Today we’re going to share with you an excellent home remedy that will not only eliminate plaque from your teeth, it will help you whiten your teeth and prevent you from having gingivitis.
The sticky, soft film of bacteria that builds up on your teeth, dental fillings, gums, and tongue is called plaque. But, when multiple layers of plaque combine with minerals present in your saliva, it hardens into a white, chalky calcified substance called tartar.
This creates a breeding ground for the oral bacteria that feed on sugars from the food you eat. Also, it forms acid during this process that breaks down the tooth enamel, leading to dental cavities. Bacteria also produce toxins causing various gum problems.
Several factors contribute to plaque buildup, such as improper oral hygiene, bad brushing technique, heredity and lack of professional care.
In addition to regular dental hygiene, you can use this homemade recipe to remove plaque and tartar. Remember, once the tartar has mineralized on your teeth, it is extremely difficult to remove.
– One spoonful of baking soda (aluminum free)
– Half a teaspoon of sea salt
– Half a cup of hydrogen peroxide
– Antiseptic mouthwash
– Half a cup of warm water
– Half a cup of cold water
– One cup
Mix the salt and the baking soda in the cup and when you made the paste, you should moist the brush in the warm water and then with the paste you’ve prepared, brush the teeth gently and then, spit. Do this for five minutes. Mix the warm water and the hydrogen peroxide to rinse the mouth for one minute and rinse again with the cold water. Remove the yellowish scale with the floss but don’t irritate or hurt the gums. Use the mouthwash to get better results and get cleaner mouth.
Keep in mind this is best done every single day as a routine, is rinsing your mouth clean with Listerine or any other antiseptic mouthwash.
This will not only freshen your breath, but the washing will poke out whatever little plaque and tartar you missed earlier.
Carry out this four-step routine once every two weeks, combined with a routine of brushing properly twice daily and a Listerine wash in the morning every day. You will see visibly whiter, shinier, stronger teeth in a month, we promise.
