Dental Care And Health Benefits Of Clove

31 August 2015, Dabur Dental Team

The health benefits of clove or laung can be attributed to its antimicrobial, antifungal, antiseptic, antiviral, aphrodisiac and stimulating properties. The germicidal properties of the oil make it very effective for relieving dental problems, tooth ache, sore gums and mouth ulcers and bad breath. Clove is also effective against cavities and other dental problems. As a result, clove oil for teeth is added to numerous dental products and medications, including mouthwash and Dabur Red Toothpaste.

There are 3 forms in which you can use cloves to ease your pain and dental problems:

  • Ground: First, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and wash your hands. Take a pinch of the ground cloves and apply it between the gum that is sore and your cheek. Wait till your spit mixes with the powder. The pain should subside quickly.
  • Whole: Rinse your mouth with warm salt water. Take 2 or 3 cloves and hold them in your mouth as close to the sore area as possible, and wait a few minutes until they start to soften. When they do get softer chew them lightly to release more of the oils.
  • Clove Oil Toothache Compress: Mix a few drops of clove essential oil with ½ teaspoon of olive oil. Thoroughly soak a cotton ball in this mixture and then hold it gently but firmly against the sore tooth or gum.

Apart from curing dental problems, there are also many health benefits associated with the using of clove. Clove oil is a sure-shot remedy for wound, cuts, scabies, athlete’s foot, fungal infections, bruises, prickly heat, scabies, and other types of injuries. Clove oil is often recommended for skin care. Both clove and clove oil are useful for boosting the immune system. Its antiviral properties and ability to purify blood increases resistance to a multitude of diseases, because the antioxidants in clove essential oil scavenge the body of dangerous free radicals that cause a multitude of diseases like heart disease and certain types of cancer. Clove oil increases your body’s metabolism by increasing blood circulation and reducing body temperature.
