How many times have you seen someone do something and you just wanted to cringe because you knew the end result was going to be bad? I’ve experienced this many times and the other day a story was floating around the internet about a man who almost lost his life after he made a hasty decision about something going on inside his mouth. Apparently, while eating popcorn, a kernel got lodged pretty deep between one of his back teeth and gum. He didn’t have a toothpick so he used what he had on hand and that happened to be a paperclip. So, this metal office tool became a dentists nightmare and ended up causing a concerning infection that sent him to the hospital in pretty bad shape. Without going into deeper detail, the message is that you should only use dentist approved tools when it comes to your oral care. ~ The thing I thought of after reading about this was that I was so glad I knew what to do for mouth and gum care on a daily basis. doTERRA has so many essential oils that are capable of the support we need in every way, plus we have a natural whitening toothpaste and a cleansing mouthwash that includes our popular On Guard oil blend. Some of the oils that you can use topically for gum and tooth support are our Melaleuca, ( Tea Tree oil ) Clove, Rosemary, Cinnamon, Oregano, ( diluted ) Myrrh, Peppermint, and Turmeric.
