Do electric tools that clean someone's teeth work better or worse than old-fashioned scraping?  The modern tools don't take much time and seem worse.

Both work well: The ultimate goal is to remove all deposits on the tooth and root surface. They both work well when used properly and the clinician is diligent.

Do battery toothbrushes work better than regular?

Do battery toothbrushes work better than regular?

Studies say no: A properly used toothbrush will perform equally good as an electric brush. That being said, an electric toothbrush aimed properly is likely easier to use for some patients, especially those with dexterity problems.

Are expensive shoes needed for person getting back into exercise?

Are expensive shoes needed for person getting back into exercise?

No: If you're just getting back into exercising, start with walking or low-impact aerobics. You'll need a good, basic athletic shoe, which shouldn't break your bank account.

Are all condoms created equal or are more expensive ones better?

Are all condoms created equal or are more expensive ones better?

NO! : Great question! in this case, more expensive is not necessarily better. Latex is cheap and is the best protection against std's, including hiv. However, natural lambskin condoms "feel like you're wearing nothing at all" and are safe for latex-allergic people.

Hiv virus stay how long in sharp instrument e.G razor blade?

On the other hand, if you are using a sharp implement previously used by somebody with HIV disease (which is not smart), and it has fresh blood on it, this can well transmit HIV if you then cut yourself. This entire scenario is quite improbable. If you get HIV it is from sex or exchange of intimate body fluids like blood through shared needles. ...Read more
