Have you ever tried brushing your teeth with baking soda and sea salt? If not, you have probably been avoiding it because of a very popular misconception. It’s been said for years that baking soda is too abrasive for your teeth and will destroy your tooth enamel.  But there could be nothing further from the truth. Baking soda is actually one of the best things you can use for your teeth and gums. Baking soda has been used as a tooth cleanser for over 150 years.  Did you know that when a toothpaste is produced it must get FDA approval before it can be sold to the public?  Toothpastes are first rated according to their abrasiveness.  This is called the RDA value or “Relative Dentin Abrasiveness”.  It’s measured on a scale from 0 to 200.  According to the chart, is actually less abrasive than all toothpastes. Pure baking soda has an RDA of 7.  The closest RDA to this is 35, which is Arm & Hammer toothpaste (which in fact is made with baking soda).

Baking soda aids in removing harmful bacteria that causes bad breath, infections, sore throats and cough. Mixing baking soda and water releases free radicals from the mixture. These free radicals break down the stain molecules on the enamel, which can be removed from the teeth using a toothbrush.  Raw sea salt can also restrict bacterial growth and balance pH levels in the mouth.

Baking soda and Sea Salt For Strong and Healthy Teeth

Method

  • Crush 1tsp  salt to make it more gentle for the teeth. This makes the salt less abrasive on the teeth.
  • Add 2 tsp. baking soda and stir the two ingredients well with a spoon.
  • Wet your toothbrush and dip it in the salt and baking soda mixture. Brush the teeth as usual. Rinse with water.
Sea salt and water can also  be used as a mouth rinse.  It can be used instead of a commercially produced mouthwash. It will not attack any good bacteria.

Salt Water Mouth Rinse (for sore gums, mouth, or throat)

Ingredients:

½ cup warm water
½ teaspoon sea salt (here)
¼ teaspoon baking soda

Directions:

Mix water, sea salt and baking soda and stir until dissolved

Take a mouthful and gently swish it your mouth (or gargle) then spit it out.
