I want to make a healthy toothpaste with mint extract, baking soda and glycerine. Is glycerine bad for teeth?I heard it coats and damages them.

In brief: You are funny
Try the ones already available.
Lots more science behind them. Do not try to re invent how to walk, gets to be dangerous sometimes. If you have a degree/masters in chemistry tho, by all means give it a try.

In brief: Not a problem
Glycerine will tend to coat the teeth briefly but it won't cause damage.
You should brush with a Fluoride containing toothpaste at least once a day to help prevent tooth decay.

In brief: Not a good option
We have seen a great number of patients with soft tissue irritation from these types of products the philosophy of using baking soda and glycerin is not a good option.
