Herbal Gum and Tooth powder recipes
My Favorite: Dr. Christopher’s Gum and Tooth Powder recipe
For severe cases place this powder combination between the lips and gums (up and lower) around entire tooth area and leave on all night, six nights a week (as well as brushing regularly) until improvement is evident. Then continue on with regular tooth brushing with this herbal food combination.
3 parts oak bark
1 part oat straw
6 parts comfrey root
3 parts horsetail grass
one part lobelia
one part cloves
3 parts peppermint
(powdered stevia – optional)
Chose a measuring device like a tsp, tbs, tea cup, cup, bowl etc depending on how much herbs you have and how much formula you are making and combine them all into a bowl and then bottle it. I would buy cut and sifted herbs if you have a vitamix to powder them or maybe a mortar and pestle or hammer to crush them over powdered as the powdered lose the volatile herbs but you might want powdered. It is up to you I guess..then apply between gums and teeth and leave on overnight 6 days a week, one day off and then repeat. Also herbs work best if used 6 weeks on and one week off.

Homemade Tooth & Gum Oil
For receding, rotting gums and teeth, diseased dental bone
10 oz Echinacea Tincture
¼ cup Tea tree oil
4 oz Bayberry tincture
2 oz Oak Gall (or 3x oak bark) tincture
2 tbs Cayenne tincture
2.5 dropperfuls Peppermint oil
2.5 dropperfuls Clove oil
Shake well before use. Note: Dropperful = ½ way up the dropper. Use organic ingredients.
Apply directly to gums, or swish around the mouth with water (dropperful into 1 ounce of water). Twice a day at least.
Oil pulling after brushing
Take a tablespoonful of coconut or sesame seed oil and swish it around in your mouth for a few minutes after brushing. It relieves inflammation.
