I am so curious about this.. how can baking soda help me to fight bad breath and maintain a good oral health?

It's very simple. Lay on your back with your mouth wide open. Have someone pour the box of baking soda into your mouth. Inhale deeply.

baking soda + hydrogen peroxide + peppermint essential oil when mixed creates a reasonable toothpaste. it's abrasive, seems to clean and the mint clears your breath. i use this.

you could also create a mild acidic reaction by taking Jungledoc's advice and then squeezing in some citrus juice, like lemon or lime, which will create a caustic reaction that'll give your teeth a good clean. it's just a salt and citrus.

I would recommend adding vinegar to the mouthful of baking soda, along with red food dye. That way you could turn your mouth into a toy volcano.
