Dental Hygiene

  1. Hey City,

    So it was about 5-6 years since I went to the dentist, I went today. I was nervous because it had been so long that something was going to be wrong. I thought they would be picking around in there and all of a sudden I was going to feel a sharp pain or something....

    But nope- still cavity free.

    Yet to have a single cavity in my life. And my wisdom teeth had grown in since the last time I went to the dentist and they are perfect- so I get to keep them and avoid a painful recovery.

    So it got me thinking - how does everyone take care of their teeth?

    I brush my teeth atleast two times a day, somedays 3. No mouthwash- fuck that shit its just another step (and I cannot stand the taste of any mouth wash- reminds me of hard alcohol everytime). And floss- well I've never developed a regular flossing routine (but the hygenist reccomended I start- she said there were a couple areas of heavy plaque).

    Just a soft tooth brush- very regular toothbrush no rubber things for massaging or anthing crazy like that. And some Crest Citrus Splash toothpaste- fruit flavored toothpaste is amazing, I hate that minty gel shit- makes me want to vomit first thing in the morning.

    O yea, and I stay away from soda and candy as much as possible.

    Thats about all I've done to take care of the chompers the past few years.

    I don't want filings, or crowns, or dentures or anything like that.

    It'd be awsome to keep all my teeth till the day I die.

    So again- whats your dental hygiene like?

    Never had to have braces or anything like that.

    I did have sealents put on the teeth more towards the front of my mouth when I was around 12 or so though
  2. I've never had a cavity either. I'm sick. You're sick. Hurray for brushing our teeth! I used to brush 'em 2 times every single day no matter what. I sometimes only brush them in the morning now though.
  3. I brush my teeth now, but back in the day, hardly ever. I got a few filled cavitys, but since Ive been brushing I havent had any.
  4. My dad is a dentist, so My dad would shit a chicken if I didn't brush and floss at least twice a day, I still do... cept flossing, i only do that at night.
