This was a Good Question the other night and I thought it was kind of interesting. There were a couple of things I didn’t know.
First of all I had no idea that there were 352 distinct types or sizes of toothpaste currently on the market. Can you even imagine? Now that I think about it, there is one WHOLE isle at Walmart and Target with tooth products. Whether they be toothpaste, mouth wash, all the flossing stuff and all the toothbrushes. If you had no idea what you were looking for, you could be there for days! When my mom was going through her chemo they told us a mouth wash to use that might help take that icky taste out of her mouth and it took me a long time to find it.
It really does make sense to me that no toothpaste will make your teeth white but they will help keep them white if you have them cleaned regularly and it won’t take tartar away but will help keep it away if you go to the dentist regularly. It almost does seem like false advertising doesn’t it though?
All this plus on our photo of the day challenge last week one of the words were “toothbrush” and it was kind of fun to see what everyone used.
So what about you? What kind of toothbrush do you use? Toothpaste? Do you use mouthwash? Do you floss? Do you get lost in the tooth isle? Do you go to the dentist regularly?
