The Japanese keep their teeth healthy and clean without using toothbrushes. They put toothpaste on their index finger and clean their teeth. This is a good way to clean and strengthen teeth and massage the gums.

We no doubt know more about external cleansing of the body than about internal cleaning, but this does not always have the expected effects. Regular brushing of teeth, sometimes two to three times a day, is a well-established habit for many people.

If we are not among the lucky ones who were born with a strong, perfectly aligned and white teeth like milk foam, I pray white as chalk if we are to look at the smiles on the Hollywood line, it is clear that we understand the burden of an imperfect smile.

We smile because we’re happy but the smile itself also makes us feel happy

Tooth health begins even before we were born

A mother-to-be’s diet must be balanced. Tooth health is related to the mother’s lifestyle. Hormonal changes during pregnancy trigger various inflammations of the gums and teeth problems may occur. It is very important that all dental problems are resolved before a pregnancy is installed.

It is very important to eliminate children’s wrong habits, not to eat refined sweets and to offer them healthy alternatives, such as an apple. According to dentists, from two years any child must brush their teeth and maintain this habit throughout their life. For the best results we need to brush our teeth for 3-5 minutes.

The genetic factor plays a very important role, but even more important is the lifestyle and especially hygiene. Washing twice a day, morning and evening before bedtime are the letter of the law. Anyone with porcelain works, problems with the gums must also use the oral shower.

How we clean our teeth

There are cases where even though daily tooth care is given by brushing and using a more expensive toothpaste, these people still have teething problems. It is not enough just to brush our teeth, but all our activities have an impact on the teeth. Everything we do: nutrition, hydration, movement.

Many do not realize that teeth are living organs and that any organ undergoes changes depending on various factors. To have healthy teeth we have to have strong bones. Foods that help us to have strong bones are: dairy, quality proteins, green vegetables, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts (important for calcium and vitamin K content) and Omega 3.

We brush our teeth well, use the best toothpaste, but many of us do not know how to combat the degradation of teeth and gums. First, toothbrushes hurt our teeth as we brush them. Rigid pears hurt our gums. Food particles enter the wounds left and begin to rot, causing infections.

Toothbrushes do not improve blood circulation in the gums because they do not massage them. The walls are infected with bacteria, so it is indicated to change them as often as possible, especially after a detartrage.

Because of these reasons, even regular and rigorous brushing of teeth does not protect us from cavities or periodontosis. Periodontosis, is a bacterial infection that forms under the gums and affects the tissue and bone structure that supports teeth. They cause not only pain, but also other diseases such as inflammation of the joints, high blood pressure, kidney, heart or stomach conditions, malfunctioning of the eyes, nose or ears.

Do we adopt the Japanese method to have healthy teeth?

The Japanese are recognized as the most advanced in technology and yet they continue to use ancient methods when it comes to health. The method of cleaning his teeth and massaging his gums with his index finger is still used today with remarkable results. The Japanese are also renowned for their healthy teeth, among many others.

The Japanese prepare a natural toothpaste from: 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, two teaspoons of toothpaste, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder. Mix well and store in a dark container. How is it used? As shown above, stick your index finger in this mixture and you can clean your teeth and massage your gums for one to two minutes on each side. Then brush your teeth for one minute. Rinse your mouth with plenty of water. After this cleaning drink a cup of green tea. It prevents the formation of caries and destroys microorganisms that affect tooth enamel.

How yogis keep their teeth healthy

Yogis are the ones who initiated the techniques of cleansing the body. They consider regular use of brushes to be poor hygiene. Instead, they use disposable brushes in the form of stems or marshes. Hair, lemon, currant, raspberry, pine or spruce are the best choices. Yogis, take 15 cm of pine or spruce, chew them at one end until they resemble a brush. They have disinfectant effects due to compounds found in these trees. They use the jaded end as a toothbrush to clean their teeth and massage their gums.

Yogi masters don’t use toothpaste at all. They use a mixture of salts in the form of powder mixed with oil. This is how they manage to keep their teeth healthy, being recognized for their philosophy of life. They are connected to divinity, the cosmos, living in a fundamental union where earth, water, air and fire meet.

Try a new method. It doesn’t cost you anything, and yet it’s effective: smile. This method starts from the heart of man, it is the smile that comes from an inner peace, from the joy of a good heart. This smile makes every man beautiful
