How Clean Is Your Brush?

Brushing teeth

Most of us wouldn't clean our dishes or kitchen surfaces with a dirty bacteria laden cloth. But for some reason many of us don't seem to think the same way about our toothbrushes! Instead, we're cleaning our teeth with a dirty brush.

Part of the reason manufacturers recommend replacing our brush so often is to prevent bacteria build-up (and making more money out of us too of course!). Do we really need to change our brush so often though? If it's not worn out why replace it - why not just clean it better!?

Do We Really Need Dentists...

I know some of us don't like going, but do we really need dentists after all..?

Dental Insurance? We got mountain dew for mouthwash, and a pair of pliers - we don't need no insurance!

I think the answer is a resounding 'yes'!

What You Need to Know About Dental Implants

Example of Dental Implants

If you have one or more missing teeth, your dentist may suggest dental implants instead of dentures. But just what are dental implants? Well, these are a permanent form of replacement that many have found useful since the industry began to use them. If you want something that can never fall out of your mouth when you are talking or eating, you want to learn more about implants as a viable alternative treatment.

These look and function just like real teeth in your mouth. In fact, there is no way for someone who is just looking at you to know that you have implants unless they know that you had a gap in your teeth before. In fact, this is one of the many reasons that so many people have chosen to get implants to replace their missing teeth.
