    Hard bristles used to be my fave, but they started to make my gums bleed so had to downgrade.

    Good thread.
    *Official Show Your Teeth Thread* would have been better though

    Like Sledger I am yet to require fillings and have recently made the switch to the electric toothbrush on advice of a dental hygienist. Turns out in using a manual toothbrush I was applying excess pressure to my gumline resulting in a 'brushing away of the gumline' - I'm sure you'll agree not something one would wish to continue.

    To the matter at hand, I brush post-breakfast and just before bed. Like good Sledger I find the taste of anything, in particular milk and orange juice, extremely unpleasant in the period immediately after brushing Juan's teeth. My brush exploits last approximately 3 minutes each, aided by the pulsing of my electric brush informing me of this time of optimal brushing being achieved. To aid in the non-brushing away of my gumline, the brush has a red light that flashes when I apply too much pressure, a feature I have found most useful. A quick rinse of the mouth and thorough clean of the brush with water is mandatory after each event.

    Below I have included an indicative image of my electronic tooth brush device, which is identical in color to what myself and mrs ripper use.

    This is an excellent thread. I brush, use mouthwash and clean my tongue with the tongue cleaner on the back of the brush every night before I sleep. In the morning I just brush as soon as I wake up. A bit of gargling gets rid of the taste that would otherwise ruin breakfast.

    Anyway, on to more pressing business. Is it just me, or is it really odd when people brush their teeth before breakfast, and then go and eat straight after? From what I can see this is nonsense on at least two levels. Firstly, there is no point cleaning your teeth just to get them covered in food again a moment or two later. Surely it would be more sensible to just brush them afterwards. Secondly, if you wake up and brush your teeth before breakfast, your breakfast will just taste like toothpaste/taste generally dire. Why would you do this?
    I used to think this too but apparently it's actually a really, really bad idea unless you wait a while afterwards before brushing. All you're doing is brushing away the enamel from your own teeth.

    Rinsing out your mouth after brushing is also apparently a bad idea too

    Was quite interested to learn from a science based medicine podcast I heard that apparently flossing is significantly less important than your dental hygienist makes it out to be. Which isn't to say that you shouldn't floss, just that it's far less important than brushing for the right amount of time (which is apparently 4 minutes).

    My dad's a dentist, brushing after eating is fine, recommended in fact. Also, only use soft head toothbrushes (or electric toothbrushes), never anything harder. And floss every day.
