Handy hints for teeth using baking soda

Freshen Dentures

Dissolve 2 teaspoons of baking soda into a glass of warm water. Then just soak your dentures to loosen food, get rid of odours, and freshen any lingering bad taste. It also works for retainers and mouth guards. For a more thorough job, clean them also with some bicarbonate and a toothbrush.

Inexpensive Mouthwash

That garlic chillie prawn feast was delish. But now your breath is keeping even your pet dog away. Swish a teaspoon of baking soda in a half glass of water and rinse your mouth. It doesn’t just mask the smell with a minty scent like most mouthwashes do. Baking soda actually banishes the odour altogether.

Green Teeth Cleaner

Baking soda works well in physically removing plaque, the sticky film of bacteria in your mouth. Over time, a plaque buildup hardens into tartar and can lead to gum disease. Dip a wet toothbrush into the baking powder and brush as usual. It doesn’t have the fluoride you need to protect against tooth decay and cavities. Many public water supplies have added fluoride. Even so, brush with regular toothpaste as well to be safe.
