I have been using fghp after I brush my teeth. I take a swing of fghp & hold it in my mouth for 2-3 seconds & discharge into the sink. Then I will take my mouth wash & do the same. Your teeth will be whiter & cleaner. My dentist told me that fghp prevents plaque buid up.

Fghp=food grade hydrogen peroxide

I swish with H2O2 before brushing with baking soda. I also add two or three drops of Dr. B-----'s liquid soap (peppermint) on top of the baking soda. Once in a blue moon I'll put a drop of oil of oregano on my toothbrush such as after I've been sick or if I feel like I'm trying to catch a cold/flu or something. My teeth have really whitened up since I've been doing this. I've also noticed that the sensitivity has totally gone away too. I haven't used toothpaste since, don't want the poison fluoride. Been doing this for approximately six months now. Dentist appt is coming up. We'll see how that goes.

Just wanted to comment on the posts regarding the use of H202 for teeth whitening. Everyone is different and as such will yield varying results, however caution must be used. Personally I do not think it is a good idea to use H202 on a daily basis as you will kill off the good bacteria in your mouth. This could lead to "black tongue" syndrome which is not a pleasant thing. H202 is serious stuff which can yield good and bad results if not respected for its inherent power. We are all different, experiment SLOWLY when using this stuff. Whats good for one is not good for all.....

I have a cap in front. Will the HP whiten this as well as my other teeth?

I was/am using H2O2 for everything that ails me for about 3 months now. I use it every night in my vaporizers/humidifiers, in the cat's water dish, spray on after a shower, and I also had used it every day for about a week as a mouthwash before brushing. I had to stop because the sides of my tongue got all red and raw. It stayed like that for about 10 days after stopping the h202. My tongue did heal, but I wonder, has anyone else had this happen to them? I am nervous about using it for whitening again. Thanks for any info.

Just a quick add-in. I had been using over-the-counter whiteners for over 2 years, rinses, gels, etc. and none of them gave me these results, barely made a dent. There's no telling what else I was absorbing in my body with those!

I started using HP about 2 weeks ago after my mom commented over Christmas how stained my teeth looked. I'm a 45 year old smoker/coffee drinker. I haven't been able to get to a dentist for a cleaning in 3 years - valid reasons. The stains were bad, dark sections in the front lower teeth, in between the crevices and just overall dingy and dark. I was very embarrassed. I started using the HP as Bob from Memphis recommended, swishing away while I was in the shower, spitting and rinsing when I was done. The first few times I did this it burned hot as well, like Gail from Cincinnati said. But I continued anyway. For an added benefit afterward I wet my toothbrush, dip it in some baking soda, brush for about 2 minutes, rinse well, then my regular toothpaste. In just 12 days I am about halfway there to white teeth! My gums feel stronger and my mouth feels so much cleaner. I have a chipped tooth as well, this has actually kept it pretty clean and I'm sure it's kept a lot of bacteria out. My breath is much better as well, thank goodness! I should mention that I use an electric toothbrush and I'm sure this has helped speed up the process.

As with natural remedies, symptoms seem to get worse before they get better sometimes. I have seen other people say on this website that its just your body purging the toxins, and continuing with the remedy does indeed solve the problem for most people. Others say, if its not working, you are missing an important step, or not doing it right. I would just continue with it. The toxins DO have to go somewhere...good luck, be patient.

I have just been informed by my dentist that I should have my teeth bleached as they are going yellow - however I am NOT a smoker and not a great coffee drinker. My friend told me about baking soda - brush with baking soda before brushing normally with toothpaste - please could you give me some more information on this - how often can I use baking soda and any side effects ?

After reading about "whitening teeth with the H/P", I decided to try it. I have been rinsing with it now for about four months (started doing it religiously - two to three times a day - 1 Tablespoon of H/P swishing and rolling it around in my mouth, leaving it in for up to ten-fifteen minutes before spitting it out, (after I brushed my teeth), and the results: my teeth are now absolutely... WHITE! I get a lot of compliments about how nice they look and I did it without getting them professionally whitened. Although they are not the chalky white, they are pretty close to it! I did not see results right away, however. It took probably a week or two before I started seeing some really significant improvement. I went to the dentist a while back and they wanted to know what I was using that got my teeth so white. I told them about the H/P. I asked my dentist if it was harmful to continue rinsing with it also. My dentist said my gums and mouth looked very healthy and she didn't see any reason to discontinue. She also commented that I had hardly any plaque build-up (I am guilty of flossing every day!), and that my gums and teeth looked very, very healthy! H/P works. Give it at least a couple weeks to see some results.

