Brushing your teeth (even flossing) in a public restroom: ok?

I never see anyone do it. Being a guy though, I only see men's restrooms. Maybe it's different in women's. I can't even remember seeing a guy brush his teeth in the restroom, let alone floss. Also, I imagine an office restroom has different oral hygiene etiquette than a restroom at say, the mall -- true?

Ultrasonic toothbrushes: Which has least noise/vibration?

Which ultrasonic toothbrush has the least noise and vibration? This is for my 12-lb dog, who has a correspondingly small head. He's already great about letting me brush with a manual toothbrush, which I do nightly, but still had some periodontal pockets at his recent dental cleaning. I think I can get him to accept an ultrasonic one if I introduce it very gradually, but I want to get the gentlest one possible. Related issues inside. [more inside]

Replacing Sonicare Toothbrush Battery

I own a Sonicare Toothbrush. The battery has now died. Phillips used to replace these toothbrushes for about 75% of their original cost. However, Phillips now has suspended this practice. Would anyone know of a small independent company that would repair my Sonicare by replacing the dead battery? Thanks in advance.

Interdental Toothbrushes

My dentist told me that I should start to use an interdental toothbrush once a day. Are their any particular brands I should look out for or are the generics just as good? Also, any tips when it comes to using one?

Sonicare Vibrates Toothpaste Right Off of It ...

I recently bought a Sonicare. I like how it makes my teeth feel cleaner than they had been, and anecdotal evidence from others suggests it's going to help my gums. But I really can't figure out how the toothpaste works with this thing. [more inside]

Gum trauma causes painful white blister?

About 6 days ago I was brushing my teeth and I jammed the plastic edge of my toothbrush hard against my lower right-hand outside gum. There wasn't any blood, but in the days since, some sort of white blister has developed and is sensitive to the touch. It looks like a short (inch-long) line along my gum where the toothbrush hit. Any ideas how long this will take to go away, and if there's anything I can do to speed that up? Thanks!

Can I put my electric toothbrush in the dishwasher?

Can I put my electric toothbrush in the dishwasher? The bristle is detachable from the powered handle, and the threads collect gunk that I would just as soon power-wash away. The handle seems watertight -- the bristlehead moves via magnets, and the charging element is behind plastic.
