I'm curious what people do for their oral care.

Brush/floss daily. Don't have an electric brush though. Plus bi-annual visits to the dentist for cleaning.

Only had one cavity in over 10 years. Also had to have a filling replaced a few years ago. 

They're always on me about smoking though. They know due to some sign the roof of my mouth has. I just nod and tell them I know all about it.


Cheers,

RR

Brush and floss twice a day whether I need to or not.

Also, I use a technique called oil pulling, using extra virgin coconut oil for 20 minutes twice a day right after brushing.

I also rinse with warm salt water for 30 seconds a couple times a day right after meals.

The idea is to keep the bacteria level in your mouth at a minimum, in order to fight gum disease. Both the coconut oil and warm salty water help to keep bacteria levels low.

I brush twice a day and have a water pic thingy in the shower called an Oral Breeze (I think) that uses the water pressure to provide some irrigation at the gums. I get them cleaned twice a year.

Before the Oral Breeze, the dentist would shake his head and wring hands about my gums. Now he says they look fine.

I tried the hair of the dog thing for a while, too, but found that toothpaste and mouthwash tend to leave me smelling fresher. lol!

Brush twice/day. Use both electric and "hand-powered" brushes. Typically use Arm & Hammer tpaste with baking soda and peroxide. Swish with hydrogen peroxide & aqua to kill more germs and take care of gums. Have teeth cleaned quarterly. cheers santa FTRPLT

Brush twice daily, floss 5-7 times per week. After smoking a pipe or cigar I'll do a quick brushing of the gums, tongue, roof (well...after a smoking "session," I guess. If I have a few bowls I don't do this between each one.), and a quick rinse with Biotene (or store-brand equivalent).

Cleaning at the dentist's office twice a year.


Been YEARS since I've had any dental problems (other than wisdom teeth removal a few years back, but not much to be done about that).

I'm a Biotene fan, and have seen the store brand equivalent for about half the price. In your opinion does it work as well?

In my opinion it does...doesn't taste as freshening, but it does what it's supposed to do and is a LOT less expensive. I usually use the CVS store brand.

Good to know, and thank you. I'll give it a try next time.

I have been rinsing my mouth out with hydrogen peroxide, brushing after every meal and using dental floss.
