Foamy

by Alison

Self.com has an article that I mostly agree with about oral hygiene. You can check it out with this link. http://www.self.com/wellness/health/2015/12/ways-brushing-your-teeth-wrong/

As both of my readers will certainly know I do not agree with their assertion that people should floss. Uncle John, and Aunt Carol both know that in our office we recommend tooth picks over floss.

I particularly like the beige one in the middle and the red one on the far right. I believe these designs have shields to keep toothpaste in the mouth and not spraying all over the bathroom.  This made me think of a rule of thumb with tooth brushing that I have probably not shared with you both.  If the bathroom mirror and sink are not a mess with toothpaste or toothpaste foam after you have brushed you are probably not brushing vigorously enough or for long enough.
