Home Remedies To Help Remove Tartar

What is tartar?

Tartar is the yellowish-brown calcified material on the surface of the teeth.

To remove tartar you will need a professional cleaning, but some of these home remedies can help prevent tartar from growing further.

  • Brush properly - Brush after each meal using a soft bristled toothbrush (perio brush). This type of brush penetrates further between the teeth to remove any derbies, reduces abrasions and helps stimulate the gums.
  • Use an orange peel - Take the orange peel and turn it into a paste and apply to the teeth, leave over night without rinsing. This helps fight of tartar forming microorganisms in the mouth.
  • Munch on fruits and Veggies - Gnawing on hard fruits and veggies (apples, carrots, celery and etc.) is a natural way to clean the teeth along with strengthening the gums.
  • Eat Figs - Eat 3 to 4 figs at a time slowly. This process will stimulate the salivary glands and increase the secretion of saliva.
Other home remedies include ones that we have already heard about such as use an electric toothbrush, floss regularly, use a fluoride toothpaste and so on.

Like I have mentioned above once tarter is formed the only way to remove it is by seeing your dentist for a cleaning.
