A few fun facts you probably didn’t know about dental care!

Are you suffering from painful teeth but run out of pain killers?

Why not do like the ancient Chinese. When suffering from tooth ache, these guys usually wrapped their sore teeth in tiny parchments inscribed with hand-written prayers to relieve the pain. Or, if you’re a reincarnate from Germany in the Middle Ages, you may even have tried kissing a donkey to relieve your tooth ache - good luck with that one!

Want to avoid the tooth ache altogether?Why not try getting your hands on the obscure Mexican super-plant Lippa Dulcis. It is 1,000 times sweeter than table sugar and doesn’t cause tooth decay - say hello to guilt-free sweets!
