Dental hygiene should be a priority in your life. You need your teeth in good condition, because without them, the whole mechanical side of digestion begins to be affected (and that’s not a good thing).
In extreme cases, it can cause tooth decay and even gingivitis. It is therefore useful to know a quick tip to prevent the build-up of tartar on your teeth.
Here is the solution.
First, to make your toothpaste paste, mix a tablespoon of baking soda and half a teaspoon of salt.
Moisten your toothbrush, apply some of the mixture on the brush, then brush your teeth for about 5 minutes before expelling anything that is in the mouth in the sink.
Then mix one cup of hydrogen peroxide and half a cup of water.
Gargle this solution for about a minute, then rinse the mouth with water or mouthwash.
Once done, take the dental tool and scrape the yellow tart that has accumulated.
Be careful not to damage your gums when you scratch around your teeth.
The use of hydrogen peroxide (hydrogen peroxide) in combination with bicarbonate , even if it is actually very effective for whitening teeth, must remain occasional because it is a powerful oxidizer that can damage the gums in the long run .
Using bicarbonate on your teeth
And (it’s probably worth mentioning), bicarbonate does not attack gums anymore than teeth. It is even recommended to fight against gingivitis because it has a descaling and bacteriostatic action on the deposits of tartar formation between the base of the teeth and the gum.
So, even if it is still true that bicarbonate is not a medicine, that the opinion of your dentist remains decisive , that we can recommend one or two uses a week as a precautionary principle, oral hygiene can be given to bicarbonate without taking any risk, be it whitening, cleaning the mouth and freshening the breath, or fighting canker sores.
And, despite a scientific and technical experience of baking more than 10 years, I personally have never seen evidence of premature wear of enamel, hypersensitivity or attack of the gums due to bicarbonate … so talk to your dentist! If he knows the bicarbonate well, he will confirm it.
