Are Homeopathic Dental Products a Better Option?

Posted on 2/25/2019 by Matt Aldridge DDS
Are Homeopathic Dental Products a Better Option?You have likely heard about different dentistry options, including using homeopathic, all-natural options. For some, they want to use these products because they like using more sustainable items, while others have allergies to some commercially made products.

Do these products work better? Are the products you can make at home for yourself a better option for your teeth? This is a bit of a debatable point, but in our opinion, there is nothing better than coming in regularly and using a well thought-out routine on a daily basis.

Dentistry Is Not Something You Can Do on Your Own

While the products you use can impact the overall level of health your mouth has, that is not all you need to consider. While we recommend products with more bacteria fighters and fluoride, some people simply cannot have them or do not want them. That is totally up to you. However, keep in mind that while you can choose which products to use at home, you cannot do everything at home that we do in the office.

Even if you choose homeopathic products at home, you still need to come in and see us every six months. We need to clean off your teeth and make sure you do not have any tartar buildup. We also need to look around and make sure you do not have any of the early signs of cavities. These are things that cannot be done with at-home products, natural or not.

The best thing that you can do is make sure to brush two times daily, floss at least once per day, and use a good mouthwash at least once per day. Then, you should also come in and let us clean and inspect your mouth every six months. That way, no matter which products you choose to use, you can rest assured that your mouth is both clean and healthy.
