Is baking soda safe to use for brushing a baby's teeth? I read that I should be using fluoride toothpaste, but I'm afraid that my daughter has the same fluoride sensitivity that I have. Is using baking soda a safe alternative? .
Absolutely not. Abrasive baking soda, a baking ingredient, is not a good substitute for toothpaste. While children need carefully monitored amounts of fluoride, Fluoride supplements and toothpaste have to be carefully titrated in children. 1st dental ck-up age 1, if for no other reason than to manage toothpaste/fluoride. Get your information from dentist rather than from reader's digest.
