Going to the dentist is a “must” when it comes to removing plaque. But, did you know that you can use many other natural methods and get rid of plaque at home.
Here are some of the most efficient plaque removing methods…
Method 1: Focus on The Brushing Technique
It is all about the quality, not the quantity. You may brush your teeth as much as you want, but if you do not do it properly it is just a waste of time. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommended the following method as the most efficient:
Hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle against your gum line. Point it upward, or toward your nose every time you clean the upper teeth; downward, or toward the chin when you are brushing the lower teeth. This angle also helps you clean the gum line, something that many people miss.
Method 2: Baking Soda
According to MotherNature.com, the good old baking soda can also help you remove the plaque from your teeth. Put some baking soda on your dampened toothbrush and scrub away the plaque. You can also combine a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of baking soda and use this mixture to brush your teeth.
Method 3: Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has also proven to be effective in removing plaque. All you have to do is soak your toothbrush in some vinegar and brush your teeth. Thoroughly rinse your oral cavity with water to prevent any damage to the tooth enamel.
