I had another dentist appointment yesterday afternoon. That one was just for a check up and cleaning.
Last year I had crowns put on a couple of teeth and had treatments for gum disease.
Gum disease can sneak up on you if you are not paying attention and taking care of your teeth.
I had not been flossing on a regular basis and sometimes only brushed my teeth once a day. So I ended up having cavities and gum disease.
So take it from me. It is definitely worth the time and effort to brush and floss. Unless of course you want to lose some or all your teeth before you are even 50.
Those treatments cost quite a bit and you have to have them every three months for a while. They also give you some mouthwash type stuff you have to use for a while that kills bacteria in your mouth. That is in addition to the brushing at least twice a day.
I have been doing much better and the dentist says the bone around my teeth seems to have fully recovered and I did NOT have any problems this time around.
Except a possible loose crown. I have to go back in a month and have that checked.
If my teeth had better care in the beginning so many of them wouldn’t have crowns which cost about $1000 bucks each and the ones that are missing would still be there.
So let this be a lesson to you! Take care of your teeth!
BrytonPick Floss in seconds provides oral hygiene in a pinch. That’s what the brochure says. I really liked that idea and the picture of it.
I thought it looked really neat and useful. That’s why I asked to review this product. I am always needing toothpicks after eating out at a restaurant or in the car. I liked the idea of having a reusable toothpick on hand that also acts as a floss. These have metal ends that you can reuse for 30 days. They are also U.S. made from recyclable materials.
I really like that you don’t have to throw them away after one use. I have been carrying mine in my purse for a few days. I like being able to just reach in there and grab it and use it to get stuff from between my teeth. You do have to be careful with them or you can cut your gums. Doing that just before a meeting really sucks. They do tell you to use it in front of a mirror the first time. That is a really good idea.
There is a video on their site that shows how BrytonPick works. These do make cleaning between your teeth easier and much more convenient. You can do it anywhere. A list of stores where you can buy them is on the top of their website too. You can get them online as well as in many drugstores.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
