Not to be rude or anything, but has anyone else noticed how bad some locals’ teeth are? I’m not picking on people who have crowded or gapped teeth, but more on the people who have obviously neglected their teeth for a very long time.
I mean, how else can you explain the clumps of hardened and discoloured plaque, the greyish, translucent colour and the brown etched stains not only along the gumlines, but also on the flat surfaces of their teeth?
Okay, when I was young, I hated brushing my teeth. I remember my grandma used to brush her teeth in the bathroom while I hovered over the bathtub to brush mine, but all I did was brush the bath tub faucet w/ my toothbrush to make it seem like I was brushing my teeth too (it sure fooled her! ;)) Of course, ultimately, I had to get all my front teeth pulled cuz they were all rotted with yellow and brown holes, and I eventually learned my lesson.
Nowadays I brush mainly cuz I don’t want to have a mouth full of stains and plaque. That’s a good enough reason for me. But what I don’t understand is, what’s with these people who don’t have good dental hygiene. For one, how do they expect to ever kiss or be kissed???? *blech*
