Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and destroys the bone that supports your teeth. Periodontitis can cause tooth loss or worse, an increased risk of heart attack or stroke and other serious health problems.
Periodontitis is common but largely preventable. Periodontitis is usually the result of poor oral hygiene. Brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily and getting regular dental checkups can greatly reduce your chance of developing periodontitis.
Why does this gum infection happen? Tartar build up!
Tartar is the name of the mineral deposit on teeth and as the time passes its amount increases. The best way to remove it is to visit a dentist but you can also do it at your home and save a few dollars!
What You Need
- Baking soda
- Himalayan sea salt
- Extra virgin organic coconut oil
- Tea tree essential oil
- Dental pick
The most popular and effective tool to remove the plaque is the baking soda.
Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt, and 1 tablespoon extra virgin organic coconut oil in a cup and then wet your toothbrush with warm water and dip it into the mixture. Scrub your teeth and spit. Do the process for 5 minutes.
Mix half a cup of warm water and 2-3 drops of tea tree essential oil. Rinse the mouth with the mixture for 1 minute, spit and then rinse with half cup of cool water.
Take a dental pick and rub the yellow tartar but make sure not to scrape your gums because it may damage and irritate them.
Rinse your mouth with 2 tablespoons of baking soda diluted in warm water. Repeat the process every second day.
