Tartar buildup is common among many adults and children. If left untreated,
this problem can lead to periodontitis or worse. Periodontitis is inflammation
or infection of the bone that supports your teeth, the alveolar bone.
Here are some ways you can prevent tartar build up at home!
Use Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen Peroxide has many cleaning, antibacterial properties. It rids
bacteria from the mouth and even has a bleaching agent for whiter teeth.
Flossing is a must. You should be flossing anyways as a part of your daily
oral hygiene routine, but if you aren’t it’s time to start!
Flossing removes leftover particles from the teeth and creases of the
gums to prevent infection.
Add To Your Diet
Some foods are rich in vitamins and minerals to help naturally clean the
mouth. These include:
- Strawberries – Vitamin C rich
- Tomatoes – Vitamin C rich
- Cheese – This neutralizes the acids in the mouth
