Does “Baking Soda” work as a natural tooth paste?

Baking soda is natural cavity fighter because it has powerful alkaline effect in the mouth. The bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease require an acidic environment in which to thrive. Baking soda is also a natural tooth whitener and stain remover. more

Thanks to Sunil Gupta Ji and Durga Prasad Ji for ticking Helpful. Regarding the concern raised by Durga Prasad ji , I am attaching the web addresses wherein in one it says harmful and in the other baking soda is used to control hypertension. But how much one is using for cleaning teeth and out of how much is ingested. I think very very negligible quantity.

Following information is in case considerable quantity of baking soda is taken. Please read and decide yourself:

Baking Soda : NEGATIVE EFFECT
Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. It is made up of sodium, hydrogen and carbon. Of these three elements, the sodium is of particular concern with regard to blood pressure. According to the American Heart Association, 1 teaspoon of baking soda contains 1,000 mg sodium.

Baking Soda: POSITIVE EFFECT
Yes, this remedy is so simple and cheap it almost seems ridiculous. But don’t be fooled because baking soda is actually one of the quickest and easiest ways to naturally reduce hypertension.

And the reason for this is simple… baking soda is the ultimate pH booster!

Nothing will spike your body’s pH level (and make it highly alkaline) as fast as baking soda. Simply mix up an 1/8th of a teaspoon of baking soda in a full glass of filtered water, along with 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (see next cure on potassium) and drink this concoction twice daily on an empty stomach. For details please see:

Yes, there is a rationale in Mr. Durga Prasad Ji post. more  
Baking Sod or Sodium bi-carbonate is also a salt of the Na group. As sodium is a strict no-no for BP patients, does use of baking soda, even as mouth-wash or for tooth cleaning cause any hike in the BP levels? More knowledgeable can throw light on this point. Should BP patients avoid baking soda? more
