8 Effective Ways to Remove Dental Plaque Naturally
A perfect smile is considered to be one of the most attractive features a person can
have. Unfortunately, there are many things that
can harm your teeth, such as smoking, too much caffeine, and irregular dental care. These seemingly innocent daily habits can
actually cause problems such as the dental plaque. If your greatest dream is to see your dentist
as rarely as possible, this video is what you need! Bright Side has gathered a list of natural
and extremely simple ways to get rid of problems with teeth. Remember to give us a like if you are interested
in this topic! 8. Baking Soda
Baking soda can be used as a natural scrub, and you can often find it as an ingredient
of many remedies. Speaking about teeth plaque removal, baking
soda is perfectly fit for prying tough tartar off of your enamel. It’s a bit abrasive though, so don’t overdo! Also, sodium bicarbonate (a clever name for
simple baking soda) has an ability to neutralize acids that gather in your mouth. As a result, the amount of harmful bacteria
becomes significantly lower. By the way, in 2008, The Journal of Clinical
Dentistry published an article where it had analyzed 5 clinical studies. On their basis, it had concluded that products
that contained baking soda powder or baking soda paste removed plaque much more effectively
than those without the addition of sodium bicarbonate. Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with a pinch
of salt and simply dip your wet toothbrush into the mixture. After that brush your teeth as usual. Don’t forget to thoroughly rinse your mouth! One more way to make your teeth shine is to
add enough hydrogen peroxide to 1 teaspoon of baking soda to get a homogenous paste. Brush your gums and teeth with this paste
two times a week. 7. Aloe Vera and Glycerin
People have known about Aloe Vera health benefits for many years. However, its miraculous properties spread
to the area of oral care as well. In particular, you can use it as a very powerful
natural toothpaste. It will keep your teeth free from plaque as
this plant is antimicrobial. The cherry on the cake, in this case, is the
ability of aloe vera to fight bad breath. To prepare this toothpaste, you’ll need several
ingredients: • one cup of water
• half a cup of baking soda • one teaspoon of Aloe vera gel
• 4 teaspoons of vegetable glycerine • one teaspoon of lemon essential oil
Mix the water with half a cup of baking soda, then add a teaspoon of aloe vera gel. Put in the mixture 4 teaspoons of vegetable
glycerine and lemon essential oil. Stir it together and brush your teeth with
this concoction. After that, there’s nothing else to do but
watch your teeth become whiter, shinier, and healthier within minutes! Try to use this toothpaste two times every
day. 6. Orange peel
After you eat an orange, don’t throw away the peel! Rub it onto your teeth — it’s an easy way
to clean your teeth enamel. Don’t worry, your teeth won’t turn orange! In fact, this process will whiten them. What is more, it will help to prevent stains
and fight off microorganisms and bacteria on the enamel. After you’re done rubbing for a few minutes,
simply rinse it off with some water. You can even leave it on the teeth for the
whole night and wash it away in the morning. Another way is to mash the orange peel (if
you are patient enough) and put it on the stained areas. Leave it for some time, then wash it away. 5. Sesame
Seeds Teeny-tiny sesame seeds can work as a pretty
cool dental scrub. They will remove the plaque and even tartar
gently and carefully, not damaging the teeth. Inspired? Then take a handful of sesame seeds, chew
on them for several minutes. Don’t swallow them even if you like the taste
a lot. Afterwards, use a dry toothbrush to brush
your teeth with the seeds still inside your mouth. This process will scour the teeth surface
delicately, removing existing stains but not causing any damage. When you feel that your teeth have become
shiny white, thoroughly rinse your mouth. 4. Vitamin Tooth Mask Mashing up fruits and veggies containing vitamin
C is a quick and easy way to create a plaque-preventing paste mask for your teeth. Simply mash together tomatoes, strawberries,
and oranges and put the paste on your teeth. Wait for 5-6 minutes and rinse. This will help to kill any bacteria in your
mouth and freshen up your breath. However, be careful with this treatment if
you have sensitive teeth. It can hurt. A lot. 3. Vinegar Solution
This is not the tastiest solution, but it is 100% natural and it cleanses your teeth
without causing any damage. One of the ingredients in white vinegar is
acetic acid. This acid prevents demineralization of the
tooth enamel and the plaque accumulation. It has some antibacterial properties as well. In 2014, The International Journal of Advanced
Health Sciences published a study which claimed that vinegar was much more effective for the
plaque dissolution than glycerin or distilled water. So, what you need to save your teeth from
the plaque: • 2 tablespoons of white vinegar
• one tablespoon of salt • 4 oz of water
Combine the ingredients, and use this mixture to rinse your mouth. Repeat it one or two times a day. 2. Cloves
People have been using ground cloves to relieve toothaches for many decades. But it has an ability to destroy microbes
in the mouth as well. Yes, exactly those microbes that cause the
plaque! In 2014, the Journal of Indian Society of
Periodontology published a study describing the benefits of the herbal mouth rinse which
contained clove and the oil of tea tree. It lowered the number of units that formed
the microbial colonies, therefore, serving as an anti-plaque agent. You will need:
• 1 teaspoon of powdered cloves • some olive oil
Prepare the mixture from the powdered cloves and the olive oil. Put it on your teeth and leave it for a couple
of minutes. After that, just rinse it off with cool water. Repeat this procedure two times a day. You can also regularly chew some cloves. It will keep your oral health at the proper
level and help to fight bad breath if the reason is the bacteria in the mouth. 1. Rosemary Essential Oil
This essential oil will act as a disinfectant getting rid of the bacteria in your mouth. It prevents cavities and the buildup of the
plaque and eliminates bad breath. Take several drops of the essential oil and
mix them with a tablespoon of water. Rinse your mouth with this liquid for 10 minutes,
then spit it out. Don’t swallow this mixture. Repeat the procedure two times a day. Additional Tips
• Eat more cheese. Cheese helps to produce alkaline saliva, and
it, in turn, creates a layer of protection around the teeth and neutralizes plaque acid. • Eat spicy food. It stimulates the salivary glands, and saliva
cleans the gums and the teeth. • Eat raw apples. Do it one hour after the meal. This fruit cleans the teeth and heals the
gums. • Eat figs. They stimulate the flow of
saliva and strengthen the teeth. • Try to avoid sugary things and starch. These things are a favorite playground for
oral bacteria. You may think: “Why would I waste my time
on getting rid of the plaque on my teeth? It doesn’t bother me.” But, in fact, it’s a must if you want your
teeth to be healthy. The thing is the process of plaque removal
will help you to prevent cavities that otherwise may damage your teeth. There are two things to worry about: plaque
and tartar. People often mix them believing that these
are the same things. However, the plaque is the bacteria that accumulate
on the teeth and produce lactic acid that demineralizes enamel. As for tartar, you can notice it on the outside
of your teeth. It has the form of white or yellow patches. They appear as a result of saliva, food, grime
and dirt gathering on the teeth. Tartar helps the plaque to settle in your
mouth. You see, tartar is a porous substance, and
this fact makes it a perfect home for the plaque which builds up around and inside the
pores. At first, caries appears, and if it isn’t
treated properly, you can lose a tooth. The problems with the plaque and tartar can
also lead to gum diseases such as chronic gingivitis. What is more, dentists nowadays know that
bad teeth care can lead to coronary disease and diabetes. That sounds threatening, doesn’t it? So, don’t let it slide, take a good care of

