    Twice a day, sometimes more if they feel tacky. I don't use mouthwash because it's too strong for me and gives me mouth ulcers, but I do use TePe brushes. Go to the dentist about twice a year.
    Had braces for about 3 years and I blame that on sucking my thumb when I was a kid. Now I don't seem to be too bad at all, only have the one filling.

    Twice a day, maybe more... depends if I'm going out or something.

    Do you use mouthwash/rinse?
    Sometimes but not always.

    Do you floss/use Tepe brushes to get in between your teeth?
    Not very often.

    How often do you visit the dentist?
    Every 6 months or so, though I'm overdue... No more free appointments so I'm reluctant to go unless there is pain lol how terrible.

    Do you have any problems with your teeth, and do you blame them on earlier neglect of your teeth?
    Nope, not really. Had a couple of grooves in my back teeth filled but that's it. Dentist said my teeth are 'otherwise perfect' :ninja: despite not seeing a dentist until I was 16.

    Mouthwash when we have it.
    Nope.
    Not often, not any more than twice a year.
    I used to have braces, didn't wear my retainer after and now my front two teeth are squint again. Apart from that, fine.

    I brush twice a day

    I do NOT use mouthwash, I heard it can give you cancer (yes i believe it does)

    I floss once a day

    I visit the dentist 1 a year

    I have a few fillings and yes it was neglect when I was younger I use to eat so much sugary sweets like Jawbreakers, straws that had sugar in them, Nerds, Starbursts, cola bottles, Skittles etc. :o:

    My teeth now are in good condition and I have stopped eating sweets.

    I brush after breakfast, lunch and just before I go to sleep. If I don't my mouth feels weird and I can taste stuff in my mouth. I also brush just before I go out somewhere (unless it's really close by). I don't use floss and use mouthwash if I can't be bothered to brush my teeth before I go out.

    Once or twice a day, depends if I feel tired at night or not. I tend to forget in mornings too, when I have to rush to get to college once in a while.

    No teeth problems. Theyre pretty strong.

    I always brush after breakfast and last thing at night, and if I'm going out or meeting up with people I'll brush them then too.

    I go through phases with mouthwash, and don't bother with floss or anything like that.

    I visit the dentist and the hygenist twice a year. Also used to have to go to the orthodontist - braces.

    I've got no problems besides wisdom teeth growing in, haha sob Although I'm rather glad I've got no fillings, had nothing out, etc, it does mean I'm extra scared about the idea of having anything done!

    Twice, and I go to three times a day for 3 days before every orthodontist and dentist appointment.

    Do you use mouthwash/rinse?

    Yep.

    Do you floss/use Tepe brushes to get in between your teeth?

    Can't cos of my braces, but I use the Tepe brushes to clean under the wire. When I get my braces off this Wednesday, I will return to flossing though.

    How often do you visit the dentist?

    Last time was about 2 years ago. I confess I've kinda been using my orthdodontist as my dentist seeing as I visit him so often

    Do you have any problems with your teeth, and do you blame them on earlier neglet of your teeth?

    Well I have braces, but that's because my teeth grew at funny angles, not because I neglected them. I also have bits of my teeth missing due to wear, again due to the way my teeth grew, but the braces have resolved that apparently I have no fillings whatsoever, and hope I never do!
