Vitamin enhanced toothpaste

We all brush our teeth, well I hope we all do. How about tooth paste that is enhanced with vitamins? As you brush it gets absorbed through the oral membrane. Or toothpaste that is full of caffiene. Why waste 20 sleepy mins in the morning while the coffe brews when you can get your fix right after the morning squirt?

       Fluoridated toothpaste has been around for a long time, and they're still arguing over whether it helps any. (I concede that is a mineral rather than a vitamin, but same difference in terms of ingestion.)

       <i> they're still arguing over whether it helps any.</i>   

       They are? Dentists and oral surgeons aren't. There is some question about how much good flouride does for adult teeth, but the benefits for developing teeth are very clear.

       //they// could be anyone. I'll argue about anything.

       I read a study recently that showed a possible benefit to brushing with vitamin C. My reaction was - you put ascorbic *acid* on your teeth? Who thought *that* would be a good thing to try? Now I see it baked in toothpaste. Maybe they use some other form of vitamin C.

       I just rub a gram of cocaine onto my gums every morning instead of brushing, or coffee. Sorts me right out!

       If you brush your teeth with garlic even plaque won't stick around.   

       What is this brushing teeth that everyone is talking about? Meh...

       What "oral membrane"? Isn't that something that exists in embryos before development of a mouth, or for that matter, the ability to brush one's teeth.
