While tartare is a delicious dish, teeth tartar is something we dread. It’s a worse form of plaque and it occurs when you forget the golden rule of 3: brush, floss, and rinse. When you don’t remove tartar from your teeth, it becomes rough and can lead to gum disease. Not to mention that it’s pretty unpleasant to look at when you open your mouth.
We at Just Kooki are on bad teeth, bad breath and poor oral care patrol. Here are 10 ways to get rid of tartar and shine bright like a diamond. Cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
1. Baking soda and salt
Start with this simple yet effective method of tartar removal. Baking soda is a powerful agent that has an antibacterial effect and aids in teeth whitening too.
Mix 1 tbsp of baking soda with a pinch of salt and put some of this mixture on your toothbrush. Alternatively, add it to your regular toothpaste. Don’t brush your teeth with baking soda more than once a week as it can lead to enamel damage. Cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
2. Orange peel
Ever wondered what to do with orange peel leftovers? Now you know. Citrus fruits are generally good at removing plaque stains because they contain acids.
You can directly rub the peel over your teeth for 2-3 minutes or make a paste and apply it to your teeth. Whichever you choose, rinse your mouth with lukewarm water afterward. Repeat several times a week. Cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
3. Lemon juice
Interchange orange peel with lemon juice for better results. Lemon acids not only dissolve plaque but also whiten the teeth slightly.
Dip your toothbrush in fresh lemon juice and gently rub it over the teeth. Leave it on for a minute before rinsing. Remember that lemon juice is a very strong agent and can cause tooth erosion, so use it carefully.
