Turmeric really is a fabulous natural ingredient for oral hygiene. Due to its antimicrobial properties, it does wonders not only when it’s used in teeth whitening treatments, but also in preventing and treating gums or dental cavities.
There are different ways you can use a turmeric powder and below you can find 3 such simple treatments:
- Mix turmeric powder with water until you obtain a paste. Soak a toothbrush in the turmeric toothpaste and brush your teeth normally for 1-2 minutes. It is better to have a dedicated toothbrush for this treatment as the turmeric will yellow it.
Or you can use your finger and rub the turmeric paste directly on your teeth.
- You can add little turmeric paste to your regular toothpaste and brush your teeth with this mixture.
- You can also use turmeric powder as mouthwash: add ½ teaspoon turmeric to half glass of water and rinse your mouth with it.
The results will be seen in time. So do not expect overnight results. You need to be consistent, but it’s worth it
