Hydrogen Peroxide


Some toothpastes and oral hygiene products contain hydrogen peroxide. These have not been reported to cause white spots in the mouth if used as directed. Are the white spots on the gums, tongue, cheeks, teeth, uvula etc.? See your dentist to be sure what these spots are and what the appropriate treatment for them are. Good Luck!!!

Tissue damage


Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful oxidizer. The bubbling that you see is form the breakdown into oxygen and water. This can kill bacteria in your mouth but it can also kill normal cells. The white spots that you see in your mouth is tissue damage. Do not rinse with full strength hydrogen peroxide. It can hurt more than it helps. There are better ways to lighten teeth. See a dentist.
