Floss regularly – Another reason why the mouth becomes the breeding ground of bacteria that causes plaques is because food particles stay in the fine gap between the teeth. Flossing regularly will remove all food particles and will not allow bacteria to form.
Use baking soda – Sodium bicarbonate, better known as baking soda, is also very helpful in eliminating plaques. It neutralizes the oral acids and thus prevents further growth of harmful, plaque-forming bacteria. Apply some baking soda on your toothbrush and gently brush your teeth. Bacteria will be eliminated and your teeth will become white as well.
