Can I brush my teeth with baking soda?Is it safe?
Can I brush my teeth only with baking soda w/o mixing it with peroxide?I'm asking because I know baking soda is abrasive.So is it safe or not?Do I have 2 put the baking soda on my toothpaste?

This is a very good question....I have heard people do it a lot, but I can't say if it's safe or not...I am interested to find out or not though.

you can use just baking soda, its ok but dont do it if you have sensitive teeth because its kinda rough.

Yes, it's safe. There's actually an Arm & Hammer toothpaste out. It's got baking soda right in it... not very tastey but awesome for the teeth and gums!

No, it's too abrasive. Even with the peroxide I'd not recommend doing it. You'll wear away your enamel and create tiny little grooves for bacteria to hide and stains to cling safe from your toothbrush. Go in for a good cleaning then it's all about maintenance. Especially with the right technique for brushing - angle the toothbrush towards your gumline 45 degrees (angle up for the top teeth and down for the bottom teeth) then use very short vibrating brush strokes ending with a sweeping motion away from the gums then moving to the next section of teeth. Literally brush only 2 teeth at a time. It takes some getting used to, but the pay off is healthier gums and a brighter smile.

(The Arm & Hammer toothpaste has very very fine particles in it and is relatively safe)

Yes you can use only baking soda. I just went to the dentist a month ago and I was inquiring about whitening my teeth. I was told to brush using baking soda and rinse with the health pro care. I've been doing it every since and I see results. If you like, you can put toothpaste on your brush first, then baking soda.

there is toothpaste available that already has baking soda in it this would be best. because the gritty baking soda will harm your enamel on your teeth. check your department store or drug store you should find the toothpaste.

Lucy Blue
Yes. It doesn't taste as good as toothpaste but it's safe and natural and just as effective. You can use diluted peroxide for mouthwash. Toothpaste and mouthwash can have harmful additives. Hope you are flossing, too.

do not brush w/pure baking soda. if it's mixed in w/normal toothpaste, you should be fine (think arm and hammer tooth paste)
