I thought Colgate Total was different as it contained Triclosan. But i think other toothpastes have this too.

Big difference.. Sensodyne Repair and Protect has a bioglass compound called Novamin that actually bonds with the enamel and gives it an extra coating that fortifies teeth enamel. It is the only compound and toothpaste that actually repairs or fortified your enamel.

I know a new compound called Biomin has come out which is a superior version of Novamin, but it is only available in the UK for now.

Edit: correction: Bioglass is not the only compound that repairs your enamel. But it is the best or among the best there is. Also available over the counter so you don't need some expensive prescription toothpaste.

Novamin (a type of bioglass) was invented by a scientist and Sensodyne bought out his research, so to my knowledge Sensodyne Repair and Protect (non US version) is the only off the shelf toothpaste that has Novamin.

For some reason, the version in the US does not have Novamin. If you want to buy the Novamin version in the US, buy it from Amazon here:

It takes a few weeks to ship from the UK. But the price is reasonable: $6.60 and free shipping.

u/merinosweater · 197 pointsr/bestof

edit - Looks like there's been some confusion. Americans, you can buy some from NK Supplies - direct from UK on Amazon or direct-pharmacy (Item Location: Birmingham, United Kingdom) on eBay.

Scroll down on the Amazon link to find the UK vendor for $7.87 + free shipping. Also, please look into using to donate to a charity of your choice! Slightly more expensive Amazon link if you don't want to scroll down.

To use - Apply a very thin layer of the toothpaste on your toothbrush. Slightly wet with water. Brush your teeth. Using your tongue and mouth suction, push the toothpaste between each tooth for 3-5 minutes. Do not swallow the toothpaste. Spit it out as best as you can. Do not rinse out with water. Avoid eating and drinking for 30 minutes.

u/no_sight · 95 pointsr/Frugal

The replacement heads are relatively cheap. It's cheaper to replace a warn out head than the whole toothbrush. And it's frugal to spend a little more on a better toothbrush to avoid dental bills. Oral B is only $40 on Amazon I've had mine for years

or your tongue. tongue cleaner baby.

u/nssdrone · 74 pointsr/LifeProTips

Highly recommend Dr Tungs Tongue Cleaner

Dear lord it's disgusting how much stuff comes off my tongue. And if you smell the stuff you just scraped, you will know forever that you never want that stuff in your mouth. Same with smelling your floss after using it.

u/HavocReigns · 70 pointsr/starterpacks

Tongue scraper. I tried several before landing on this one. It's stainless steel, it'll last virtually forever.

First couple of times you use it will gross you out realizing how much bacteria you had growing on your tongue.

Then, I always rinse with Smart Mouth mouthwash after flossing, tongue scraping and brushing. You can buy it anywhere, grocery store, WalMart, Target, etc. This is the best mouthwash I've found, I never have morning breath since I started using it. I wish it still came in two bottles that you mix, because their new "all-in-one" bottle sucks. But it is what it is.

u/Artiemas · 51 pointsr/technology

Nah man/woman I promise you, as someone who is almost self conscious about how casual he is with his dental care, spend the $30-40 to buy one of the Philips that has the 2 minute timer and pressure sensor to tell you when you brush too hard.

Life. Changing. The first time it feels like you just stood there brushing for ten minutes but ooooh boy run that little mouth muscle over dem bones and you'll want to kiss yourself in the mirror. There is literally no feeling of left over plaque. Especially behind the teeth. Love it, man. I told myself Id never get one till like 3-4 months ago and Im disappointed I let my teeth get to the point they are now when Ive had some serious pretty pearls prior with zero cavaties and strong enamel. A habit of brushing what could only average to 4 times a week at the peak, and brushing fast and hard to just get it over with (heavy hand wears down enamel faster) ended my shiny teeth and me quick. Yikes.


Girlfriend has this one and its just as nice as my Philips 5100. Little cheaper, too. Heads are cheap, too! Take care of the one outward bone bois pls, they cannot care for themselves. Theyre like little gold dubloons in your head. I hope you take heed. Godspeed

u/Masaioh · 37 pointsr/internetparents

Might want to go to a dentist and ask about mouthwash. Mine discouraged me from using it.

Brush and floss twice per day, once in the morning before you go outside and once before you go to bed.

Make sure to use soft toothbrushes. The softest you can find. Don't push too hard or you can damage your gums.

If you have trouble reaching into the back of your mouth to floss your molars, get one of these.

EDIT: One more thing, if you find that your teeth are really sensitive, especially when you eat cold food, try switching to sensodyne toothpaste or whatever the equivalent brand is where you live. I've been using it for 8 years now.

u/partisan98 · 36 pointsr/starterpacks

Not really OP is underestimating you are overestimating.

The $24 Philips Sonicare Essence is a great toothbrush (4/5 stars with 8,137 reviews) but it is an older version so its very bulky.

The $50 Oral-B Black Pro 1000 is the newer style that is slim works great (4.5 stars with 4,322 reviews) and can accept any style of Oral B head including the plaque bristle ones.

The expensive ones just add built in timers, More LEDs, a sexier stand and some are bluetooth capable and sync with your phone (which i guess is nice if you got kids and want to verify they are brushing)

Here in the Netherlands they are available in supermarkets. They have advertisments on TV promoting it (so it's not seen as a medical product at all, for which it's illegal to advertise here).

I don't know if they are particularly popular, but they are somewhat well known. I've heard two people say it helped and nobody that it didn't, but that's more anecdotal evidence (after all, it's a sample of 2 and there are people who think homeopathics work so you can't even trust those 2).

Edit: this toothpaste with Novamin can be bought in the US on Amazon (just make sure to pick a seller that ships from the EU).

Okay, you know those makeup removal wipes that look like baby wipes? You're a boy so you probably don't, but you need to familiarize yourself as fuck, yo.

Because those motherfuckers will make your junk smell like cucumber melon magic and clean any grode off your chode if you don't have time to catch a shower before or after. They're safe for mucous membranes (around eyes, lips, pits, glans and vulvas) and leave no residue. They're cheap and you can toss them right in the trash -don't flush them.
So! My advice to all ladies and gents who have quickies, hookups, or overnight guests is to buy some makeup removal wipe packs and keep them somewhere visible for you and your conquest guests.

Everyone who's had a quickie knows the pain of leaving sticky, and some of [these] ( will clean traces off your faces and places.

I went last year for the first time since about 2002. To put it lightly, I was scared.

It turns out that my fear of dentists for the previous 16 years was a solid and effective motivator for me to take very good care of my teeth. No cavities. I waited until AFTER the cleaning to tell them how long it had been, and they said it looked like I had been getting cleanings every 6 months. Now, whenever I go in every 6 months, they tell me I consistently have the cleanest teeth of any of their clients (maybe they are lying to make me feel good).

My regimen for the last 17 years:

u/hmspain · 16 pointsr/aspergers

One result of my poor hygiene was a really persistent case of bad breath. All through grammar school, all through high school and college, even when I was brushing twice a day the problem remained.

It made it tough to be around me. Brave (or pissed) people would tell me about it, but I had no idea what to do. Mouth washes didn’t work. Brushing longer didn’t work.

The solution? Simple… a tongue scraper. Twice a day, ten strokes after brushing. The first time you do this, try not to look :-).


My life would have been so different if I had known this.

u/uiucmike · 16 pointsr/UIUC

wow thx <3 <3 <3

But honestly, literally anyone can be attractive. If that's a major roadblock for you to improve your social skills, do soemthing about it; give yourself a makeover! Following is subjective, I guess, but..

Get a good haircut. 90% of the time, that just means "short on the sides, longer on top". LookAfter on green is really good. You could probably just be like "yo hook me up" and they can give you something trendy. Put this in your hair. Shower in the morning, and blowdry it instead of letting it air dry.

