Paleo Teeth Whitening?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 03, 2012 at 5:22 AM

Hi, I would like to have whiter teeth. Even though I do not drink tea or coffee, I have stains, not sure from what, maybe from beets or carrots. On top of it, my teeth are very sensitive and I cannot use any whitening products.

Things I have tried:

  1. baking soda

  2. strawberries

  3. oil pulling

Nothing works. I was thinking of getting a twig.

Have you tried it? Would you recommend it?

What worked for you and made your teeth whiter?

Thank you!

I already got rid of it. I had to restore my gut flora and get rid of parasites.

I've tried brushing with turmeric and it works very nicely, I do it on weekends now (I'd do it more often, but don't have the time to clean up the neon yellow on skin/sink all the time.)

I have fairly white teeth and have never had a cavity - and I'm 46 years old. Now, I cracked open the curry powder (the only tumeric I had around the house) and made the solution and brushed. Holy hell this works! My teeth are blindingly white. I look like I had one of those expensive blue light treatments. I'm not kidding. Best hack ever! Goodbye Crest!!!! I should mention that I have a big jar of cheap curry powder, it isn't even the "good" stuff. My teeth feel ultra smooth, too. Thanks, VB!

At another point in the video they did try brushing their teeth with a toothbrush - their reaction was... not so positive. They are still alive and well - how can they be re-created?

One thing I've always wondered is if white teeth are natural? I've been brushing with a coconut oil/baking soda mixture that is creamy-like for about six months now. I've been eating paleo, but with possibly too much fruit and definitely too much fast food. I don't think I have any cavities though. :) I'm going into the dentist for a check-up soon, and if there aren't any cavities, I'm going to continue for another six months and see what happens.

Anyway, onto your question, check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffYTPtnA1yk&feature=plcp

I've been following this guy for a while, and he puts out GREAT videos. I haven't personally tried this because I don't really care about the color of my teeth, but give it a shot if you're interested.

More offal, more grassfed ghee, cod liver oil, bone broths, fish eggs, and shellfish... dont throw out the green "tomalley"(the digestive gland) or in a female lobster, red "coral" or "roe" (the unfertilized eggs.)

No magic toothpaste will save your teeth. :-) Remineralized teeth will look whiter and less translucent.

If your teeth are sensitive, you may want to consider using xylitol which is known to help mineralize teeth.

"eff paleo" -- I like my teeth whiter and use whitening gel. They do make your teeth scream depending on how sensitive they are and/or the strength. But use lower strength and use enamel building product or xylitol before AND after and it should be minor discomfort.

Also max strength toothpaste for sensitive teeth is an option to consider too.

At one point in the video, the lady says "I chew on it until it is as soft as a toothbrush." I took that reference to mean that the twig is meant to work like as toothbrush. I would think that they would much rather have a toothbrush than a twig. Maybe it's my modern/US bias, but I would think that a toothbrush would be much more effective.

If you like the thought of it because it's "more paleo", perhaps it'd be worth trying. I'm not that much of a re-creationist.

not so much for whitening as for healthy effects

TO get rid of teeth sensitivity, you should need strong fluoride rinse because dentist always use fluoride gel to get relieve from teeth sensitivity pain. Some tips that everyone should use on daily basis like try to keep your teeth clean and use soft toothbrush.
