Article Source: Dr Harold Katz on the Huffington Post
Through this health news article, researchers review natural tooth care solutions. From this article, we are able to understand why certain chemicals and additives could be more harmful than beneficial to overall dental health.
Researchers are looking for alternatives to chemical additives that are traditionally added to oral care products to help with halitosis and tooth decay. Many oral care products can have harsh compounds, which do not provided added oral benefits. Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) can be found in many toothpastes and mouthwashes, and is known for its ability to irritate the mouth.
So what should be used in these products to keep your mouth healthy and shining at its best? Research has shown that the solution might lie with coconut oil. Coconut oil can slow the growth of bacteria, and more studies are being conducted to evaluate its effectiveness towards combating cavities. If the research continues along the same trajectory, then coconut might be a good natural additive to add too oral care products.
