Do I really need to floss?

For most of us, flossing is such a chore we tend to put off. For some people it is the last thing we think about doing on a daily basis. However, over time you will be doing more harm by not taking a few minutes out of the day to do a quick floss.I found this article that tells you the importance of flossing and what might happen to your teeth if you don't.It is something that can be done really anywhere anytime. Just make sure you try and floss once a day for long lasting healthy teeth!

Recipe For Homemade Toothpaste

For those of you who prefer Old Home-Style concoctions...and who would like to stay away from artificial and (in some cases) potentially unsafe ingredients that are added to commercially marketed products, here is a recipe I found while searching online for something homemade. Of all the recipes that I looked at, I liked this one best. Mix together: 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil, 3 tablespoons Baking Soda, 5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil, 5 drops Spearmint Essential Oil, a pinch of Stevia powder (as a sweetener). These are all completely natural ingredients and tasty too!

Here is a link to the web page where I found the recipe. It is an intersting blog site.

How clean is your toothbrush?

Ever wonder how clean your toothbrush is? Well I have. So I did a little research on it. I have always thought it was gross to share your toothbrush and now more so after I read this article 'what's on your toothbrush'.The mouth contains untold numbers of viruses and bacteria, and sharing a toothbrush can pass on anything from the common cold to hepatitis B. So think twice before using someone else's toothbrush.

Bottle rot: How to prevent it..

If you have ever had a baby you know how hard it can be to wing them from the bottle. Most pediatricians say at about one they should no longer be on the bottle and they should be using a sippy cup. A child's teeth are susceptible to decay if he’s always drinking a sugared drink from a bottle — formula, milk, or juice. You should also never but a baby in his crib with a bottle or sippy cup as the 'sugars' from what they are drinking just lay in their mouths as they sleep. That is what can form tooth decay or 'bottle rot'. You can read more about it here on the importance of getting your baby on a sippy cup and off the bottle.
