That dental visit wore me out! avery

By the time your child is 2 or 3 years old they should have 20 primary teeth. If they are cutting teeth and are in pain try rubbing the gums with a clean finger, or rub the gums with the back of a small, cool spoon. Children should start visiting the Dentist with you around the age of 3 or 4 years old.

Lots of people suffer from bruxism, or tooth grinding. Several things can cause this, such as stress, tension, or lack of sleep. You can treat this by wearing a hard acrylic splint to prevent pain or soreness.


The longest kiss took place in 1999, when Karmit Tsubera and Dror Orpaz kissed for 30 hours and 45 min. They won a kissing contest in Tel Aviv, Israel that Colgate Toothpaste helped sponsor. One hundred and seven couples participated. (Guinness world records: 2001)

Smile Tips

TIP #1 - Don't have time to brush, try a stick of sugarless gum. The chewing action stimulates saliva flow. Saliva works as our natural mouthwash by dissolving the volatile sulfur molecules that produce bad breath. Saliva also neutralizes acids produced by plaque bacteria these acids eat into tooth enamel to create cavities.

TIP #2 - To clean your teeth better, don't brush harder, it takes very little pressure to remove plaque and food from our teeth. Yet nearly two out of three people brush too hard. Brushing harder doesn't get teeth cleaner but only damages tooth enamel and gum tissue, leading to tooth sensitivity and receding gums. Remember to lighten up when you brush. To clean your teeth better gently brush all of your tooth surfaces. This takes nearly three minutes and most people fail at this, missing the same spots day after day.

TIP #3 - Your tongue could be causing your bad breath; it is hiding millions of microscopic bacteria that feed on left over food. In this feeding process they crate volatile sulfur compounds that give breath its foul odor. For fresher breath, rid your tongue of these bacteria with one of several commercially available tongue scrapers. (Source Chuck Peters of
