Dental care is essential but can sometimes be tricky to consistently maintain. Especially for those whose profession requires them to travel. Without the proper tools and techniques, keeping your teeth clean is a challenge. While we often think of toothpaste as the primary tool for dental hygiene, there are plenty of other methods you can use to keep your teeth clean and free from plaque and tartar. Here are some ways to clean your teeth without or in addition to traditional toothpaste.

1. Baking Soda and Water

Baking soda is an effective cleaning agent that can help remove plaque and bacteria buildup on the surfaces of your teeth. To use it, mix a teaspoon of baking soda and two teaspoons of water to make a paste. Gently brush your teeth with this paste for two minutes, then rinse your mouth out. Baking soda helps to neutralize acids in the mouth and can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

2. Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a antibacterial. Mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water, then use the solution to rinse your mouth out. Be sure to spit the solution out after rinsing and not swallow it. Hydrogen peroxide can help reduce bacteria and plaque in the mouth, as well as reduce bad breath.

3. Gels

Another option is to use a close alternative to toothpaste, such as Livfresh Dental Gel. It's doesn't contain harsh chemicals that can damage your teeth and gums. Livfresh Dental Gel is a better way to fight tartar and plaque than traditional toothpaste. Using the best product for plaque and tartar is important in the fight against gum disease. According to the National Library of Medicine, 47.2% of Americans older than 30 years old are dealing with some form of periodontal disease. That's why Livfresh Dental Gel is a must for those with plaque and tartar issues.

4. Salt Water

Salt is a mild antiseptic that helps reduce bacteria in the mouth. To use it, dissolve a teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water and use this solution to rinse your mouth out. Saltwater can help reduce bacteria in the mouth, as well as reduce inflammation in the gums.

These are just a few ways to keep your teeth clean without using toothpaste or in addition to your normal oral hygiene habits. With Livfresh Dental Gel and some simple techniques, you can effectively fight plaque and tartar. Give Livfresh Dental Gel a try today to clean your mouth fresh and clean.

5. Pre-pasted Disposable Mini Toothbrushes

This mini brush offers effective plaque removal as the soft bristles gently work along your gum line. No water or rinsing is necessary. Most of these mini brushes include a soft pick at the handle base to help remove food particles between teeth.
