Introduction

Most of what you have been told in your life presented tooth brushing as some stern virtue. I am going to present it is a technique for getting laid more often.

The Benefits

Proxy Brush

You probably have never heard of a proxy brush. It looks like a miniature bottle brush. You use them to clean between teeth. They can’t fit between all teeth, but they do a much better job than floss of cleaning the larger spaces between teeth.

Colgate Prevident

Colgate sells Prevident brand toothpaste that has 1.1% fluoride (5000 ppm), four to five times the usual amount. In theory, it is available by prescription only, but it is sold over the counter in drug stores and at Walmart for about four times the price of ordinary toothpaste. It comes in bubblegum, mint and a sensitive formula that makes teeth less sensitive. The liquid gel form is the better bargain. Ask your dentist if you should be using it to remineralise your teeth. Don’t let kids use it.

Shopping for a Toothbrush

This is the older fatter Essence style that I use myself. It is cheaper than the newer models without the fancy not-that-useful features. The only thing seriously wrong with it is after about 3 years, the rechargeable battery gradually loses the ability to hold a charge and you have no option but to discard the whole unit or buy an new handle from the USA. I don’t know if any of the newer models are any better. This model comes with only one brush head. Philips has also disabled the quadrant timer to remind you to get on with the next quarter of your mouth. I suspect they did that hoping to irritate people into buying the crazy expensive models. Phht!

I have discovered you can get even better results with it by holding it vertically for part of the brushing. It then brushes each tooth side-to-side rather than up and down over the entire tooth length. You can think of it as like sweeping a floor in two directions.

The replaceable heads cost about $20 each and last 6 months. This sounds exorbitant until you consider how much you save in dentist bills. Each time you brush your teeth with a sonic toothbrush, in terms of number of brushstrokes, it is like brushing your teeth manually thirty times. 31,000 brush strokes per minute.

Specs.

Philips/Sonicare created the original sonic toothbrush, but now there are other brands too. I am not familiar with them. Amazon sells this model under four different part numbers and four different prices. You have to look around even within Amazon to get the best deal.

This is the top of the line Sonicare model. It comes in both white and black versions. I have never used one. The charge reputedly lasts 3 weeks. When you first buy it, it gradually increases the intensity with each use. It comes with two chargers. One looks like a bathroom glass. One looks like a eye glasses case that plugs into a USB port.

It has five modes:

  • Clean: For everyday clean
  • Gum Care: Gently massages gums
  • Polish: Brighten and polish your teeth
  • Sensitive: Gentle teeth and gum cleaning
  • Whitening: Removes surface stains

They claim the brush cleans better because of the way it pushes liquid between your teeth. It has a timer to remind you to spend 30 seconds on each quadrant. They claim is removes up to 7 times as much plaque as manual brushing. 31,000 brushstrokes per minute. Each time you brush your teeth with a sonic toothbrush, in terms of number of brushstrokes, it is like brushing your teeth manually thirty times.

Specs.

There are also intermediate models called the Flexcare, the HealthyWhite, The HealthyWhite Platinum (two units with UV sanitiser), the XTreme, the PowerUp and the EasyClean. Amazon sells this unit under seven different part numbers with seven different prices. They change the prices daily. You have to look around even within Amazon to get the best deal. Their database does not have the correct prices, so I cannot find you the best deal by computer. I have asked Amazon’s CEO twice to fix this. He effectively told me to go fuck myself. They are not changing anything just for the convenience of mere customers. With that attitude, Amazon will not stay on top much longer.
