If you pass your tongue at the base of your teeth and you notice a hard yellowish layer, it is tartar and can contaminate your mouth with bacteria. It is therefore important that you know how to remove tartar so that you can put it into practice as soon as possible. Take note!
#1 Sodium Bicarbonate
Pour a little baking soda into a small bowl, moisten the toothbrush, put a little baking soda into it and brush. You can also add a pinch of salt to boost the cleaning power.
Prepare a mouthwash of baking soda to soften the tartar on your teeth.
½ cup baking soda
1 cup water
10 drops lemon essential oil
4 tablespoons vegetable glycerin
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
Mix all ingredients and store in a jar for use once or twice a day.
#2 Strawberries and tomatoes
Rub the fruit directly onto the tartar and let it act for 5 minutes. Then continue with rinsing the baking soda with warm water to remove all the plaque from the mouth and leave the teeth clean. You can use other foods rich in vitamin C such as peppers, lemons, oranges or papaya.
Tips for preventing tartar
- Brush your teeth regularly by making vertical movements between your teeth and gums.
- Floss regularly to remove any food particles and bacteria between your teeth.
- Eat spicy food because it stimulates the production of saliva that cleanses the mouth naturally.
- Take an orange peel and rub on your teeth before going to bed. Leave overnight without rinsing. This will help fight bacteria.
- Avoid smoking. Tobacco contains tar that adheres to the teeth leading to the formation of plaque removal.
Now you can have a bright smile!
