Baking Soda On Your Toothpaste?

One old dental tip that may seem hard to believe is adding baking soda when brushing your teeth. Even a current search of the Internet will yield search results that say baking soda is too abrasive to use on teeth. This is completely wrong and is easy to prove. Put a bit of baking soda into water and see how fast it dissolves! In fact, the abrasives in most toothpastes are far more damaging because they don't dissolve in water -- they stay abrasive as you brush.

One of the lesser known affects of the baking soda is that it will alkalinize the teeth and gums and drive minerals back into the tooth, thus reversing the demineralization that occurs from the early stages of tooth decay. We recommend adding daily flossing to this routine to break up the plaque that forms in between the teeth.

There are many great toothpastes on the market that contain all natural ingredients which can be "Turbo Charged" by simply putting one of these toothpastes on your toothbrush and then dipping it in baking soda.
