Support Your Oral Microbiome

Nov 7, 2022

The oral microbiome is a community of microorganisms, predominantly bacteria, found within our mouths.  At our dental clinic in Toronto, we understand how the health of the entire body is closely related to the health of our oral microbiome. Our oral microbiome is crucial to health as it can cause both oral and systemic diseases. By supporting a healthy microbiome, we’re able to support our oral and overall health.

There are many ways we can support our oral microbiome including:


  • Eating mineral rich foods, getting plenty of healthy fats, eating lots of non-starchy vegetables, eating foods rich in Vitamin K and drinking a lot of water to stay hydrated.
  • Eliminating many refined carbohydrates and reducing sugar intake (sugar can upset your biome in as little as one day).


  • Yes, it sounds strange, however mouth-taping while asleep can help significantly reduce dry mouth issues by forcing you to breathe through your nose while sleeping.

Good at-home oral care regimen:

  • Routinely brushing and flossing your teeth properly are crucial to keeping the biofilm in your oral microbiome properly managed.
  • Include tongue scraping and oil pulling in your daily oral care routine.
  • Ditching conventional mouthwash and using a mouthwash with ingredients such as essential oils to support the microbiota in your mouth.

A very important part in keeping your oral microbiome healthy and happy includes making sure to go for your routine dental cleanings and checkups. At our wholistic dental clinic we will even make a custom mouthwash for you to help your oral microbiome thrive without harsh ingredients of conventional grocery store mouthwash. Give us a call today to make an appointment!
