PURPOSE This in vitro experiment studied the effects of sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide on the cariogenic bacteria Streptococcus mutans through analysis with a spectrophotometer. METHODS The growth of S. mutans was analyzed using seven different environments. Twelve wells in each of the seven rows of a multi-well plate were used to incubate the test materials. In combinations of 10 microl distilled water, 100 microl broth, 10 microl 10% sucrose, 10 microl S. mutans, 10 microl 10… 
Antimicrobial Activity of Hydrogen Peroxide, Sesame and Gum Arabic against Streptococcus Mutans
TLDR
Based on the results of the present research, the sesame, GA and H 2 O 2 can be used in toothpaste and medicine for the treatment of dental caries and further research is needed to identify and characterize the active molecules in sesame and GA responsible for their antimicrobial properties and to determine its potential for use in pharmaceutical manufacture.
A Pilot Investigation into the Effect of Ammonium Chloride and Sodium Bicarbonate on Enamel Hardness in Wistar Rats.An In Vivo Study
TLDR
This pilot study suggests the erosive potential of two agents of which the public should be made aware, because NH4CI is used as a systemic and urinary acidifying agent, diuretic, expectorant, and as food additive, and NaHCO3 has particular significance in dentistry as an ingredient in dentifrices and mouth rinses.
The minimum inhibitory concentration of different candidal disinfecting agents
TLDR
Sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate and vinegar are not strong enough as denture cleansing agents in low concentrations, however, high concentrations used for 8 hours might be helpful for the user of dentures.
Antifungal activity of components used for decontamination of dental prostheses on the growth of Candida albicans
TLDR
The studied compounds, with the exception of Sodium Bicarbonate, have antifungal effect against C. albicans, which contribute for dental prostheses hygiene.
Management of Ralstonia solanacearum (potato wilt disease) virulence by using bioactive compounds
TLDR
It was found that, cow dung reduced 28.89% disease severity index which was followed by 26.67% in propolis and 22.22% in turmeric powder as compared to control in artificially inoculated potato plants against R. solanacearum.
Biological and chemical control of sunflower basal stem rot caused by Sclerotium rolfsii
TLDR
The studies showed significant inhibitory effects of potassium bicarbonate (KHCO3) either on growth parameters of Sclerotium rolfsii or in sunflower root/collar, and KHCO3 provided synergistic effects with Trichoderma harzianum, which was the most effective to prevent growth parameters and infectivity of S. roldsii.
Cold plasma: a novel approach to treat infected dentin—a combined ex vivo and in vitro study
TLDR
It was shown that the combination of cold plasma with CHX is the best available option for the disinfection of root surfaces.
The effect of denture cleanser 48% sodium bicarbonate on surface roughness changes of heat-cured acrylic resin
TLDR
There was no increase in the roughness of heat-cured acrylic resin after immersion in denture cleansing tablets containing 48% sodium bicarbonate, and the analysis showed no significant difference between surface roughness before and after soaking with a denture cleaning tablet containing 48%.

Antimicrobial Properties of Hydrogen Peroxide and Sodium Bicarbonate Individually and in Combination Against Selected Oral, Gram-negative, Facultative Bacteria
TLDR
It may be rational to use H2O2 and NaHC03 in combination to treat certain forms of periodontal disease when oxidative antimicrobial chemotherapy is indicated, because the bactericidal properties of these antimicrobial agents are synergistic.
Effects of sodium bicarbonate dentifrices on the levels of cariogenic bacteria in human saliva.
TLDR
Longer-term, large-scale studies need to be conducted to investigate the possible mechanisms of action of sodium bicarbonate on these organisms and to relate the results to possible cariostatic effects in humans.
The effect of sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide on the microbial flora of periodontal pockets. A preliminary report.
TLDR
It appeared that sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide have no unusual benefits in reducing the microbial flora of periodontal pockets.
Microbiological and clinical effects of chlorhexidine digluconate and hydrogen peroxide mouthrinses on developing plaque and gingivitis.
TLDR
The clinical and microbiological effects of an established therapeutic agent, such as chlorhexidine with that of H2O2 in the experimental gingivitis model showed that 0.12% CHX was an excellent broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent which significantly reduced the number of both facultative and obligate anaerobes in plaque.
The use of sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide in periodontal therapy: a review.
TLDR
Clinical research indicates that application by patients of sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide offers no advantage over the preestablished, properly performed home oral hygiene procedures, and professional application may be the crucial factor.
Salt and peroxide compared with conventional oral hygiene. I. Clinical results.
TLDR
Both conventional oral hygiene procedures and the S/P regimen were effective in reducing clinical signs of disease when combined with professional care and there were no differences between the two regimens in clinical effectiveness.
Functional Variation of the Antigen I/II Surface Protein in Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus intermedius
TLDR
The results indicate common and species-specific roles for the antigen I/II in mediating the attachment of S. mutans and S. intermedius to host components and in determining cell surface properties.
A microbiological and clinical study of the safety and efficacy of baking-soda dentifrices.
TLDR
The data from this study indicate that dentifrices containing high levels of baking soda are clinically effective and microbiologically safe.
Hydrogen peroxide: a review of its use in dentistry.
TLDR
In patients, prolonged use of hydrogen peroxide decreased plaque and gingivitis indices, however, therapeutic delivery of H2O2 to prevent periodontal disease required mechanical access to subgingival pockets, and wound healing following gingival surgery was enhanced due to the antimicrobial effects of topically administered hydrogenperoxide.

TLDR
Sodium bicarbonate may not be the "magic bullet" for curing dental diseases, but its safety (if ingested), low abrasivity, low cost, and compatibility with fluoride make it a consummate dentifrice ingredient.
