4 Steps to Whiten Yellow Teeth and Remove Plaque and Tartar Buildup
Periodontitis is a human oral disease that affects the tissues surrounding the teeth and involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth. One of the main causes of this disease is tartar buildup on the teeth, which needs to be resolved sooner rather than later. Dental tartar are actually mineral deposits on the teeth that are usually removed at the dentist, but you should know that there’s a natural way that can easily get rid of it. Here’s what you need to do:
Mix ½ a teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon of baking soda in a cup, then dip the toothbrush in warm water and in the mixture next. Now, brush your teeth for about 5 minutes and spit out. Next, mix ½ a cup of warm water with a cup of hydrogen peroxide and swish a bit of it for a minute, spitting the mixture out in the end. Rinse your mouth with cold water afterwards, and then it’s time to pick off the tartar.
Use the dental pick to scrape off the yellowish buildup, but be careful around the gums. Finally, rinse with the antiseptic mouthwash and you’re done!
Tips for a beautiful smile
Regular brushing and flossing is vital if you want to have pearly white teeth. We suggest using a soft brush and paying special attention to the space between your teeth. If you’re suffering from bad breath, rub your teeth with orange peel every night before going to bed and don’t rinse with water. This will kill all bacteria in your mouth and eliminate the bad breath. Consuming spicy food will stimulate the excretion of saliva, which will clean your mouth naturally.
Foods for a beautiful smile
Strawberries and tomatoes
Both strawberries and tomatoes are rich in vitamin C which is great for your oral health. Rub your teeth with the fruit and leave the juices to work for 5 minutes in order to soften the tartar and make it easier for removal. Rinse with a mixture of warm water and baking soda in the end to neutralize any acids. You can do the same with any vitamin C-rich food such as papaya, berries, lemons, lime, orange or bell peppers.
Cheddar or Swiss cheese can neutralize the acids in your oral cavity, so make sure to eat a bit before your meals.
