Dental hygiene isn’t what it was a decade ago. Even as the best of oral cleansers and dental creams have been produced claiming wonder cures, it doesn’t really have much effect due to the onslaught of sugary products bombing peoples teeth. Food, fizzy drinks and alcohol are the biggest culprits when it comes to damaging teeth. Moreover we never really bother about matters such as receding gums, sensitive teeth and weak gums too all because it doesn’t really hurt us until it’s severe. That ends in a rush to the dentist for even more painful procedures.

Why go through all that when there is a natural wonder deemed almost miracle cure for healthy teeth. Coconut oil. Yes! Instead of relying on harmful chemicals in toothpaste, coconut oil is now being regarded as the new miracle cure for dental problems guaranteed to give it 24 hour protection. Replace toothpaste with coconut oil and notice the difference. If you want to know why? Then here are 8 reasons to do so.

1 Coconut oil is a great teeth cleanser

Coconut oil is a better option for cleaning teeth than regular toothpaste. It has none of the chemicals present in toothpaste and teeth acquire all of its beneficial properties even as they are cleaned of tartar and plaque. Coconut oil also whitens teeth.
