Clean Teeth With No Toothbrush From Duchesne Orthodontist width=With all the summer vacations and camping trips, it’s likely someone in your family is going to forget his or her toothbrush.  Hopefully you’ll be close enough to a store that you can grab a new one.  But if not, here are some suggestions from your orthodontist in Duchesne, UT for cleaning your teeth without one:

1.  Swish with water.  This can at least get rid of the major particles hanging around.

2.  Use a napkin, paper towel, washcloth, or any coarse material you have at hand to scrub your teeth.

3.  If you don’t have a cloth to scrub them with, you can use what many cultures around the world still use today: a stick.  Break the stick in half and fray the end by gently chewing it, then carefully scrub the film off your teeth.

4.  Before toothpaste, people mixed baking soda with a bit of water and scrubbed their teeth with it.  You can use your finger or a cloth.  This can also help whiten teeth.

5.  Chew sugar-free gum.  It can be a great alternative to flossing in a pinch.

6.  Chew mint or parsley leaves.  They will give you that fresh-breath feeling.

7.  If you’re really brave, you can put the leftover charcoal from your fire to use.  Grind it up into a fine powder, rub it on your teeth and rinse.  It can actually remove stains from teeth and absorb bad odors.
