  1. My dentist put me on to Baking Soda toothpaste to improve my teeth sensitivity and enamel, and it did, after the fancy toothpastes were no help. It took 2 or 3 weeks for the Baking Soda toothpaste to work and my teeth haven’t been sensitive since.

  2. That’s great Anna, thanks for sharing. I would imagine it has a lot to do with baking soda alkalising the mouth which would reduce infective bacteria and help remineralise. I use it plain on my teeth about twice a week. Which brand are you using?