Since lemons are acidic, won't the juice in this recipe break down tooth enamel?

Better But With Side Effects

The other night I swished with drug store hydrogen peroxide to see if it would indeed remove the tea and coffee stains from my teeth. The peroxide was 3% (the kind that says it's for oral use) mixed with an equal amount of water. The directions say to swish it for at least a minute, I did it for ten minutes. There was no apparent difference immediately afterward. The next day (or was it the day after that?) I made a recipe with turmeric in it and immediately after eating it brushed my teeth with baking soda. I was surprised because then the teeth suddenly seemed whiter. But now my gums are very sensitive to my toothbrush and bleed a bit. I have been using a hard bristle brush with baking soda once a day at night, and never had a problem like this before. They were not sensitive prior to this incident. Just a word of caution.

A dentist told me that the enamal on teeth is very hard, that is why they get away with putting silica in toothpaste. It is unlikely, therefor, that the salt is grinding the enamal off teeth.

You will need to mash up one ripe strawberry and add in 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda. Then use a soft toothbrush to spread the mixture onto your teeth.

Leave on for 5 minutes, then brush thoroughly with toothpaste to remove the berry-baking powder mix. Rinse. And floss - get out all strawberry seeds.

Take a look into mirror to note your smile whiteness.

I tried the remedy that Bob from Memphis, TN suggested (03/30/09)and in just one day I notice a great improvement! I did what he said, "grab your bottle of peroxide and put enough in your mouth to fill it up but not to the point of gagging on it...". Since he said he does it in the shower, I figured that I could do it while washing the dishes (about 20 minutes). I didn't swish much, because I didn't want to swallow the hydrogen peroxide (wow, does it ever expand!). I too drink very strong coffee every day (3 cups), so I thought, if it works for him, it might work for me, even though I also smoke. And let me tell you, this really does work! I noticed after about 15 minutes that when I did try to swish, my old amalgam filling felt sort of hot. My teeth are definitely whiter; however, there are still some stains between my bottom teeth. Hopefully those will go away with time. Now if I could just quit smoking... Thanks!

What I've been doing for ages now is take one capful of peroxide dunk my toothbrush in it to moisten it then dip it in baking soda, I then take the capful of peroxide and dump it under my tongue and then proceed to brush with it, it will foam up get ready for that, I brush for two minutes then I spit it all out and rinse and then I use toothpaste to coat my teeth with whatever ingredients toothpaste has to further protect my teeth and also have the chance to scrape my tongue with the toothpaste to get rid of any excess peroxide. I do this about once or twice a month. My friends started questioning why I had such white teeth so I had to tell them my secret, some of them have done it daily, I've seen the results and they are so happy. But my teeth are white and don't need any more than what I do, as you go along you know what works and what doesn't. I'm 53yrs old and have beautiful white teeth because of the care I took throughout the years.

My understanding on this is that you find peroxide included in all of your teeth whiteners that are sold and we have toothpaste that has baking soda, so I went full strength with both to get the best effect.

Hi Debbie, try not to use drug store hydrogen peroxide. You can get food grade hydrogen peroxide from some health food stores. It is cleaner safer. It is usually used by people growing sprouts to eat. If you can't find a local source just do a search for 'food grade hydrogen peroxide'. It usually comes in a 35% solution.

DO NOT USE LEMON JUICE. lemon juice is acidic and will harm tooth enamel, which will cause tooth decay.

NAY I used the hydrogen peroxide 3% for 2 days and it burned my tongue and mouth.it burned while doing it and felt like i had drank something too hot.

Use more than a cap full. Use enough to fill your mouth up. Try to swish it at least 10 minutes, if possible. Since you are a smoker I would say give it about 1 month before you will start really seeing the difference. Even with a nonsmoker I would say about 2 weeks or so. I have been using this method for at least 10 or more years and it really works, just give it time. My sister told me a while back she does the same thing with regular mouth wash and her teeth don't get white. I responded, of course not, the hydrogen peroxide bleaches your teeth. Mouth wash just gives you fresh breath and I suppose kills germs, the way the ad says. Good luck!

