Yeah, I remember something about that. All the arm and hammer stuff with baking soda was pretty bad. Straight baking soda will turn your teeth grey after many years. I think Toms of Main and Sensodyne were pretty gentle.
I use sensodyne. I have sensative teeth as is, which is made worse by a particular tooth that has a receeding gum line. It's not visable, but I really should have it corrected. I just need to wait for a week where it wont be too much of a push up to be in pain and taste nothing by my own blood
Sensitivity aside, Aquafreash Extreme Clean leaves my teeth feeling the most clean.
