Finding a buildup of tartar or plaque on your teeth may feel overwhelming, especially when brushing fails to take care of the problem completely. Changing and improving your dental habits, as well as adding additional solutions to your daily routine, will help to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth over time with enough commitment and dedication.
Things You'll Need
- Baking soda
Floss every day at least once. Flossing helps rid your teeth of bacteria, germs and food that cause plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth over time.
Use an oral cleanser and mouthwash daily after brushing and flossing your teeth to help remove tartar and prevent new plaque from forming.
Mix salt and baking soda to use as toothpaste if you have heavy tartar and plaque buildup. This combination helps to dissolve bacteria quicker than traditional toothpaste.
Use various sources of Vitamin C to help eliminate tartar from your teeth. Rub strawberries, oranges, even tomatoes over your teeth for 5 minutes.
Rub and place orange peels over your teeth overnight to fight microorganisms and help remove plaque and tartar buildup in your mouth.
