Removing plaque from teeth w/o going to Dentist

Post  hadrion on Thu Jan 27, 2011 5:41 pm

Hey guys,

You all have me terrified of going to the dentist. I'm not having any dental problems, but I am due for a cleaning and was wondering if there is anything I can do at home to remove the plaque that forms at my gumline along the bottom row of my front teeth. That's the only place I have visible plaque.

Any of you have a safe home remedy/method in addition to conventional brushing/flossing?

Perhaps Magnesium Oil as mouthwash for a few minutes a day? Any thoughts on this guys?

Thanks to info from CS I nowadays use Spry, it's a natural chewing gum with xylitol which has some nice oral properties!
You can also use straws when you drink stuff, so it won't touch your teeth.

I've done that in the past, it works to some extent, your mouth definitely feels a bit fresher along with the tingle...but the taste... oh the taste... yuck.

Baking soda is what i use everyday. Its slightly abrasive so just be gentle on your gums. Removes the plaque easily. I use a ultrasonic tooth brush as well. Ive also heard good things about IP6 and mannitol.

Baking soda, sure, it will also have a whitening effect, but use it with caution and do some reading on it as well.

Thanks the responses guys. I'll definitely give Baking Soda a try and read up on how to use it first. I have that Oral B Triumph but I don't think that is "sonic".

I'm not sure I can put mag oil in my mouth just yet, lol.

Some really great responses here.

I'll add that I find that a Xylitol with baking soda toothpaste works quite well.

Also, like Misirlou mentioned, Spry gum, works great for excellent oral health.

Going even a step further, a water pick with salt works great for killing any pathogens.

One caution about dentists, is that even a normal check-up involves fluoride cleanings and potentially bisphenol-A dental sealants

Don't have much plaque but I would try what silverin wrote on the other thread, with using activated carbon as a floss before going to sleep.
You could buy your own dentist tools on ebay Very Happy how hard can it be to scrape stuff of your teeth...

I'm currently in Afghanistan and have been smoking a cigar a day and drinking a lot of coffee. A few months ago, I noticed that my mouth was disgusting. I decided to try CS's advice about rinsing with salt water. I've been rinsing twice a day, before I brush my teeth, for the past two months. Once in the morning and once at night. I checked my mouth the other day and I am amazed at how well this works to remove plaque. I definitely reccomend this method.

I also agree, dentists only put poisons in my mouth, drill drill and fill then bill, that's all they do.

What's your secret for healthy teeth?

I've heard some people use the Thieves young Living Essential Oil for this, and general dental care. Thieves however does have lemon oil, which worries me, i dont want to put something acidic on my teeth. But, ive read a few testimonials on it being able to kill bacteria, clean teeth from plaque and even help re-enamel.

Has anyone here used Thieves ?
