The secret of perfect teeth is proper tooth hygiene from an early age. Due to unhealthy eating and habits, teeth can suffer, both medically and aesthetically. Here’s what you can do to restore your teeth to their natural whiteness and how to keep them healthy!
Although it is advisable to take care of your teeth in the dentist’s office, there are a number of methods you can use periodically to whiten your teeth and clean them thoroughly. The main causes that lead to yellowing of the teeth are unhealthy habits, the accumulation of bacteria, incorrect brushing and diet.
Adrian Mina, a dentist, explains what we can do to take proper care of our teeth and maintain their health, according to truth.
Natural teeth whitening methods that you can use at any time
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables
“Eating raw fruits and vegetables with a high water content can help maintain healthy teeth. They help clean the teeth and gums of bacterial plaque. Chewing fresh fruits and vegetables at the end of a meal can increase saliva production. Saliva helps remove food particles left on the teeth and removes acids from the oral cavity.
Brush your teeth regularly
The first step is to brush our teeth every day, at least twice every two minutes, correctly. It is very important to brush our teeth as soon as possible after consuming any food and drink that could stain or turn yellow. However, be careful not to brush immediately after eating acidic foods and beverages. This can cause the acids to attack the enamel and lead to its erosion. Brushing with a toothpaste specially created for whitening is more effective for a white smile, which has been scientifically proven. These whitening toothpastes contain light abrasives that help remove surface stains, but gently.
Sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide
The use of a paste obtained from baking soda and hydrogen peroxide helps to eliminate the bacterial plaque and reduces the risk of stains. To do this, mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide. Rinse mouth thoroughly with water after brushing. You can also use the same ratio of ingredients to get mouthwash. Or you can try baking soda in combination with water.
You can use activated charcoal to remove stains from your teeth, but also from bacteria and toxins in your mouth. Open an activated charcoal capsule and place the contents on the toothbrush. Brush your teeth in light, circular motions for 2 minutes. Pay close attention to the gums, as the charcoal is abrasive. Then rinse well. If you have sensitive teeth, you can only lightly dab the charcoal on them. Leave it on for 2 minutes, then rinse well. Again, something recommended as rarely as possible and for very short periods of time “, recommends Adrian Mina, dentist, according to Adevărul.
