Poor oral hygiene is one of the most unpleasant things a can have, and aside from its aesthetic and social obstructions, it will also lead to a build-up of plaque on your teeth, which can result in additional oral complications.
While plaque is usually removed with expensive dental treatments, it is worth noting that there is a natural method you can perform to remove the plaque around your teeth.
Down below are 4 natural methods do remove plaque from teeth:
- Lemon juice
Despite its acidic nature, lemon has amazing teeth-whitening properties which can remove tartar buildup from your teeth as well. However, make sure you use this method rarely as the acid in the fruit can damage your teeth enamel and cause all sorts of problems.
To remove the build-up, mix lemon juice and warm water in equal amounts and swish the solution in your mouth for around 5 minutes.
Strawberries are loaded with specific compounds which easily cleanse your teeth of the plaque. Also, they are less corrosive than lemon juice meaning that you can use them more often. Simply cut a strawberry in half and rub it on your teeth for 7 minutes on a daily basis.
- Parsley leaves
Simply chop up some parsley leaves and apply them on your teeth, letting them sit for 5 minutes before rinsing your mouth with lukewarm water. Repeat the procedure on daily basis until you notice that the plaque is gone.
Ingredients you will need:
- 2 tsp. of sparkling Water
- 2 tsp. of Baking Soda
- 1 tsp. of Toothpaste
- 1 tbsp. of Water
Start off by mixing all of the ingredients together in a bowl until you end up with a paste-like consistency. Once done, brush your teeth using the mixture for 4 minutes on a daily basis and repeat the procedure once a week.