  1. She did say that too much Baking soda could erode your teeth, why people dont listen sometimes before blabbering their mouths! and whosoever say this will destroy your teeth, well normal toothpaste is doing a pretty good job of that on its own. You dont have to be excessive in doing these thing , twice to three times a week once a day , before going to bed,i believe will suffice.

  2. Does any kind of cheese get rid of the plaque acid? Also, I heard one has to wait at least half an hour before brushing one's teeth.

  3. All these ideas are great if you live in a country where Flouride is added to the water. Here in Europe, we don't have that, and it does make a difference. So am gonna try this, thanks.

  4. People with str8 teeth are robot clones, only trust moffos with overbites, gaps, and normally stained teethses !! This concludes my cort ordird PSA !!

  5. 💩💩👳💩💩💩💩✨✨✨✨🔎🔎🔎🤡🤡🤡💩💩🐩😡🤖😡🐇😈 😺😈😡👹👹👹👹👹👹👹👹👹🍅🍅🌳🌳🌻💐💐💮💐🌹🕷️🕷️🕷️🕸️🕸️🕷️🕸️🌹🍀🌲🌴🌼💮💮🌻🌳🌴🌻🐬I will have to go with you and me to send market

  6. 1. Baking Soda
    2. Aloe Vera and glycerin
    3. Orange peel
    4. Sesame seeds
    5. Vitamin tooth mask
    6. Vinegar, salt & water solution
    7. Cloves
    8. Rosemary Essential Oil

  7. I know someone who's dentist made her lots of filling. Her dentist died and she went to see another one and he made her realize that her teeth didn't need fillings. They were perfect. The first dentist did the fillings just for the money.

