Just Teeth

So when the specialist says "CLEAN YOUR TEETH" at least twice a day, use a good toothpaste and a strong brush.. do you realise the problem in that.?.. NO?... well; let me explain one little fact- Toothpaste is a mild abrasive, it is just like sandpaper- does exactly the same job- so every time you clean your teeth your eroding the enamel off your teeth- so two or three times a day seven days a week for mmmnn, lets say 25 years--- and the damage to the enamel is bad..! Who encourages you to clean with toothpaste.? the Dentist or the manufacturer.? Dentist want work, so never argue the values..!

once a day with a tiny little toothpaste is more than enough, I use just a toothbrush and water and every third day or so use a little paste.. The rest of the time, a good mouth wash does a job that prevents foul breath-

----FOR YOUR GENERAL INFORMATION----

Toothpaste is used by watchmakers and car windscreen repairers to remove scratches out of glass.!!

I've been doing that for years..

I used to "mess " with watches and there is no better substance than toothpaste to clean and remove scratches from Watch glass

I once watched a documentary about fluoride and I have never used a fluoride toothpaste since! I buy non-fluoride toothpaste these days!

Julie was also recommended the same. However, I watched a US documentary on how fluoride rots the the teeth! Weird or what? Many sates in the US have stopped putting it on the water as a result of the federal gov findings.

Hi, here is another interesting snippet about toothpaste you might not know. Check out the ingredients, if it has Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (check the other names it go under) give it a wide birth, one use is in industrial floor cleaning industry, it foams a lot, it thickens and it cheap, it's added to toothpaste, beauty products, shampoo, baby products even creams for dermatitis when they know it is a skin irritant. Here is just one link that will make you think twice about what you and your family use. Do a little research yourself. healthychoices.co.uk/sls.html
