Dentists are usually the first people we go to when we have some kind of plaque buildup but should that always be the answer? While going to the dentist when you need to is fine and dandy if you are only dealing with a little plaque, you can get rid of it at home on your own if you know what you’re doing.
Don’t get me wrong, the natural way isn’t for everyone but if you have time and are willing to put in an effort you will see the results you want to see. There are a lot of different ways you can clean your teeth without using chemicals or dangerous methods. Now for those who do not know, plaque is a sticky deposit on our teeth that contains bacteria and well, feels gross.
Plaque can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease if you don’t pay attention to it and get rid of it as needed. As the bacteria in this plaque attacks our enamel it will begin to break down our teeth. If you do not remove this plaque daily you will end up with a mouth full of tartar which is much worse and can cause gum irritation along with other things.
The method I am going to go over below will help you to clean this plaque off of your teeth and should be done a few times a week depending on how much plaque buildup you are facing. I do this once a week just to make sure I have it all gone and it has made a huge difference in the way my smile actually looks. While this is the method I use the video at the end of this article will also have some other options as well.
5 Minute Plaque Removal Technique:
Aloe Vera Gel
Mix about a spoonful of coconut oil and aloe vera gel into about a half a cup of warm water. Add in a few pinches of salt and two spoonfuls of baking soda. The peppermint is optional but really does help with the taste so I would add it in last. Once you have done this mix everything together as best you can.
Using that extra toothbrush dip it right into this mixture and start brushing. Make sure you get each and every tooth and don’t brush too roughly. Pay attention and take your time with your mouth. Brush with this for about five minutes dipping back in as need be. Repeat weekly or a few times a week and go from there. This will really make a huge difference for you.
