4 Ways To Prevent Cavities Today!

Your Brightest Holidays Ever!


The holidays are here, which means blessings and new beginnings. But there's one thing you don't want the beginning of - cavities.

But with gingerbread cookies, hot chocolate, and (MORE) gingerbread cookies getting passed around, it's hard to ensure your teeth are protected this holiday season.

Left unchecked, this can spell problems for your teeth. Nearly thirty percent of adults already have cavities that are untreated. And these cavities can get worse, causing you further dental problems down the line. (1)

But there ARE ways you can PREVENT CAVITIES TODAY! In this blog we discuss what cavities are, and four steps you can take to prevent them!




When looking at what cavities are, we first need to take a look at plaque.

Plaque is the buildup of food and bacteria on your teeth. This buildup leaves behind acid that erodes the enamel of your teeth, leading to tooth decay and holes in your teeth, or cavities. (2)

These holes deepen over time, eventually threading the nerves of your teeth, fracturing their structure and exterior. (3)

This is when your new year suddenly goes off the rails, as cavities cause speaking, learning, and concentration problems, with long-term health problems that can even be fatal. (4)


QUICK TIP: Brush your teeth at least twice a day with ALL-NATURAL TOOTH POWDER. This will remove all that excess plaque and bacteria that cause cavities. (5)


Many people associate cavities with children, but everyone gets cavities, regardless of your age or past oral health. (6)

And it may not even be your fault. Your DNA may leave you predisposed to getting cavities, with children and people over 50 experiencing it the worst. (7) (8)

And now's the time to fix this problem. With sugary foods and drinks on the rise during the holidays, it makes it all the more important to practice GREAT ORAL HYGIENE now. (9)


Now that we know what cavities are, let's talk about the ways you can prevent them!





Though it seems obvious, the best way to prevent yourself from developing cavities is by simply brushing your teeth.

But believe it or not, 31% of people brush their teeth once or less a day.

Yup, that's right. And in a study conducted by Delta Dental, 2% of people ADMIT to not even brushing their teeth at all. (10)

Brushing your teeth less than two times a day leads to cavities, teeth staining, tooth decay, and gum disease. (11)


QUICK TIP: When brushing your teeth with ALL-NATURAL TOOTH POWDER, tilt your brush to a 45-degree angle. This will help remove any food trapped between your teeth. (12)


Every time you brush your teeth is important, but it's especially important you brush before bed. This will keep food from the day from breaking down your teeth and causing cavities. (13)



It's also necessary that you don't phone in your brushing. Brush all sides of your teeth - the front, back, and top - to ensure you're removing all the cavity-causing plaque from your tooth's surface. (14)

And though it can seem monotonous, brushing for two minutes will help keep the dentists and cavities away! (15)


For the most effective plaque-removing care, GO NATURAL with Garner’s Garden 100% All-Natural Tooth Powder, which uses activated charcoal to remove plaque, prevent cavities, whiten teeth, and control the pH of your entire mouth!



Brushing your teeth is a must when it comes to preventing cavities, but it's just as important that you follow it up with ALL-NATURAL MOUTHWASH.

Mouthwash instantly removes the bacteria in your mouth - the same bacteria responsible for cavities and tooth decay - and staves off periodontal and gum disease. (16)

Mouthwash also remineralizes your teeth, fortifying them so that whatever bacteria does try to break down your teeth doesn't get very far. Your stronger teeth will then stave off gingivitis and other oral problems you don't want. (17)


QUICK TIP: A general rule is to gargle your ALL-NATURAL MOUTHWASH for 30 seconds to a minute to get rid of all that nasty bacteria built up in your mouth. (18)


Another reason mouthwash is so important is because brushing your teeth only cleans 25% of your mouth. I'll repeat that:


Brushing Your Teeth Only Cleans 25% Of Your Mouth. (19)


But not all mouthwashes are created equal. In fact, alcohol and other chemicals in over-the-counter mouthwash cause canker sores and dry mouth, other causes of cavities. (120)

The chemicals and artificial ingredients in over-the-counter mouthwash can also weaken your teeth, and leave you vulnerable through the killing of healthy microbiomes in your mouth. (21) (22)


For an ALL-NATURAL MOUTHWASH that will prevent cavities and repel plaque, choose Garner's Garden 100% All-Natural Antibacterial Mouthwash, a fluoride-free solution that whitens teeth, remedies bad breath, and relieves inflammation in your mouth.




Not enough people do it, but it's really important. Why? Because your tooth has five surfaces, and your toothbrush only reaches three of them. That leaves almost half of your tooth vulnerable to plaque buildup and cavities. (23)

Flossing starts out difficult, but once you start, it does get easier (we promise!), and the benefits far outweigh any early pain or bleeding. (13)

Consistent flossing removes food that can be stuck in your teeth for days (or months), the same food particles that cause cavities. And as an added bonus, flossing also protects your gums! (24)


QUICK TIP: Flossing after brushing your teeth with ALL-NATURAL TOOTH POWDER will make your teeth feel AND look cleaner and healthier! (25)


Flossing dates back nearly two hundred years, and that's because it works. Flossing addresses all of the problems regular brushing can't, preventing cavities and the buildup of tartar. (26)



Tartar, also known as calculus, is the buildup of dangerous plaque along your gum line, a problem so dangerous only a dentist can remove it. (27)

Flossing removes plaque before tartar can surface and turn the bacteria into cavities. (24)




Since ancient times, people have been using the OIL PULLING practice for their oral hygiene. And even though this technique is ancient, it's taken the world by storm in recent years.

In fact, a new study reveals that oil pulling lowers the amount of plaque in your mouth just as effectively as over-the-counter mouthwash (without all the dangerous side effects). (28)

Oil pulling does this because bacteria and oil are hydrophobic, meaning they mix, allowing the bacteria to be flushed out more easily. (29)


QUICK TIP: Prone to mouth pain? Oil pulling reduces inflammation in your mouth, allowing you to get back to eating what you want. Try ALL-NATURAL OXY PULLING and enjoy your holiday treats today! (30) (31)


Oil pulling also reduces cavities by lowering the acidity in your mouth. Without getting too scientific, it does this because the oil is alkaline, countering the plaque in your mouth. (32)

Testimonials all over the world also sing the praises of oil pulling for its ability to whiten teeth and prevent gum disease, causing greater overall oral health. (33)

And considering there are hundreds of different types of bacteria in your mouth (of which many are bad), oil pulling is necessary to prevent the buildup of dangerous disease-causing bacteria.
