Question: Side effects of hydrogen peroxide as a debriding agent? I use hydrogen peroxide (3% concentration) as an oral debriding agent once a day. Will this have negative side effects on my teeth? Damage the enamel, etc?

Answer: No, you shouldn't have too much of a problem. If you use baking soda with that then you should limit the amount of hydrogen peroxide to about once a week. But if you use about 3% concentrated hydrogen peroxide, you should be fine, there should be no negative side affects and no damage to the enamel.
