Please, accept this from someone who knows beyond doubt...your dental health is paramount to your overall health!
Anyone who has read a few of my blogs, knows my struggle with dental health & it's very real link to heart health.
I was one of the privileged kids who went to the dentist every six months of my first sixteen years, & beyond into my adult life...although I don't know whether that really stood me in good stead for the rest of my dental health. Certainly we can throw genetics in to the mix, and a bout of an eating disorder in my teens, but I've not fared well & my smile (along with a small partial plate) shows that :(
In 2012 I suffered a 'widowmaker heart attack', no warning, no known heart issue, but what we eventually discovered is that the heart attack was due to a group of very nasty & dangerous bacteria (thanks to thorough DNA testing) that lived for 20+ years under a root canal completed in my 20's. Fast forward to what I understand now?..... root canals mean you have a dead tooth fastened into your mouth, & there is nothing healthy about a dead tooth if you want to keep a body healthy, it's simply not a healthy practice.
9 years on & I've done all manner of things to resolve the gum disease that resulted from this bacteria - brushing with charcoal & bicarb...both abrasives that wear down your protective enamel if used daily, oil pulling (who has the time & stomach for that 2 times a day?), organic toothpastes that clean your teeth & taste ok but don't add anything that actually nourishes or assists with oral health, powerful lipid oils that don't cling to the brush but leave a stain on your wallet, cleanses, detoxes, major dietary changes & though they certainly helped...
I needed more, We all need more! - we need a tooth & gum cleanse that rids us off the bad bacteria, cleans & polishes our smile & we need it delivered on our toothbrush 2 times a day for 2 minutes.
A year after I first started the exhausting research & formulating, finding the correct ratios that are - bathroom vanity stable, healthy, stick on your brush, freshen your breath, organic, vegan, safe for all ages, cleans & polishes teeth, rids us of the bad bacteria & nourishes our gums has been successfully tried, tested, measured, rejigged & all that again & again, & it's here, it's arrived & it's simply amazing!!!

Price: I tried very hard to make this Toothgel affordable for everyone, cause trust me....you need this in your life! 100ml of this powerpacked beauty delivers 300 squirts, that's a lot of brushing. The organic ingredients however are not without expense so the price is the very best I could do & in comparison to other lipids, oils & specialist pastes & gels, it's exceptionally competitive, not to mention saving you $ getting the damage repaired if you don't care for your oral health.
Directions: Simply floss & rinse well before brushing. Add 1-2 squirts of the gel to your Brush & clean all surfaces of your teeth (don't forget those hard to get at 4 back corners...they are ultra important) for a full 2 mins, twice a day. When brushing remember to include the most important part...your gums!, concentrating on the area where your gums & teeth meet. Rinse or simply leave overnight on your gums if you need a little more help with your oral health & particularly gums problems.
