Word of Wisdom No. 5: Gargle with Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar helps in removing stains and also whitening the teeth, in addition to whitening the teeth it also helps in killing bacteria and also in making the gums stronger. This is ideal and should be done after eating or after brushing. Killing of the bacteria creates a fresh smell in the mouth and also reduces cases of mouth infection.

Importance of Gargling Apple Cider Vinegar

Some of the advantages of using this vinegar include. It gives one a fresh smile and one can smile comfortably with fearing that he or she might be producing a bad odor. On top of that the vinegar helps in killing the germs that may be either be stuck in between the teeth or which might be piled up in the tongue.

The effects of accumulation of food particles in the mouth is that they cause a buildup of disease causing organisms. Some of the diseases that may be caused by these organisms includes tooth decay and dental carries. The vinegar helps in washing food particles that would have otherwise piled up on the tongue. The tongue in most cases accounts for half of the bacteria that are found in the mouth However, it is worth noting that the apple cider vinegar do not fully clean the tongue since the tongue requires some scrapping to fully remove the layers of accumulated food particles.

Unlike the teeth, the tongue cannot be cleaned by gaggling, thus calling for immediate brushing of the teeth after any given meal. Using a  scrapper tends to work well for many people than using a  tooth brush, after washing the tongue one should gaggle some mouth wash to kill all the germs that may still be trapped in the tongue to avoid cases of mouth infection.
