Dental problems, such as toothache, bad breath and spotty teeth can be such a hassle. It is always best to visit your dental clinic for the best results. But there are also easy ways to cure some of these problems in the comforts of your home. Here are some solutions for your common tooth dilemmas when you can’t see your dentist just yet.
Teeth whitening. There are many ways to whiten your teeth and we are sharing two natural ways of doing it. One is coconut oil pulling. It is pretty simple: have a spoonful of coconut oil, swish it around your mouth for almost 20 minutes and then you are done. Another way is by rubbing the teeth with a banana peel. Apparently, the inner side of the banana peel contains potassium and magnesium, which help whitens the teeth.
Bad breath. One of the easiest and simplest ways of getting rid of bad breath is gargling with salt water. You just put two tablespoons of salt into a warm glass of water, let it rest for a bit and then use the water for gargling. Salt will help eliminate the bacteria that have accumulated inside your mouth. Another common household ingredient that effectively eliminates bacteria is cinnamon. For this, you will have to boil a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and use the strained water as a mouthwash. Cinnamon contains some elements that actually disinfects and refreshes the mouth.
Toothache. If you are having toothache and you want to treat it without the aid of a painkiller, you can use a salt and pepper combination as an anti-inflammatory agent. Simply mix equal amounts of salt and pepper with warm water. When the mixture is thick enough just put some of it on the aching tooth. You can also add garlic into the mixture to make it more effective. Garlic also works an anti-biotic so it will help soothe and heal the affected tooth.
Toothache is also usually a symptom of a much bigger problem so it is best to visit your dentist.
Bleeding gums. One way to treat effectively this dental problem is to drink milk. Of course milk contains calcium, which is beneficial to bone and teeth development. Another is to rub the gums with clove oil.
Ultimately though, no matter how effective these natural remedies are, still it is advisable to see the dentist for the proper treatment.
