14 Days To Protecting Young Smiles
Catch All The Bad Bugs
Detox from the sugar onslaught
Get stronger, whiter teeth, healthier mouth & body: the world’s only children’s coconut oil pulling mouthwash.
Exclusively created with the Vitalock System™ raw alkaline anti-bacterial anti-viral organic extra virgin coconut oil with 62% MCTs and peppermint from organic Fairtrade farmers
Learn about the MouthMonsters oral health range. Fun to use, natural and the world’s only oil pulling mouthwash sourced from raw, alkaline, organically farmed coconut oil and natural herbal essences – here’s the story behind this innovative oral hygiene brand.
When Angela’s own teeth began to discolour, Angela began to question how this could be happening.
Angela is cofounder of the world’s first and only MouthMonsters children’s oil pulling mouthwash, desperately needed because of the children’s oral health crisis and the safe organic, alkaline, detoxing formula.
Angela and partner Robbie rigorously researched and with their professional team created a much needed product.safe, natural oral hygiene products for children. Currently, most oral health products contain additives and chemicals. Children CANNOT use conventional chemical mouthwashes – because of the dangers of swallowing.
The World's First Coconut Oil Pulling Mouthwash
At last there is a safe, natural oral hygiene product for children: the world's first coconut oil pulling mouthwash.
Currently, most oral health products contain additives and chemicals. Children CANNOT use conventional chemical mouthwashes – because of the dangers of swallowing.
At last there is a safe, natural oral hygiene product for children. Currently, most oral health products contain additives and chemicals. Children CANNOT use conventional chemical mouthwashes – because of the dangers of swallowing.
In contrast, coconut oil pulling is
- With clinically proven ingredients
- Solution to the sugar epidemic in our society
- Approved by Dentist and Health Professionals
- Proven to remove up to 8 billion Bad Bugs – bacteria, fungi, viruses, even parasites
Old school children’s toothcare products are not working. According to dentists and government research, oral health is at crisis point.
Frustrated by the lack of options available, Angela decided that, with husband David’s biology background and working with US biochemist Jonathan Becthtel, they would create a product that not only met their standards in terms of safety, but would also taste delicious and be easy to use.
From there, MouthMonsters was born.
Ensuring nothing but the best when it comes to your dental hygiene, MouthMonsters is made from natural ingredients which are completely safe to swallow.
Here, Angela explains a little bit more about MouthMonsters’s range of unique natural oral health products:
- Tell us a bit about MouthMonsters, what exactly is it all about?

All MouthMonsters products are made using organic and natural ingredients – perfect for the conscious consumer.
Being the Mum of five children and three grandchildren, my husband and I have always explored and supported comprehensive health therapies when it comes to our personal health.
We believe in Integrative Medicine – the best of conventional, complementary and alternative health.
We developed a deep interest in natural and organic products decades ago, when we discovered natural cures for my Father’s gout, a family tendency to depression and bi-polarity along with the myriad ailments which children come into contact with.
My husband David has a background in biology and we work with an outstanding biochemist in the USA. We always look for clinical evidence and scientific trials so that we have a well-rounded understanding of how best to combine leading edge medicine with natural, organic, holistic therapies.
In my opinion, it’s essential to have an effective and safe product which is cruelty-free.
We knew that if we could create an oilpulling formula which is entirely natural, effective, with zero sugar or sweeteners and which which is super convenient to use whether you’re at home or travelling, we would make a real difference to children’s health.
- What inspired you to start MouthMonsters?
Well, firstly it was my own experience.
My own Grandson, Max, aged 4 had to have 4 teeth removed. Max’s parents and I were devastated. And determined to prevent this happening again.
Children were already using our Mintycoco. But the sachets were too big, designed or adults.
We wanted to make it fun – to Gamify the experience.
To explain how the MouthMonsters can “Go and catch all the Bad Bugs”.
To make areal difference.
Then when I discovered the extensive clinical trials and research, I knew we had to create this solution.
So many children and adults suffer terribly from poor health. And “All disease starts in the mouth” according to many eminent Doctors, including Dr Bruce Fife.
