when brushing your teeth make sure to choose a soft bristled toothbrush - the firm toothbrushes will cause abrasion to your teeth and wear down the enamel and dentin, leaving you with sensitive teeth that are prone to cavities. you can also use a cloth to wash your teeth with, a piece of gauze wetted with hot water. Always use hot or warm water when brushing your teeth - tooth paste isn't important really, it is just nice for freshening your breath. use proper technique in how you brush to improve the longevity of your teeth. for more information you might look up the site for the American Dental Association. my husband worked in the dental field for more than 25 years... that is how I met him, I was an assistant at the time.
