Everyone Loves Power Tools

Since most people don’t make a habit of flossing ,or they find it really hard to get their fingers to swing the floss between the teeth just the right way…why not try a power tool?  I have found the Water Pik is awesome for power washing between the teeth.  You will be surprised at how much food is left between the teeth even after brushing. Most times water is fine, but some people like to water pik with listerine. Be sure to only point the nozzle between the teeth  and not down into the gums. And oh yea don’t point it toward your mirror or you will have a big mess…this is the voice of experience!  Water piks are cheap, around  $35.00 at the WalMart or Target and it will save you alot of expensive visits to my office. Next time stay tuned to learn about nature’s famous botanical toothache wonders. 


Best way to save money on your teeth

They say 90% of all people don”t floss their their teeth on a regular basis. And according to studies,most people know that they should! The fact is when we brush our teeth every day,there is still plaque between our teeth that the toothbrush can not clean. Some people honestly do not have the manual dexterity to manuver the floss between their teeth….so I suggest to you that something is better than nothing.  I recommend to you that a toothpick,a proxy brush(kind of a fancy pipe cleaner) or a flossing aide with a handle can be just as good. Stay tuned next week for my next post and I will tell you the number one  aide that will save your gums and teeth and keep me out of business.
