I have a Braun rechargeable toothbrush that I use daily. Since I have used it, I haven't needed any dental work except routine cleaning. I use it for the 2 minutes recommended by dentists, and it has been a great investment for my health and for my pocketbook!
They say that good gum health can affect all other areas of health.

When I feel the urge to shop (I live in a rural area, I might add) I go to amazon.com and look up what I'd like to get. The great thing is that after I add it to my cart, I have the option to "Save for Later" and I usually don't end up buying half of what I put in there! Plus if I save up a couple of things that I actually do need, I can use the free shipping option. I also am a mega price comparison freak! If I look something up on amazon, I'll also check out Ebay and google shopping to make...
sure I'm getting the best deal possible. (sorry for the long secret!!!)
Nighttime seems to be when I "undo" all of my good work for the day. So now I immediately brush my teeth and floss so I get my choppers all nice and clean. With fresh, minty breath I don't want to eat something and ruin in all. Plus the minty taste will usually interfere with my sweet cravings. Not a good mix.
Equipment needed: A good toothbrush, floss and toothpaste. Benefits: Great dental hygiene and a minty fresh kisser! 212
Everyone falls off the wagon at times, but it's not the fact that we fall off but the fact that we get back on, that counts. When you want to come back after time off, think about how far you've already come. Even if you gained back weight, or maybe gained back all and then some, you've still never gone completely back to that old you. You STILL are in the fight to be healthy, and that has to count for something!
If you follow this secret, you won't look at getting/staying healthy as a chore but something that is fun and makes you happy.
