Taking care of our oral health should be a priority, as it affects our overall wellbeing.
Practicing good oral hygiene habits maintains the function and durability of the teeth, and poor oral hygiene habits, as well as unhealthy diets, are the main cause of cavities, tooth loss, and infected or inflamed gums.
Moreover, scientists have linked oral to general health in many ways. For instance, poor oral hygiene has been related to the increased link of heart diseases. Gum diseases in women elevate the risk of pre-term, low-birth-weight babies. Problems chewing can cause intestinal failure, irritable bowel syndrome, and various other digestive disorders, while mouth infections have been found to pose serious risks to other major organs in the body.
Bacteria might accumulate in the oral cavity as a result of poor dental hygiene, irregular visits to the dentist, and inadequate teeth brushing. This can, in turn, lead to plaque and tartar deposits, stained teeth, bad breath, and gingivitis.
Therefore, make sure you brush the teeth twice daily, use high-quality toothbrush and toothpaste, dental floss, and mouthwash.
Here is a natural method to eliminate tartar, prevent gingivitis, and whiten the teeth:
- 1/2 cup of Hydrogen Peroxide
- A tablespoon of Baking Soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of Salt
- Antiseptic Mouthwash
- 1/2 cup of Cold Water
- 1/2 cup of Warm Water
In a cup, mix the baking soda and the salt, soak your toothbrush in warm water, and then dip it in the mixture.
Brush the teeth gently for 5 minutes, and spit it out. Rinse the mouth with warm water, swish a bit of hydrogen peroxide, spit it out, and rinse again with cold water.
In the end, use dental floss to eliminate the accumulated plaque, and rinse once more with an antiseptic mouthwash. Repeat daily before bedtime, and you will experience incredible effects!
