Tooth Paste
    Mr. Awesome will just give you the recipe:
  - 2 tablespoon baking soda [Bob's Red Mill] as a natural safe abrasive for cleaning teeth, more so than commercial toothpaste!
  - 1 tablespoon coconut oil as an antibacterial
  - 1/2 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide
  - optional: 5 drops of essential oil - e.g., Peppermint? Clove?
            (Caution using Wintergreen essential oil!!)

Mr. Awesome's Tooth Paste Recipe

    Store in a small glass jar w/ a cover. This should last a week or more.

    Absolutely NO Flouride, Sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, Artificial sweeteners or FD&C Blue No. 1

     You don't need any sweetener.  If your kids refuse to brush their teeth as a result, just put them up for adoption.

    Don't forget to clean your toothbrush!  Maybe keep teh brush in a small jar of hydrogen peroxide?

You don't need sweetener in your toothpaste!
What's fluoride?

Healing Cavities/Remineralization with Oil Pulling

    Did you know that "inactive" cavities can be healed or remineralized? Yup. The dentin can be regrown even stronger than the enamel that may have been eaten away. Consider looking into "oil pulling" to help with repairing inactive cavities. It involves swishing an oil through your teeth for about 5 minutes. They always say 20 minutes but that is overkill methinks. Try coconut oil. You could use olive oil but ick. Other than that there are some simple dietary measures you can make to get the proper nutrients for dental health. Check out the following informative links:
