I don't know about you, but the old fashioned toothbrush and floss are my go-to when I need to clean my teeth. Now that we live in the age of social media, people see one trend on TikTok and think they should be doing it as well.
People on TikTok claim you can get your teeth a lot whiter if you scrub them with Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. Some lady who thinks fluoride is dumb recently told people she's been doing it for a while, and that it's fine as long as you don't let it touch your gums. She says she hasn't asked her dentist about it, but they always say her teeth look great. So it must be fine.
A study in PubMed.com in 2015 actually found Magic Erasers CAN remove stains from your teeth, but most experts say it's NOT something to try. One dentist talked about it on YouTube and said it's like scrubbing your teeth with really fine sandpaper. So if her teeth look white, it might be because she stripped all the enamel off.
I don't know about you, but I think I'll stick to the old fashioned toothbrush and floss as my go-to when I need to clean my teeth.
