  1. What an eye-opener! The only thing I knew and discovered recently was not rinsing. My dentist and hygienist where I’m now living told me to actually put toothpaste on my teeth after cleaning and leave it there take advantage of the fluoride, morning and night.

      1. if you are worried about fluoride being a poison then you shouldn’t use fluoridated toothpaste at all. and hopefully you live in an area that doesn’t add fluoride to the tap water.

      2. I hear you on the clenching, I do that too. I don’t eat much citrus but I do know that with highly acidic foods you should wait at least an hour before brushing your teeth. things like soda and citrus can soften your teeth so when you brush it scratches into the enamel causing them to hurt. Kelly, you could try the restoring mouthwash that really helps mine when it acts up. I believe it is made by Act but there may be others out now. and coconut oil works great for whitening. just put a little in your mouth let it melt and start swishing it around. do it as long as you can and spit it in the trash, don’t swallow or spit in the sink it can clog it over time. I noticed by accident after about a week that my teeth were whiter. It’s called oil pulling if you want to look up more info.

      3. I’m OK except for the usual age related aches and pains 🙂 I hope you are too. We’re heading into winter here, although the weather has been surprisingly mild thus far. Autumn and spring are my favourite seasons.
        On another note entirely, I try not to involve myself in controversial comments on blog posts. Broke my own rule! As soon as I hit send I regretted doing so here. My apologies.

      4. Your heading into winter??? It’s in 100’s here! Where are you??Are you speaking about the brushing?? Everyone has different opinions, what it comes down to is what works well for the individual, don’t you think? Thank you so much.

      5. I’m in Australia 🙂 Yes, I was referring to the brushing. I agree it’s an individual choice. I also know opinions about fluoride vary hugely and creates a lot of controversy.

      6. Bernice, if you are in Australia like I suspect or possibly New Zealand, at any rate a different country than the US. I’m curious do they add things to your water there. here in some states they add fluoride to the water mostly in urban areas they also add chlorine. I’m in the country and I once called city hall to see if they add that to our water, the town I’m in runs off well water. I was wanting to try to make sourdough bread and needed to know if I should buy bottle water. I was told they didn’t and the bread came out great.

      7. Kelley, sounds like you got me mixed up with Bernice. I’m Raili – the one in Australia who has stayed put in the same house, in the same city since 1973 🙂
        ldybugsrus, unfortunately they do add fluoride and chlorine into the water here in South Australia and some other states. Not sure about all of them. I use rainwater until our tanks run dry when I have no option but to switch to mains. We also filter our drinking and cooking water.

  3. These are awesome, some were a surprise. The only one I will disagree with is not rinsing the toothpaste. I’ve practiced dental hygiene for over 22 years, ALWAYS rinse the toothpaste out!

    1. I complained of sensitive 25 years ago and the dentist told me to not rinse after brushing and for the most part I haven’t had a problem since. if you don’t have issues with your teeth then there is no reason you need to leave it there.

      1. I’m sure he had a valid reason for giving that recommendation, though I usually tell patients with sensitivity to use a mild or sensitive toothpaste. No whitening, baking soda, tarter control toothpastes and a soft or extra soft toothbrush. I also review diet changes and oral habits that may be the cause. That usually takes care of the issue after a few weeks if the damage to the teeth is mild. If the damage is severe, the sensitivity may never go away completely. But swallowing toothpaste isn’t recommended.

      2. oh no I never swallow always spit. just leave the residue from brushing. it doesn’t matter if I use sensodyne or normal my teeth are still sensitive. I was told to avoid extreme temperatures. Cold like ice cream can make my teeth hurt for a half an hour and coffee unless I add ice will blister my mouth and that is homemade coffee in an electric machine not like fast food coffee

      3. I know how you feel…I clench and grind when I’m stressed. Drinking tap water hurts when I have a sensitivity flare up. I also love oranges and lemons. I have to be careful! I would love to whiten my teeth, but I tried it once and was miserable for a few days. ACT fluoride rinse works for me! You have to find what works and if leaving the residue works for you keep doing that! Hugs!

      4. Brushing and flossing removes plaque. Rinsing with mouthwash will help with gingivitis and inhibiting bacterial growth.( Like applying bacitracin to a cut after you clean it.) I usually personalize the mouthwash recommendation depending on the patient’s history and what it’s needed for. General use mouthwash, I always recommend Listerine and there is an alcohol free Listerine Total Care for those that need that. The purple Listerine has added fluoride for those with sensitive teeth or are cavity prone. If you want to try whitening, try the Crest White strips. Try the kind that takes the longest, the 3 day white might cause some sensitivity. Follow the directions and be consistent, and you’ll see results. If you use a sensitivity toothpaste while you are bleaching, it helps with sensitivity.

    2. because there aren’t any other than pull up and pull down. I found an interesting article about it there were several patents on them. personally I never use them to sit on. they usually half fall in or they stick to a damp spot on the seat. I take one out wad it up wipe off the seat and sit and tinkle. I have never gotten a disease, and I no longer sit on damp spots LOL
