Baking soda is very abrasive! Will start wearing the enamel off your teeth. Don't use for long periods.

yes, this works, but not near as good as coconut oil (it's immediate results). Lemon and other acidic foods strip your teeth of enamel which is the first line of defense against cavity forming.( I found this out the hard way from juicing) Everyone should quit using toothpaste unless it's no fluoride and homemade.

You can rub the banana skin on cracked heel and put on a sock. It helps

It won't neutralize it enough, I've heard of many people who have tried this and it ended up stripping their enamel and making their teeth sensitive. It's just not worth it

Don't do this combo! The acid from the lemon juice will kill your teeth and strip the enamel. I know it's popular bc it works but you'll regret it later (sensitive teeth too)
