 Turmeric: You’ve likely heard all about it in every health article out there these days. The orange-colored root has been used in traditional Indian cooking for centuries and is now being recognized for its powerful healing qualities, including its ability to fight inflammation and aid in warding off certain diseases. And now, we’ve got a totally new use for the spice that may seem quite unlikely, whitening your teeth.

Oral health is complicated, and while we know the importance of pearly-white teeth, commercial teeth whiteners pose other dangers to your oral health and can increase the likelihood of your developing issues like gum disease, gingivitis, enamel, and tooth decay, and even receding gums.

Luckily for us, turmeric is an all-natural alternative to pesky chemicals that and can instead benefit your oral health in more ways than one. That’s right: Not only will turmeric make your teeth whiter, but it can also help you ward off gum disease and reduce any inflammation of the gums and mouth.

Some studies suggest that this could be because of the main active ingredient in turmeric – curcumin – which has anti-inflammatory properties that protect against gum disease and gingivitis, while reducing the build up of plaque and bacteria on the teeth and along the gum line. Other studies suggest that it may even be a great all-natural solution to the mouth pain associated with conditions like periodontitis and oral cancers. Sounds like a miracle, right?

So, while it may seem counterproductive to rub a bright orange powder onto your teeth to make them whiter, we’re urging you to try out turmeric for teeth whitening, because it works. Not only will you be showing off shiny white teeth, but your teeth and mouth health will be boosted overall. Here’s how to use turmeric for teeth whitening.

Turmeric for Teeth Whitening: Recipe and Process

To use turmeric to whiten your teeth safely, you’ll need to avoid overdoing it. The process outlined below can be used over the course of a few days, and you shouldn’t repeat it more than once per day as this could cause damage to your enamel.

Here’s how you can make your own whitening treatment using turmeric powder. Keep in mind, turmeric is a spice that is quite potent in taste, so if you’re not a fan of having that taste in your mouth, you can try adding some mint oil to your turmeric powder. Another note: Turmeric stains. Be careful with your clothes, and bear in mind that you should use a fresh toothbrush to apply it, as it will turn bristles yellow.

To make your own turmeric teeth whitening mixture, simply use a small amount, about a quarter teaspoon of turmeric powder, and add your mint oil, if desired. That’s all you need! Brush your teeth as usual with regular toothpaste, then using a wet toothbrush, lightly dip it into the powder mixture. Apply the wet turmeric powder to your teeth and gums. Allow the turmeric powder to sit on your teeth for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Next, brush your teeth again with toothpaste, and you’re done.

Happy whitening!

That’s it for now my friends; see you all the nest time.
