Title: toothpaste and different levels of foam.
Post by: paul.fr on 12/07/2007 11:53:03
when i brush my teeth, i instantly get loads of foam, so much so that i look like a rabid dog. Now, when Anastasia brushes hers. There is no foam at all, why is that?

Are you sure you're using toothpaste & not hair mousse?

Are we assuming that you are using the same type of toothpaste and brushes?

Is this every time? Have you eaten the same food/drink? Perhaps there is a "last drink", say coke or tea which makes the difference?

same brand of toothpaste, yes. But different brushes, although i have made..erm asked [:I] Anastasia use mine and watched how she brushes her teeth, she has the same brushing action as i do...courious.

good question, Kadie. to which the answer is no, she is slower. But, the moment i begin to brush i am awash with the foam, and when Anastasia has finiseh she still has none or very little. which one of us is the odd one?

What about the pressure that one puts on the brush!

 Better yet I bet your mouth produces more saliva then hers and therefore foams up more then hers!
