Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) has long been suggested for tooth brushing and as a tooth whitener. Baking soda dates back to ancient Egypt. The ability of baking soda to neutralize acids makes it an inexpensive remedy for full body issues as well as the prevention of dental disease. Ten patients ranging in age from 20-60 years old participated in the study involving tooth brushing with baking soda. At baseline they were screened for hypertension, salivary flow, salivary PH, gingival tissue appearance and bleeding.
They were instructed to brush daily with baking soda instead of tooth paste. They were to put a half a teaspoon of baking soda into their hand, wet the tooth brush with water and brush their teeth with it. They were also asked to add a teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water to make a mouth rinse. After rinsing, they were to instructed to spit out the rinse and not rinse. They were given PH strips and asked to record the PH of their saliva upon waking each morning and record the results.
Patients returned 1-2 weeks later. The group showed reduced PH scores over the test period and also reduced bleeding and signs of gingivitis. Patients reported their mouths felt cleaner.
Dr. Goldstein helps patients with their oral care by providing basic cleanings, treatment for periodontal disease and home care instruction. Dr. Goldstein serves patients from Randolph, Mendham, Chester, Rockaway, Morristown and surrounding areas.
