Removing plaque may seem like a complex procedure, but after reading this article you will see things in a completely different manner. What is even better, you can clean your teeth using one single ingredient, and we bet that you already have it in your home. If not, you will sure head to your local supermarket and buy it!
We are talking about plain, unrefined oil, or to be even more precise, it is coconut oil. Cleaning plaque requires swishing two tablespoons of coconut oil into your oral cavity for 5 minutes.
But, be careful, you should not swallow it, because it is full of bacteria, nor spit it in your sink, as it may clog the drains. After you finish swishing coconut oil, spit it in the trash can. This technique may not be the most pleasant thing to do, but it is sure worth every minute you spend doing it.
This simple technique helps in treating gingivitis, eczema, acne and other ailments, and it also aids in eliminating bad breath.
Coconut oil pulls bacteria out of the gums, and thus out of the body. Of course, there is no scientific evidence proving this theory, but scientists believe that coconut oil has the power to pull bacteria out of the oral cavity. A study has shown that coconut oil has the ability to remove bacteria and plaque buildups.
Flossing can also do the trick, and it has proven to be efficient in reducing the risk of cancer, as it removes bacteria from the mouth. Coconut oil has the same effect, but as we have already explained, it is a completely different technique.
