Is It Possible To Get Rid Of Dental Plaque Naturally?


Yes, it is possible to get rid of plaque naturally.

Plaque is a biofilm or layer of bacteria that sticks on the tooth surface within the oral cavity. If plaque is not removed by regular brushing, it can harden. Plaque contains bacteria, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Here are some natural remedies to remove plaque from teeth:

-Use a pinch of baking soda mixed with few drops of lemon juice or water. Apply this mixture on a toothbrush and brush your teeth for one minute and rinse thereafter. Do this once everyday.

-Try vinegar. Place your tooth brush in vinegar solution for 5-10 minutes. Brush your teeth. Rinse your teeth to make sure no vinegar stays on your tooth surface. Repeat this process once a week only.

-Rubbing with orange peel will be helpful in removing plaque as it contains natural solvent d-limonene that helps to remove plaque.

-Fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin c like tomatoes, lemons, berries, papaya, oranges help in removal of plaque. Rub these on your teeth for 5-10 minutes and rinse thereafter.

-Brush with salt as salt acts as an absorbent helps to soften the plaque.

-Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash once a day.

-Most importantly, visit your dentist for a professional cleaning of teeth.

-To ensure that once removed, the plaque does not start to form again, make sure you brush your teeth twice a day for 2-5 minutes.

-Use interdental aids like floss to clean the tooth surface where toothbrush does not reach.
