Sodium bicarbonate: the essential ingredient in toothpaste

When mixed with saliva, sodium bicarbonate acts as an alkaline pH buffer. It neutralizes plaque acids which contain bacteria responsible for bad breath. Furthermore, as a smooth abrasive powder, sodium bicarbonate helps clean teeth without damaging the gingiva, enamel or dentin.
