Katy Perry - Katy Perry Brushes Her Teeth Six Times A Day

Picture:

Katy Perry brushes her teeth six times a day.

The 27-year-old 'Part Of Me' singer apparently keeps 20 brand new toothbrushes close at hand because she is so scared of getting fillings.

A source close to Katy told the Daily Star newspaper: ''We won't go anywhere without a stack of brushes.

''When she was a kid she had 13 cavities. So she now brushes her teeth six times a day.''

Katy - who split with Russell Brand after just 14-months of marriage in December - previously revealed her tooth-cleaning obsession was inspired by Britney Spears.

In an interview with YouTube, she confessed: ''I brush my teeth all the time. I wanted them to be, like, Britney Spears white. I used to grow up seeing her music videos and be like, 'What does she do? Does she get a new set of teeth all the time? They're so white'.

''I'm really anal about that because I like good breath. A turn off for me with guys is, like, halitosis ... I'm the kind of friend that's like, 'Stick a piece of gum in your mouth, because I'm going to save some friendships for you'.

''I'll brush my teeth (after) breakfast, lunch and dinner ... I did have 13 cavities at one time, so you can imagine why I'm so freaked out. When I was a kid I didn't really go to the dentist a lot ... and when I finally went, they were like, 'You might as well get a new set of teeth'.''

I hope Katy isn't using fluoridated toothpaste every time she brushes. Some fluoride always gets ingested either from involuntarily swallowing and through absorption into the bloodstreamToo much fluoride damages bones and jointsA 52-year-old American (New York) man’s arthritic-like joint pain and immobility went away after he stopped brushing his teeth with fluoridated toothpaste, according to a study in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research There’s no scientific dispute that large fluoride doses cause crippling skeletal fluorosis over time. But, “less well-known causes of chronic fluoride toxicity include fluoride supplements, certain teas and wine and some toothpastes,” report researchers Kurland, et al. Skeletal fluorosis often results in abnormal bone hardening and thickening (osteosclerosis) with painful and impaired neck and spine mobility, spine curvature, and/or painful lower extremities ultimately causing crippling and incapacitation, report the researchers. In this case, the only obvious fluoride exposure was toothpaste. The patient drank no fluoridated water, tea or wine; had no occupational fluoride exposure; did not chew tobacco, inhale snuff, cook with Teflon pots, use fluoridated mouthwash or get fluoride treatments at twice-yearly dentist visits. But he brushed before and after all meals (minimum 6 times daily) with fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride was elevated in his serum, urine and iliac crest (bone), the researchers report. Within 8 months of eliminating all obvious fluoride sources, the patient’s urinary and blood fluoride levels dropped and bone function markers showed clear cut improvement,
