Is it normal to be obsessed with brushing my teeth with baking soda
The sensation of taking a heap of the dry, salty powder and brushing it on my teeth as dry as possible is a sensation I seem to crave just about daily. Even better is having an electric toothbrush and going to town brushing my tongue, as far back as I can bear. I actually genuinely enjoy how abrasive it is and it’s purely a mouth-feel thing that’s appealing to me. It also has to be a good brand like Arm and Hammer or something, because others are either so finely ground it falls out of the toothbrush or are tasteless so aren’t as appealing. I know it can’t be the greatest for my teeth so I follow it with regular toothpaste in the hopes that maybe the enamel strengthening properties will help. I’m considering only brushing my tongue if it’s too harmful.
It’s an everyday thing for me now. Just enjoying the feel of something dry and abrasive being brushed on my tongue. I’m guessing it’s not normal?
