Words of Wisdom No.5 – Gargle with Apple Cider Vinegar
Nowadays, thousands of mouthwash brands are in the market. People who needed to gargle with anti-bacterial mouthwash can just buy over-the-counter or buy what’s prescribed to them. Gargling with mouthwash helps reduce the bacteria in your mouth especially if you’re not able to brush your teeth yet. Most travelers bring mouthwash in long flights to help them keep their mouth healthy despite the limitations of their situations. Staying in a friend’s house also requires a mouthwash to keep your breath fresh and your mouth healthy.
However, there’s actually a good substitute for commercial mouthwashes sold in the market. This replacement can be found in anyone else’s kitchen hence if you don’t have a mouthwash or if you forgot it, then you still have an alternative in order to make sure your teeth are protected. All you need to do is to gargle with apple cider vinegar in order to kill bacteria. Aside from reducing the bacteria in your mouth, you’re also doing your teeth a favor as vinegar removes stains. Hence, it can actually make your teeth whiter if you gargle with apple cider vinegar regularly.
Eating dark colored foods and drinking coffee or colas can stain your teeth. If you’re not in the position to be able to brush immediately or gargle with mouthwash, then using apple cider vinegar as your best option. If you’re experiencing other bite problems, then it’s time to contact the professionals in your area. King Orthodontics can help diagnose your case and lay down the appropriate treatment plan.
