acquire a beautiful white color. 

 

=Camphor Paste.=--Take one ounce of oil ammoniac, four drams of camphor. 

Let the above be very finely powdered, then mix it with sufficient 

honey to make it into a smooth paste; triturate it until entirely 

smooth. This is a most excellent paste for preserving and beautifying 

the teeth. 

 

=Preservative Tincture for the Teeth and Gums.=--Take four drams of 

camphor, one ounce of tincture of myrrh, one ounce of tincture of 

bark, and one ounce of rectified spirits of wine; mix them, and put 30 

or 40 drops in a wineglassful of water. Pour a little of this upon 

your brush before you apply it to the powder, and when the teeth are 

clean, wash the mouth, teeth, and gums with the remainder. It will in 

ordinary cases prevent toothache. 

 

=Powerfully Cleansing Dentifrice.=--Take fine powder of pumice stone, 

four drams; fine powder of cuttlefish bone, four drams; add one 

scruple of subcarbonate of soda. Mix them well together, color and 

scent according to taste, and then pass it through a fine sieve. 

 

=Infallible Cure for Toothache.=--Take alum, reduced to an impalpable 

powder, two drams; nitreous spirits of ether, seven drams. Mix, and 

apply them to the tooth. This is said to be an infallible cure for all 

kinds of toothache, unless the disease is connected with rheumatism. 

 

=Mixture for Decayed Teeth.=--Make a balsam with a sufficient quantity 

of honey, two scruples of myrrh in fine powder, a scruple of gum 

juniper, and ten grains of rock alum. A portion to be applied 

frequently to the decayed tooth. 

 

=To Whiten and Beautify the Teeth.=--Take gum tragacanth, one ounce; 

pumice stone, two drams; gum arabic, one ounce; cream of tartar, one 

ounce. Dissolve the gums in rose-water, and adding to it the powder, 

form the whole into little sticks, which are to be dried slowly in the 

shade, and afterwards kept for use. Use on the brush like soap.
