You’ve seen the adverts, read the book and bought the products in Leeds- so there should be no excuse for failing to look after your teeth. Of course, if you like the more wayward lifestyle, you will have to work extra hard to look after your teeth…but the products are there if you care to use them and over the years, they have come on incredibly so there is something there for everyone. Toothpastes- plaque, gum disease, whitening…it’s all there for you and when it comes to the brushes themselves, there is a fantastic choice between electric and the old manual ones- both work well if you use them correctly and can offer salvation to your mouth. Back this up with dental floss, inter-dental brushing and a fine mouthwash and you may well be putting dentists out of a job; of course, before you get too sure of yourself and think that you can ‘sack’ your dentist, bear one thing in mind: if you don’t have a digital imaging machine at home and the gall to drill your own teeth and fill them when anything goes wrong, you will need your dentist as a back-up when you’ve taken your eye off the game and let in evils such as gum disease and tooth decay. Also, a dentist is the finest person to ask about caring for your teeth as well.
