Words of Wisdom No.6 – Brush your teeth with baking soda once a week

In today’s society, moms are searching for a simple solution to whiten their teeth that they can easily squeeze into their daily routine. After a long day of taking care of the children, many women consume dark beverages such as wine, coffee, tea, or soda. Unfortunately, these drinks can result in stained teeth over a period of time. Brushing with baking soda has been shown to reduce the appearance of stains on teeth even for those who wear braces or invisalign.

Advantages of Baking Soda

  • Brushing the teeth with baking soda once a week can polish the teeth in order to promote a whiter and brighter appearance.
  • Using baking soda during an oral care routine can also combat bad breath.
  • Because brushing the teeth with baking soda is extremely affordable, the remedy is an alternative to modern and often expensive whitening systems.

Brushing with Only Baking Soda

  • First, wet the toothbrush and then place it in baking soda until a paste forms on the toothbrush.
  • Using light pressure, brush the teeth with normal speed for about two minutes.
  • Afterwards, remove any remaining baking soda by rising thoroughly with water.

Brushing with Baking Soda and Toothpaste

  • Apply a small amount of baking soda on the toothpaste after squeezing it on the toothbrush.
  • Next, brush the teeth with normal friction and speed.
  • Finally, rinse the mouth with water to remove residual toothpaste or baking soda.
