Just a quick word about toothbrushing and toothbrushes, which I know is everyone's favorite topic. Before you enjoy your weekend, remember to take a quick look at your toothbrush. If the bristles are frayed or if it's been 3-4 months since you've gotten a new brush, it might be time to replace it. And if you've been sick recently with a cold, flu, mouth infection or sore throat, toss that old brush and get a new one! Look for "soft bristles" and a smaller brush head so you can get to those hard-to-reach places. Try brushing in a gentle circling motion around the teeth and gums to help massage them to health and always remember to buy toothpaste with fluoride for strong, healthy teeth.
