That's all fine and well, as long as you don't breathe anywhere in my direction. Brushing your teeth is not only good for your teeth, but also for
others around you. Once a month is slightly on the light side.
why do you assume I have bad breath? my wife has never complained...
half the reason for bad breath is from food being left in the mouth, behind and between teeth, which is rotting and causing a foul odor.
I remove any food from between my teeth and from harder to reach spots(like behind my wisdom teeth) regularly throughout the day.
come on people.... yes dentistry is a marvel of science and has prolonged out lifes greatly... but its only been the past few decades that we've been
poisoning ourselves with these chemicals.
1,000 years of cleaning without toothpast is proof enough for me that we don't need it.
the chemicals in toothpast is proof enough that I don't want to use it
and honestly, which is worse? years of my alternative cleaning methods which have had little downside, or you using caustic chemicals in your mouth 3
times a day like they tell you too??
don't forget your daily does of fluoride...
ETA the tongue is also a breeding ground for bacteria that causes bad breath.... I scrap mine regularly to avoid halitosis
