Has anyone tried brushing their teeth with baking soda ?If yes, what were the results ? Also, did you use baking soda only or you added baking soda to the toothpaste ?

My Grandmother used only baking soda her entire life and when she was forced to get dentures there was not a denture product as white as her teeth.

You put baking soda on your toothbrush by itself.
I have used it but when we started traveling quite a bit I went back to toothpaste.

Am I the only one that sees the irony in having these 2 statements in the same sentence? What good are white teeth when they are in the dentist's trash can?

[color=#000000][font=Arial] I haven’t tried, but my sister has. She mixed baking soda with water (equal parts) and made it into a paste and brushed with it. She brushed for a minute and then rinsed with water. There was a slight change in her teeth colour but it didn’t last very long. It doesn’t taste too good either. I don’t recommend using this for long as it may damage the enamel of your teeth. I have also read several blogs that has similar views. Moderator cut: no advertising

I've heard many people saying that baking soda can help whiten our teeth. Well, some may say that it is indeed true. There's no better way to assure that our teeth is healthy by visiting our dentists for consultations. They spent years studying dentistry for us to achieve a good dental health. Besides, using baking soda can be slightly abrasive to the teeth's enamel. The erosion of the enamel can make the teeth more sensitive and more vulnerable to dental cavities.

If the Dentist hadn't used dirty equipment when cleaning she would not have had to get dentures.
Next time try to think beyond
