A 30-year-old female asked:
After using toothpaste I brush a second time with cinnamon powder. Gums became sore and mouth hurt. Could cinnamon cause oral issues? Antibacterial.

Cinnamon: Cinnamon can be very irritating to the soft tissues of the mouth. If you want to use something antibacterial, use one of the name brand antiseptic mouthwashes preferably one that is alcohol free. Read the ingredients. Look for one with as few ingredients as possible.
