249Smiles.Com is New York, based online marketing company specializing in bringing natural and organic dental health products such as natural charcoal whitener toothpaste, tea tree oil mouthwash, electric toothbrushes, floss, flossers, and other products selectively chosen and distributed via our AMAZON store. Our mission, our goal, and the objective are simple! Keep you healthy by keeping your mouth healthy.
Oral health is not about going to the dentist as often as possible. Sure, your dentist loves to see you! Every time you visit him or her is a new chance to charge you or your insurance company. Trust us you are not going to find one single dentist in Miami that will tell you “your mouth looks pretty good, there is no charge for this visit!” What is troubling is that despite the amount of information out there, the majority of people still trust what desist do and recommend without questioning and or doing any research. You see the more you grind, scrape, and scratch your teeth the more likely they are to fail and the more dental treatment you are going to need. I have traveled all over the world, and I am stunned at the quality of people’s teeth in places like the Himalayas, the Andes mountain range, and even the Amazon rainforest. Understand something, in many of these places, there is no dentist insight, there are no dental checkups, and for sure there is no toothpaste with “Fluoride or SLS”!
In the United States, we have the capability we have the option to have excellent oral heal with fewer dental visits by simply being more selective with the products we put in our mouth. There is no shortage of natural mouthwash and or organic toothpaste on the internet! But why should you use these products? The trust is that the FDA has long ignored the number of chemicals (many of them questionable) in grocery store toothpaste and mouthwash. Yes, both your toothpaste and your mouthwash are full of chemicals that are not only poisonous but dangerous to our health! For example, Colgate is known for using quite a bit of “triclosan” while this substance has shown a minor improvement prevent gingivitis, the benefit comes at a huge cost. That is because triclosan is known for causing antibiotic resistance and endocrine disruption. Both detrimental to our survival in the case of infectious disease. Other studies have shown that endocrine-disrupting compounds can cause a variety of health problems later on in life. These include breast, ovarian, prostate, and testicular cancer, preterm and low birth weight babies, precocious puberty in girls, and undescended testicles in boys. Both the dental community and the FDA (fda.gov) tells us that although many of these chemicals and compounds are dangerous in large dosages, they are harmless in small quantities.
But how about a lifelong exposure? Nobody is talking about that! I wonder how the CEO’s and FDA officials involve in this studies feel about having their kids exposed to small amounts of radiation on a daily basis? We’ll bet you real money they would have an issue with that!
At the end of the day, we are not here to sell you anything; it is really up to you what type of quality of life you are looking to have! Especially in your later years! We, on the other hand, are strong advocates for things like the Paleo Diet, Natural and Organic Foods and Products and the least amount of invasive medical procedures as possible.