Even worse, the health impacts of tooth decay and gum disease impact the entire body, with proven links to heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and ongoing inflammatory processes in the body.
It’s just so hard for parents because sugar and processed foods are everywhere.
Old school mouthwashes, toothbrushing and flossing are not solving the problem.
According to the Dental Association, it can be dangerous to use conventional chemical mouthwash because of health hazards. It should definitely NOT be used by children under 6.
Many, many people are refusing to use conventional chemical mouthwash, linked to oral cancer and more than 4 million recalls.
But something is needed. In the typical mouth there are 8 billion bad bacteria, viruses, fungi. When gum disease and tooth decay are particularly bad, these bad bugs also attract parasites living in the mouth.
According to esteemed medical researcher and author Dr Bruce Fife, “All Disease Starts In The Mouth".
David C Kennedy DDS, who’s highly respected around the world on the topic of oral health, reports that , "At the age of 15, gum disease has already begun in 60% of children".
“We know that it’s really important for all of us to use natural non-toxic oral health products – because it’s too easy to swallow mouthwash and toothpaste instead of spitting it out.
“Our inspiration comes from wanting the best for our own family and our extended world-wide family, creating a safer and healthier environment both in the home and on the planet.”
- What separates you from the generic supermarket brands? Why should we be using MouthMonsters?
The soft tissue of children’s gums readily absorbs any nutrients or chemicals that a product may contain. Mainstream mouthwashes found in the supermarkets, pharmacies and online contain a complex blend of chemicals which you would not knowingly allow near your body – let alone put in your child’s mouth!
MouthMonsters stands out from all other mouthwash and oilpulling brands because it is the safest on the market to swallow.
The formula contains beautiful plant-based ingredients, such as organic, raw, alkaline, virgin coconut oil naturally flavoured peppermint or strawberry, which is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-viral. And in the formula we’ve made with our unique Vitalock raw alkaline extra virgin organic coconut oil, it tastes like a mint and strawberry icecream!
- What exciting things do you have planned for this year?
We’ve set up a GiveBack arrangement with a super children’s charity near where our coconuts are organically farmed and hand picked.
The Rainbow Centre enables children to escape extreme poverty. We’ve already made more than 1,080 Giving Impacts and we can’t wait to help further. We’re hoping to visit Sri Lanka this year to have time both with the farmers and these children.
Oral health in general and mouthwashes in particular are ripe for disruption.
Dominated by Listerine, with $60bn annual turnover and $13bn annual profits, we know that parents are no longer content to use toxic chemicals linked to industrial cleaning agents, oral cancer and more than 4m recalls.
Oil pulling has been trending online since 2005, based on 3,000 Ayurvedic practices, backed with numerous clinical trials and scientific research papers. Oil pulling is endorsed by Dental and Medical health professionals, celebrities, politicians, athletes, Vogue editors and health conscious consumers.
We’re super excited about making a difference to oral health globally.
- Quite often, it can be a challenge to look after your children’s teeth. What are some of your top tips to help with this?
We know that everyone’s busy – and we also know about the proven benefits of mindfulness and good habits.
Establishing the habit of oilpulling with MouthMonsters in the morning not only protects your oral health – it helps detox your entire body and stills the mind.
MouthMonsters is super easy to use, you just sip, swish and afterwards spit out the MouthMonsters.
The huge bonus which Mums rave about? The Moments Of Morning Calm – the silence when the family is oil pulling. Bliss!
- How do you manage to balance both work and family?
Ah, that’s been a work in progress for nearly 30 years!
When I had my first children, I created a real live theme park from scratch, to recreate my country childhood for my sons and everyone else too – because I realized that I’d had a very lucky, happy childhood. So all of our children grew up on a theme park and a farm.
It was magical.
We emigrated to Australia to have some family adventure time, because we wanted to have more time with our children before they were all grown up and flown from the nest!
Crealy Great Adventure Parks is still in our family, now operated by my brother Chris and his family.
So it’s a question of priorities I guess. You can only do what you can do. Work life balance can be challenging at times – it’s just important to remember that you can do everything, not just all at the same time!
Most of all, we love to create solutions, just have time together and travel. Family times are the best times!
