All people know the importance of maintaining oral hygiene for prevention of caries lesions and other damage to oral tissues. But despite all the effort of having a healthy oral cavity, the creation of hard dental plaque is noticed in many people.
This solid dental plaque is created by mineralization of the supragingival and subgingival dental plaque. Even though we practice good oral hygiene, we still have bacteria in the mouth. Bacteria along with proteins and products of food create sticky film (biofilm), called dental plaque, which represents adherent mass of bacterial deposits, which covers the surface of the tooth.
Plaque deposits not only look ugly but can cause serious problems.
If you fall into the category of people who shake with fear when visiting the dentist, then the following natural solution is ideal for you:
Take 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and place them in your mouths. Pass the coconut oil between the teeth as you do when washing your teeth, hold it in the mouth for about five minutes and then spit it out. You may feel little uncomfortable, but the effect is important.
This technique has been used in ayurvedic medicine for centuries.
This method can also be used to get rid of bad breath, treat gingivitis, eczema, acne and many other things.
The oil will extract bacteria and toxins through the pores of the gums in the mouth, and your body in general.
Many studies have confirmed that using coconut oil this way will reduce significant number of bacteria, teeth deposits and plaque.
