Easily Remove Tartar Buildup On Your Teeth Without Going To The Dentist

Last updated on

Have you ever missed a day or two of brushing your teeth, and afterwards notice a hard, yellow substance lining your them? This substance appears due to an immense build up of plaque and is known as tartar.

With time, the amount of tartar on your teeth will increase if you don’t take care of it. This can cause a variety of dental conditions such as gingivitis, and in extreme cases periodontitis.

Of course, the best way to remove tartar is paying a visit to your dentist, but there is a way to remove tartar at home.

To remove tartar buildup, you will need:

  • Baking soda
  • Toothbrush
  • Coconut oil
  • Seasalt
  • Water
  • Cup
  • Dental pick
  • Oil-pulling

Baking soda is one of the most popular and effective tools for removing plaque.

Coconut oil is commonly used in oil pulling for teeth health and to get rid of bacteria, plaque and help treat gingivitis and periodontitis.

Step 1:
First, mix one tablespoon of baking soda with ½ teaspoon of seasalt into the cup. After you wet the toothbrush with warm water, dip it into the mixture. Scrub teeth with it and spit. Continue the same process gently, for five minutes.

Step 2:
Mix a tablespoon of coconut oil with ½ cup of warm water. Rinse your mouth for one minute, then spit and rinse out with cool water.

Step 3:

Rub the yellow tartar from your teeth with a dental pick. Be careful not to scrape the gums because it may irritate and damage them.

Step 4:
Practice oil-pulling every other day that will help keep your teeth white.

 

Here are some tips to help keep your beautiful smile:

Strawberries

The use of strawberries as a teeth whitener is an excellent healthy option without the harsh chemicals.

You can rub this fruit directly onto your teeth and let it sit for 5 minutes. This will cause the tartar build-up to soften.

Rinse your mouth with baking soda mixed with warm water afterwards.

Cheese

Eating Swiss or Cheddar cheese before meals helps neutralize the acids that involve plaque formation. An ingredient in aged cheese works as a barrier agent.

Some other things that you can do as part of your oral health routine:

  • Brush your teeth regularly with a soft brush and make vertical movements. Pay attention to the space between gums and teeth.
  • Floss regularly.
  • Consuming spicy food stimulates salivary glands that ensures you have the necessary amount of salivation occurring, which is important for teeth health.

  1. Thanks for sharing this! No one (to my knowledge) enjoys sporting tartar buildup when out and about, so it’s nice to see there are easy, safe methods for removing it. The added benefit of being able to repeat the coconut oil treatment daily is also a nice bonus.
