Believe it or not, turmeric, along with salt and a touch of asafoetida has been in use to keep teeth healthy. This may come as a surprise to many people due to the colour of turmeric but turmeric does work as a teeth whitener. But you need to make sure that it does not remain in contact with the teeth for over 30 minutes. How to make turmeric powder from fresh root
Use turmeric to make a toothpaste, mix together:
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda bicarbonate
1 tsp. lime or lemon juice
4 tsp. turmeric powder
Dip your toothbrush in this mixture, and rub it all over your teeth, to bleach them. Brush your teeth for not more than one minute twice per day . You can add mustard oil, and half a teaspoon of black pepper as well as some clove oil, to prevent any sort of tooth infection in the future.
So it really does not matter whether you are using turmeric toothpaste to bleach your teeth or for preventing any sort of mouth and gum infection, it works. Remember to roast the turmeric before you powder it .
