MSM can help with providing relief from pain and inflammation from conditions like gingivitis, painful tooth aches, sensitivity, even teeth whitening, according to the very credible source, The Miracle of MSM. We have spoken many times about the range of health conditions that MSM (Organic Sulphur) can help with, but did you know these health benefits can also extend to your mouth too? By definition, Gingivitis refers to," the inflammation of the gums (gingiva). It commonly occurs because of films of bacteria that accumulate on the teeth - plaque; this type is called plaque-induced gingivitis. Making your own MSM mouthwash is a great way to help lessen the inflammation caused by plaque build up. To do this try half a teaspoon of MSM mixed into half a glass of water. Swish the mixture round your mouth making sure you get in between your teeth. Do this 2 3 times daily. For tooth sensitivities applying MSM in a paste form directly to the gum and tooth has been found by a holistic dentist in the USA to reduce the soreness and calm the sensitivity. He in fact uses it for patients that have had a great deal of dental work completed on their teeth, which often leads to increased sensitivity, with great success. In terms of teeth whitening, as we grow older, so do our teeth, which in turn leads to darkening and discolouration. Including MSM into your regular tooth brushing routine can assist with helping to keep your teeth from darkening. After brushing with your regular toothpaste, you can add some MSM onto your wet toothbrush. Let the MSM crystals dissolve into the toothbrush bristles and brush your teeth again, just as you would normally. Try this twice a day and see the difference in two weeks. As fantastic MSM is for helping with healing and providing pain relief for your teeth, you should always consult your dentist for dental pain.
