Although oral health is often treated separately from the body as a whole, the health of the oral cavity – the mouth – and its tissues – impacts overall health. Poor oral health may be the cause of a more serious underlying disease process, or it may predispose an individual to other health conditions.
The mouth is colonized by hundreds of different bacterial species that inhabit dental plaque. These species adhere in layers to oral surfaces. They are not easily eliminated by the body’s natural immune responses and must be mechanically removed. Bacteria increase tenfold when the mouth is not sufficiently cleaned.
A clean mouth contains several hundred billion bacteria, and this number increases when poor oral care exists. By using saliva and gingival fluid to supply their nutrients, bacteria inhabit all areas of the mouth, threatening oral and systemic health. Bacteria beneath the gums, or gingiva, have been reported to be involved in numerous systemic diseases. Oral health care, especially proper cleaning and caution in the consumption of and ongoing exposure to intensely acidic and sugary foods (like soda pop), contributes to a healthy lifestyle.
Essential oils are a particularly effective means of supporting oral health, partly because they are antibacterial and antifungal in nature. Clove oil helps to relieve oral pain, cinnamon and peppermint are effective against plaque and gum disease, melaleuca is soothing and helpful in eradicating canker sores, and lavender is soothing to sore muscles that result from teeth grinding.
Oil pulling is also particularly beneficial to restoring and maintaining oral health. Specific essential oils can be chosen as part of that routine to target desired results.
