Who among us has never heard of the virtues of lemon and baking soda for natural tooth whitening? However, if each of them is particularly effective for this process, it is recommended to think twice before using it frequently and in large quantities.

Caring for your teeth is essential to maintain good oral hygiene. To achieve this, baking soda and lemon are two ingredients with many benefits. However, there are some basic precautions that must be taken into consideration before thinking about using them together.

Baking soda has many virtues for teeth:

- Baking soda is effective against halitosis (fight bad breath)
- Baking soda rebalances the levels of acid in the mouth
- Baking soda discourages the formation of dental plaque
- Baking soda prevents infections and diseases of the gums

Lemon is a citrus fruit renowned for its innumerable benefits and praised for its ability to whiten teeth. What people do not know, however, is that it has a very high rate of erosivity because of its acidity and that in case of frequent use, it seriously affects your teeth by eroding the enamel.

Usage mistakes
It is often recommended to combine lemon with baking soda to whiten teeth. This grandmother's trick is a regular tour of the web and attracts many followers. Unfortunately, they ignore or fail to take into account that it can only be used on an ad hoc basis, once or twice a month.

Indeed, if these two ingredients effectively allow you to eliminate tartar and encrusted stains on the teeth thanks to the acidity of the lemon and the granular consistency of baking soda, they are also capable of causing the opposite effect by damaging your oral health and weakening your dentition when used beyond the recommended dosage according to the College of Physicians and Dentists of New Zealand;

A study clearly shows the rate of abrasiveness of lemon and its devastating effects on tooth enamel in the absence of precautions. In addition, other research has shown that the use of baking soda alone or mixed with hydrogen peroxide (by the care of a health professional) can be more effective, even on tough stains ( traces of coffee, tea ...) while protecting your teeth.

What is the impact of this erosion on your teeth?
Erosion causes loss of tooth enamel due to excessive exposure to acidic foods. The e-mail, which is the solid and protective coating of the tooth, becomes worn, thus exposing the dentin located underneath and causing severe pain and sensitivity to hot-cold exacerbated.

This works just after eating foods rich in acids (lemon, tomato sauce, soft drinks ...) and causes the softening of tooth enamel for a short time, thus inducing the loss of minerals it contains.

Normally, the role of saliva is to restore the natural balance of the mouth and to cancel the effect of citric acid. This mission is, however, disturbed in the face of too frequent use and results in the loss of pieces of enamel.

How to use lemon while preserving your teeth?

- Brush your teeth before drinking lemon juice

- Always favor fresh lemons, not concentrated juices from the supermarket.

- Promote the use of a straw to minimize the impact of citric acid on your teeth.

- Drink the lemon drink quickly rather than prolonged sips

- Rinse your mouth immediately with clear water after eating

- Frequently drink water to eradicate dry mouth

- Choose carefully your toothbrush, it must be flexible because this model is less aggressive for enamel and gum

- Brush your teeth gently and avoid energetic brushing that can sometimes cause bleeding of the gums.

It is recommended to wait at least 1 hour before brushing your teeth to allow calcium from saliva to remineralize your teeth.

For even more prevention, one study advises chewing unsweetened chewing gum to help neutralize amounts of acid in your mouth by stimulating saliva production (whose enzymes and proteins eliminate bacteria).
