Mineral deposit on teeth is known as tartar. In time if you neglect your teeth it can cause periodontitis.
Plaque is a sticky, colorless film of bacteria that constantly forms on our teeth and along the gum line. Plaque contains bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. As plaque forms and is not removed by proper brushing and flossing, it can harden into tartar — sometimes called calculus — which is calcified (or hardened) plaque that attaches to the enamel on your teeth, as well as below the gum line.
The best way to remove this is to see your dentist more often, but you could help yourself by mixing these ingredients.
To do so, you will need:
- Baking soda
- Tooth brush
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Dental pick
- Antibacterial mouth wash
Baking soda is the most popular and reliable tool for removing plaque.
First, mix one tablespoon of baking soda with ½ teaspoon of salt into the cup. After you wet the tooth brush with warm water, dip it into the mixture. Scrub teeth with it and spit. Continue the same process for 5 minutes.
Mix a cup full with hydrogen peroxide with ½ cup of warm water and wash your mouth for one minute, then spit and rinse with ½ cup of cool water.
Rub the yellow tartar from teeth with an oral pick. Be careful not to scrape the gums due to the fact that it might aggravate and damage them.
Rinse mouth with an antibacterial mouth wash and repeat every second day.

Strawberries and Tomatoes
Fruit and Vegetables that are rich in vitamin C like berries, lemons, lime, oranges and papaya are great if you consume them they will better your oral health.
For example tomatoes and strawberries are excellent for removing tartar which is build up, just rub them onto your teeth and let it sit for 5 minutes. Afterwards just rinse your mouth with baking soda mixed with warm water later on.
To brighten teeth you can mash up a ripe strawberry and dip your toothbrush in it – but be sure to rinse thoroughly afterwards, using warm water to which a pinch of bicarbonate of soda has been added, to reduce acidity in the mouth.
Eating a Swiss or Cheddar cheese before meals helps neutralize the acids that involve plaque creation. An ingredient in aged cheese works as a barrier agent.
Another way you can protect your teeth (though not whiten) is to chew a small cube of cheese after a meal. Casein – a milk protein – and whey protein in cheese have been shown to reduce the loss of minerals from tooth enamel.
Moreover, there are other things that you can add into your oral health routine:
- Brush your teeth regularly with a soft brush and make vertical motions. Focus on the space between gums and teeth.
- Floss regularly.
- Consuming spicy food stimulates salivary glands. That way saliva cleans mouth in a natural method.
- Fight bacteria with an orange peel rub on teeth before going to sleep and do not rinse mouth.
Make sure you are:
- Brushing and flossing after meals, or at least twice per day.
- Eating a diet rich in vegetables
- Making an appointment for every three months if you have gum disease, or every six months if you don’t have gum disease and are just maintaining good health.