Revamp your wardrobe. Get tighter clothes. A pair of these will get you far. If you can button them without causing lots of physical pain to yourself, they aren't too tight (and they will stretch). Try to avoid washing jeans in the washing machine. If you do, air dry them. If your jeans fit well, chances are they won't after you run them through the dryer.

Stay away from gym shoes. A pair of black and a pair of white vans will take you a long way.

Stay away from overusing graphic tees. Grey is a great colour that looks good on everyone. Black and other dark colours are good too. Sweatshirts usually look p good as long as they are a tight fit. Henleys are easy and lit too.

Stay away from cargo shorts. Tight, coloured, mid-thigh shorts are "in" and look better. Looser but still short & thin neutral-coloured shorts are ez too. Especially for spring/summer.

Most of the stuff from Express, H&M, Zara, sometimes A&F, etc. is good.

Qt, bold briefs/boxer briefs from calvin klein, aussiebum, etc. are lit too. People won't often see them, obviously, but it's an easy confidence boost.

Don't discount the importance of being confident. Milo Yiannopoulos isn't actually that attractive, but he is 110% confident, so he tricks you into adding like 4 points. Fix your posture. Sit up straight, stand up straight w/ your shoulders back. Your body will feel better, and you will come off much more confident. Body language is important. The same is true about smiling more, etc.

Take care of your teeth. Crest Whitestrips can save your life if you are a soda/coffee drinker. Floss twice a day, maybe get a tongue brush.

Keep your body hair under control with one of these and a decent razer. Another thing that people only will see if you wear like a real deep v-neck or unbuttoned Henley or when you are sexing, but a confidence booster nonetheless.

Keep your hygiene up to par. Shower often, wash thoroughly (a loofah or washcloth is a good investment) with some kind of good-smelling body wash, wear deodorant, and get some kind of cologne that isn't axe (one of the < $30 ones from Amazon is fine). Also, idk why straight boys often don't wash their butthole, but wash your butthole.

Take care of your skin. This will save your life. If you have acne and that doesn't work well enough, invest in a proactiv subscription or something. You will look and feel much better. Don't be afraid of concealer to cover up some particularly egregious blemishes. Idk anything about makeup brands, but something like this (except that matches your skin tone) is great because it doubles as a mild acne treatment. This (or any spray product with Salicylic acid) will help immensely if you have body acne.

Get in shape. You will look and feel better! You sound like you don't have much time to go to the gym, which is fine. Muscly, skinny and toned, or super skinny are all "trendy" looks. Just avoid dad bod. Skinny can be achieved just through diet and optionally doing body weight exercises at home (crunches, pushups, etc.) or getting a pair of weights. Most importantly, make sure the fit of your clothes matches your body. All of those 3 benefit from snug fits. Dad bod "benefits" from a looser fit, but that's because your clothes are trying to hide your body shape rather than accentuate it, hence why it isn't ideal.

Before interviews/career/fairs/going on a date/whatever other important event, max all this out. Aside from looking good, you will feel good, and you will have a much easier time being confident. When talking to recruiters, especially during the interview, I find that when you feel good about yourself, nerves dissipate hardcore to the point where even when you are stuck, you don't really get that sinking feeling in your stomach. Smile and nod a lot, sell yourself with your strong, confident energy. If you seem like a fun person to work with (and look at), that can make up for a lot of your "faults".

I got all of my interviews that I got at the Expo this year wearing shorts and flip-flops (went during lunch break at work, so didn't have time to change). Just be a chill, happy, and humble dude/dudette, but own the fact that you feel good about yourself. Ppl dig that, especially when a lot of kids are in the same situation you are (ie. don't feel attractive or comfortable talking to people, or their whole life is just academics).

Edit: Oops also do your eyebrows and keep your facial hair in check.

u/ABA477 · 14 pointsr/WTF

If you haven't already, please go see an ENT for an evaluation of the abnormal size and shape of your palatine tonsil. There could be something serious going on here. Is the other one like that too? Go ahead and buy a tongue scraper, it may not be the main cause of your halitosis, but it is surely a contributing factor. I recommend this one:

EDIT: Hey OP, Send me your addy and I'll send you one

u/nehmia · 14 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

I just ran into this issue last week. The past two months I have had a bad sinus infection and what felt like throat colds. So for awhile there I had horrible phlegm and nastiness. Well I finally got over all that and noticed I had a horrible taste in my mouth that would never go away. Normally I would cough out a tonsil stone once every few months, but after the last two months apparently I "grew" a whole crap ton of them in/behind my left tonsil. So I used a waterpik set to 5 (medium) with this tip. I then "cupped" my tonsil with that tip carefully and let water pulse behind the tonsil where the crypts are. I had like... no joke, 10 tonsil stones come out. It was gross but so relieving. After, I rinsed with a peroxide mouth wash since it kills all the bacteria in the back of the throat better than regular alcohol based rinses. I literally slept better that night, and the next morning had a MUCH better taste in my mouth. However that same morning I still felt something in my tonsil, and did the same process and 5 more small stones came out... so good. It's been a week and I have been doing my normal routine brush/floss/scrape/rinse and have yet to have an issue.

edit: As for recommendations to go to the Dr/ENT... by all means please do that before you do something you are unsure of and may cause you harm. I have read about people trying the waterpik method and rupturing their tonsils and worse case getting an infection. I made the decision to slowly use the waterpik at it's lowest setting and when I reached 5 on the model linked above, it was soft enough to not cause any damage, but enough to "knock" out the tonsil stones. Also, I used that tongue scraper tip as it disperses the water into a spray instead of a jet stream. Last, as a cheaper alternative you can use one of these.

TL;DR use a waterpik at medium setting with tongue washer tip to irrigate tonsil crypts then rinse with peroxide based mouth wash after until tonsil stones are gone.

u/Sunsparc · 14 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

I have to order my Sensodyne from the UK for this very reason. I have weak enamel and regular Sensodyne wasn't doing anything. Someone in another reddit post mentioned you can order it from Amazon UK so I did.

It's like $6 a tube, but worth it.

EDIT: Here's the link. It's not Amazon.UK but it ships from the UK for $6.60 free shipping.

u/hak8or · 13 pointsr/LifeProTips

Could always use a water pik instead. My dentist said that they are absolutely wonderful, and if you were to not floss at all, they do a world of good. She even said that they are better than actually flossing, though I am somewhat dubios of that claim. They are very good though for people who have braces, very delicate gums/teeth, and arthritis.

That is mine, and it is wonderful. Somewhat messy at first, but better once you get the hang of it. The tank is just enough for a full mouth wash, and the pressure at "6" is totally sufficient for me, though it goes all the way up to ten.

At worst, if you buy it and don't use it for flossing, it is more than adequate for cleaning pieces of metal or just in general small precision cleaning.

u/robotparker · 13 pointsr/bestof

just a heads up: the toothpaste at the other end of your Amazon link doesn't contain NovaMin, but this one does.

u/cerwytha · 11 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

I have white spots on my front teeth from braces as well, and finally got an answer from the last dentist I saw that they're demineralized spots, and if they don't develop further then they can remineralize but unless they do they'll be more likely to develop cavities.

I bought a remineralizing paste from my dentist with fluoride and hydroxy apatite in it, which helps remineralize the spots, and have been using it as a spot treatment. After some research into it I also bought a remineralization toothpaste off of Amazon, it's from Japan because it's not sold in the US but it's got the same effect as the paste. I've been using this for a few weeks now, and the white spots on my teeth have gotten a lot less noticeable.

You might still have issues with your teeth and this might not totally get rid of the spots, but I would highly recommend trying the toothpaste for a few months and seeing if that helps before looking at veneers. I feel like remineralization is not something that dentists in the US tend to look at other than fluoride, which isn't as effective as hydroxy apatite, but it's worth looking into.

I've had issues with plaque build-up but last check up my dentist said that I was doing great! The toothbrush is really fantastic--the timer, carrying case and wireless charger--really make it worthwhile especially at that price.

u/Pigmy · 10 pointsr/funny

Because no one has mentioned it and several people are like "LOL flossing" allow me to introduce you to the water pik.