  8. As a dental hygenist I can say most of this is bad advice for those who are unaware. Firstly the thumbnail has a picture of tartar and it claims to remove plaque. Somewhat misleading. Plaque are soft deposits and debris that are easily removed with a toothbruth and toothpaste. On the other hand tartar, which is what the thumbnail shows, is calcified hard deposits which can't be removed without professional dental instruments. Take the reccomendations in this video with a grain of salt. Last thing you want to do is apply acidic liquids such as vinegar to the enamel of the teeth attempting to remove "plaque" . A great recipe for cavities down the line.

  9. These are actually really bad, potentially tooth destroying tops whereas removing plaque is really easy : get a good toothbrush and use it correctly and clean the interdental spaces with interdental brushes or toothpicks / soft picks for the spaces that are too small for interdental brushes

  10. Vinegar, Salt and water make hydrochloric acid. Its the acid which cleans your teeth. Vinegar by itself will yellow your teeth.

  11. Dont reccomend people eat more cheese (World Health Organization acknowledged Carcinogen and leads to heart disease) and then tell people it's because of their teeth!

    I know nobody here is likely to be on the vegan movement, maybe I'm, wrong. Its what's best for your body nevertheless

    Otherwise informative video. I think there should have been more info on the harm that some of these suggestions could cause. Such as applying acid to the teeth? Grinding coarse things against them? Just sounds like there info that would give the broader picture of what these things would do to your teeth in entirety

  12. I have always heard citrus acid eats away your teeth enamel and don’t dare breathe with vinegar. It will cut off your breath.

  13. Baking soda should NOT be used. It is abrasive, and wears away your enamel. Once that's gone, you'll need to get a replacement tooth surgically implanted, or dentures.

  14. Since I have access to diamond powder, I make my own dental paste by merely mixing diamond with toothpaste. Of course, you should use no bigger than 3um and polycrystalline is best, but metal or resin bond is OK. Just use a very light touch and let the diamond do the work. Scrubbing will destroy the enamel. However, to rid yourself of plaque, it's hard to beat. Also gets rid of stains. My preference is 1um poly mixed, 2 grams in 20 grams of toothpaste. Finally, only use it once every 3-5 days. It will be just like going to the dentist for a cleaning.

  15. HALF TEASPOON SALT
    ONE TEASPOON OF BICARCONATE OF SODA

    MIX… BRUSH TIL TEETH ARE SMOOTH… WORKS STRAIGHT AWAY!!!
    A DENTIST GAVE THIS TIP TO MY MOTHER – SAYING IF EVERYONE DID THIS DENTISTS WLD BE OUT OF BIZ….

  16. Stop drinking coffee and smoke, and just brush your teeth with your regular toothbrush and toothpaste twice a day, and floss once a day, and you´ll be fine.

  17. So baking soda, aloe vera, white vinegar, vegetable glycerin, rosemary oil, powdered cloves, water and salt makes the perfect toothpaste then?

  18. If you brush your teeth with toothpaste as often as these other methods your teeth will be white. Bottom line, just go brush your teeth.

  19. I have brushed my teeth with Listerine alone, or generic, for over 40 yrs. I have NEVER had to have my teeth cleaned or had a cavity. My check ups are perfect!!

  20. Just use a dental pick that you can pick up at cheap auto supply, hobby shop, or tool store and a small dental mirror. Clean the calcium off the back of your teeth once or twice a week using the stainless steel pick. Brushing 4Xs a day works very well too as brushing gets rid of the acids that causes tooth decay and gets rid of the acid that is the root of bad breath.

  21. Plaque is lose material. It can be brushed, flossed, or water-piked off.
    You are showing calculus (tartar,) being removed by various products, none of which remove the calculus.

  22. This video is for entertainment purpose only…. as general rule do not take health advice from Youtube… ask appropriate healthcare provider

  23. OR… just buy a decent toothpaste from your local store, a decent toothbrush, and use both for at least two minutes, three times a day. Over a period of time, the quantities of baking soda quoted in this video will quite literally, burn away the mucous membrane on the inside of your cheeks!
