Teeth






Source: Papers On Health

In order to prevent decay, the teeth should be carefully
brushed at least once a day, preferably at night, but better still
after each meal. There is no better dentifrice than pure soap, and
M'Clinton's tooth soap, being specially prepared from the ash of plants
and a pure vegetable oil, does not leave the objectionable soapy taste
in the mouth which all soda soaps do.

The prevalence of bad teeth is believed by many to be due to processes
of milling, which remove the bone and enamel making properties of the
grain. So much of the natural salts of the grain are removed to make
bread white that it ceases to be the staff of life. A contributory
cause is the consumption of large quantities of sweets or candies,
especially between meals. White bread lodging in the teeth and thereby
producing acid fermentation, is believed to have a bad effect on them,
also too hot or ice-cold liquids. Remember also that the teeth cannot
be healthy if they are not exercised. The Scotch peasant when he ate
hard oat-cake had splendid teeth, as the Swedish peasants who eat hard
rye-bread still have. Sloppy foods hastily bolted will ruin the
digestion and thereby the teeth, besides depriving them of the work
essential to their good condition. If teeth do decay they should be
seen to by a dentist at once, as their presence in the mouth is
injurious to the general health.