Get one, use it when you brush. Hell I use it after nearly every meal because there is just so much stuff that you wouldnt think gets stuck that brushing alone wont get. If you arent flossing regularly you are probably half assing it anyway when you do.

u/kodat · 9 pointsr/LifeProTips

Don't brush it, all your doing is moving gunk around but not out. Instead use a Tongue Scraper or something similar to this. Awesome product and you will see all the crap it removes.

u/smallwhitegirl · 8 pointsr/sex

most of the bad breath smell actually comes from the tongue! do you ever notice a white/grey film on the back of his tongue? I would recommend getting a tongue scraper and recommending both of you try it at the same time (it can have a kind of unpleasant gag reflex when you first try it) so maybe having both of you do it together won't make it seem like its just his problem. I have noticed a huge difference in my breath because I was self conscious of it. You can do a test by licking a spoon and smelling the spoon, if its bad your tongue probably needs some TLC. I recommend this one

u/LifeOfTheUnparty · 8 pointsr/fountainpens

I actually use a syringe leftover from when I got my wisdom teeth removed. It's narrow enough to work and doesn't look like you're using drugs. It's called a Dental Syringe.

u/Hypoglybetic · 8 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Buy a water pick. Seriously. The floss only moves the stuck on things. Whereas a water pick will blast away the particles. I had some food sitting on top of an impacted molar and flossed. The floss would go right by and through the gunk. You have no idea of the horrors hiding in your mouth. I own this

u/Aari_G · 8 pointsr/vancouver

There's floss holders you can get on amazon where you just wrap your floss around it. So you can reuse the stick! And it's really sturdy too.

u/StormKingTea · 8 pointsr/tea

If you rinse your mouth, or drink water after drinking tea this helps.

Brushing is even better than rinsing.

Drinking tea faster, and rinsing or brushing sooner (rather than later) after drinking tea minimizes the time the tannins are exposed to the teeth and mitigates staining.

Drink green or white tea, like you said.

Use a peroxide based pre-brush whitening rinse if your dentist says it's OK for you to do so.

Use an Oral-B electric toothbrush like this one if your dentist agrees (

PSA: if they're a frequent problem, buy a water-pik. I have this one from Amazon and it's by far some of the best $60 I've ever spent. Every time I taste the "taste," I just blast those fuckers out with the hose. So much satisfaction, and they're less of a problem now that I rinse the crypts regularly. Even better is blasting them with mouth wash, but that can make it a little more expensive.

u/OMADer2762 · 7 pointsr/omad

Your bad breath could have a few causes.

Dry mouth from slight dehydration or from ketones because you're dipping into ketosis between meals. Drink more water firstly and I think gum or sugar free mints are fine - sometimes we over think things and get lost in the details.

I highly recommend a tongue scraper for general oral hygiene and maybe give this mouthwash
and toothpaste a try. Something like this may be helpful for dry mouth that comes along with fasting/ketone breath.

u/good_guy_submitter · 6 pointsr/The_Donald

Be careful with Listerine.

Many of their mouthwash contain Phosphoric acid, Citric acid, or Benzoic acid. Generally speaking you do not want to use ANY mouthwash that contains ANY type of acid. ACID is the death of your teeth. Avoid mouthwash that has acid in it.

If you go to Target or Walmart you'll have to DIG to find a mouthwash that doesn't have acid in it.

  • The only mouthwash I can recommend is Therabreath.

    I'm sure there are others out there that are good, but I haven't taken the time to read through ingredients and do any testing. However I do know that Therabreath is the only non-prescription mouthwash I've found that contains ClO2 (Chlorine dioxide, essential for killing germs and bacteria). Again DO NOT SWALLOW THIS SHIT, it's good for your mouth and teeth and terrible, absolutely terrible for the rest of you.
u/elixerboi · 6 pointsr/Dentistry

The difference is not clinically significant. Evidence shows that both clean better on average than manual brushing, but they both work roughly the same.

Kind of stinks most people can't try em both, because they both feel different. FWIW, personally, the Sonicare's buzzing gives me a nails on chalkboard kind of feel while the Oral B is more of a physical rumble.. however, my fiancee prefers the opposite so YMMV. Tons of people go with either Sonicare or Oral B and in the end it doesn't matter.

[here is a quality oral b pro 1000 for $40 on amazon](

here is the most basic sonicare for $20 on amazon; my fiancee used to use it before I gave her mine, but it still worked fine for her.. just the heads are bulkier than the more expensive ones

Or get more expensive ones if you like things like quadrant timers, sensitive/low power settings, bluetooth capability (why?), etc.

u/cwm9 · 5 pointsr/self

Assuming you don't have a medical issue (you probably don't), do these two simple things along with the obvious brushing:

  1. Use a waterpik daily on your gum line and between your teeth. I like to pour in a capful of mouthwash with the water. 1 or 2 tanks of water per session. A classic waterpik is about $40.

  2. Use a tongue scraper daily. After you do this once and see the filth that gets scraped off you will wonder why everyone doesn't do this. Get one of the metal ones with rubberized handles. (E.g. Dr. Tung). They're about $6.

    It will take about a week or two before things really start to get better, but when they do they will be dramatically better.

I got Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips and have been gradually using them in the months leading up to the wedding. I have noticed a difference, but you definitely should use all of them for the best results.

I had my bachelorette last weekend so I used one of the 2 "Express Whitening 1 Hour Treatments" that is included, and definitely got a bit of extra zing from it - however, I did feel a little sensitivity the next day, but nothing crazy.

My everyday carry includes a "Wisp" disposable toothbrush, for just this reason.

Oral-B used to make an even better version called "Brush-Ups" that were basically a little toothpaste-infused paper sleeve that you put over your finger and brushed with it. They packed flat - package was about the size and thickness of a business card. To my great sadness they stopped making them.

u/abrozzi · 4 pointsr/AskMen

Maybe we're not talking about the same one haha I bought this one.

u/goldstandardalmonds · 4 pointsr/Dentistry

I would scrape it with a metal tongue scraper. This one is really popular:

I used to use the regular ones like Oral-B, but this one really worked. I had oral surgery and couldn't brush for the first bit, then wasn't allowed to brush the teeth the surgery was on, couldn't floss, only ate soft foods and tldr, it was dank -- I grew 'hair' on my tongue! Anyway, this helped.

Part of it also is diet -- lots of water, but also fresh foods (like raw fruits and veggies) helps.

u/Aedalas · 4 pointsr/LifeProTips
u/FloatingEyeball · 4 pointsr/whatisthisthing

I found a solution to the problem. Buy a narrow tip angled syringe like these:

Fill a cup full of warm water with salt added to it. Fill the syringe with the water and gently irrigate your tonsils. Repeat as needed. The first couple times you might have to push out the stuff with a q-tip, then irrigate after. Eventually you can just irrigate and they should go away. After doing this and tongue scrapping, you will very rarely get bad breath at all. Even bad morning breath is reduce to almost nothing.

I had severe halitosis for years. It was really, really bad.

After years of trying various products and techniques, and figuring out that many toothpastes and mouthwash products can actually make things worse, this is what worked for me:

u/Siegfoult · 3 pointsr/funny

This one is my fav by far, can't understand why many stores don't stock it (in my area at least):

u/zeezromnomnom · 3 pointsr/Dentistry

Brush twice a day (once before bed and once AFTER breakfast). Floss at least once (I would say at night, since you’ve eaten all day). Don’t snack throughout the day. Rinse your mouth out with water after meals but NEVER after brushing.

