It can only be mechanically removed.

any acid strong enough will damage the enamel too.


go to a dentist and have them cleaned.

I think its important to consider the median income of the nation before just spitting to go to the dentist.

While they will pull a tooth for a "decent" price any sort of cleanings etc are not exactly for the poor.

In some countries many people have very white teeth because they often eat salads with wine vinegar.

The vinegar's mild acid actually helps keep the teeth clean.

And apples are also good because they have malic acid and that also does what the vinegar does for the teeth.

30% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE, this kills bacteria, keeps teeth white and eats tarter and scale off your teeth. My dentist has told me for several years that she is amazed how clean my teeth and gums are!You can buy 30% online and apply to your teeth with a ear swab. At first it will seem a bit strong but you will get use to it quickly. I really don't think I need the dentist anymore!

Re: HELP - I need to dissolve the tartar on my teeth!
Does anyone know of a way to do this? I mean, is there some liquid I can swish around my teeth that will dissolve the tartar but leave the teeth intact?

Problem is, no matter how often I floss/brush I always get painful tartar buildup within days of seeing the dentist.

There's got to be a way!

vinegar comes to mind, isnt there a toothpaste with vinegar?
Christians have had to face and realize their own sins, and feel compelled to try and help others as well.

This chant of Holier than thou is wrong and is taught by others making you think what is cool or acceptable to them.

The thought of "believe as i do" is strongly in an unbelievers life, because they feel they will be ridiculed by their friends.

Every falsehood a unbeliver weilds, is merely a reflection of the obstacles that unbeliever must face from his very own peers.

Unbelievers are the true followers, they are dedicated to fear of what other people think of them.

And because of this, they are ashamed of themselves, but wall themselves up to feel comfortable and safe, assuring themselves with rationality and laughter.

Which is insanity!

Re: HELP - I need to dissolve the tartar on my teeth!
A few options.

First, Periogen is a relatively new product that is purported to dissolve tartar.

I have not yet tried it, but I am thinking of dissolving some (it's a powder) in my waterpik for below-the-gumline delivery.

While you're at it, consider these additional tidbits.

An ultrasonic toothbrush like a Sonicare. It's very, very worth the price, You won't go back to normal brushing ever again. It feels very weird the first several times you use it -- it tickles -- but that feeling soon enough stops happening.

A Waterpik. Also grab some subgingival Pik Pocket® Tips for extra cleaning below the gumline. That's where tartar likes to hang out and cause receding gums and bone loss. Teeth are more vulnerable below the gumline because they are softer there.

I just got the cordless version for about $25 and it's awesome. Plus you can add various gum and tooth-healthy substances like baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, peppermint oil, spearmint oil, almond oil, etc.

Xylitol is awesome. It is a sugar that bacteria cannot metabolize. It is a fantastic way to protect your mouth, and it tastes just like sugar (but with less calories!) You can find it in various gums and mints, like Spry. You can also just buy it in bulk form and use it like sugar, adding it to water or whatever, especially after you eat or drink.

Swish with water after meals or snacks or sugary drinks. Cavities form in low PH (acidic) mouth environments. Water neutralizes that acidity. Bacteria acid attacks last about 20 minutes after eating or drinking. Tea is also alkaline and neutralizes acidity.

Teeth will naturally re-mineralize themselves given the proper mouth and body environment. That combats the de-mineralization caused by acid-forming bacteria. The trick is to remineralize faster than de-mineralize. That depends on the mouth ph (acidic bad, alkaline good), saliva production, minerals (ie calcium and phosphorus), etc. See [link to mizar5.com]

A great (and alcohol-free) mouthwash is Closys.

Vitamins and minerals for mouth and general health. That would be a long topic in itself. Raysahelian.com and mercola.com and the awesome LEF.org are great places to start health research.

I will specifically recommend, though, high doses of vitamin C and co-q-10 for gum and tissue health. Topical application of co-q-10 may be especially beneficial. But just swallow the C because its acidic. (Unless you neutralize it with baking soda first :-)

See [link to mizar5.com]

A great (and fluoride free) toothpaste is Dr. Collins Restore. It has Novamin, which is unique and rebuilds teeth by providing the raw materials they use to rebuild (remineralize) themselves. It also treats tooth sensitivity by blocking nanotubules.

