New Uses

New Uses and Tricks for Dental Stuff (and quick fixes too!)

Let’s just pretend that you ALWAYS use your floss, mouthwash and the toothpaste you purchased at Costco that tasted oh so terrible.  And, you would never need any other use for them :)

In the event that you run into a household emergency, feel free to use these dental household hacks.


  • Cutting a cake (don’t use mint floss!)
  • Tie up an elf on the shelf
  • Stake a Tomato Plant


  • Ew, yes!  Please save us and DO NOT post these before and after photos.damaged feet

Plastic Cups

  • These small, cheap cups are great for keeping babies and toddlers busy.  They are interesting, they stack, make noises when you squeeze them, safe to chew on and most of all they keep a child amused for the entire dental appointment!


  • Spread a thin layer on POISON IVY to help it dry out.  Great for camping or any other time you are unprepared!


  • Hang frames on a wall!  Place toothpaste on the back of the frame where the nail goes.  Press frame against the wall. Bam!  You have your markings!
