Ramblings: Tea-th stains

I started this tea blog with good intentions to keep it up regularly. But I was spending so much time on each post that I eventually couldn’t find time to work on it any more.

Going forward, each post will be shorter, allowing me to post more often. Today, for example …

Recently I read a couple of articles about a method for preventing dental plaque. The recommendation was to brush your teeth with water only — no toothpaste — on your brush for a minute or two each day. This was to be followed by another minute or two of brushing with toothpaste.

As I come from a long line of plaque collectors, I decided to give it a try. I have now been using this method for a few weeks, and have actually seen some subtle results.

Then, a couple of days ago, a friend who knows that I occasionally use tooth-whitening strips to deal with the tooth stains that plague tea drinkers remarked that I had obviously been using the strips recently because my teeth looked whiter.

Except that I hadn’t used them. The whitening effect was apparently from the water-brushing.

So I pass this along to you. It’s simple, it’s convenient, and it’s inexpensive. All you need is a soft-bristle toothbrush, some water, and a mirror. It’s good for teeth, gums, and appearance. What more could you ask for? (This anecdotal posting is not to be construed as dental or medical advice.)