- What are your hopes for the future, both personal and for MouthMonsters?
That’s easy: there are four priorities for us.
One is to spend time with family and friends. A second is to work with awesome people and run business in a Humanity Plus way – that’s positive for people, the planet, and putting profits to good use.
The third is linked to that: when MouthMonsters help our customers and their children, every sale supports children escaping extreme poverty. We believe this is a small world and it’s important to share prosperity so that peace flourishes.
The fourth priority – and these are all pretty equal, so in no particular order, is of course helping people enjoy the very best through the world’s first and only children’s oil pulling mouthwash.
More Information From MouthMonsters:
We know that in a typical child's mouth there are up to 8 billion microorganisms and 700 different species of microbes. That’s more bacteria in your child's mouth right now than there are people on the planet!
And just like some people, some of those are the Bad Guys.
The Bad Bugs which cause rotten teeth and ill health.
According to the Australasian Academy of Paediatric Dentistry, "Most of the children I’ve treated with significant oral health problems have been under the age of two”.
In New Zealand “41% of 5 year olds have rotten teeth”
In the UK, “children’s rotting teeth is a crisis”
In the US, it's the “#1 chronic childhood illness” and “Nearly one in four children under age five already has cavities…Millions of Americans are living in what amounts to a dental health crisis.”
And “decay won’t just impact baby teeth. If the bacteria are allowed to thrive… they will colonize and stick around for years, attacking the permanent teeth when they come in.”
In Canada, “Canadian children continue to have a high rate of dental disease.”
Globally, we are facing “a pending public health crisis”.
So what can you do?
Toxins in the mouth and plaque on the teeth directly contribute to ill health throughout the body - as well as rotten teeth and inflamed gums. We've all seen children with bad breath, bleeding gums, mouth ulcers, cavities and tooth pain.
Sometimes it’s really serious.
When you brush your child's teeth or floss, and there's any bleeding in the mouth, that means the bacteria and fungi have direct access to the bloodstream. This fast-tracks inflammatory responses, often with serious consequences.
If your child is constantly suffering from colds and tummy bugs, the cause could well be in the mouth.
More information: http://bitemagazine.com.au/the-great-disconnect, http://bitemagazine.com.au/a-whole-new-world-of-bacteria - and see sources at the foot of this article.
Old style children's toothcare is not enough. We are losing the war for children's oral health.
Additional solutions are essential.
Coconut oil pulling is being increasingly adopted by dental and medical professionals, athletes and celebrities. Considering as many as 70% of us have gum disease and tooth decay releasing toxic bacteria and fungi into our mouths, the clinical evidence for oil pulling's effectiveness is compelling. The benefits of oil pulling are overwhelming.
Till now there hasn't been an oil pulling solution for children.
There's not enough profit in it for the big pharmaceutical or MLM companies. MouthMonsters is a family business content to take smaller profit margins and has a Fair Family Pricing Policy.
Using only premium ingredients, we've worked long and hard to make exactly the right all-natural formulas. Tried and tested. Totally safe. Beautifully easy for you and your child to use.
We know that the biggest difference of all, though, can be for our children.
When you’re looking for a 100% pure mouth-cleaning solution that targets junior tooth decay - which every single Dental Health Authority says is at crisis point - you want to harness all the power and pure natural goodness of virgin cold-pressed coconut oil naturally flavoured with mint and strawberry.
Let’s be honest, what you put in your child's mouth should be simply clean and natural.
No parabens, PEGs or phthalates.
No sulphates or silicones.
No mineral oil, no glycols.
No DEA or TEA.
No animal products.
No unnatural chemicals.

Child and adult dental health is declining:
UK - “Oral Health Of UK Kids Getting Worse: NHS Chief.” The Health and Social Care Information Center survey says that the oral health of kids in the UK is getting worse.
This trend saw 10 percent rise of hospital admissions among children due to severe tooth decay.
The report says boys were more likely to experience severe tooth decay than girls. Royal College of Surgeons' Dean of Dental Surgery Nigel Hunt describes the rise of tooth decay as unacceptable.
"It is absolutely intolerable that in this day and age, in a civilised country, children are having so many teeth out for decay, which is over 90% preventable.
