Although I enjoy some coconut-oil based toothpastes, there is really nothing that beats powder for me. It’s effervescent and fizzes up as soon as it hits the saliva in your mouth and makes for an excellent foam. Your teeth feel incredibly clean for hours. An acidic mouth (and body!) is a huge cause for tooth decay, especially because bacteria creates and thrives in an acidic environment. Baking soda is one of the the most alkalizing substances known to man and can create an environment in your mouth that decay-causing bacteria doesn’t like.
