How to Use:

You can use it like a normal toothpaste. Apply small amount of the paste on the brush, brush your teeth, and rinse it off.

Warnings:

  • When I told this recipe to my dentist, he advised me to research the abrasive effect of sodium bicarbonate on tooth enamel. Based on Abrasiveness index, since 0-70 range is accepted as “mild abrasive, sodium bicarbonate has the value of 7. Most of the toothpaste on the market is more abrasive than carbonate.
  • You need to keep sodium bicarbonate away from aluminium cups.

If you are saying that “homemade toothpaste is not my thing”:

  • If we assume that you brush your teeth twice a day, trying this recipe at least once a day (for example at night) will reduce your toothpaste consumption.
  • You may choose to buy ecological toothpaste on the market.
