Oral hygiene is of utmost importance. If you already have plaque on your teeth, do not let the tooth pain, gum swelling, and increased sensitivity from this bacterial infection trouble you anymore.
Use these amazing home remedies to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Keep your teeth and mouth healthy with all natural scrubs and cleansing solutions.
1. WHITE VINEGAR
White vinegar contains acetic acid that can help prevent demineralization of enamel as well as prevent and reduce accumulation of plaque. It also has antibacterial properties.
A 2014 study published in the International Journal of Advanced Health Sciences suggests that a significant amount of dissolution of plaque dextran was observed in vinegar (4 percent acetic acid) as compared to distilled water and glycerin.
- Mix 2 teaspoons of white vinegar and 1 teaspoon of salt in ½ cup of warm water.
- Rinse your mouth with this mixture once or twice a day.
2. MIXING ALOE VERA AND GLYCERINE
The benefits of aloe vera gel have been praised for decades, but did you know that it can also be used to keep teeth free from plaque? Take a cup of water, combine it with half a cup of baking soda, and a teaspoon of aloe vera gel. Then, add a healthy dose of lemon essential oil and four teaspoons of a vegetable glycerine. Now, scrub your teeth with the formula and wake up to a shiny set of gnashers in the morning.
3. RUBBING THE TEETH WITH ORANGE PEEL
If you don’t fancy rubbing vegetable glycerine on your teeth, you might prefer something a little simpler. You can rub orange peel directly onto your teeth and this will help to fight tartar building microorganisms on the enamel. You can also mash up the peel (though this may take some time) and apply it to the stained areas. Leave to rest and then rinse. You should find that this noticeably whitens the teeth.
Melt a few tablespoons of coconut oil and use as a mouthwash. This magical oil prevents bacteria formation in the mouth, cleans the inside of your mouth more efficiently, prevents cavities, and make your teeth white.
Most importantly, you need to spend a good amount of time brushing your teeth—2-3 minutes at least. You should not only carefully brush your teeth, but also clean your tongue for proper dental hygiene.
