Use a tongue scraper in the morning and at night. You may not like doing this since some bacteria are needed by your mouth. Did you know that there are good bacteria and bad bacteria? Still, that gross slimy stuff on your tongue in the morning is plaque. Unless you get rid of this plaque on your tongue, it’ll just get brushed by your tongue to your teeth while you talk. The best tool for the job is a tongue scraper. And when you scrape your tongue every day, your breath won’t smell bad. Tongue scrapers aren’t expensive; you can find them in any store that sells toothbrushes or toothpaste for relatively small costs. Eat foods that are highly nutritious. Your body has specific requirements as to which vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it should get and how much. By being healthy on the inside, you’re also being healthy on the outside. This means your teeth become healthy too. While you need to eat more foods that have a high calcium content, you shouldn’t forget to eat foods that have the other important nutrients your body needs. If you follow the national guidelines for nutrition and portion sizes, your teeth will be so much healthier.
If you start to experience tooth pain, dip a cotton swab in clove oil and apply it to the painful area. Clove oil is a natural anti-bacterial agent. Clove oil applied to the tooth that’s in pain will kill the bacteria as well as put a stop to the pain.. Many older dentists still use this approach when they want to help patients prevent procedures like root canals or painful fillings. If clove oil is not available, you can try another tooth pain remedy: make a paste out of cayenne pepper and ginger and apply to the affected tooth.
