We have been struggling a bit trying to get Baby-Ko to allow us to brush his teeth. A friend suggested I buy him a toothbrush with Elmo on it–  maybe that would make him more interested in sticking a foreign object in to his mouth.  Well sure enough, her trick worked and now my little man looooooooooves brushing his teeth.  

Ironically, today at the dentist, the hygienist told me that if I don’t start brushing my teeth correctly, my gums would continue to recede. Apparently I’m in a “terrible recession.” (Um, aren’t we all???) She told me that I’m going to be very upset and that my receding gum line is going to make my teeth look long and “very unattractive.” (Thank you. As if this week wasn’t stressful enough. Now I have long teeth. Great.)
So if anyone has any recommendations for good electric toothbrushes, please let me know. And if they have Elmo on it, that would be even better…

    sonicare is the way to go - take it from someone who spends more time @ the dentist that at her therapists.....

    *note the sonicare has proven to make life better at the dentist even though I am there a lot.
