I-Mouthwash AND I-Tooth Powder
Thyroid Dysfunction has a negative effect on teeth and oral health. Here are some facts:
- Low thyroid levels are associated with periodontitis.
- Gingivitis, periodontitis, gum disease, bad teeth, dentures at age 25 and root canals at age 12 have all been reported by individuals with thyroid dysfunction.
- There is a definite connection between dental health and optimal thyroid levels.
- Thyroid hormone keeps the bones that support teeth healthy. If you don't have enough thyroid hormone, teeth and oral health suffer.
- Orthodontia may be unsuccessful in severely hypothyroid patients; it may result in root resporation which could result in tooth loss.
- Dental implants may be unsuccessful in severely hypothyroid patients because new bone formation around the implants is impaired.
Tooth decay is caused by a bug called Streptococcus mutants. Bugs in the gums affect oral health leading to gum disease, loose teeth, cavities and more. Iodine kills these bugs in a matter of seconds. Iodine is beneficial when it comes to preventing tooth decay and gum disease.
While the use of iodine in dental health has been used for more than 150 years, it has just now become more popular due to the increased knowledge of the role iodine deficiency plays in oral health. Iodine is a natural element that is needed in the body to maintain healthy thyroid function. The function of your thyroid can cause dental health complications. Iodine deficiency is directly linked to causing dental problems due to the endocrine dysfunction. This can lead to dry mouth, which is known to increase the risk for cavities and gum disease. In addition, inadequate amounts of iodine can lead to mouth breathing, a large swollen tongue and even bite complications, such as small jaws and anterior bite. Low iodine levels are known to contribute to Dental Distress Syndrome. Dental Distress Syndrome doesn’t just affect the mouth, but the entire body. Chronic symptoms develop as a result of dental dysfunction. The symptoms of the syndrome can include TMJ and poor oral health. However, symptoms can radiate to other areas of the body, such as the ears, eyes, neck, and skin.
I-Mouthwash cleans like no other over-the-counter mouthwash. I-Mouthwash stands for Iodine Mouthwash and is powered by iodine. With iodine in I-Mouthwash, nature’s chemistry is powering your mouthwash. Every time you swish, you’re getting fresh, active iodine (with natural peppermint flavoring) to keep your mouth healthy, while still tasting minty fresh. You might even feel like your teeth were freshly cleaned by your dental hygienist.
Having a cleaner mouth can impact your overall health. There are 20 billion bacteria in your mouth… and your mouth is the gateway to the body. In recent years, doctors have found links between oral health and debilitating illness such as diabetes, heart disease, eating disorders, and more. Oral health is strongly linked to whole-body health!

Preventive dentistry, like all of life, begins with anticipating what might happen and then making choices that will result in positive outcomes. To prevent the oral infections that contribute to cardiovascular and orthopedic disease, we must prevent tooth decay and gum infection. In concept, preventive dentistry is simple: Eat a healthy diet and keep your teeth clean! One of the ways to do this is adding iodine. Iodine is very effective — research shows that it prevents tooth decay and gum disease. It deeply disinfects, it’s inexpensive, and most of us are iodine deficient anyway. Iodine is actually what makes your teeth and bones stronger. It is great at killing bacteria, viruses, and parasites too!