But to answer your bad breath thing, also scrape your tongue. And I hear good things about this:

Seriously, you will not regret it. I wake up and get ready for work at 7am, that's when I use therabreath and it keeps keto breath away until around 4-5pm when I'm about to leave work. Just in case I have a bottle of therabreath in the office.
For brushing my teeth I stick to my normal toothpaste.

u/an_gem_21 · 3 pointsr/braces

  1. Colgate Max Fresh Wisp Disposable Mini Toothbrush, Peppermint -

    Great for on the go and at my desk for a quick “brush” but there aren’t many in a pack so I try to use no more than 1 of these per day. I got mine at Target but probably would get a better deal on Amazon.

  2. Plackers Orthopick Flosser for Braces -

    Samples of these came in my “kit” from my ortho and I ordered a stock on amazon. I use these at nigh and use my waterpik in the morning.

  3. Plackers Grind No More Dental Night Guard for Teeth Grinding-

    I let my dentist and ortho know I use these (I prefer them to any other mouth guard I’ve tried) and they ok’d them with braces since they aren’t the heat & mold kind. I use them for a little longer than the box recommends (3 days) but toss them when they get gross.

  4. GUM Orthodontic Wax, Mint with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera-

    I keep seeing people saying they can’t keep wax on. I love this wax (I got 2 kinds, no flavor and mint) because it’s perforated and easy to size out. Just roll in your fingers before applying otherwise it’s not going to stick. The mint is nice and fresh! I am using this a lot while my cheeks are getting used to poking metal but always remove before eating or brushing!

  5. Preserve Mint Tea Tree Flavored Toothpicks-

    Do not use these too aggressively, you don’t want to damage your braces! But after a meal these have been a lifesaver for me. I gently (and hopefully discretely) get food unstuck. I got minty ones and keep a pack in jackets, backpack, car... I’m serious when I say lifesaver!

  6. Trident Sugar Free Chewing Gum-

    This is a bigger debate than getting wax to stick! My ortho did tell me that sugar free gum is allowed but not too much and don’t keep chewing it if it dissolves. Consult your ortho if you’re not sure. I was surprised to find that almost all gum is sugar free. Not all but most. I was searching all over for “SUGAR FREE” specifically and it was right at the register! I might get the 15 pack on Amazon though.

  7. Slim Brush Interdental Cleaners-

    Honestly I don’t use these that often but once and a while it’s nice to clean every nook and cranny. I have to force myself to floss every day so this isn’t something I use often. They are more gentle than toothpicks but food gets caught in the tiny bristles and it turns into a mess. I picked up a small pack at Target.

u/theblamergamer · 3 pointsr/MapPorn

While I'm not necessarily anti-bacon (it is delicious of course!), I do think it is a bit overrated. I mean it's a great breakfast food and I can support putting it on burgers even, but nowadays people put bacon on everything. Bacon on pizza, bacon on hotdogs, bacon in salads, bacon on mashed potatos, bacon flavored ice cream, bacon in people's drinks, even bacon toothpaste. So I just think people should maybe chill on the bacon a bit.

u/tr41t0r · 3 pointsr/Dentistry

Sonicares are nice. 50$. Let the toothbrush do the work for you. Don't try to hammer the crap out of your teeth/gums.

Also be wary of the cheaper heads you can buy for these things (or any toothbrush in general). One reason why they can be cheaper is that the bristles arent as rounded(cheaper to produce) and this can do some damage to the gums.

u/Nebakanezzer · 3 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

For anyone interested:

I've always asked myself the "enamel rebuilding" question. I would see sensodyne ads on TV for enamel rebuilding toothpaste, but I can never find it in the store. I always assumed it just fell under their "pronamel" line. Now this makes so much sense.

Do you have any literature on the effectiveness of Novamin? I am strongly considering switching toothpastes now.

u/jmurphy42 · 3 pointsr/legaladvice

I also saw the post about Novamin the other day. I think you may have misinterpreted what you read there. My impression is that the FDA has no problem with Novamin being available OTC, it's just that the manufacturer has chosen to control the supply and refuse to sell it that way. That wouldn't make it illegal to buy or sell.

If it was actually illegal to buy or sell it in the US, you probably wouldn't be able to order it via Amazon. That's just one of many options on Amazon too.

u/forsayken · 3 pointsr/pcgaming

u/frigidinferno · 3 pointsr/Dentistry

You can also try moving your jaw to the side you're trying to floss. It moves a structure called the coronoid process out of the way to create more "room" especially on the top teeth. A flosser like this used with regular floss can also help

u/my_man_krishna · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

On the subject of tongue brushing, you can also employ a tongue scraper to remove the offending biofilm. I've been using the same stainless steel one in tandem with a toothbrush for years and it works splendidly.

I brushed my tongue every day, but the first time I used this thing so much white shit came off my tongue I had an existential crisis.

Buy it, use it, love it.

BONUS: read the amazon reviews. They are fucking bonkers.

u/caquilino · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

And a tongue scraper.

Most bacteria causing bad breath is on your tongue. Particularly the last third of your tongue—even if you brush it. It's hard to reach. Blah, blah sources. Anyway, a tongue scraper can scrape that stuff away.

Amazon dude, the reviews are testament. And I agree.

u/DocHowser · 2 pointsr/Dentistry

Therabreath is great! But only works if the smell is coming from your mouth. What kind of tongue scraper are you using? I find the plastic ones don’t do anything. I like the metal dr Tung’s tongue scraper from amazon. (Link below)

Dr. Tung's Tongue Cleaner, Stainless Steel (colors may vary)

Other possibilities for bad breath 1. post nasal drip from chronic allergies 2. Acid reflux (smells coming from your stomach.

My best guess is still tonsil stones though, even if they’re not visible. They hide in the folds and holes of the tonsils.

Get one of these and use it when you're high. It's amazing.

u/Bearded_Clam · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

I had all four wisdom teeth and two second molars removed this past July. Here are my tips -

  • There is going to be a lot blood the first day or two, so keep plenty of gauze handy.
  • Once the bleeding has slowed down (after a day or so) start rinsing your mouth with salt water after every meal. This helps keep things clean and is supposed to help the healing process.
  • Pudding is fucking awesome
  • Once the stitches dissolve, you are going to have large holes where your teeth were; these will take a long time to heal. They will become problematic once you starting eating solid food again. Avoid eating things like peanuts and almonds for about a month. They will get stuck in the holes, and getting them out is not fun. Your oral surgeon should give you something like this to help clean things, buy one if he doesn't.
u/Wilawah · 2 pointsr/Dentistry

It is not unusual that one tooth was more difficult to remove than the other. This one had more trauma to the surrounding tissue and will heal slower. Don't worry.

Try a syringe like this to keep the area clean. Use it gently.

u/thejennadaisy · 2 pointsr/answers

There will be a socket left where the tooth used to be, but the surgeon will stich your gums over it so once it heals you won't be able to tell a tooth used to be there.

To clean your sockets, put some salt water into an irrigation syringe and flush them out. It actually feels quite good.

u/abuyamis · 2 pointsr/popping

I use these things with a mixture of water, hydrogen peroxide and listerine. It takes under a minute and you don't get the pain from pressing or digging them out. I usually have to do it every few months.

u/mrducky108 · 2 pointsr/Dentistry

Before ever considering surgery, I would recommend you give a Waterpik a shot and see if that helps clear out your tonsil stones. Just aim it (at the lowest pressure) at your tonsil crypts and you should see a bunch of tonsil stones come gushing out.

u/kpthunder · 2 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

I got tired of hearing this but I hated flossing unless I was using these. They were still too manual for my liking so I look up "power flosser" on Amazon and wound up buying a Waterpik. At my next appointment (after using the Waterpik regularly) the dentist said that my oral health improved by a large margin.

Is there a point to me posting this? Probably not...

u/SARASA05 · 2 pointsr/Frugal

After reading an AMA a while ago about a young guy with really horrible teeth who was recommending to all readers to take special care of their teeth, several commenters recommended a water-pik to help him improve his teeth.

