The magic of baking soda

What is baking soda? – Sodium bicarbonate is a salt present in all bodily fluids and organs. It is found in the saliva, it is secreted by our stomachs, and it is necessary for digestion.

Aluminium-free baking soda is perfectly safe to use to clean teeth, and it can even be taken as a supplement to maintain pH levels.

Benefit for your teeth:

  • Neutralizes bacteria acidity
  • Decreases dental plaque
  • Prevents dental caries
  • Increases calcium
  • Neutralizes the effect of harmful metabolic acids

Is it baking soda abrasive for my teeth?

It has an intrinsic low-abrasive nature and is significantly less abrasive than cleaning agents such as chalk and silica that are found in most commercial toothpaste -all that glitters is not gold, reading labels is important!👌

How can I use baking soda in my dental routine?

  • As a toothpaste.
  • After flossing, mix equal parts baking soda and water in a small bowl until you’ve created a paste. Brush your teeth with the baking soda paste for 2-3 minutes and then thoroughly rinse with water.

Aside note: Regina, my grandma, was the first and the last human being on earth that I ever saw using baking soda outside the kitchen. When staying at hers for holidays, she would use the bathroom facing my bed, and I would see her calmly brushing her teeth with it.
