I’ve always had a ‘no, thanks’ approach to flossing. I find flossing cumbersome and time consuming. That was until my dentist warned me about losing my teeth in the future and lectured me on tartar buildup in-between my teeth. I have great teeth (more than a few dentists have told me so) so losing them is definitely not in my life plan. From that day onwards, I started flossing daily.
My gums were so weak that they bled. A lot. I switched to a non-alcoholic mouthwash to reduce sensitivity and it took a while for them to improve. I wished I had known about this oral rinse from The Natural Dentist then. Well, it’s better late than never.
This unique mouthwash is made with 20% Aloe Vera that helps protect against gingivitis. It is alcohol-free and also free of synthetic flavor and color. To naturally freshen breath, this contains Chlorophyll which is naturally green. So it gives this mouthwash a light-green shade.
I like how this is so gentle on delicate gums and how it reduces and prevents bleeding gums. My gums still bleed from time to time during flossing but after using this, I bleed less. It has a slight Hydrogen Peroxide taste that takes a few uses to get used to but once I did, it wasn’t a big deal. What it did for my gums outweighed the taste issue.
