Cleaning teeth with baking soda

Recently, I spoke with several people regarding the uses of baking soda.  Baking soda also known as sodium bicarbonate is a multipurpose product used as a home cleaning agent, deodorizer, personal care as well as oral hygiene.  From the individuals, I spoke with a lot of them have used the baking soda for oral care.  The explanation given was that the use of baking soda, Arm & Hammer brand, with peroxide, was equivalent of using regular toothpaste but better.  One interviewee expressed how combining the abrasive of the sodium bicarbonate with the antiseptic properties of the peroxide kept the two together as a dentifrice. Although the feeling was gritty it helped in aiding the cleanliness of your teeth and freshened your gums.  It’s not the best taste but it gives a brighter smile.  It is proven to work due to clinical studies and research done via sources on The Journal of the American Dental Association.
