Everyone who knows me knows I am completely obsessive compulsive about dental hygiene. As a young girl I remember my mother being the same way – reminding me several times a day to brush and floss. When I got braces as a teenager I began carrying a toothbrush with me at all times, and would duck in to the bathroom to brush every chance I got – always fearful that I would have something stuck in my braces or get a cavity underneath a bracket. That habit is one I still have – and I believe it is why I am about to celebrate my 34th birthday and have never had a cavity or a toothache.
Good dental care is critical to your health for so many reasons. Besides just appearance, daily dental care and regular dentists visits can help to diagnose and even treat many other health issues. New research suggests that your dental health can provide a direct connection to your overall health. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, there is a relationship between gum (periodontal) disease and health complications such as a stroke and heart disease.
When I was contacted to test out the new REACH Complete Care toothbrush – I jumped at the chance. I have always used REACH products because they are what my dentist recommends. The new REACH Complete Care toothbrush has triple angled bristles to more easily reach more of your tooth. Most people have no problem cleaning the front surface – but its those crevices and around the back that need the most care! The new REACH Complete Care toothbrushes are lightweight and have the ever-important tongue scraper on the back. Did you know that the main cause of bad breath is your tongue?! Ick!
My thoughts on the REACH Complete Care Triple Angle Toothbrush:
So the ones I received were the “soft” bristles – which I normally do not like. I am a “firm” bristle girl – I have always thought they made my teeth feel cleaner. But I chose to give them a chance. After 2 weeks of brushing with these my teeth feel just as clean as my firm bristle toothbrushes. I’ve realized I dont have to scrub my teeth like there is no tomorrow to still get the straight-from-the-dentist feel.
You can get the new REACH Complete Care Triple Angle Toothbrush and all of the other REACH dental care products at your local Walmart.
