It is important to brush, floss, and rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash to prevent tartar build-up, but there are times when all of this don’t work, and tartar continues to accumulate on your teeth. This results to certain infections and bad breath.
Plaque can be bad news for teeth. Every time you eat, the bacteria create acids that can damage tooth enamel and lead to cavities. The acids can also lead to inflamed or infected gums. But, if you remove plaque regularly, you can prevent permanent tooth decay. So what are some easy ways to prevent tartar build-up?
First off is the use of coconut oil. Gargling with one tablespoon of coconut oil for a few minutes before brushing your teeth normally helps in the complete removal of tartar and plaque.
Another trick in cleaning your mouth, teeth, and gums, is using baking powder with strawberries. Crush a few strawberries and mix it with baking soda. Apply the paste on your teeth and leave it on for a while before rinsing it off. Brush regularly after the paste is all washed off.
