How to Remove Tartar From Your Teeth

If you’re interested in preventing the formation of plaque and tartar on your teeth, but aren’t keen on the idea of having your teeth scraped by a dentist or at the dentist’s office, check out this natural and painless method of removing tartar that uses common household items! This method only requires water, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, salt, and lemon juice to remove tartar from your teeth completely naturally at home. It’s fast, effective, and will leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean without the need to visit your after hours dentist! Let’s get started!


What Is the Best Way to Get Rid of Tartar

Once you’ve determined that tartar is present on your teeth, there are two ways for removing it. You can visit a painless dentist and have them remove it, or remove it yourself by using natural toothpaste. Be careful not to use too much force when scraping tartar from your teeth, as you could cause damage to your gums. Also, don’t try anything more extreme than scraping—going at your teeth with a pair of pliers will definitely not work. Instead, use soft bristled brushes and gentle scrapers that are made especially for cleaning tartar off of teeth.


Which Home Remedies are Effective

How to get rid of tartar before You Consider Going to a Painless Dentist, Consider Trying These Home Remedies: 1. Baking Soda and Salt Paste: Mix together one tablespoon each of baking soda and salt with half a teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide. Store in an empty toothpaste tube or another clean container that's not made from metal. Use your finger or a small brush to apply it on your teeth, making sure you get all tartar off! Rinse well after applying. If it hurts, you can add more hydrogen peroxide (but never mix them).


The Painless Dentist Approach

The good news is that many dentists and their hygienists can easily remove tartar, especially if you take an active role in your own oral care. If you’re used to having a painless dentist, there are certain things you can do at home or in between visits to keep plaque at bay and decrease your chances of developing cavities or tartar buildup. Many dentists recommend brushing twice a day with special toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth, flossing regularly, rinsing out your mouth after meals (this will also help prevent acid erosion), and visiting the dentist regularly. You should aim for a dental visit once every six months; shorter appointments may not be as effective at keeping down plaque formation as longer ones.


DIY Dentistry Options

If you’re hoping for a quick, affordable and simple method for tooth whitening, make your way to your kitchen. Using common baking soda, lemon juice and hydrogen peroxide, you can make a paste that’s effective at removing surface stains from teeth. The mixture is easy on sensitive teeth but isn’t powerful enough to remove deep-seated yellowing or stains. Try using it once a week in conjunction with your regular brushing routine. Remember not to overdo it or you may wear away tooth enamel or irritate gums. If these ingredients aren’t available or you want something a little more powerful, look into home remedies such as peroxide tablets (like Oxyfresh Mint Oral Rinse) and coconut oil mixed with baking soda.
