As our attitudes change and as a society we desire a move towards a greener and more natural way of life, there is a growing demand for more natural methods of dental treatment. Although this seems a relatively new concept, it is actually one that has existed for millennia. Indeed it is only relatively recently in human history that we have used synthetically produced medicinal remedies. Until then, and still in other parts of the world, herbal teeth remedies were the only option. Today we may be able to choose but herbal teeth remedies offer an alternative that is increasingly of interest to many.
A lack of unpleasant side effects is the most obvious and important advantage that herbal remedies possess, and this is just one of many that these ancient cures have over today’s treatments. The ‘we know best’ mentality of the West in the 20th Century is gradually starting to turn into a more open-minded approach. The lack of side effects and growing number of glowing testimonies from patients are also encouraging an enthusiastic response from dentists.
Herbal remedies work by attacking the problem at the source. They are less concerned with treating the symptoms (something that we in the 20th century are obsessed with) than by treating the cause of the illness or disease. Herbal teeth remedies also take a more holistic approach to treatment. A toothache maybe caused by any number of factors both in the mouth and in other parts of the body. Herbal remedies target the exact source of the problem and stop the aggravation.
