If you want to stay healthy, you need to pay more attention to your oral health. Taking proper care of your teeth and gums is essential for proper health and appearance as well – after all, who wants to have stained and rotten teeth that completely ruin your image?
One of the main oral problems around the world is the accumulation of tartar (plaque) on the teeth. Besides being aesthetically unpleasant, this accumulation can also cause gingivitis and other oral problems, and is usually caused by poor dental hygiene. The only way to remove it is visiting your dentist, but you should know that there are natural ways of removing it, and we’re going to show you the best one.
Here’s a homemade remedy that will remove the plaque from your teeth and whiten them at the same time:
- Antiseptic mouthwash
- ½ a cup hydrogen peroxide
- ½ a teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- ½ a cup warm water
- ½ a cup cold water
- Dental floss
First, mix the baking soda and sea salt in a clean cup. Now, dip the toothbrush under hot water and in the mixture afterwards, then brush your teeth with it for 4-5 minutes. Spit out in the end – this will soften the plaque and make it easier to remove.
The next step includes mixing the hot water and hydrogen peroxide. Rinse your mouth with the mixture to soften the plaque further, then spit out and rinse with the cold water. Finally, take the dental floss and gently rub the plaque with it. Make sure not to damage your gums, and use the antiseptic mouthwash in the end. Repeat the process every night before going to bed, and the plaque will be gone from your teeth before you know it.
Besides this process, you’ll also need to brush your teeth twice a day and use dental floss regularly. Stick to these tips, and your teeth will be pearly white soon!
