Aztec Sweet Herb, Figs, Plantain, Peppermint and Coffee- what have these natural plants to do with dentistry?

Hi, I have just added an exciting herb to my Northdays exploration. Aztec Sweet Herb produces a sweetener, which does not cause tooth decay, so it would make a good sweetener for dental care products, like mouthwash.

Before you charge out to buy Stevia, there are some considerations to observe re: the use of such discoveries.

I feel that, as ordinary citizens, we do not know enough about caring for and protecting our vital needs.
I know that one of my bodys' vital needs is to maintain correct digestion, so that keeping my teeth and gums healthy is a good start, and a requisite function before the body absorbs any nutrition.
I've listed some of the pages in Northdays (below) which relate to some lesser known dental meds or even difficulties coming from the natural kingdom. For instance, did you know that South American folk used coca leaves for tooth pain, while a very much more benign remedy for tooth pain (even for tooth abcess) comes from the Middle East? A boiled, warm fig can help you with a painful tooth before running to your dentist.
Neither remedy will be sufficient, of course, but each herb use reminds us that people in historic circumstance had to fend for themselves through observation, experimentation and foraging; without Google quick links, natural science needed to peer into the "doctoral signature" of each plant, its chemistry (perhaps via the aura) and, from various trials, created the brilliant medicine we know today.Figs

Reading from some of the sources for dental care, one finds that an herb (Plantain) can be used as an antiseptic gargle; however, Plantain, when taken per os in an anti-convulsant drug can cause tooth decay. Somehow, as I re-examine my account for some means of paying yet another dental bill, it seems so worth while to explore what I can do for my teeth, and what goes into what is done for my teeth, as well!!
