Oil pulling is an antiquated Ayurvedic practice that involves swishing around a tiny bit of pure oil (coconut oil is preferred) in your mouth immediately after you wake up for 15-20 minutes. It sounds weird, but it has been proven to thoroughly cleanse your mouth without having to use chemically-laden mouthwash. This practice helps to stop bacterial growth and dental fluorosis, but overall, it is most helpful to the gums.

Although tongue scraping can’t replace brushing your teeth, it gets rid of toxins, bacteria, and dead cells from the tongue to prevent bad breath and prevent cavities, gum disease, and other unwanted conditions. It can also improve your sense of taste and your tongue’s overall appearance. Herbal breath fresheners can come in handy if you’re looking for fresh breath that lasts all day. They come in several natural flavors and are convenient when you’re on the go.

Not only are rechargeable electric toothbrushes better for the environment, but they are better at removing plaque compared to manual toothbrushes and are easier to use. They do all the work for you and can help you clean those hard-to-reach areas inside your mouth.
