3 well know facts about our teeth and us

Fact 1

None of us actually enjoy a visit to the dentist. Its just one of those things we all have to do and its normally the job that’s put off as long as possible by using every excuse under the sun and eventually done when we get the 3rd/4th reminder from our dentist!

Fact 2

We all acknowledge that dental hygiene is very important for so many different reasons.

Fact 3

We all want perfectly straight, sparkling white teeth that any ‘A’ list Hollywood celebrity would aspire to be seen with on the red carpet!

Molar however have launched a new TePe Interdental Brushes, designed to help us maintain our teeth, prevent gum disease and help us have better dental care at home and for less then £4.00 it’s certainly worth exploring.

I tried the mixed pack containing all available sized 8 brushes from the smallest Pink 0.4mm through to Grey 1.3mm (this one I’m sure is for cleaning the holes in your iron or the loo in your children’s dolls house. Trust me there is no way that this one would fit between any of your teeth). Also available are Orange 0.45mm, Red 0.5mm, Blue 0.6mm and Yellow 0.7mm, Green 0.8mm and Purple 1.1mm. Sense told me to start mid range so after selecting the Red one I worked my way around my mouth gently seeing if I could slide it between the gaps in my teeth. At this point I should point out I don’t have the perfect smile. As a child I wore a brace, which I hated and took out at any opportunity when my parents weren’t around and as a result I have a slightly crooked couple of top teeth, 1 filling and one at a bit of an angle on the bottom. This said there was no way the Red one was fitting between any of my teeth. Orange followed a similar journey until I decided Pink was the one for me. I managed to slide it between my two bottom front teeth and as instructed I slide it backwards and then forwards. The sensation was like running your fingernails down a blackboard. There I was in the bathroom with this Pink handle sticking out of my mouth, attached to a small wired brush firmly wedged between my teeth, that somehow I had to slide out.

Never again will I put something that looks like a miniature loo brush between my teeth in the name of beauty.

I don’t dispute they wouldn’t work perfectly for some people, giving them an alternative to the cheese wire we call floss and help the adult population of the UK to achieve that desired Hollywood smile. I also don’t dispute that for people who wear a brace, plate or have a bridge that this product wouldn’t make removing tricky particles of food a more enjoyable experience. I just know that this product had a funny effect on my entire body and one I wish never to repeat.

For those of you that wish to try this innovative product you can purchase it for dental practices and chemists including Superdrug, Boots, Lloyds, Alliance Pharmacy and supermarkets including Tesco’s, Asda, Sainsburys and Waitrose.
