oils, it refreshes the breath in the fight against plaque. In addition, it comes with a sleek metal pipe wrench while using it, and unlike conventional toothpaste, it has packaging that can be completely recycled.

  1. The Floss

    When a dentist asks you if you use dental floss, he can tell you when you are lying. But some people don’t have to: There is a community of fire flossers and their loyalty belongs to Cocofloss. The cocofloss is made of 500 plus polyester fibers that feel amazing — the floss itself is thicker than we’re used to, but somehow it’s easier to slide between teeth. Coated with coconut oil, it smells (slightly) of natural coconut, mint and other aromas. Once you try, you will never come back.

  2. Toothbrush

    Our non-electric toothbrush is optionally made of bamboo – which requires less water, soil and labor to grow than wood – and has natural bristles instead of plastic ones. We like to keep a few of them on hand for travel and for house guests.

  3. Tongue cleaner

    This stainless steel loop is made to scrape the lumps off the tongue — an Ayurvedic practice for oral care and fresh breath. It is made with two small handles for more control and comfortably reaches all the way to the back of the mouth. You can always clean your tongue with a toothbrush, but it gives a nicer feel than a toothbrush bristle, and it also seems to work better.

  4. Mouthwash

    Inspired by a love of the ocean and a passion for sustainability, dentist and surfer Christopher Perez created this gentle mouthwash to care for our mouths – our “inner oceans” – with kindness. Instead of drying alcohol, Perez formulated rinsing with rich sea salts, blue-green algae, seaweed extracts, echinacea, and essential oils. It smells slightly of the sea and gives you the pure feeling you are looking for. Also take a smaller travel size for storage for a work bag or hand luggage.

  5. Oil extraction kit

    Give it two weeks and you will swear by oil extraction, an Ayurvedic oral health practice of penetrating oil into the mouth to get rid of excess butor accumulation. Fourteen bags of light, mint coconut oil with essential oils of lemon, chamomile and myrrh are included in this oil extraction kit. The kit is designed to be used for fourteen consecutive days to reset a full mouth. Every day, before flossing and brushing, just open the package, pour the oil into your mouth and swirl it for five to fifteen minutes before spitting it into the trash. (Coconut oil can clog the sink drain.) After the first fourteen days, wave twice a week to maintain results.

  6. Bleaching tapes

    These whitening strips use herbal ingredients to whiten teeth instead of hydrogen peroxide or other irritating chemicals commonly found in major brands. With Lumineux strips you get natural whitening with a combination of coconut oil, minerals packaged Dead Sea salt, soothing aloe vera and essential oils of mint, clove and basil. They are very suitable for sensitive teeth and safe for the mouth with composites, veneers and crowns.