I immediately bought one as a "finished with braces" reward (I got the braces free via tutoring) and because I have a permanent retainer so flossing was too difficult to bother with (bad idea). And this thing is fabulous! It has several different heads to take care of any need. I enjoy using it and highly recommend it. It's probably not a substitute for regular dental care, but I'm sure anything that cleans your teeth and gums really well helps. Plus, the things you describe having bought to supplement a regular dental appointment sound very similar to this.

u/inventorjoe · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

u/upupandawayfa · 2 pointsr/

I like this type. Floss holders.

This lets you use regular floss; you just tear off some floss and wrap it around the fork.

u/luminous_delusions · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Don't sip all day, use a straw if you can, and try to either brush your teeth 30-45 minutes after drinking or swish out your mouth with water.

Also, whitening products in general can help with minor stains if you're diligent about it. Strips won't do jack for the in between but some toothpastes are excellent for slowly removing staining. For example, I use a toothpaste from Japan that's pricey but has definitely kept the worst of my staining at bay and has gotten some of the stubborn stuff between mine to fade. You could probably find cheaper stuff though. I know my aunt that's obsessed with keeping her's super white loves the stuff with Arm and Hammer but I couldn't bear to use it more than twice.

FWIW, I generally drink 2-3 cups a day along with lots of tea and my teeth stay pretty dang white between my cleanings every 8 months. Not like, movie-star white of course, but a normal white according to my dentist.

u/ShinyShinyMeerkat · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

I can't speak from the position of a dentist because we haven't discussed accepted methods for removing them, but I can speak from personal experience.

u/MisterFrogJudgesYou · 2 pointsr/sleep

They make night time mouth guards that work well. You might have to try several brands to find the one that fits best, but it's worth the trial and error when you get the right one. I use these every night:

Plackers Mouth Guard Grind No More Dental Night Protector, 14 Count

u/Platypoctopus · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Try Placker's Grind No Mores. They look like they couldn't possibly work like a full mouth guard, but they do and they're completely comfortable because of how small they are.

I couldn't stand the full mouth guards and they would immediately alter my bite for hours after I woke up. Was very skeptical of the Plackers, but they do prevent you from grinding your teeth together and they're so inconspicuous that you could even keep them in during the day and still talk, drink, etc.

At the very least it's a very cheap option to try and see if it helps.

u/DyslexicHobo · 2 pointsr/findareddit

These things are great. I grind my teeth at night, too. I don't think there is really much you can do to stop it. These night guards aren't really that noticeable. They're cheap and last for quite a while (they say 3-day, but I wear them for up to 2 weeks).

The only differences seem to be the color.

Having used sonicare brushes for years, I would stay away from the models you are looking at because of the brush head design. Especially if multiple people may use it, and change brush heads, that model needs to be unscrewed and gets all gunked up with moisture.

Also, the replacement screw on heads seem to be more expensive on Amazon.

If you can swing it, look in to a model with the smaller, pull off type brush head.

Use a sensitivity toothpaste like Sensodine Repair

u/Eurynom0s · 2 pointsr/freebies

They'll ship to the US from the UK site, it's just a 5 GBP shipping fee. But the lowest price I'm seeing on the US site right now from UK sellers is close to $14 for one tube (a couple of months ago my order was more like $7 for a single tube), so you may as well order direct from the UK site at a price that's more like $12 for 2 tubes including shipping. Be sure to order with a credit card with no foreign transaction fees.

It will probably take a week or two of using it before you really notice a difference. I've noticed that I no longer find myself reflexively bracing when drinking really hot or cold liquids. It's definitely a quality of life improvement.

Now I'm just trying to track down some travel sizes so that I don't have to go without while traveling (I hate checking bags and would hate to have to check a bag just for my toothpaste). For a Friday-Sunday weekend trip it shouldn't really matter but could start to matter if you're on the road for a week or two.

[edit] I just checked Canadian Amazon to see about travel sizes and NOTHING was eligible to ship to California, not even the full sizes, but had no such issues on the UK site. So I guess I'll have to try to score some travel sizes when I go to Vancouver in a few months, but for online ordering for home, it looks like the UK Amazon site is the easiest way to go.

u/EmberHands · 2 pointsr/bestof

Please please please try this I also have pretty shitty teeth but using this toothpaste from Europe has actually given me two of my only "All clear" cleanings from the dentist. All my "trouble spots" have stopped in their fucking tracks. Novamin is owned by GlaxoSmith Kline (sp?) and they only sell it to perscription drug places here in the states so it's not commercially available. My dentist approves of it, it also has fluoride in it, she's pleased with the results.

u/kenlubin · 2 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

The version available in the US doesn't have Novamin, so you have to buy it from the UK.

u/PhantomGamers · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

If you live in the US I believe Sensodyne has a different formulation than what is used in other countries. It's possible whatever the active ingredient is in your prescription toothpaste is actually just what's available in the OTC version globally. You can actually get it on Amazon, maybe it'd be cheaper.

(The key here is the Novamin so you might be able to find even cheaper brands with the same ingredient as well)

u/xenodius · 2 pointsr/StackAdvice

You can import toothpaste with Novamin online:

With as display. That will leave you enough money to get a keyboard like and as mouse. Step down to a 60Hz display if it gets too expensive.

But you maybe should experiment with ergonomic mouses instead. is one common form, goes a bit further (and wow, that's cheap). They aren't necessarily great for shooters, but for slower games they work well, and the second one especially is great as soon as you are used to it.

There are also ergonomic keyboard. With mechanical keyboards you have to consider that the keys can be harder to press (for the Redragon one that is actually unlikely). That can be good or it can be bad, depending on the user.

I have a lot of issues with tooth decay. Like when I go to the dentist what I typically hear is "everything looks really clean and you're doing a great job brushing and flossing BUT you have some cavities...." I also have a lot of spots where my teeth demineralize. So it's a constant struggle to keep the spots that have demineralized from turning into cavities. I also have bad dental anxiety and started seeing a dentist that does sedation dentistry.

For me I was able to get by with just nitrous oxide for most dental procedures (fillings and crowns) and I know some hospitals have started to allow nitrous oxide during labor so it seems safe to assume that isn't horrible for mom and baby. Maybe you could ask about that. It isn't as good for dental anxiety as being able to just to put out while they do whatever but it definitely helps take the edge off the anxiety, at least for me.

As to the pregnancy gingivitis: yep that's a thing and it sucks. My dentist recommended I get a waterpik flosser and start using it on a lower setting and then try to slowly build up to a higher setting as I was able. He also suggested putting a cap full of listerine or some other mouthwash into the tank with the water and flossing with that. Apparently that helps with the gingivitis. And I was instructed to call the office and make an appointment to go back in if the gingivitis started getting worse and I started seeing a lot of bleeding. Last year when I was having a lot of work done I had some spots where my gums were pretty swollen so they gave me a Chlorhexidine mouthwash to use with the waterpik which really seemed to help.

But basically there are options! Just find a good dentist that offers some different options for sedation dentistry that you trust and discuss it all with him/her. Different dentists will have different things they're comfortable with doing while a woman is pregnant. Like, for example, my previous dentist wouldn't do any x-rays at all during any point of a pregnancy. My current dentist will do some x-rays during the later part of the 2nd trimester and the 3rd trimester. So I'd assume the same general willingness to take certain risks would carry over to things like sedation. Some dentists will probably give you some options that others maybe wouldn't.

Hopefully you find something that works for you and you're able to get everything taken care of!

That's too bad about your wake up habits. If you're having such a severe problem waking up, there might be something going on in your body that you might be able to control, be it through sleeping more (or less), medication, diet, fitness. Or maybe you need a different wake-up technique. Other redditors have had success with light alarms which turn on their lights thirty minutes earlier than when the sound alarm goes off.

Keep experimenting!

Water flossing is using water to floss your teeth. This little machine is what one needs in order to waterfloss. Speaking from personal experience, waterflossing is much more pleasurable than using string floss.

