Product Description:
 
Our oral health is intimately linked with our overall health and well-being. In this practical guide to herbal dental care, medical herbalist Leslie Alexander and registered dental hygienist Linda Straub-Bruce detail how to use 41 safe and effective herbs for the mouth for optimum oral health, prevention of decay and inflammation, and relief from pain and discomfort.

The authors provide recipes for herbal toothpastes and rinses, poultices for pain and inflammation, and teas and tinctures for intervention, prevention, and daily care. They explain how recent research confirms the link between poor oral health and many diseases, such as diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. They examine the risk factors, symptoms, causes, and herbal preventives and remedies for 47 common conditions that affect the mouth, such as gingivitis, periodontitis, bruxism, acid reflux/GERD, and tooth loss. They explore the complete anatomy of the mouth and explain proper brushing, flossing, and tongue-cleaning techniques to prevent tooth decay and gum disease and maintain bridges, implants, and braces. The authors address the importance of diet and nutrition in oral health as well as controversial topics including fluoride. They provide an in-depth chapter on pregnancy, infant, and childhood oral care, including herbal remedies for teething and thrush.

Ideal for those looking to improve their own oral health, herbalists looking to address the root cause of systemic inflammation, or dental professionals searching for natural alternatives, this authoritative yet practical guide empowers each of us to reclaim the health of our mouths and sustain a full, strong set of teeth for a lifetime.

2.0 out of 5 stars.  Not what I thought. It's more about conventional dentalism ..., May 11, 2015
By A Customer
Not what I thought. It's more about conventional dentalism plus some herbal remedies thrown in. It's not how to heal the mouth and teeth using herbal remedies.

3.0 out of 5 stars.  Alexander and I really wanted to love this book, March 18, 2015
By KCL
I listened to an interview with Dr. Alexander and I really wanted to love this book...but I feel let down. I appreciate the information, but I have a lot of the herbal information in other herb books. I understand their reasoning for not giving recipes, but I expected there to be more recipes than there were--and, again, some of the recipes I have in other books. The charts are too small for me to read easily. For the price, I expected something more; my budget is too tight to spend money on a book I don't love.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  This is one really good source not only for what herbs to use, February 05, 2015
By plowboy
This is one really good source not only for what herbs to use, or how to use them but it is good to educate one's self about the dental staff and the different types of dentists and the different treatments available. Even dental X-rays are covered in detail.
