How To Get Rid Of Plaque And Whiten Your Teeth Without Expensive Treatments

The colorless, sticky layer of bacteria which builds up on your teeth, is also known as plaque. If you don’t treat it properly it can continue to accumulate and develop into tartar.

Therefore it can lead to gingivitis or inflammation of the gum tissue.Fortunately, there are numerous effective remedies which can prevent these problems in a completely natural and safe way. Coconut oil is one of the greatest products you will ever use. It prevents the development of dental problems, and give you that gorgeous Hollywood smile. Another powerful ingredient for whitening your teeth and eliminating plaque is baking soda. It is able to reduce the number of bad bacteria since it neutralizes the acids in the oral cavity.

The Journal of Clinical Dentistry released the results of a 2008 study based on 5 clinical studies. It was shown that baking soda is more efficient than commercial products when it comes to eliminating plaque buildups. However, keep in mind that using it excessively might harm your enamel, so it is best to use it in moderate amounts.

This natural paste recipe will prevent plaque formation:
2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
2 teaspoons baking soda (aluminum free)
A few drops of essential oil (peppermint is a nice option)

Stir the ingredients until well combined. Brush your teeth with your homemade paste twice a day.

The following natural recipes are also highly effective in removing plaque if used once or twice a week:
1. Combine a teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons of baking soda, and gently brush the teeth with the paste.
2. Combine a teaspoon of baking soda with some hydrogen peroxide to make a paste, and brush the teeth and gums. Then, spit it out and rinse the mouth well.
3. You can simply put a bit of baking soda on the wet toothbrush, and brush the teeth. Then, rinse the mouth with lukewarm water.

Try oil pulling
Experience has shown that when it comes to teeth whitening, coconut oil is the most effective natural ingredient for the cause, especially if you use it in a process known as oral pulling.

Oil pulling is an age-old remedy rooted in Ayurvedic medicine that uses natural substances to clean and detoxify teeth and gums. It involves swishing approximately 1 teaspoon of oil in your mouth for about 20 minutes and then spitting it out. This is very effective way of cleansing the body from toxins and improving oral and overall health. It is especially beneficial for detoxifying the teeth and gums and whitening of your teeth at the same time.

Oil pulling works by cleaning (detoxifying) the oral cavity in a similar way that soap cleans dirty dishes. It literally sucks the dirt (toxins) out of your mouth and creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment that contributes to the proper flow of dental liquid that is needed to prevent cavities and disease. According to a study published in the Nigerian Journal of Medicine in April 2015, which observed 60 subjects between the ages 16 and 18 who used oil pulling as part of their oral hygiene over a period of one month. The levels of plaque and gum diseases had significantly lowered after 7 days of oil pulling.

This is how to conduct this method:
First, buy some high-quality coconut oil. Swish a teaspoon of the oil for 20 minutes, which is enough time for the oil to be absorbed by the gums and kill bacteria and plaque, but insufficient for the body to reabsorb the toxins again. Don’t gargle, just swish. Spit out the oil – DO NOT swallow it. Rinse with lukewarm water, and brush your teeth. Repeat this on a daily basis, and in just a few days, you will start noticing that your teeth gradually whiten. In the end, brush your teeth as usual, to remove all bacteria left.