LOL oof, yeah you’re gonna want to get one that has a more controllable pressure. I use an older version of this one , which has an adjustable knob from 1-10. I use it on either one or two and it does just the trick. It never feels too harsh when working back there. Only for extended periods of time does it get slightly annoying, but that goes for qtips as well in my experience. It also works very well as a flossing alternative. It’s also a bit pricey tho. Hope this helps!

If you REALLY want to be thorough you can invest in an ultrasonic cleaner. I don't use one so I can't make a specific recommendation but it would be something like this:

FWIW I found third party retainer cleaning tablets like Retainer Brite more effective - and less expensive - than Invisalign's cleaning crystals.

u/althormoon · 2 pointsr/Invisalign

I use one of these ultrasonic cleaners in the morning and at night, with just water and have never had any buildup or discoloration or other cleanliness issues. Some people also use it in conjunction with denture cleaning tablets but I've never felt that was necessary with weekly changes. I let it run one 5 minute cycle, flip both trays over, run it for another 5 minute cycle then run cold water over it for a few seconds and I'm good to go.

u/gallantlady · 2 pointsr/DentalHygiene


This is the electric toothbrush I use and recommend: Sonicare Flex Care Plus. It is cheapest at Costco but comes in a pack of 2. It's important to replace the brush head every 3-4 months. Sonicare now has a subscription service to automatically send you a new brush head when it's time to replace, or you can buy the brush heads when you need them; they come out to approx $9 each on amazon but you can get 6 for $50 at Costco and they oftentimes have a $10 instant rebate. If you need to use a manual toothbrush, I recommend the Nimbus manual toothbrush. These Wisps are really handy when you can't brush after eating.  


The floss I recommend is Dr. Tung's Smart Floss and you can use this  Floss Holder to make it easier to use. (Amazon only sells the floss in packs of 3 or 6 so if you want to purchase a single pack you can find it at Whole Foods, Bristol Farms, or Sprouts.) A Waterpik can also be a great tool, this one is a Handheld Waterpik and is more convenient to use. You can use it in the shower and it takes up less counter space. 


This Crest Gum and Sensitivity  paste is one of my favorites and I like Act Total Care mouthwash. When choosing a toothpaste or mouthwash, look for "sodium fluoride" as an active ingredient.  It's best to stay away from mouthwashes with alcohol in them and whitening/charcoal pastes because the abrasives in them can damage the teeth. If you use a whitening rinse with hydrogen peroxide, only use it 2-3 times per week to avoid making the gum tissue sensitive. Other than that, whatever you prefer is just fine.


For an inexpensive whitening treatment Crest White Strips are a good option.

u/user_1729 · 2 pointsr/Invisalign

I think I fall in line with most of the folks here. If I have the equipment and the time, I'll brush/floss, I've noticed I need to swoosh around a lot more after brushing. I'll swish and spit a few mouthfuls of water and make sure nothing everything that was dislodged is out of my mouth. If I'm on the run or out, I'll just rinse/toothpick/use one of these, and toss em back in. As many have suggested, if I'm out all day and don't get a good brush, I'll spend a little extra time cleaning the tray at night. Do do a full on brush/floss every time I eat is a bit excessive, but I will say I don't feel "right" until I have done a brush floss, for instance, I will likely never go to bed without brushing/flossing and making sure there's no chunks in/around the trays.

u/treebeard42 · 2 pointsr/ADHD

Anyway.. Oral care.. Here's what I've started doing. Get several packs of these Colgate Wisp things. I keep a pack in the car, a pack in my office, a pack at home.. just wherever. They're especially great in the car. I don't think they're better than brushing the usual way, but they're loads better than nothing. They leave your teeth squeaky clean and your breath fresh.

u/slicky803 · 1 pointr/vancouver

Serious reply here... I got a tongue scraper on a whim a few years back, and it is honestly the best thing ever. I find a combo of floss and scraping more helpful at reducing halitosis than a tooth brush any day (though you should really be doing all three). It's hard to go back after you see the kind of disgusting gunk you can pull off your tongue. The one I got is similar to this. 10/10, no question. 0/10 with rice. Do not eat the scrapings at all. That would be gross.

its basically a strap of metal that you can scrape the white/colored layer on your tongue. ive always used one since i was a kid, and its great for breath too

u/tedivm · 1 pointr/eldertrees

What you have is normal. It's a boifilm caused by bacteria on the tongue. It is not thrash or a yeast infection, like others have said. Many people have this even without smoking.

What you want is a tongue scrapper. Use this before brushing your teeth, and make sure you use mouthwash to kill off bacteria before it forms another biofilm. It'll also help your breath and improve your sense of taste.

I suggest this one.

u/anonymousdyke · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Stop brushing your tongue and get a Dr Tung scraper from your local Sprouts Market or other hippy grocer.

Try a tongue scraper in stainless steel.

You would not believe the crap that came off my right after I quit. I use after I brush in the morning- don't know if it is smoking related or not. But it was almost clay-like.. it's lessoned considerably in the past month- but also read these amazon reviews! It will really help your breath!

It works way better than just brushing and mouth wash.

Also- wouldn't hurt to schedule a dentist cleaning..

Buy dental insurance (or a dental plan.) Then get yourself checked out. If your insurance doesn't cover everything you need, ask if you can set up a payment plan.

Either way, start working on your oral hygiene. Just because you go to the dentist once doesn't mean you can get away without brushing your teeth.

For this you should get a tongue scraper, brush 2-3 times a day, and swish your mouth with hydrogen peroxide (you can get a bottle for $1.) Flossing is also a good idea. If you can afford it, a Waterpik takes a lot of the hassle out of that.

u/mutilatedlipz · 1 pointr/Stims

This is essentially the product, but I got six of them for like $5. Sometimes you have to search a bit for a deal. Basically you want an oral syringe. I hope this helps. When I got comfortable with this method I've never looked back.

I usually keep the humidity high enough that they tiniest pitchers even have fluid, and feed the the pellets whole, as I think that they will drop to the bottom of the trap. If I crushed them they might stick to the sides and mold. I usually use a single led diode on a battery to see though the pitcher walls, and if there is any fluid. It wouldn't be a bad idea to add a few drops of water to a Sarracenia seeding's pitchers, a lot of people use these things to add water/feed fertilizer to many pitcher-type carnivores:

u/jaredharley · 1 pointr/AskReddit

You get them to drink a small amount of hydrogen peroxide - it hits their stomach, reacts and foams up, causing them to empty their stomachs. From what I've been told, you have about 20 minutes from the time the dog eats whatever it is before it starts working its way down the tubes.

Our dog, Texas, is a half mini-dachshund, half-minpin brat who likes to eat stuff. On a few occasions, when he found a pair of my wife's underwear and tore them up, (I know, gross) we've had to give him some peroxide to get them to throw the fabric back up. Getting him to open his mouth was a chore, so we ended up using a dental syringe because it's got a curved tip which slides right between his teeth and squirts the peroxide right down his throat. We usually use 3-5 ccs of peroxide.

A word of warning, here - the fuller the stomach, the less peroxide you need. And as mentioned above, it works, and it works fast. Texas tries to resist it at first, and you can see him concentrating on not puking, but within a minute he's emptying his stomach. We always give him a piece of bread after he's done so that he doesn't have an empty stomach.

As for doing it outside, I disagree - I'd rather do it inside so you can clean it up and make sure you got the offending material the dog ate. The puking never lasts long, as long as you don't use too much peroxide. We do it in small doses, and if the first squirt doesn't work, we give him a little more. Rubbing and jiggling his belly helps move the progress along too.

Not sure about gingivitis, but I started experimenting with Apagard.

Apagard Japanese toothpaste

It’s a sensitive teeth toothpaste, with nanohydrooxyapite, basically supposed to help fill in little imperfections, kill cavities without fluoride.

I’m liking it so far, my teeth feel super smooth. My teeth are looking a little whiter then the crest 3D white I was using.

