Healthy teeth and gums not only give you a beautiful smile, but also indicate good oral health and hygiene that play a very important role in your life.
It is of vital importance to maintain proper oral hygiene regularly in order to prevent bacteria buildup and keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Plaque is a sticky, colorless film of bacteria that builds up on the teeth and along the gum line.
This is the major cause of tooth decay, gum inflammation and other teeth problems.
Tartar damages the teeth and gums, which can lead to severe diseases like gingivitis, impacts bone health by causing bone degeneration or even heart disease in severe cases.
Plaque and gum disease are common dental problems. If you want to save your time and money while avoiding painful sessions to the dentist, go for simple and natural preventative alternatives.
You will need
- 40 grams walnut shells
- 1 cup of water
- Boil the nutshells in a pot of water for 20 minutes.
- Leave it to cool, and then strain and soak your toothbrush in this liquid.
- Give your teeth a 5- minute-brush.
- Do this treatment 3 times a day and in 7-14 days the plaque will disappear.
Please NOTE this is more a preventative method and will not eliminate tartar as fast as your dentist will once you have a build-up.
