Enjoy Your Favourite Foods and Still Protect Your Teeth
Thanks to Arm & Hammer Toothpaste with Baking Soda
I know we all like to enjoy our favourite foods, but some of those favourites can be hard on our teeth. I’m not going to give up my favourite foods because I know I can help protect them with Arm & Hammer toothpaste with baking soda. Did you know that baking soda, a natural ingredient helps to gently clean and neutralize harmful plaque acids that form in our mouths all the time, especially after we eat and drink?
One of my favourite things to use to cook with is tomatoes or tomato sauce which is a great source of vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid but the acidity in a tomato can also accelerate dental erosion caused by the plaque acids that form in your mouth. Say what?! Does this mean no more chili, spaghetti sauce and more, do I have to eliminate tomatoes from our menu?
The good news is, of course, we don’t have to eliminate our favourite foods. I can’t tell you how many recipes I use tomatoes for or a form of tomato in, I’d be eliminating a lot of meal choices if I couldn’t use tomatoes. Arm & Hammer toothpaste with baking soda has been proven to remove more plaque in hard-to-reach areas around the tooth and gums than non-baking soda or regular toothpaste. They also help to quickly neutralize the plaque acids to help protect your teeth!Whew, I can continue to make my comfort foods of pasta with my favourite meat and tomato sauce, chili and more and still protect my teeth. Arm & Hammer toothpaste with baking soda protects the protective layer of our teeth, the enamel. It’s why it’s so important that we don’t erode the enamel on our teeth with the acidic foods we might be eating. Some toothpastes can be abrasive and actually damage the enamel but not Arm & Hammer toothpaste with baking soda! In fact, their Truly Radiant toothpaste combines baking soda and fluoride with calcium and phosphate to clean, protect, remineralize and strengthen the enamel surface by acid attacks!I’m a big fan of the Arm & Hammer™ Pro Sensitive™ Whitening Toothpaste as I have very sensitive teeth and gums so this one is made for people like me! It’s a low abrasion formula to gently whiten and provide relief from tooth and nerve sensitivity. For those who have such a sensitivity, you know how nice it is to get help with that while still cleaning and protecting your teeth. If you haven’t tried an Arm & Hammer toothpaste with baking soda, why the heck not? You’ve got nothing to lose and so much to gain and keep like the enamel on your teeth!
Now if you’ll excuse me I think I will go and have a bowl of chili for lunch.
