In brief: Mucosal damage

Can hurt the mucosa - to help you further if you are doing this for whitening teeth a better way is to rinse with orthophosphoric acid available as super phosphazyme by biotics cost $15 use 10-15 drops with water rinse then brush acid off with baking soda - will whiten teeth and eliminate odor. I do not like hydrogen peroxide for mouth or in fresh cuts - will cause more harm than good.

In brief: It won't hurt you

But it will taste nasty. Ith all available washes, why use peroxide?
