No: Magic eraser sponge is a cleaning product and likely contains cleaning chemicals. Inside the mouth is full of thin gum, cheek and lip tissues. They are thin and readily absorbs anything, including chemicals. The absorbed cleaner chemical will be delivered straight into your body. It is not advisable at all to use magic eraser sponge on your teeth or in your mouth.
