Plaque is the sticky film on your teeth, and it causes serious health problems. Plaque buildups turn into tartar, and you end up dealing with gingivitis or gum inflammation.
But, you can easily improve your condition and prevent the formation of plaque with the help of several natural remedies.
Coconut oil is one of the greatest products you will ever use. It prevents the development of dental problems, and give you that gorgeous Hollywood smile.
Baking soda is another powerful ingredient. It whitens teeth and eliminates plaque. Use it to eliminate dangerous bacteria, and neutralize the acids in your mouth.
The Journal of Clinical Dentistry released the results of a 2008 study based on 5 clinical studies. It was shown that baking soda is more efficient than commercial products when it comes to eliminating plaque buildups.
Keep in mind that regular use of this remedy causes severe damage to the tooth enamel, so try to use it less frequently.
