Big dentist is scamming you out of toothpaste and floss!

Part of it is diet. Part of it is genetics. A lot of different factors go into your dental health. It's good that your teeth are in good shape though.

Municipal water fluoridization helps too.

Right? If he's only brushing once a day, why the hell would it not be at the beginning of the day? At least at bed time it's only him and a partner who have to deal with it.

I am 42 and have mostly done as the Op. Very rarely floss and brushing just before bed. When I worked outside I did brush after lunch mainly due to coffee odors. And by thevway I have only been to the dentist once, aged 10

Good genetics. I had a grandpa who never went to the dentist and had all his teeth when he died at 70. My brother too, never had teeth problem. My father only started having issues in his 40s .

I don't think you should be bragging about not visiting a dentist. A dentist is like a doctor, you should be seeing one regularly even if nothing is wrong

Sure. Let's keep the healtcare industrial complex rich

I'm sorry for you

Why would you be sorry for a healthy person who doesnt want to go to a overpaid specialist? In any case I am sorry for you for being brainwashed into thinking life includes regular visits to the doc pluscall kinds of pills

I'm sorry for you that you live in a country where you have to break a bank to see a doctor. Also sorry for being brainwashed into thinking that you have to have something wrong to see a doctor

Brother (or sister), you make zero sense!

You understand that most issues can be diagnosed and resolved before they become real problems? The same with teeth

by Anonymous 9 months ago

Sure, sometimes. I am imagining you every week eagerly going to one of dozen different doctors. I come from one country where people treat their words like gospel. I am not, as you may be thinking, anti science, but lots of things regarding Medicine or Public health make zero sense (recent global events support that)

Lol dentist visits can be very important. Cavities often times can't be seen by simply opening your mouth in the mirror and checking yourself they can be in between your teeth and you'd never know. Leaving them unchecked is very very bad and once you notice the pain it'll be too late and you'll have to get a root canal which is 10x more expensive and 20x more painful than a regular cavity filling or dentist check up. And if you don't go check a root canal then it leads irreversible nerve damage which could make you ultimately go blind or deaf cause everything's connected. And at the very least you won't be able to eat hot or cold food without being in excruciating pain. Lol so just go to the dentist.

Where did you go to dental school?

I think the medical professionals know how to take care of your teeth better than you do. And brushing/flossing is not the only factor in whether you have good dental hygiene. Good if it works for you. Probably won't for most people.

Probably wont work for OP either. He's probably just very young. Most people develop serious dental issues later in life.

Right, and also: poor dental health can apparently lead to Alzheimer's and heart diseases (University of Florida).

Are you 95 and on your death bed? No. Then you don't actually know you will never have problems.

Wait wtf. You only brush your teeth at night????????? Maybe if you said you brush in the morning then go to sleep without brushing and brush again in the morning then ok that's normal but only at night what the hell. You're asleep for like 6-9 hours with your mouth closed yk how much it's going to stink when you wake up there's no airflow. I promise you everyone in your life regards you as the person who's breath stinks it's just no one's told you yet. Lol I can't even say that this is nasty it's just idiotic. If you're going to brush once a day do it before you're going to go out and be in peoples face all day.

Well from a dental care angle (not breath) I've been specifically advised by a dentist to *never* skip the night brushing.

by Anonymous 9 months ago

You know how the saying goes. At night you brush for your self, in the morning you brush for everyone else.
