DOES BAKING SODA PREVENT PLAQUE ON TEETH?

 

Your mouth is a sophisticated bacterial ecosystem. It is filled with hundreds of species of different bacteria, most of which coexist in harmony with you, the human that they live on.

However, there are also a number of not so harmonious bacteria that build complex shelters on your teeth called plaque. This plaque is similar to the green algae that grows in your fish tank. Once it takes hold, it grows a thicker protective layer over itself.

Toothpaste commercials will have fancy graphics that show how their product actually prevents plaque build-up, implying that by using their products containing baking soda etc. which will miraculously prevent plaque from sticking to your teeth. This is just marketing to sell their products.

The only way to really keep plaque off your teeth is by using mechanical removal with a toothbrush and other plaque removal aids such as floss and interdental brushes (https://piksters.com/).

Maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing two times a day, flossing daily and regular dental visits can help keep your teeth in their best health. If you would like to know more please get in touch with us and call 13000BELLA.
