Tartar is an annoyance since it makes your teeth look yellow and can harm your dental health. You know sitting in the dental hygenist’s chair having it scraped away that you should find a better way to rid yourself of it as they always warn you about periodontitis. The good news is that there are some natural ways that you can rid yourself of tartar.
Strawberries and Tomatoes
Both strawberries and tomatoes contain high levels of Vitamin C in them, so you can rub them on your teeth to get a huge benefit. Leave it for about five minutes as this will soften your tartar making it easier to remove. You can rinse your mouth with water and a small amount of baking soda. This can also be done with lemons, berries, papaya, oranges, and bell peppers.
Cheese Before Meals
Aged cheeses, like cheddar and Swiss, should be eaten before meals to help soften tartar as they have a compound in them that neutralizes the acids in your food.
Take a tablespoon of baking soda and a half tablespoon of salt. Mix them in a cup. Dip your toothbrush into some water and then into the baking soda mixture. Brush your teeth, and be sure to spit. Repeat this process over and over for five minutes.
You’ll rinse your mouth with a cup of warm water mixed with a cup of hydrogen peroxide. Gargle with it for a minute before spitting it out. Rinse your mouth with a 1/2 cup of cold water.
Use a dental pick to scrape the tartar from your teeth as it’ll be softened, but be careful to protect your gums from scraping as this could be damaging to them.
Rinse with mouthwash. You’ll want to do this every other day.
Before going to bed, you can rub some orange peel along your teeth as this will help with bacteria overnight.
• Floss regularly.
• Use a soft bristled brush that can get into the spaces.
• Stimulate salivation by eating spicy foods as your saliva cleans your mouth naturally.
NOTE from Angel4Light:
This is a great article and worthy of putting these tips into common day practice.
Additionally I would recommend swishing 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening. With what? Equal parts of Coconut oil and baking soda and 1/3 the amount of tummeric. You can brush it on like toothpaste then swish, spit in trash not the sink. Taste good and also stops tooth aches.
This has a polyphia of benefits for the health of your teeth but also helps to kill the bacteria in your mouth which is the cause of much tooth decay and other health issues. I will place those articles up for you again.
I can honestly say that these tips work and has eliminated my trips to the Dentist. Not that I miss going.
