Use Baking Soda To Stay Orally Fit

04 March 2015, Dabur Dental Team

Baking soda has for many decades been used for tooth care. Baking soda can replace many harsh and toxic things to provide excellent results. In particular, baking soda can help you to maintain good oral health. This is because it works by balancing the levels of acid in the body. It is also recommended by India’s best toothpaste - Meswak, to tackle dental problems. Given below are some dental problems that baking soda can help solve.

Gum disease
Gum disease, if left untreated, can become very serious. You know that you are suffering from gum disease or gingivitis, if you notice sore, swollen, bleeding or infected gums and bad breath. Gum disease is caused by an accumulation of plaque on the teeth. Baking soda discourages the formation of plaque and helps to prevent gum disease. Brush your teeth once or twice a day with baking soda, or all it to your toothpaste.

Tooth whitening
When it comes in contact with water, baking soda releases free radicals that attack teeth stains and help remove discoloration caused from a variety of food sources and tobacco. In addition to a brighter smile, brushing with baking soda helps dislodge plaque built up on the teeth. To whiten your teeth and remove stains, dampen your toothbrush and dip into a small dish of baking soda. Remove any loose powder before brushing your teeth thoroughly. For best results, brush teeth twice a day with baking soda.

Mouth ulcers and sores
Mouth ulcers are a pain, literally! They make the mouth feel sore, irritated and can take ages to heal. Baking soda can help in soothing ulcers and sores. Mix two teaspoons of baking soda in a glass of water to make a soothing mouth rinse. Use it religiously to recover soon.

Bad Breath
Bad breath not only embarrasses the person who is suffering from it but also lowers his confidence levels. Many people stop socialising because of it. This happens when the left- over food in the mouth, which can form acid, stick to the teeth, tongue and mouth. Baking soda can rebalance the levels of acid and help to treat and prevent this dental problem. Just mix half a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water and rinse your mouth to beat bad breath.
