Words of Wisdom No.6 – Brush your Teeth with Baking Soda Once a Week


Everyone has their own brand of toothpaste that they prefer.  It may be based on flavor, cleaning power, whitening power, or just a generally preference.  However, if you are looking for a little extra whitening power in your dental routine, try brushing with baking soda once a week.

How does it work?

A number of patients visit the dental office and complain about stained teeth. This might be due to drinking coffee, tea, soda, or wine. Many ask if there is an alternative way to whiten their teeth. Well, one age-old remedy works wonders. Baking soda is a very affordable way to remove stains off the teeth. Simply mix a bit of baking soda with water until it forms a paste. Dip your toothbrush in the paste. Brush teeth with the paste as you normally would. Rinse afterwards with water.

A note about Invisalign

Invisalign is a new popular alternative to the more traditional metal braces. They are very effective at correcting overbites, under-bites, and straightening teeth in general. In fact, requests for Invisalign consultations are up because of all the advantages associated with the device. The aligners can take them out at any time and they are more comfortable than metal braces.
How long does Invisalign take? This is the number one question asked by patients interested in the device. The length of time that it takes to straighten the teeth depends on a number of factors. Some patients only need to wear the device for a few months, while others might need to wear the device 12 months or more. Consult with Nalchajian Orthodontics for more information.
