For this easy to do trick, you need baking soda, a q-tip, and just a little bit of effort. Take the baking soda and add just enough water to create a paste. Then use your q-tip to buff the front of your teeth. You have to use a q-tip because a brush’s bristles are too flexible. What you have done is buffed off the bio-film that lives on the surface of your teeth. This film comes back in approximately 30 minutes, so it is very important to place your tray with the gel on immediately.

If the media reported there is no proof you needed to wash your hands would you believe it? Would you never pick up a bar of soap again? Of course not! Recently an article was published that flossing doesn’t have any benefit. As a dental professional, this is mind-blowing. There is no doubt that the mechanical removal of plaque is essential to healthy gums. Plaque is bacteria that builds up on the teeth daily. If not removed, it will cause inflammation and infection of the surrounding tissues. Brushing alone cannot remove all the plaque. Plaque builds up in between the teeth as well, and only dental floss can remove it.
If you have any doubt of the effectiveness of flossing, take a day or two off. When you floss again, inspect some bacteria that has built up that you can remove with floss. Better yet, smell it! Do you want to leave all that bacteria behind in your mouth?
