More Dental Health Month Celebrating!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  Cam and I posted just recently about Dental Health Month, but it's just so important that we are banding together with some of our Blogville buddies to show you how we brush!

As you may recall from that last post, our brushes were looking a bit ... worn.

"How did my blue one get so messed up?"
"Not a clue, Cam ..."

Do we care about that? Heavens, no.

"Still plenty of life left in this baby, Mom!"

Yep.  The purple one is mine and the blue one is Cam's.  The blue one has a bit set of bristles on one end and smaller ones on the other end.  I'm pretty sure I know why - but let's say it with a video, shall we?  Here is a SHORT vid of Cam having her teeth brushed.  I have a cameo role.

If for some reason that doesn't work, you can click here to view it on Flickr.

OK. So ... Mom put new toothbrushes for us on the shopping list. She really prefers the kind for little bipeds because they have soft bristles, fit easily into our mouths, and they're easy for her to hold. Dad was the one out doing the hunting and gathering and ... well ...


I won't say I refuse to use the ones with the princesses on them, let's just say I thought Cammie should have those ones. Ahem.

"I like the pink princess one!  And poultry toothpaste!  Not that minty stuff, please!"

See? I knew she'd like that one.

We are very good about tooth brushing! Our breeder started us off right, so we were used to having our mouths handled from an early age. Mom said it's one of the many things our breeder and her daughter did for us that are paying off in spades now. I don't know about that, I just know I'm ready for my turn!!!

"That's not one of those princess ones, is it?"

I get to use one of the cool ones with stars and stuff! Awesome!  And the minty toothpaste!

"Dis ish greant, Mom!"

We were done before I knew it!

"All done, Mags!"
"Can't we load it back up and do some more?"

Regular brushing helps to reduce dental disease, bad breath, and even heart and kidney disease! We try to brush our teeth every day - we hope our post will encourage you to give it a try if you don't already do it! Try it -- it's fun and the canine toothpastes are SO TASTY!!!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  12. Oral health, in other words, is about more than cavities and clean white teeth. Oral health is about the
    diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases, including dental caries, periodontal disease, temporomandibular
    joint (TMJ) disorders, soft tissue injuries and oral cancer. from http://www.westairdriedental.com/general-
