Scrape the tongue –
The tongue itself contains many bacteria and plaque formation. It also freshens up the breath when you scrape your tongue. It is really important, unless you scrape your tongue bacteria will continue to grow there since it is the habitat of bacteria.
Eating apples and carrots:
An apple is regarded as the nature’s tooth brush. It has a stimulating effect on our gums and evokes saliva. The salvia balances the pH of the mouth while the acidity washes the food particles away. Carrots have shown the same results. In fact, if you intake raw carrots, then they have shown many anti bacterial and cleansing properties.
Baking soda –
Even though baking soda is alkaline in nature, washing teeth with baking soda removes all the plaques in your mouth. But make sure you do it only once a week. Moreover due to the alkaline effect of baking soda, the alkaline nature of baking soda can be countered and no more bacteria will survive in your mouth.