I have also found the system used by Dr Ellie Phillips to be informative. She provides a ton of free information on her site. [link to www.zelliescleanwhiteteeth.com (secure)]

Though she does recommend fluoride toothpaste, and all the research I've conducted indicates that even if there is any benefit from fluoride, 1 mg a day is the optimal dose. More does nothing -- and is harmful in higher doses.

But even if that 1 mg fluoride is effective, it must be topically applied (like toothpaste) -- not swallowed. Any dentist that wants to sell you fluoride pills is either ripping you off or ignorant. Anyway, we currently get waaaay more than 1 mg a day. So much as to potentially be unhealthy. Each time you brush your teeth, the toothpaste delivers about 1 mg. Could be more depending how much you put on. A gram of toothpaste contains 1 mg of fluoride. Also, everything else you eat and drink contains some fluoride. Soda. Bread. Whatever. Black, green and white tea contain a lot because tea plants concentrate fluoride in their leaves. So if you want fluoride free tea, you need to get it from a naturally fluoride-free region. White tea is speculated to have less fluoride because it is picked at a younger age.

Anything over 3 mg per day of fluoride for women and 4 mg for men is too much. Infants should have ZERO. Nursery Water is dangerous. This isn't fear-mongering. This is mainstream science. Even the FDA advises babies should have zero fluoride, and warns against making formula with fluoridated water. The trick is figuring out how much fluoride you're ingesting. (Most likely it's too high).

You can consult this list for fluoride content for specific foods:
[link to www.fortcollinscwa.org]
and
[link to www.nal.usda.gov]

It can be a little confusing to read the list, as it lists fluoride content in micrograms, which is 0.001 milligrams. So 1000 mcg = 1 mg. So for a woman, 4000 mcg is too much, and for men, 4000 mcg is too much. Also, the foods listed assume a serving size of 100 grams, which is not much, about 3.5 oz. So you need to multiple up for how much you are actually eating.

Fluoridealert.com is a great resource.


There are other products targeted at gum health, like Dr. Katz Perio Therapy, Periactil, OraMD and Ultimate Gum Solution, which may be of benefit. I have not tried them personally. Some are pricey. But if you're on a budget, many of the ingredients are ones that you can mix up yourself, like hydrogen peroxide, Co-Q-10, oils of peppermint, spearmint, and almond. If you find a product that has a lot of evidence for its efficacy, you can look up the ingredients and make it yourself.

Long post. But hopefully it's helpful to someone. Healthy teeth and gums are important :-)

Seasalt, eh? That is a great idea! I know it will kill bacteria. But will it actually dissolve the tartar?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 52186


you could mix it with baking soda as well.

you may be very acid also. try getting more alkaline by eating more fruits and vegetables. and drink half your body weight in ounces of water.

you could try taking a 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in water morning and evening to help get you alkaline.

try something called Oil Pulling. You swish around sunflower oil in your mouth for a few minutes a day, better at twice a day and it is supposed to build healthier gums, really whiten your teeth, and give all around health benefits.

There was a thread on this subject a while back around here. I have always meant on starting but never have. Of course it is supposed to take a good amount of time to see results. Any natural process does

Hi. A safe natural way is fresh strawberries! hold the juice in your mouth for 5 minutes...spit out! Tasty!

Also, a dentist created plaque/tartar removal, naturally, with grapefruit extract, grape seed extract, peppermint oil, thyme oil, neem oil. All natural ingredients...originally meant for pets. Yet it is now made for people.
It is prepared and sold on the retail market under name of "Plaque Attack" or "Petzlife".

You can look it up on Youtube. I have yet to try it. Check it out. Watch the video.

Also swish xylitol in your mouth and you will kill all the bacteria
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 838240


Xylitol is a sweetener to make mouthwash/toothpaste nice to use. (Most people don't stick with bad tasting product, and don't "comply" with treatment. Noncompliance means the product can't benefit the patient, since it means they aren't committed to using the product.

Artificial sweeteners and sugar replacements don't remove tarter, they are an "inactive " ingredient.

Ok, Using straight hydrogen peroxide is caustic to your oral tissues, you MUST dilute it with water. It can cause pre cancerous lesions. Baking soda is a mild abrasive, so dont go crazy with it. Be careful with acidic rinses that can erode enamel. Best bet go to a good dental hygienist and get a proper cleaning and instruction.