Apparently people really like this because it’s a Floride free option. 🤷🏼‍♂️

u/therein · 1 pointr/conspiracy

When it comes to toothpaste, you have an alternative for fluoride. A really great one. It is called Hydroxyapatite. I have been using this for the last few years and couldn't be happier.

What is basically impossible to find is actually floss without fluoride coating. There is simply no way to find those new stick variety without fluoride.

And also there is of course water. I had at one point bought a Big Berkey water filter to filter out fluoride but it proved less practical than the fridge's water dispenser.

Sonicare changed my life. It does cost, but for me it's either pay that or pay for an extra annual cleaning at the dentist. (Edit here: why is it good? Besides the sonic science thing? It times your brushing, so you do the full 2 minutes recommended. It can even beep when it's time to move from one quadrant of your mouth to another. Brilliant. Tip: change heads every 3 months or you lose effectiveness.)

Not a fan of flossing because of the wrapping string around the finger and contort to floss deal, but then I got hip to these babies: . You have a toothbrush-like handle and you pop on a fresh u-shaped head with a bit of floss strung between. They're like Plackers, but I keep it next to my toothbrush so I remember.

Tonsilliths are probably a big problem, especially if you have a lot of sinus and drainage issues or consume a lot of dairy. Go YouTube tonsil stones and have a world of fun.

Not a fan of Listerine. If I wanted mouth burn, I'd drink cheap shit. There are gentler option out there with aloe Vera or hydrogen peroxide for whitening.

Every morning and night I floss, use waterpik, brush using therabreath toothpaste, rinse & gargle with the therabreath mouthwash. Before using the waterpik when I would floss I would have this really funky smell between some of my teeth, now when I floss the smell is completely gone! If you try out my suggestions please let me know how it went! Good luck and hapoy new year!

u/Higgs_Br0son · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

For prevention, gargle non-alcoholic mouthwash. It has to have the right ingredients though, I used a blue Crest one that just stained my teeth and made the problem worse, probably because of the artificial sweetener I discovered in the ingredients. I think you want to look for zinc, and something about oxygenation effects.

I used this stuff to get rid of some tonsil stones that I couldn't push out, it worked after 3 days of gargling each morning and night. I got it at Walgreens.

It's a bit expensive, but it worked great for removal. Once I run out of that stuff, I'll try switching to a different (edit: and half-the-price) clear, zinc mouthwash I saw on the same shelf at the pharmacy.

u/sylphofspace · 1 pointr/AskWomen

It works well for me, and I'd recommend buying something like these guys if you have tonsil stones. It takes a bit of practice to use them without hurting yourself (it's very easy to gag on the water if you're not tilting your head forward, you can stab yourself very easily, etc), but if you're able to very gently ease the syringe tip into the difference crevices of the tonsil, it's incredibly easy to flush out your tonsils and get all the little bits of tonsil stones hiding away in there. And that way, you don't have to wait for them to get big enough to fall out on their own.

u/Exekyel · 1 pointr/popping

I used popsicle sticks first, rough, would not recommend. Then an oral irrigator, but I moved and couldn't fit it on the new faucet. Then an electric jet, but it's really expensive and mine broke. Now I use these syringes, and they work as well as (maybe better than) the electric jet.

You can use them one-handed and hold a flashlight in your off-hand! Fill the syringe with water (optionally add mouth rinse) then hold the syringe with your thumb and pinky on the top of the barrel and your index finger on the end of the plunger. I may have monster hands, so you may not want to fill the syringe completely (so the plunger won't stick out as far).

Tl;dr? Buy these.

u/goldragon · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

Actually do not get those little plastic bottles I linked before =/. I ordered them and got them the other day with the idea to share samples of Floid Black (my fav aftershave) and Floid Blue. I just tried filling some up (using an oral irrigator which made a nice syringe) but with the caps screwed on they were not leak-proof. A few leaked just being held upside-down, others leaked if shaken. I just don't think they'd last being shipped through the mail.

Well I was going to go ahead and order a bottle of American Blend aftershave but it looks like you're sold out! I was planning on ordering some aftershave splash from TheShaveDen. I had some of their TSD Signature Scent (bay rum + bergamot) which I really liked but sold it off in a shave den clearance.

I have TMJ issues as well and definitely clench/grind my teeth more when I’m high, which just aggravates it. I’d recommend getting the over-the-counter mouth guards, they’re fairly cheap compared to a custom one and work just as well ($22 compared to $300-400).

The best ones imo are the Placker’s Grind No More . They don’t require boiling or anything, just pop ‘em in before you sleep and the discomfort should slowly start getting better. The package recommends disposing of it every three days but really you can use one for about a week without any issue.

Use an electric tooth brush. I found sores are caused by knocking/stabbing my gums with the hard plastic of a regular toothbrush and nothing to do with the actual bristles of the brush. An electric toothbrush doesn't involve jabbing and the friction of the head is unlikely to cause sores.

  1. This amazing crockpot. This bad boy is easy to clean, dishwasher safe parts, and is programmable!!

  2. This toothbrush - this thing is rechargeable and removes 100% more plaque than regular brushing - and sensor tells you when to switch areas of the mouth. Sweet!

  3. Wildflower by Drew Barrymore - I've been dying to read this and it's supposed to be a really good memoir. :)

  4. Macintosh Apple Candle - this smells SO good and fills up the whole house with yummy-ness.

  5. This chenille blanket - so soft and warm! I love blankets and throws and this one will be so cozy.

Bacon Toothpaste scares the living hell out of me. Im already not a big fan of bacon in the first place.

also Im interested in those Scaries because they look amazing ;____;

u/ItaloFontana · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

Best advice I can offer other than oil pulling is to get an Electric toothbrush. THIS is what I have, and its amazing. Since buying it about 2 years ago I never have any dental problems and my dentist says my teeth are looking great. I was very hesitant to get one of these for a while but its one of the best decisions I've made.

u/TheBlindCat · 1 pointr/AskMen

I actually have the $40 model. It's awesome, but I'm not sure what the $150 dollar one does.

u/DeeplyTroubledSmurf · 1 pointr/sex

It really depends on how strong of a vibrator you need. This works for us, and it's a little bit stronger than you'd expect.

If you need something with a big kick, you'll probably have to do a lot of searching though. Going to a toy store would be the best bet.

Here's something that might make you laugh...The only other thing that has worked for us during sex is This. We wrap a piece of tape around it, and the thing is stupidly powerful. The neck is small, and the body of it can rest on your stomach. The only down side is that it has a timer and cuts out every 30 seconds, then stops at 2 minutes. It really is annoyingly strong, and useless for its intended purpose.

This is the one I am talking about

The link you gives only have the HX5610/01 HX5620/20 HX5630/50 but not the HX5610/30. I am not even sure what the number 30 means.

I order mine online and I'm in the US (not legal probably, but easy to find on Amazon). It's a tad more expensive but it's great stuff. Just throwing that out there to a fellow bad-teeth buddy.

u/elislider · 1 pointr/worldnews

where are you seeing £3? Cheapest I see on Amazon is $7.80 and on ebay (from a place I'd be more inclined to trust) is ~$11/tube. Just be careful you are actually buying Sensodyne with Novamin because the USA packaging (without Novamin) looks EXACTLY the same. Only if you can read the actual package clearly and can either see the tiny print saying "Novamin" or can read the ingredients list.

EDIT: Ok I guess you were looking on Keep in mind that doesn't include shipping to the USA... which can be pricey if you're not factoring it in ahead of time

u/orangesrhyme · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

here's the one I bought (or at least, Amazon says so). $9 with free shipping.

u/fenrir849 · 1 pointr/Futurology

$20? I think you may be looking at the wrong seller. Here is the one I order on Amazon, the only downside is it takes 2 months to arrive so I buy them in bulk.

u/MrAkai · 1 pointr/snackexchange

The last order was 1 tube for $7.29 + $1.99 shipping (so $9.28)

I realized I was mistaken I ordered from not and it shipped from the UK.

