The other day I watched a programme called ‘The truth about your teeth’ and they revealed some new information that I feel I should share with all of you!
Apparently, there is teeth cleaning ettiquet!
and I have been doing it wrong all of my life!
Apart from making sure you brush each and every one of your teeth to aid even cleaning, you must also NEVER clean your teeth after Breakfast or rinse out your mouth with water!….
I know I know! why were we not told this before…like at birth!
You see you have to think of your teeth as if they were a Brand spanking new Ferrari car bonnet (your favourite car choice can be added here if you wish!)
When you eat food, it has an effect on your teeth much similar to acid being thrown onto a car bonnet…
So now go and clean your teeth with a brush! which is similar to scrubbing the car bonnet with a brush…what happens? Yes you are taking all the paint work off of the car….and thus taking some of the enamel from your teeth!
STOP THIS BEHAVIOUR NOW!!!
….AND brush your teeth in the morning as soon as you get up…!
The Fluoride in the toothpaste not only cleans, but also helps protect your teeth from bad acids in your food!,,,AND
NEVER NEVER rinse your mouth out with water after you have brushed, as this also rinses away all of the fluoride, that protects your teeth when eating through the day …!
…and see a better result in your teeth Hygiene.

Bye for now my lovelies xx
