To brush your teeth with baking soda, mix equal parts baking soda and water, dip your toothbrush in the mixture, and brush your teeth as usual. Use baking soda as a supplement to your normal brushing routine, as dentists don’t recommend relying on baking soda alone to clean teeth.
- Mix baking soda and water
In a small container with a lid, mix equal parts baking soda and tap water until a paste forms.
- Dip your toothbrush in the paste
Dip your toothbrush in the paste, or use a cotton swab to scoop the paste out of the container and apply it to the brush.
- Brush your teeth as usual
Brush your teeth with the baking soda paste just as you normally brush. Baking soda eliminates surface stains from teeth, but does not provide protection against cavities. Use fluoride toothpaste to strengthen enamel and protect teeth.
