  • I don't see why not. But I would water it down a bit. Lemon juice has alot of acid and is not healthy for teeth or gums.

  • It's not good for your teeth. It softens them. So I'd steer clear of it

  • It's not good for the enamel of anyones teeth! I'd think a babies teeth would be more sensitive because they aren't fully developed.
