tooth and toothbrush - tooth and toothbrush
Toothpaste is not toothpaste my son and his wife learned that the hard way. They tried a new toothpaste the promotes that it whitens teeth first my daughter-in-law(dl)had an ulcer in her mouth she didn't take much notice at first but then she got more and more she asked the chemist and he gave her something which didn't work,my son started getting ulcers then dl got an abscess on a tooth which required medical attention before she could go to the dentist my son started getting toothaches then he got an abscess,they could not work out what was going on their doctor went through so many tests and asked another doctor for advice.Eventually when the abscess went down dl went to the dentist he could find nothing wrong with her teeth she told him what had been happening to her and my son so he called my son in .after much discussion back and forth between the doctor and dentist and heaps of tests and much more pain for both with more ulcers and abscesses for both the dentist had a couple of other patients with the same complaints they finally worked out it was the toothpaste. the results were almost immediate once they stopped using that toothpaste.It just goes to show toothpaste is not toothpaste

No I don't believe in what the adverts say about products. I like some of the adverts but I don't let them sway me. If I see a product I think I'm going to like, then I'll try it once, and if it suits me, I'll stick to that particular products. Adverts won't sway my decision.

Yes and I also believe in the sugar plum fairy, the entrance to Narnia is at the back of my wardrobe and Scotland are going to win every sporting event there is !!! lol No I don't honey think they are so false and I don't even like most of them! The kids on the other hand think everything they see on adverts is categorically true and wonderful! Oh to be less cynical ...

No i don't buy toothpastes or for that matter anyhting just because of adverts. Infact i don't watch adverts as mush as possible unless i am watching favouirte cricket or tennis match and even then i switch channels as they irirtate the hell out of me. I just buy toothpastes that i have using for a while and am satisfied with it like many others i know and also that fits my budget.

gabs, you should look on the 'net for a short video produced by 'Dove' it's the campaign for real beauty or something and it shows (in a fast time-lapse way) how those shopped images are made, from a pretty but plain girl sitting in front of the camera through make up and editing to being distorted and put on a billboard poster. I couldn;t recommend this enough, too many girls and women suffer poor self images and should see this. (sorry about bad grammar - in a hurry to go home - see time!!!)

Difinitely no! Commercial models on teeth was underwent to dentist spa. It a way to make us believe that toothpaste they were promoting is great and guaranteed.Consumer will buy. Because they attracted the product. Thus they will patronize to buy.

Sometimes I take it as a good products without using it and sometimes not. I think these adverts are for selling as much as they can anyway so they will promote as much as they can no matter how good/bad it is..lol I agree with how you feel like....can't really tell just seeing it :)

Adverts are designed to make you buy a product, They have to be reasonably truthful with their claims, but a lot of them are 'Economical with the Truth', and never tell you the whole story, or for that matter any drawbacks with their product. Some adverts are better than others.

Nope! I don't believe in anything that adverts tell us since they seem to want to tell us anything so long as it gets us to try their products. I prefer to rely on recommendations made by family and friends who've actually tried the products.

No i take everything as just publicity, I feel if their products are so good they would do better by giving out samples which I have ended buying after given some, I feel thats confidence in a product.
