Why Is Baking Soda Good For Teeth?

  • Gently cleans teeth by getting into all the hard to reach places.
  • Whitens teeth naturally by gently polishing away surface stains.
  • Freshens breath so you can feel confident flashing your smile!
  • Neutralizes acids to help fight erosion of the tooth surface.

THE PROBLEM: Plaque on Teeth

It’s the sticky, whitish layer that forms on your teeth between brushings and carries bacteria that can cause gingivitis and make you sick.

THE SOLUTION: Baking Soda for Teeth Cleaning and Gum Disease Prevention

Baking soda toothpaste is gentle, natural and helps to eliminate more plaque in hard to reach places than regular toothpaste!

What Causes Plaque on Teeth?

Every day, your teeth get covered with a sticky film of bacteria called plaque. It's a natural occurrence. After every meal or snack, some bacteria reacts with sugar in the foods to produce acids that can attack and weaken tooth enamel.

Why is it Important to Remove Plaque from Teeth?

Removing and reducing the amount of plaque on teeth is imperative because cavities and gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease, are caused by bacteria in plaque. Thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gums twice a day can help prevent cavities, gingivitis, or worse, periodontitis–a more advanced form of gum disease that can cause tooth loss!

What are Some Plaque Removal Remedies?

Being gentle is paramount. Avoid aggressive brushing, which can cause you to lose dentin (the tissue beneath the enamel) on exposed roots! Instead, choose a toothpaste containing baking soda, such as any of the ARM & HAMMER™ brand toothpastes. They’re low in abrasion, gentle on teeth and gums, and leave you with that great, fresh mouth feel. ARM & HAMMER™ Sensitive Toothpaste, for example, is up to 40% more gentle to exposed roots than a leading sensitive whitening toothpaste.*
