This can give your mouth a variety of benefits. If you want a brighter and healthier smile, this may be the answer you have been looking for.
Baking Soda Brushes Off Many Surface StainsBy dipping your toothpaste into some baking soda before brushing, you can add a little extra abrasiveness into your brushing routine.
This can help remove extra surface stains from your teeth, giving you a whiter, brighter smile. Plus, it can also keep your teeth whiter even when you do consume foods and beverages that would normally stain your teeth.
Baking Soda Also Neutralizes Acidic pH in Your MouthThe bacteria in your mouth struggle to survive when the pH balance in your mouth is pointed towards base instead of acid. The foods you eat and the beverages you consume typically leave your mouth acidic. By adding a base into your routine, it can rid your mouth of the acid causing erosion, and decrease your chances of developing cavities.
Remember, you should only ever use baking soda when your dentist has said that it is safe for you to use. Stains from within your teeth won't be helped by using baking soda.
Those wearing traditional metal braces should avoid baking soda, as it can make the glue holding the brackets on a little bit softer. Contact our office today, and let them decide if these benefits would be helpful for your mouth!
