I have got to say reading this it seems to go against everything I have been taught about tooth health.

Brushing with a honey mixture sounds so far out there, yet strangely intriguing. I am wondering what in honey does the cleaning and bacteria fighting. I also wonder this about the olive oil as well.

I have to say I might have to give this a try (say a month or so) to see just how well it works.

Anyone know what the cleaning properties of either the oil or honey is?

I do had toothaches but not from drinks or foods but from toothpastes and i even had an tooth infection, so you might ask ok what did you use?

oil the same oil you use for making foods that tastes good

How long should you use it? well that depends how bad your teethes are or if you hate toothpastes that much and wanna try something new and better.

Recommended Days of use if tooth infection is expected
15-20 days its better to use it early in the morning, don't sallow it

results would be different for different people depending on your case, like i said its a good alternative from toothpastes or water.

Just use Bicarb Soda...
...put some in a small container, wet your brush and dip it in...
...clean and neutalizes acids.

Instead of mouthwash use 3 or 6% Hydrogen Pyroxide.

Things to keep in mind.

Baking soda is abrasive so doing it too often can remove the enamel.

Hydrogen peroxide will kill healthy cells as well as infected cells, it may irritate the gums after awhile.

Honey is antibacterial so may actually work as stated but I think you need to use unpasteurized.

Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) is good to use. It neutralizes acids. It also helps to maintain ph in the mouth.

I use Sodium Bicarbonate also; no fluoride whatsoever. For toothaches, vitamine C is an instant cure, see my thread here for more about this. Quickly, most tooth problems come from a lack of vitamine C: we're suffering from scurvy (yea, just a wedge of lime a day will do the trick: to cover the worst of it, not to cure it). Do olive oil and honey contain vitamine C? That would explain it.

I have heard of oil pulling... I have read that sesame oil is the best to use as it won't stain the teeth (supposedly olive oil will) I even tried it for a week, but couldn't get past the gag reflex and that was not in place of also brushing. I have also read that strawberries are natural teeth whiteners (eat them or mash them up and brush with them)... Lots of folk remedies out there and many of the so-called "natural" ways are very harsh and can destroy enamel. User beware...

We are not talking about making something up though in order to clean our teeth. Rather, we should look on techniques that worked for people before commercial toothpaste was so popular. If these techniques worked at older times, why shouldn't they work now?

Also, consider that nowadays, toothpastes are full of fluoride, which binds to some specific receptors in the brain that it shouldn't bind to, causing diseases such as parkinson's altzheimers, etc.

Have you guys considered stabilized chlorine dioxide.

ATS Post

Method of making molecular chlorine dioxide United States Patent 6231830 A method for manufacturing molecular chlorine dioxide, by the addition of potassium iodide to a solution of alkali metal chlorite. The metal chlorite and the potassium iodide are kept separate, until the need for the generation of chlorine dioxide arises--to ensure long-shelf life. After initiation or activation of the chlorite anion to form chlorine dioxide, the beneficial properties of chlorine dioxide can be used, for different health and cosmetic purposes. Such uses include the treatment of herpes, dandruff, acne, skin rashes (e.g. poison ivy), ulcers, bed sores, warts, nail fungus, athletes foot, sun burn and gum disease; and as an antiseptic, disinfectant, and general deodorant form refrigerator sprays to oral mouthrinses.
