6 Natural ways to get rid of dental plaque
Smile, because now you can remove dental plaque easily, in your own bathroom, using products you already have at home. Check out the list and let us know how it went!
1. Remove dental plaque with baking soda.
Baking soda acts as a natural scrub, so it has a ton of uses. One of them is to clean your teeth: Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with a pinch of salt, dip your wet toothbrush in the powder and brush your teeth. Repeat, but no more than once a week, because it may harm your teeth enamel.
2. Make an Aloe Vera and glycerin mix to remove dental plaque.
You can make your own toothpaste at home, using the following ingredients:
- one cup of water
- 1/2 cup of baking soda
- one tablespoon of Aloe Vera Gel
- 4 tablespoons of vegetable glycerine
- one tablespoon of lemon essential oil
Mix the ingredients together and brush your teeth with your homemade toothpaste.
3. Use orange peel to clean your teeth.
Don't throw away the orange peel after you've eaten the delicious fruit! Instead, rub the white part all over your teeth to get rid of dental plaque. Afterwards, brush your teeth normally or simply rinse with water.
4. Clean your teeth with sesame seeds.
Another easy way to clean your teeth is by chewing sesame seeds. Take a handful of seeds, chew on them for a few minutes, then spit them out. Remove the remaining seeds using a dry brush, then rinse with water.
5. Fruits and veggies tooth mask.
Vitamin C is a great ally in preventing dental plaque. Mash together fruits and veggies that are rich in Vitamin C, such as tomatoes, strawberries or oranges and put the paste on your teeth, like a mask. Keep it there for 5-6 minutes, then rinse with water and enjoy the bacteria-free smile and the freshened breath.
6. Use vinegar to naturally clean your teeth.
This is clearly not as tasty as the previous dental plaque remedy, but it is as effective. You'll need to make a solution of vinegar (2 tablespoons), salt (one tablespoon) and water (4 oz). Use this mixture to rinse daily, four a couple of weeks and enjoy the effect.
