don't get me started on teeth

My current dental hygiene routine has five steps: flossing, brushing, gum pick, rinse, scrape tongue

Scraping one's tongue actually does nothing for the teeth, so I'll drop that one from this list. But I still have four things I'm supposed to do to my teeth, twice a day

The last time I was at the dentist, he wanted me to do MORE. Now I'm supposed to rinse with this colored liquid to see what spots I've missed after brushing, and then REBRUSH

Has the dental establishment gone crazy? I'd just as soon lose the fuckers and eat yogurt and soup the rest of my days than spend that much time narcissizing my teeth!!

I do make a half-hearted attempt to take care of my teeth because my parents scraped and saved money for my sister's and my orthodontia. But I wonder if we aren't losing our perspective when the medical professionals expect us to spend 40 minutes daily coddling babying our teeth. I just don't give that much of a shit

You're quite the adventurous dandy!
