What happens when you stop brushing your teeth for a day or two?  Well, you will start noticing yellow linings under your teeth as a result of a plaque build-up known as tartar.

If not treated, this  tartar will start to spread  and can trigger various dental problems like gingivitis or worse- periodontitis.

Although we will all agree that the most reasonable thing to do in this case is to see a dentist, there is a way to treat tartar in home conditions.


In order to do this in the comfort of your home you will need:

  • Toothbrush
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Water
  • Dental pick
  • Salt
  • Baking soda
  • Antiseptic mouth wash
  • Cup


As we all have heard, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide are commonly used tools to whiten teeth and remove plaque.

Let’s proceed with the steps.

First step:

In a cup, make a mixture of one tablespoon of baking soda and ½ teaspoon of salt. Then, wet the toothbrush with warm water and dip it in the mixture you just made. Brush your teeth and spit. Repeat this for five minutes.

Second step:

The next step is to mix a full cup of hydrogen peroxide along with ½ cup of warm water for a minute or two and then rinse with ½ cup of cool water.

Third step:

Now start to rub the tartar with a dental pick but be very gentle with your gums since you may cause irritation.

Fourth step:

The final step is to rinse your mouth with a mouth wash three times a week.

Below there are few advices in order to have an impeccable smile.

For an excellent oral health you can use strawberries. Just rub this fruit directly to your teeth and let it stay for five minutes. Later, rinse with a mixture of baking soda and warm water. Also, cheese (Cheddar or Swiss)  has proven to be a great ingredient against oral plaque.

In addition to this, let’s not forget to brush our teeth regularly, to floss and to eat spicy food since it is a great salivary gland stimulator.
