Everyone knows that cleaning your teeth is important and that the basic necessities for doing so include toothpaste and a toothbrush. Every time you turn on the television, there are commercials for a new and expensive toothbrush, special toothpaste or tooth whitening system. These products are not only expensive, but many of them contain harsh chemicals. Instead of subjecting yourself to these chemicals, try making homemade products to clean, freshen and brighten your smile.

Baking Soda

Dentists agree that baking soda works well on teeth. Many toothpastes list baking soda among the ingredients. Baking soda by itself is a good tooth cleanser. You can also mix three parts baking soda to one part salt and store the mixture in an airtight container. You can add a tiny bit of flavored oil (such as peppermint) in order to improve the taste, but this is not necessary. The baking soda will kill germs, and the salt is abrasive and will scrub plaque off
your teeth.

Bruth Your Teeth

Brush your teeth immediately after eating or drinking foods that stain teeth.

Shower Your Mouth

Open your mouth and let warm water stream into your mouth and over your teeth. Doing so will allow you to treat your shower like a temporary water pick system and it will help to rinse out your mouth as well as flush away plaque.

 Sugar Free Gum

Chewing on some sugar free gum is a wonderful way to clean your teeth while you are at home or on the go. As you chew the gum you will be removing bacteria and plaque accumulation on your teeth and you will also be freshening your breath at the same time.

Mouth Wash

Do a really good and thorough rinse with some mouth wash immediately after eating. Use mouthwash that does not contain alcohol; this way you are treating your gums and tissues with considerable, gentle care.