"We need to stop talking and have action to bring several bodies together - the Royal College of Surgeons, Public Health England, NHS England, government and industry to make sure we improve all aspects of oral health."
"Not only is tooth decay distressing to children and parents, it has serious social and financial implications," he says.
The leading reason for hospital admissions among children aged 5 to 9 is tooth extraction. 90% of tooth decay is considered preventable.
Child tooth removal 'at crisis point', doctors warn
Doctors are calling for urgent action to reduce the number of children needing to have rotten teeth removed under general anaesthetic in hospital.
Nearly 26,000 children, aged five to nine, were admitted to hospital in England in 2013-14, up 14% from 2011, with tooth decay. The Royal College of Surgeons says many hospitals are reaching "crisis point" managing the number of children.
A report by the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) published in 2015 showed tooth decay was the most common reason five to nine-year-olds were admitted to hospital.
Approximately 46,500 children and young people under 19 were admitted to hospital with tooth decay in 2013-14, with 25,812 in the five to nine age group, a 14% increase since 2010-11.
The report says there may be several reasons for this rise, including children not accessing a dentist until it is too late or more children not brushing their teeth properly.
The RCS says £30m was spent on hospital-based tooth extractions for children aged 18 years and under in 2012-13.
"Many hospitals are reaching crisis point in managing the number of children referred for a general anaesthetic for tooth decay," said Prof Hunt.
July 2015: http://www.bbc.com/news/health-33498324
Australia: Toddlers as young as 18 months are having rotting teeth pulled out and in some cases older children are having all 20 of their baby teeth removed in major operations, dentists say.
Children are presenting with blackened teeth and pus-filled gums
A three-year-old had 11 teeth extracted, and (right) a two-year-old was often given soft drink, which had dissolved the teeth down to the gum, exposing the nerve.
"It is very sad because you can imagine the impact on that child when they have to go to school with no teeth and try to function without them. It is quite upsetting," she said.
"It is not uncommon to be taking out 12 or 14 baby teeth in one go. We would do that quite frequently."
More than 1000 children underwent general anaesthetic at the Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne in 2015, mostly to get multiple decayed teeth removed. Of these, 178 were three or under.
Dr Beaumont said the extractions often had lifelong consequences only fixed with expensive orthodontic treatment.
The Australian Dental Association says as many as 10% of children who have rotten teeth taken out were returning a later date to have more removed. A total of 164,785 children received dental care from the Dental Health Services Victoria in the past financial year, many of them for tooth decay.
The ADA’s Professor Manton said the Australian average for four-year-olds was to have one tooth with decay, with most of those remaining untreated. A recent survey of more than 600 children found that just over one-third of the children had evidence of decay.
90% of adults in the US have significant tooth decay or gum disease
Between 1994 and 2013 in Australia, the proportion of people uncomfortable about their dental appearance increased from 20% to nearly 27%. The proportion with toothache increased from 11% to 16% over the same period.
According to the American Dental Association, tooth loss appears related to the onset of disability and mortality, raising important clinical issues for prevention and geriatric care. The fewer natural teeth you have at the age of 70, indicates aging at an accelerated rate. Elders fewer teeth at age 70 were significantly more likely to report mobility problems such as difficulty walking or climbing stairs and with greater mortality, said a Reuters Health report.
"It is important to take poor dental health seriously in that these people may be at greater risk of general physical and/or cognitive decline," Dr. Poul Holm-Pedersen of the Copenhagen Gerontological Oral Health Research Center told Reuters Health.
USA: According to research from The Pew Charitable Trusts, high rates of dental disease and lack of access to care affect significant numbers, project director Margaret Langelier told the House Health and Welfare Committee.
"We still have a long way to go," said the Center for Health Workforce Studies at the University of Albany School of Public Health in New York.
Dental and oral health problems, such as cancer or other diseases of the mouth and gums, remain a significant problem in poor rural areas such as Kentucky.
Kentucky still has a high rate of adults over 65 who have had all their natural teeth extracted. About 25 percent of such adults have no teeth, making Kentucky the fifth worst in the nation.
