How To Remove Tartar Build Up At Home

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.

Floss Regularly

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

  • Strawberries – Vitamin C rich
  • Tomatoes – Vitamin C rich