I have been using HP as Bob suggested for three days now. I use one capful & swish it around while I'm getting ready for work. I haven't noticed my teeth much whiter yet (although I am a smoker and I also drink dark coffee), HOWEVER, my teeth feel much stronger and tighter! This reminds me of oil-pulling with HP instead of oil.

Will using Peroxide everyday like this be harmful at all?? Is it possible that it will kill good bacteria or do harm in any way?? I'd like to try this if it's safe. Thanks for any feedback on this....

My Secret for Whiter Teeth: I really like this site. I've read numerous helpful suggestions on here I plan on trying. Here is one that I have been doing for many years now that I would like to pass on to you. Dentist are making a fortune off bleaching teeth when you can do it yourself at home for a few cents per day. I have been using regular off the shelf 3% hydrogen peroxide to bleach my teeth for years now. I am a male 52 years old and even today when I go to the dentist they are astounded at how white my teeth are and find it hard to believe that I don't have them bleached. Every day after you brush your teeth grab your bottle of peroxide and put enough in your mouth to fill it up but not to the point of gagging on it. I like to do this while I am shaving but it also works well to put it in your mouth as you are stepping into the shower. Leave it in your mouth the entire time you are in the shower and right before you turn the water off spit it out and rinse well with water. While it is in your mouth swish it and just keep doing that the whole time it is in your mouth. Try to do it once per day every day of the week. You should see a difference within a week or two. If you are a smoker or heavy coffee drinker you will probably see a difference even quicker. I happen to like really strong black coffee. I drink about 4 cups every morning. I buy several big bottles which you can get at places like Costco or Sam's. The cost is very minimal and for just a few cents per day you will have gleaming white teeth. Watch, people will start commenting on what white teeth you have and ask how you get them so white. I always reply I just brush with that baking soda and peroxide type tooth paste. I guess you can answer however you choose. Hope some of you get some use out of this.

Use equal amounts of salt and lemon juice to your teeth.It is the best home remedy for teeth whitening . Also rub the inner part of the orange peel on your teeth to whiten them.

Having noticed that I was developing two quite noticeable stains on my upper 2 front teeth from coffee, I was concerned about yet another dental bill. I didn't want to buy commercial teeth whiteners so I thought I'd check EarthClinic before I made my appointment. One reader had recommended brushing with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. I thought she meant that 'with time' the stains would go away. I immediately went in to brush these 2 teeth and within 30 seconds, both stains were completely gone! Be warned that if you have an electric toothbrush---your surrounding gum tissue may turn white but it only lasts 20 minutes or so. I am very pleased.

I used about 2 teaspoons of safflower oil and pulled for 20 minutes. My teeth are whiter. Two brown spots are almost gone. My gums are more irritated, which I see as a positive thing because they're healing. My head!! It started hurting so much about an hour after I finished. I had to take something and go to sleep. It still throbs a little and it has been 15 hours since I pulled. How long does that last? After a week? two weeks? I don't know if I can stand it. I am mainly trying this for my gums/teeth and also for arthritis and TMJ. Any feedback on arthritis and TMJ would be nice. The headache isn't worth it though if I have to endure it for very long. Thanks for the feed back.

Oh MY GOD!! oh my god.. all i can say is wow!! i read about oil pulling this morning went out and got Sunflower and Safflower oil, i've done 2 sessions with the oil pulling, i must say that it did not get as foamy and white as i thought it would. it was still somewhat yellow. but my teeth are SO MUCH WHITER!! only after 2 sessions!! i have a persistant cough that never goes away no matter what i've used, and i've noticed that after each session, i'm coughing a lot more. i feel almost like a heavyness in my chest but when i do cough, i feel like i'm loosening up whatever it is that has been in my lungs that kept me with that cough. it has a funny kind of taste when i cough. i don't smoke either, well i did when i was 19 but that only lasted about 6 months (me trying to be cool) and i'm going to be 25 next month. i was really only trying it for my teeth, but now i'm going to keep doing it in hopes of clearing up my lungs and removing varicose veins. i have 2 kids now and pregnant with my 3rd so they have been a big problem for me. I will be a regular on this site i can say that much for sure, so i will keep you posted!
