Peroxide Teeth Whitening – How To Brush My Dog’s Teeth

One of the things that most dog owners do not do but should is brush their dog’s teeth. Just like your own having clean and healthy teeth is one of the keys to long term health. When the teeth are not cleaned on regular basis plaque can build up which causes the gums to recede. This can make eating painful and result in future teeth loss (not to mention ‘doggy breath’). The health problems associated with dirty teeth go far beyond the teeth themselves however. Teeth that are not cleaned on a regular basis (2 – 3 times a week) are breeding grounds for bacteria and disease. This can put tremendous pressure on your dog’s immune system and internal organs which leads to premature aging. Older dogs are especially susceptible to these issues particularly with regards to heart disease. Continue reading…

Hydrogen Peroxide Teeth Whitening

Hydrogen Peroxide is a highly reactive chemical made of hydrogen and oxygen. This chemical is widely used to bleach paper and textile, and is used as a disinfectant in the medical field and in the household and is also the main ingredient used to whiten your teeth. Normal concentrations are around 3% and can go as high as 10%. In general, the more peroxide, the greater the whitening power.

The Side Effects

Because Hydrogen peroxide is such a highly reactive chemical the two most common side effects are mouth and gum irritation plus increased tooth sensitivity to temperature changes, however both effects are temporary. Hydrogen peroxide works so well because it can easily pass through your teeth enamel and begin interacting with the dentine and pulp part of your tooth. Studies have shown that this does not harm or effect the enamel part of your tooth and is considered safe by the ADA. Continue reading…
