I Brush My Teeth Only With Baking Soda and Salt. Is That Bad?

Posted on 6/3/2024 by Thomas Mahar
Bowl and spoon with baking sodaMany adults look for natural alternatives for their hygiene products because they are cheaper and healthier than manufactured products. However, how do you know if natural remedies are better than manufactured toothpaste for your teeth? Here is an explanation of natural remedies and their benefits and consequences.

Why Do People Want to Try Natural Solutions for Toothpaste?

People tend to switch toothpaste for a few different reasons. Perhaps they have a family member who is allergic to a toothpaste ingredient. For example, many people have a gluten intolerance, and many produced kinds of toothpaste have gluten in them as a thickening agent. Also, some people prefer natural toothpaste with fewer chemical additives, especially if they are chemically sensitive. If your family is plant-based, you may worry that your toothpaste may have products you do not want.

Can I Use Natural Toothpaste Remedies for My Teeth?

If you are interested in natural toothpaste, you may want to talk to our dentist. Whether you use natural toothpaste or not depends on several factors. One of the largest factors that may determine whether your family can use natural toothpaste remedies is the age of your family members. If you have children, you will want to keep them on fluoride toothpaste because it helps keep their teeth hard and reduces the amount of bacteria in your mouth.

Luckily, many toothpaste companies make allergy-free and all-natural toothpaste, many of which contain fluoride. You can find examples of natural toothpaste online.

What Are Some Natural Toothpaste Remedies?

If you are not worried about fluoride in your toothpaste, cleaning your teeth with baking soda and salt is a good choice. Some people prefer to use charcoal or clay mixed in as well. All of these natural remedies can work effectively for adults. If you are unsure whether you should switch toothpaste or not, why not ask our dentist? You can give us a call today to make an appointment.
