It's great stuff, I've been using it for just about a year or two when I decided to switch over from flouride. Sure, the first time you use it you'll think you just ate a parasitic sandwich off of the floor of a Vietnamese brothel, but you get used to it over time.

What was it a professor once told me about some leaves? Some leaves that people used to chew in ancient times that took care of dental hygiene, but were concealed after the industrial revolution?

Wish I had a better memory.

ANYWAY, for all my fellow tinfoil hatters, baking soda toothpaste is the BEE'S KNEES.

I can tell you haven't discovered the joy and simple pleasure of baking soda toothpaste. No Fluoride! It cleans your mouth!

It's good.

Anytime! Be warned, it taste very strong at first, but you get used to it after just a few uses. I use the arm % hammer brand, but I'm sure all of them are about the same.

I heard baking soda would sand the enamel off your teeth. I have used it in a pinch when out of ordinary tooth paste.

You can't be very old............

We used plain baking soda on a wet brush back in the 60s.
You just ran your brush under the tap and dipped it in the powder, and then brushed your teeth. Don't get me started on charcoal.

We also walked uphill in a meter of snow to get to school, and we had to walk uphill all the way home again.:shk:

That's a myth.

Flouride is the bad one.

Peroxide works well for the blood stains, just irritates the gumz a bit!

Yes but there doesn't seem to be a way for the whole family to use baking soda for tooth brushing. I suppose you could pour every person a small zip lock bag of it no?

*Facepalm*

Brother, It's toothpaste made with baking soda instead of fluoride, It's actually toothpaste sold in stores (like wal mart, safeway). You really thought I mean brushing your teeth with baking soda or you're making one of those sarcasm jokes? (I'm not fond of sarcasm)

LOL

Yeah I thought you meant the yellow box, arm and hammer, powdery substance baking soda.

I don't blame you for avoiding fluoride in toothpaste. I did the same thing by switching over to a non-fluoride brand myself, but it's not baking soda based and has a tolerable flavour. It costs a bundle but the health benefits make the cost more justifiable.

I have a son who suffers from frequent canker sores and he was advised to use a toothpaste without SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) -- a known skin irritant. It took me a while to track down a suitable product that was both fluoride and SLS free. His teeth are mottled from ingesting fluoride containing toothpaste as a child. One of my greatest regrets as a parent is that if I knew then what I know now, I would NEVER have permitted any of my children to use the stuff. Fluoride is toxic. Plain and simple.

I agree with the member who complained that baking soda toothpastes are gritty.

Hey man, you sound like a great parent, don't blame yourself for not knowing about the dangers of fluoride, it's not exactly broadcast on your nightly news.
