We don’t doubt that you have a well-maintained cleaning routine. But if you feel like you could do more for your pearly whites, your gums, your tongue and everything else, we have a few ideas: tweaking your toothpaste, a ten-second-long tongue-scratching habit and – when you’re ready, all to do – a two week reset with sachets of brilliantly minty coconut oil.

The toothpastes

  1. First, this toothpaste, which replaces fluoride with an ingredient called nano-hydroxyapatite (n-Ha), which has been the gold standard in Japanese dentistry for decades: it removes plaque, desensitizes, and remineralizes teeth. In addition, this toothpaste is free from parabens, SLS and artificial flavors and is subtly flavored with mint, green tea and cardamom.

  2. The fact that this toothpaste is fluoride and sulfate free is perhaps just a bonus because it tastes amazing. Naturally flavored with peppermint, spearmint and wintergreen leaf oil, it refreshes the breath and fights plaque. It also comes with a stylish metal key to roll the tube during use, and the packaging is completely recyclable, unlike traditional toothpastes.

  1. The floss

    If your dentist asks you if you are flossing, they can tell when you are lying. But some people don’t have to: there is a community of passionate flossers, and their loyalty is to Cocofloss. Cocofloss is made up of over 500 polyester filaments that feel amazing – the floss itself is thicker than we’re used to, but somehow it slips between your teeth more easily. Covered with coconut oil, it smells (slightly) of natural coconut, mint and other flavors. Once you try it you will never go back.

  2. The toothbrush

    Our non-electric toothbrush of choice is made from bamboo – which requires less water, land and labor to grow than wood – and has natural bristles instead of plastic bristles. We are happy to keep some of them ready for trips and house guests.

  3. The tongue cleaner

    This stainless steel loop was made to scrape debris off the tongue – an Ayurvedic practice for oral hygiene and fresh breath. It is equipped with two small handles for more control and comfortably extends to the back of the mouth. You can always clean your tongue with your toothbrush, but this provides a more comfortable feel than the bristles of a toothbrush and it also feels like it’s doing its job better.

  4. The mouthwash

    Inspired by his love for the sea and his passion for sustainability, dentist and surfer Christopher Perez developed this gentle mouthwash to treat our mouth – our “inner oceans” – with kindness. Instead of drying alcohols, Perez formulated the conditioner with rich sea salts, blue-green algae, algae extracts, echinacea, and essential oils. It smells slightly of the sea and gives you that clean feeling that you are looking for. Grab the smaller, stowable travel size for your work bag or hand luggage.

  5. The oil pulling set

    Give him two weeks and you’ll swear by oil pulling, the Ayurvedic oral health practice that involves rinsing oil in your mouth to get rid of excess ama or debris. This oil pulling set contains fourteen bags of light, minty coconut oil with essential oils of lemon, chamomile and myrrh. The kit is designed to be used for a complete mouth reset for fourteen consecutive days. Every day before you floss and brushes, just tear open a pack, pour the oil in your mouth, and swirl it around for five to fifteen minutes before spitting it in the trash can. (Coconut oil can clog your sink drain.) After the first fourteen days, flush twice a week to get results.

  6. The whitening strips

    These whitening strips use herbal ingredients to whiten teeth instead of hydrogen peroxide or other irritating chemicals typically found in mainstream brands. With Lumineux Strips you get a natural brightening from the combination of coconut oil, salt from the Dead Sea rich in minerals, soothing aloe vera and essential oils from mint, clove and basil. They are well suited for sensitive teeth and safe for mouths with composites, veneers and crowns.
