Several infections of the mouth can cause real health issues so dental health is very important. Heart diseases, stroke and different respiratory problems are related with poor dental health. In order to keep your body healthy, you should visit the dentist on a regular basis and you should also keep the mouth healthy between visits as well.


The recent study that was conducted by Athlone Institute, coconut oil has extremely powerful effect to our oral health. It stops bacterial growth in the mouth and acts as a potent antibacterial agent.

S Mutans and Streptococcus are acid producing bacteria which contribute to tooth decay in both adults and children.

The lead researcher from Athlone Institute, Dr. Damien Brady sates:

“It would be an attractive alternative to chemicals additives if we incorporate enzyme modified coconut oil into dental products. We should also pay attention to new ways to combat microbial infections because we have increasing antibiotic resistance.”

Most of the conventional toothpastes are full of triclosan, fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate, aspartame and many other chemicals that harm our overall health.
