This post is dedicated to all the people in this world who want to have pearly white and healthy teeth.
Our teeth are as important as any other part of our beauty like face. Won't you agree? But most of us are lazy enough to ignore this specific teeth part. consequence? - Dentist visit.
I personally hate it to go to dentist!
I wanted something natural and as usual cost effective.
So here I am giving you 2 sure shot ways to get white teeth.These 2 ways not only gives white teeth but also keeps the dentist away for the lifetime! Unless, of course, you don't want some specific services:)
1.) OIL PULLING:-
My favorite. Oil pulling method, suggested by Ayurveda, has been used in India since ancient days & these days, it is also recommended by doctors as healthy practice.
How to do it:-
Step 1) - Take anywhere from 1& 1/2 tsp to 3 tsp of any oil ( food quality oil) like vegetable oil, coconut oil, olive oil.
Step 2) - Keep swooshing it in mouth for sharp 20 minutes. Not less than 20 minutes not more than 20 minutes .
Step 3)- After 20 minutes just spit it out.
Step 4) - Rinse your mouth well with water for two or 3 times.
After that you can brush as usual.
Result:- visible just in a week.
a) This is to be done before you brush. I do it first thing as i wake up in the morning. You can do it in the night as well ( not directly after meal. take a gap of 1 hour).
b) Don't spit the oil right in the pipe as it has all the bacteria and germs which were stuck in your teeth gum etc.. Also, don't gulp it for the same reason.
swooshing is important. You can't just Keep it in your mouth.
This technique not only helps in whitening the teeth but also in many other problems like sleep disorders etc.
I say just give it a shot. It is your one step towards healthy habits.
2) NATURE THERAPY:-
This way again helps in keeping all teeth related problems plaque build up, tooth decay, cavity , tooth ache, sensitivity away.
Step 1:- take 1/2 tsp of mustard oil ( sarso ka tel).( Just the right amount to spread and massage on your teeth).
Step 2:- Add just a pinch of salt in it.
Step 3:- add just a small pinch of turmeric in it.
Step 4:- Mix all ingredients well. Then apply it on your teeth and with the help of index finger brush it for a minute. The procedure is same as with tooth paste and brush. Just that here you have a home made mixture instead of your tooth paste AND finger instead of your tooth brush.
Step 5. After a minute. spit the matter out. But don't rinse with water. keep your mouth closed for 3-5 minutes more. The real bacteria will come out in this period. After 5 minutes, spit all the saliva and residual matter out and rinse your mouth well with water.
Effect:- You may not notice white teeth immediately. This method takes some time. Give it a month.Also, even if effect is not prominent, keep using it.After all, it surely keeps the dentist away.
Note:- Turmeric in 2nd method can impart a yellowish color to your teeth. But it is temprory. It will fade. Don't quit using this method because of it.
It removes plaque , germs etc specifically from teeth and gums. For tongue, never forget to use a tongue cleaner.
Also, You may not like the taste of oil or keeping it for 20 minutes. But do it. As results are worth it!!
And remember I love hearing from you!!
