Remove Plaque and Tartar from Teeth at Home


Baking soda, also called sodium bicarbonate, is a great home remedy for removing plaque. It neutralizes acids in the mouth, thereby reducing the number of harmful bacteria. It also helps whiten and brighten your pearly whites.

A 2008 study published in The Journal of Clinical Dentistry analyzed five clinical studies and concluded that baking soda paste or powder can more efficiently remove plaque than non-baking soda products.
  • Put a small amount of baking soda on the bristles of your wet toothbrush and brush your teeth with it. Rinse your mouth and teeth thoroughly with lukewarm water.
  • Alternatively, mix 1 teaspoon of salt with 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Dip a dampened toothbrush in the mixture. Brush your teeth with this powder gently.
  • Another option is to mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with enough hydrogen peroxide to make a paste. 
  • Use it to brush your teeth and gums, spit it out and rinse your mouth thoroughly
Note: Do not use baking soda in excess as it may damage the tooth enamel over time. NEXT PAGE:
