The best thing I've ever done in terms of dental 'self care' is switching to an electric toothbrush. I've gone from getting fillings embarrassingly often to not a single one since I made the switch a few years ago. The actual movement of the brush head is of benefit I'm sure, but for me I think it more comes down to the fact that you're slower and more deliberate with your movements so end up being much more thorough. Also the typically small brush head of these things lets you get into all the parts of your mouth. The difference with it for me has been incredible.

Same. I would recommend everyone does this.

Agreed. I wish I'd made the switch sooner. I'd looked upon them as an unnecessary luxury item, but they're not that expensive now and they're not as harsh on my gums as a regular toothbrush.

I can't bear it when I see someone using an electric toothbrush the exact same way as a manual one. Saw some stupid news item about them where they were all doing it and I wished they were all dead.

Sometimes you have to when the battery runs out.

I concur with the leccy toothbrush crew. Also, I floss every day. I neglected my teeth for many years and I'm still paying the price.

Bamba can brush his own bloody teeth.

I can't floss, there's not enough gaps between my wonky teeth.

Yes. I told The Horrible Woman I did, but I hadn't. She knew. She put needles in my gums and got the dremel out.

I turned too sharply in our car park last week and scraped the front bumper of a neighbour's car. Left all my details in a note and when I saw him next he was very decent about it and said not to worry.

Yep. He said it's a small car park and bound to happen as it's so tight swinging around when parking.

I was relieved!

I thought that only showed the MOT status?

Well you can check the tax status of any car if you have the numberplate and make, and you can't get taxed if you're not insured...

There's also a screen to query insurance directly but you have to tick a thing to promise it's your own car or you're legally entitled to make the query so I won't use that one!

Maybe I'll write down my neighbour's numberpate and run it through the checker.

Yeah but that's no guarantee that the insurance is still valid after the initial tax date?

I was just being a cynic anyway, I'm sure your neighbour's car is legit and above board :DD

If he's not insured, get lawyered up and go for a Whiplash claim.

Good job I looked at that link. Put my own car in on a whim and my tax ran out in March. Thanks for the timely reminder letter DVLA!

Have filled in the gov.uk pay tax online form and they aren't even going to take my first payment until the 8th May and it says the DVLA might be in touch about my offence of driving without tax. Doh!
