4. Stainless Pearly Whites
Salt has excellent teeth whitening benefits, and if you want to eliminate hard and tough stains, such as cigarette stains, and give your teeth an instantly brightened look, you need to mix it up with baking soda.
Salt and baking soda are both mild abrasives, and salt is a dense natural source of fluoride, which also works wonders at healing and fortifying the teeth and gums.
You simply have to mix up two teaspoons of baking power with one teaspoon of salt to create a smooth paste. Now, you begin by wetting your toothbrush, dipping it in the mixture and then brushing your teeth as you usually do.
If you don’t like the taste, at all, just add some of your toothpaste to the mixture and brush away!
5. Bacteria-Fighting Mouth Wash
Do you remember your mother making you gargle with warm salt water every time you had a sore throat as a kid? Well, science reveals that salt has natural disinfectant properties, which allow it to vigilantly kill off bacteria and the accumulation of plaque, which normally builds up between our teeth. A salt mouth rinse is just what you need to create a strong prevention regime against gingivitis, and eliminate bad breathe.
All you need is half a teaspoon of salt, mixed with half-teaspoon of baking soda and a quarter-cup serving of hot water. Allow the salt and baking soda to dissolve into the water, and then, mix the solution before swishing it all around your mouth and teeth for at least two minutes before you spit it out and rinse.
