So today let's discuss how you brush your teeth; do you use a normal or an electric toothbrush and do you start with the front teeth or the back teeth ?

I have an electric toothbrush, I start at the bottom right, then bottom left, then upper right, then upper left, then upper front, then bottom front. Then I spit it out and suddenly my teeth are clean. Absolute magic.....

I drink tons of Diet Pepsi, brush about 5 times a day with an Oral-B electric. Start at the back left fronts, move around to the back right fronts, then the back right backs, to the left back backs. Now I'll give 2 bucks to whoever can decipher what I just said.

Quoting NeilYYZ (Reply 3):
about 5 times a day

I thought it was recommended not to exceed brushing twice a day

I use a normal toothbrush and wet the brush first before applying the toothpaste

Normal toothbrush, brush my teeth 2 to 3 times a day (if I'm home at noon, I'll brush. Otherwise, not).

Start with the side.

Cheers,

It can't be Friday without a Friday stupid thread.

I use a regular tooth brush and start from the front. Brush in the morning before leaving the house and sometimes at night before bed depending on the meal.

I use a normal toothbrush. Tried an electric one, but other than the fact that it increased my electricity bill, it wasn't any cleaner than when done with a regular one. Usually brush twice per day, rarely ever three times, front to back to front.

I have OCD. I brush teeth about 5x daily. I floss about 3x daily. I keep floss in my carry on luggage, I fly often with my company, I keep floss in the console of the M car, and I keep floss next to my desktop.

I read flossing regularly will add 1.5 years to your life. I've never had a cavity in my entire life. I use a paste with whitener and baking soda. My toothbrush is electric and I replace the batteries monthly, regardless of their ware.

I am sad; this I know.  yes   santahat

But I have two factors that weigh heavily on my decision to brush 5 times a day.

1) I drink 12 Diet Pepsi at least every day, yesterday was 15 (I keep the cans until the end of every day and then recycle them)

2) I am a Dental hygiene freak, good teeth are important to me.

Well, maybe if you cut down on the brown sugar water, you wouldn't have to worry about your teeth so much  Wink .

The day I get my first cavity I'll do just that. Until then bring on the brown sugar water!  Wink

But the real question:

does brushing your teeth really erode your teeth or not? You know that the outer layer that keeps your teeth toegether (enamel, or émail) isn't thicker than 2 millimeter on the sides. Eroding that and u can kiss them goodbye.

I am somewhat familiar, as I also have an oral-B, it buzzes every thirty seconds and does a long buzz after two minutes. I tend to split my brushing in no particular order to lower fronts, lower backs (and lower molars tops), upper backs (and upper molars tops), and upper fronts.

I only brush twice a day and my dentist (who is also my brother in law) said I was doing a good job at it  Smile 5 times a day seems a bit OTT!

I have a manual brush.

I use a paste with whitener and baking soda.

I brush in the shower (water from shower head acts as a water pick  Wink )in the AM and over the sink in PM.

I need to floss more.

I use a mouthwash with a plaque remover.

lol penny-pincher are we not, DAL?!

I use an electric one recommended by my dentist, and it looks like it helps control bacteria better ; then I gargle with listerine and it really gives a fresh mouth feel.



Take off and live
