Brushing Your Teeth Before or After Breakfast?
Should You Brace Your Teeth Before or After Breakfast?
If you are thinking about getting braces, then it’s time to decide whether you want to get them right now, or wait until later. If you have decided to get braces today, then here are some things that will make your life easier:
1) Get a toothbrush and flosser.
These items will save time when brushing your teeth.
2) Make sure you have enough money to pay for the dental work.
Most dentists charge $200-$300 per set of braces.
3) Get a mirror so you can see yourself properly before and after your braces are put on.
(You may need one if you’re not used to looking at yourself. )
4) Have someone else do all the cleaning up around the house.
This person could be a friend, relative, or even a maid.
5) Do not forget to take off your jewelry before putting on your new braces!

Do Your Teeth Hurt When You Eat Ice Cream?
When I was younger, I used to love eating ice cream. Every chance I could, I would stuff my mouth with as much ice cream as possible. Sure, it was delicious, but it also gave me really bad toothaches!
Is this happening to you too?
If your answer is yes, then you may want to consider getting some mouthguards for yourself. These handy little items will prevent your teeth from being damaged by the coldness of the ice cream.
There are a few types of mouthguards that you can get. You can either get the cheap kind at your local drug store, or you can get the more durable kind at a sporting goods store. Both mouthguards will do the job of protecting your teeth from getting damaged.
