1st Ultrasonic Toothbrush - Whitens Teeth In Days, No Chemicals

Ultrasonic cleaning of your teeth - kill stains, bacteria, go far beyond where dental floss can reach

Description: Emmi-dent is the first ULTRASONIC toothbrush. Works motionlessly with its non-abrasive nano-bubble toothpaste to kill bacteria, reduce periodontal disease, and remove stains. As an ultrasonic rather than an electronic toothbrush, Emmi-dent dramatically reduces plaque and periodontal disease. By destroying bacteria, it removes stains from coffee, wine, nicotine and food, returning teeth to their natural white color within days. Teeth whitening involves bleaching, which can hurt sensitive gums and teeth, and costs typically range $100-$1,500, depending on whether you go to a dentist, a non-dentist, or buy strips at a pharmacy. It works under braces, cleaning and removing stains. Users have said that their gums are no longer inflamed, they have less plaque, their teeth are whiter, it is gentle and non-abrasive. After dental reconstruction or any kind of oral surgery, you can brush your teeth with Emmi-dent with no fear of pain, bleeding, abrasion or wear factors. Gentle for children. Emmi-dent cleans gingival pockets that even dental floss cannot reach. It is gentle enough to use immediately after oral surgery, including on implants, avoiding damage to teeth and gums, and is painless on sensitive teeth and gums. Retail price $189.00 at Emmi-dent.com.

4 Reasons To Teach Your Baby To Read, Based On The Book "Raising Confident Readers," By Dr. J. Richard Gentry

Learn more about teaching babies to read in Dr. Gentry's new book.

Description: 1. Zero to age six is when language proficiency develops in the brain. It is during this critical period that many of the neural pathways establishing language proficiency are formed. 2. Early literacy engagement gives your baby an enormous advantage. Spending just a few minutes a day engaging your baby or toddler in literacy activities may give your baby a 32-million-word advantage by kindergarten over children who did not get this exposure. 3. Babies’ brains are uniquely suited to early reading. Babies have special capacity for perceiving patterns and connecting symbols with meaning, which can begin as early as eight months of age. All babies have good recognition memory and novelty preference, so they it's fun for them to look at pictures and word cards with their parents. Perceiving patterns and connecting symbols with meaning is what reading is all about. 4. Babies’ right-brain learning gives them special capacities for reading. Unlike six-year-olds, babies and toddlers likely begin as right-brain readers. Learning to read is work for the six-year-old beginner, but it’s play for babies and toddlers, who pick up reading as easily as they pick up two languages if two languages are spoken by their caregivers between birth and age three.
