Is Baking Soda a Benefit for Your Oral Hygiene Routine?Are you looking for a way to boost your oral health routine? Adding baking soda to your cleaning routine might be what you need. Baking soda offers many health benefits to your mouth and can improve your overall oral health.

Baking Soda Helps to Clean the Teeth

Baking soda is a great addition to toothpaste, as it helps to keep the teeth clean. A study in the Journal of Clinical Dentistry found that brushing the teeth with products containing baking soda was proven more effective than the use of non-baking soda products.

Baking Soda Whitens the Teeth

There are many things that can cause the teeth to stain. Certain foods and drinks can stain the teeth, as can smoking. Baking soda is an effective and inexpensive way to whiten them. Baking soda is abrasive and can remove some stains from the teeth. Simply dampen your toothbrush and put a small amount of baking soda into it. Brushing your teeth this way twice per day can lead to whiter teeth.

Baking Soda Can Reduce Bad Breath

Baking soda is alkaline, so use of it in your oral hygiene routine can help to neutralize halitosis-causing acids. When you brush with baking soda or make a mouth rinse out of it, you can rebalance the pH of your mouth, and this can prevent halitosis.

Baking Soda Helps to Prevent Gum Disease

An accumulation of plaque on the teeth can lead to gum disease, and some symptoms include swollen gums, bleeding, and infection. Baking soda can prevent this plaque formation and accumulation, and it will ultimately work to prevent gum disease.

While baking soda is a good addition to an oral health routine, it should never take the place of regular dental exams. Give us a call today to set up your next appointment so that we can monitor the health of your mouth.
