What best for your teeth?
Is using Baking Soda better than using Tooth Paste?
What is most important is using a toothpaste with fluoride! Then it is a matter of personal preference as to whether you use a toothpaste with baking soda or not. The use of baking soda "claims" to help the gums. There is not a whole lot of research backing this up. The greatest benefit from toothpaste is the addition of fluoride to help prevent tooth decay.
