More in depth Information regarding the ingredients in Ice Chips Tooth Powder
Baking Soda - By attacking the plaque formation it prevents dental decay, cavity formation and gum diseases to a very large extent. It also fights bad breath by balancing the acidic levels of residual food.
Xylitol - Over time with xylitol use, the quality of the bacteria in the mouth changes and fewer and fewer decay-causing bacteria survive on tooth surfaces. Less plaque forms and the level of acids attacking the tooth surface is lowered.
Himalayan Salt - Acts as a gentle abrasive, removing food particles and plaque, preventing dental decay, cavity formation and gum diseases to a very large extent. It also fights bad breath by balancing the acidic levels of residual food.
Sage - Besides being a natural whitener for teeth, sage has antimicrobial effects, which can neutralize microbes that promote dental plaque. In one study, sage was shown to effectively kill the Streptococcus mutans bacteria, which is notorious for causing dental cavities.
Myrrh - Can be applied directly to the mouth for soreness and swelling, inflamed gums (gingivitis), loose teeth, canker sores, bad breath, and chapped lips.
Bloodroot - Used on teeth to reduce the build-up of plaque. Plaque is a film of saliva, mucus, bacteria, and food particles that can promote gum disease.
Orange, peppermint, spearmint and wintergreen essential oil all help kill bacteria, and combat problems such as gingivitis, mouth ulcers, and bad breath. In addition, peppermint essential oil is an amazing treatment for post-tooth extraction and wintergreen essential oil also helps whiten teeth.
