Our oral health is extremely important for our overall health and we need to take good care of our teeth and oral cavity if we want to stay healthy. Everything we ingest comes through the mouth, all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals have to go through it before they reach our digestive system. But so do bacteria and they often stay in the oral cavity, multiplying and leading to tartar and cavities, which is a problem many people face.

In today’s article we’ll share with you one natural remedy that will help you get rid of tartar and gingivitis, clean out the bacteria from your oral cavity and whiten your teeth as well. You only need a few ingredients and 5 minutes a day to perform this routine, but the results will be amazing.

Anti-Tartar Remedy

You’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp. baking soda
  • ½ cup hydrogen peroxide
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Antiseptic mouthwash
  • Warm water
  • Toothbrush

Preparation and use:

Combine the baking soda and the salt in a small container. Dip your toothbrush in the warm water and then in the mixture. Rub your teeth with the mixture gently for a couple of seconds and spit out the remaining mixture. Perform this for 5 minutes. Then combine the hydrogen peroxide with some warm water and rinse your mouth with this solution, gargling for about a minute before you spit it put. Rinse your mouth again with cold water.

Using a dental floss rub the tartar buildup gently off your teeth, making sure you don’t irritate your gums.

Finally rinse your mouth once more with antiseptic mouthwash and you’re done. Perform this procedure every night before going to bed and in less than a month your teeth will be tartar-free and pearly white.
