What can be more contagious and attractive than a glowing and healthy smile? It can make you feel happier and bring bigger joy to others around you.
But your smile needs some care and this article will give you valuable information to do so. Here are some natural methods you can use to have a greater smile. They can also help in brightening your teeth and solving many problems that have the potential to harm your oral health.
Before we discuss these natural ways, you should know how the commercial teeth whitening products affect your health.
Around a billion dollars are spent every year in the U.S. on these products. Despite these products being used so widely, there are still doubts on their effectiveness and concerns about how they can cause harm to your health.
There are many side effects to these teeth whitening products. Some of these problems include gum irritation, toothache, receding gums, brittle teeth, translucent teeth, oral infections and diseases, and yellowing of the teeth.
There are some teeth whiteners which have positive effects. However, their positive effects don’t last long. At the same time using them more frequently can cause serious teeth damage.
This is why you should avoid these products. There are natural ways which are effective and don’t cause any side effects.
The best thing is that you can get the desired positive effects for your teeth by using only natural methods. Fortunately, the spice that can help you is already there in your kitchen. It is nothing else, but the commonly used golden turmeric.
You may think that turmeric’s color affects almost any surface and fabric. But when it comes to the teeth, it doesn’t cause the yellowing but leaves your teeth white.
Turmeric can not only help in whitening your teeth, it can also be beneficial in the treatment of so many health conditions.
Experts claim that turmeric was used for the first time in India. From there it spread across Africa, other Asian countries and the Caribbean. It has been consumed and used as a medicine for thousands of years across different parts of the world. But it has only recently become popular among Americans. In fact, its popularity grew in the U.S. only in the last 30 years.
Ancient scripts often refer to this wonderful spice as “gold.” It had been so prevalent during the ancient times that its use can be found on cooking supplies. In fact, teeth of ancient skeletons found near the Indus River have also been found to have traces of turmeric.
It is not like the anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals that may be effective but result in so many side effects. This wonderful spice has only positive effects to offer for all your organs.
You should use it turmeric in normal dosage. You don’t want to use excess of it, if you don’t want to have diarrhea or nausea!

Positive Effects of Turmeric on your Dental Health & Oral Hygiene
Turmeric’s benefits are not just for whitening your teeth. It can also help benefit your overall dental health. These positive effects include the following:
Fighting Gum Irritation & Reddening
When you start using turmeric, which is a natural product, in place of chemicals-based products, you will be preventing oral inflammations and irritations.
All these benefits of turmeric come from its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It can also help in protecting you reddening of the gum or irritations.
Most people will never know that the toothpaste they are buying often contain chemicals that they can be allergic to.
Fighting Oral Infections & Toothaches
Thanks to its antiviral and antibacterial properties, turmeric is capable of eliminating oral infections and gives you relief from them.
Brain Protection – Against Fluoride Damage
Turmeric offers another positive benefit for your health. It is capable of preventing the negative effects of fluoride. Fluoride is a very harmful substance. Unfortunately, it is there in many things which we use daily. These include antibiotics, your toothpaste, the non-stick pan you use to prepare food, and even your drinking water.
It is not only the body that it can harm, fluoride can also cause damage to your brain. And this has been confirmed in many studies.
Curcumin, the magical component in this spice, offers potent brain-saving benefits. In medical term, it works as a neuroprotective agent. This property of turmeric has been found in over 200 published studies.
Decalcification of Pineal Gland
Most of us may have never heard of the pineal gland. This gland is an important part of your nervous system. It is located within your brain – at the center. It works to regulate different hormones and is the part of the brain associated with spiritual awakening.
But the different harmful chemicals and substances that enter our body can damage this gland. But when turmeric is used on a regular basis, it can help in both protecting and improving this gland’s health because of its anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective benefits.
