Plaque is a sticky, invisible film of bacteria that lives in the mouth and sticks to the teeth. When this slimy coating is left alone, it turns into chalky calcified substance called tartar, which is extremely difficult to remove.
There are a lot of factors that attribute to the building up of plaque in your mouth, like poor food choices, bad oral hygiene, wrong brushing technique, etc. Thankfully, there are some home remedies that can naturally help remove plaque and tartar.
1. Oil Pulling
Perhaps the age-old practice of swishing some oil in your mouth helps detox your teeth and remove plaque successfully. This home remedy is quite effective in keeping your oral health in check. You just need to swish 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin coconut oil in your mouth and keep it there for 10-15 minutes, preferably on an empty stomach. Be careful, as you don’t have to swallow it. Spit it to flush out all the toxins clogged into your teeth.