It does look like it's gone up about a buck or so since then, but here's the URL:

Also one of the places I bought from via Amazon sells direct as well:

If you can make a trade with UK or Canada you can probably save some $ (and make a fellow snackexchanger happy) but if you can't arrange it, I've found these to be good sources.

u/TheNoize · 1 pointr/bestof

Actually, I just ordered, this is the right link. It must be shipped from the UK :/ Thanks capitalism...

Not sure about the penguin mouses, but my mom used this kind for a long time because she had bad wrists and loved it. Dunno how well it would work for gaming though.

Worst case scenario though, almost all companies that sell mice will take an open return if you don't like it.

u/alphager · 1 pointr/FragReddit

Klar. Sowas hier. oder das hier. Habe beide im Einsatz. Haben beide Vor- und Nachteile; ich komme mit beiden gut zurecht.

Zum FPS-Spielen nutze ich dann aber eine "normale" Maus. ;-)

u/thats_not_good · 1 pointr/buildapc

Does anyone have any experience with ergonomic/vertical mouse? I have pain in my right wrist for a couple of months now and it hurts a little when I hold a mouse in my hand. The only one I ever tried was this microsoft one but I was hoping to find something a little less expensive (the mouse alone is ~€40). I've found this one (and a few more that look identical) for half the price but I've never tried anything like it (there are multiple brands with basically identical looking mice with slightly different specs). Reviews overall seem fine.

Note that I want to use it at work, not for gaming.

u/StigCzar · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

Anker makes really good products and they have 2 versions below $30

Anker 2.4G Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Optical Mouse, 800/1200 /1600DPI, 5 Buttons - Black for $29.99 and free shipping with Prime.

Anker Ergonomic Optical USB Wired Vertical Mouse 1000/1600 DPI, 5 Buttons CE100 for $22.99 and free shipping with Prime.

If there's one brand I trust a lot for cables, dongles, chargers and charging banks, it's Anker. Their customer service is phenomenal.

This mouse cured my carpel tunnel symptoms:-

To answer your question, I don't know much about it. But thought I could share which helped me.

u/servedconserved · 1 pointr/microdosing

The best thing I ever got for my gum health was a WaterPik Water Flosser. I use it once a day, takes less than 2 minutes. Use warm water and it feels real good, your gums need to get used to it, you can set the pressure so that you can start low and as your gums improve you can increase it over time so your gums don't hurt too much when you start out.

It not only cleans off plaque and food particles, the water action massages your gums, improves the blood flow and keeps them tight and healthy. Also, look into oral probiotics to get you healing up faster.

u/dumb_logic · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Get a water flosser and you'll never have this problem.

u/JawAnon · 1 pointr/Dentistry

I just got mine on mid-May prior to jaw surgery, and this definitely holds up. My orthodontist had a fancy contraption to hold my mouth open while they applied all the brackets that they didn't have the first two times I had braces. That definitely made the whole process much easier on my jaw.

I'd also add that during the first few weeks, those couple brackets you'll have on will chew up your gums a bit. Rinsing liberally with salt water (I make up a bottle that I keep handy) will help heal them faster. Put a bit of wax on the bracket right away. Once the spot is healed, stop using the wax so your gums can form a bit of a callous.

I would also just avoid the foods they tell you to avoid all together. You probably won't have the brackets on very long and it's just not worth it to lose a bracket over. I was informed at my last appointment that I'd lost one, and I'm on a liquid diet! It takes soooo long for them to put it back on that they just decided to wait until next time to put a new bracket on.

Watepiks are great for braces (the model I have comes with a tip for braces and has been on sale for under $50 frequently lately). Otherwise, you should use a threader to floss.

There are now way more options for brackets than there were years ago. There are traditional metal and ceramic braces that need rubber bands to ligate. But now there are also Damon brackets (which come in metal and clear versions) that self ligate. So no need for rubber bands or tightening (you still get wire changes), and your teeth move faster. The brackets themselves are also slightly smaller. They are so much better than the tradition brackets I had when I was younger. I've only had them for a few weeks and I can't believe how much teeth movement I've already had.

  1. Lumo Lift Posture Coach and Activity Tracker It lets you know when you're slouching and a sensor vibrates remind you to sit straight and stand tall. I have horrible posture and I really think it's to blame for my neck and back pain. For those of us on the computer a lot, I think this will help! $78.99 (I can dream WL)

  2. Waterpik Aquarius Water Flosser (WP-660C) because it's so much better than regular flossing! Overwhelmingly positive reviews and with multiple heads for massaging and flossing. Gets into hard to reach areas and the pressure water helps break built up plaque easier than regular flossing. Promises to leave your mouth feeling fresh. 79.99 (I can dream WL)

  3. Thinks Geek Plush Skull Slippers because they're so cute and soft! And the reviews are positive. $9.95 (default WL)

iSonic F3900 Ultrasonic Cleaner for Dentures, Retainers, and Mouth Guards, 100-120V

u/jayaldrich26 · 1 pointr/Invisalign

TBH I work with people too and in college. I've taken them out for food and some people were like "wtf I didn't even know you had those". Like for real bro, don't even sweat it. You didn't pay all this money to feel anxious about other peoples opinions. Wear them with confidence. If you want them to look brand new all the time consider investing in a machine that cleans them. I'll put the link below. The first link is the machine. The second link is the tablets I use in the machine to clean the aligners. My buddy was doing this and I couldn't believe how clean his look even on the 10th day. We both change trays every 10 days and I always feel like around day 7 they start getting kinda gross. Ever since I bought these even on day 10 they look like day 1 clean. On the grand scheme its worth it because most people are given a retainer at the end to wear at night and this machine will clean that mouth guards for sports, jewelry, etc.


u/lyrastarr · 1 pointr/Invisalign

I've used this one for two years (looks to be slightly different now though; likely other newer similar items on the market with good reviews!)

u/Godswood2 · 1 pointr/Invisalign

This is what I have. I use it morning and night sometimes with a retainer brite tablet, sometimes not. Either way I feel like the aligners are perfectly clean once through the cycle.

I recommend.

u/johnnydoe22 · 1 pointr/Invisalign

This is probably the one you're thinking of. I'm going to probably buy this one and use the denture cleaner tablets I already have. I just want to see if other's have done the same thing basically.

u/LuckyWhip · 1 pointr/CrazyIdeas

u/Lionpurr · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I bought a bunch of those "travel disposable tooth brushes" for my office at work. Helps a bit after eating something that makes my mouth taste funky :D I think it kinda attributes to the nausea as well.

u/scurvydawg69 · 1 pointr/Ultralight

I use these Disposable Travel Toothbrushes. Super light, I can get a few uses out of each one (if I bring a little toothpaste along as well). I rarely hike longer than a week, so if you're going the distance then I suppose a more traditional toothbrush would weigh less than having to bring more than a few of these.

u/dr_omniglot · 1 pointr/AskMen

Check out these dental floss holders: I too dislike flossing with my hands but one day I thought, "someone must have invented a dental floss holder" so I checked on Amazon and voila. I've been flossing my teeth every day for 5-6 years now!

u/TiDoBos · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

Mine is so old it doesn't want to hold a charge anymore.

u/JesterTime · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Mines just an off brand one I spent $10 on. I think the round head fits better and allows me to really focus on 1 tooth at a time. I've been looking into this one and I like the reviews though.

I've found that works well for me—I like the angle of the floss better than with disposable flossers (which your design seems to copy).

These are the best - cheap, and when they get nasty you just throw them away. They are smaller than normal night guards and I can barely tell they are there.

u/jif8 · -1 pointsr/DentalHygiene

I used to believe that too. Not anymore. In fact, it was recently given the ADA seal of acceptance for being able to prove it's as effective as floss. Also, here is another device with a full-size handle that you can wrap floss around.
