A recent article in The Blade (http://www.toledoblade.com/Medical/2017/05/15/Using-essential-oils-to-treat-illness-a-growing-trend.html) discussed the growing trend of using essential oils – derived from plants, fruits and herb extracts – to treat a variety of illnesses. We continually look for treatment, techniques and procedures that produce the best oral health (and overall health) outcomes for our patients.
If you are looking for all natural essential oil treatments to help promote better oral health we prescribe the following two products. They both use essential oils to treat mouth issues and have been proven to show great results – results we have seen firsthand with our patients.
