    Oral care

    Yesterday I got too close to someone with halitosis. I tried to take a step back but he was a "close talker" too.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    having a dentist phobia, i dont go nearly as much as a should. i had one tiny cavity that i was told "was too shallow to need Novocaine" so they drilled me without it. i FELT it!!!! he told me it was impossible that i felt it.

    so yeah, if i ever go back to the dentist again...new guy please!

    other than that, i brush, i floss (sometimes) and my teeth are white, non hurting, and firmly implanted in my head.

    My g/f works in a dentist office so she deals with halitosis all the time. I've never knowingly encountered someone with it, though I'd probably know if I did.

    Whatever can go wrong with your teeth I've
    had. The money I've spent on my mouth is
    crazy. I do everything you should and still have
    problems.

    I'm a fanatic when it comes to oral hygiene. I brush and rinse twice a day. I try to floss everyday but it usually happens every other day, twice when I do. Floss goes after brushing before rinse. If my rinse has saccharin or alcohol in it I rinse with water after. My teeth are still yellow like I ate a stick of butter. My teeth disgust me. And, my family genetics are predetermined for shitty teeth. Thanks genetics.

    I'm a dentist. I love the smell of halitosis in the morning.

    had to look up what halitosis is...

    i have encountered this, an older fellow with dentures with a severe case. he couldnt hear well, so he kept leaning in for a closer listen, and i kept leaning back. really got the olfactory going.

    Biggest factor I've found with avoiding cavities (I have a bunch of fillings) is 6 month cleanings. No cavities in past couple years since I've started.
    No soda pop probably helps too.

    Flossing is the key. If there's little pieces of rotting food stuck between the teeth, then bad breath is the result. Another benefit is I haven't had any cavities since I started daily flossing years ago.

    If you want to add flossing to your morning routine, just do it daily for seven days. After you get used to a daily flossing, when you skip you'll be disgusted with your bad breath/taste. It's worse than not taking a daily shower.

    speaking of bad breath, dont even get me started on tonsil stones! those stinky white nuggets, you know? i have very "crypty" tonsils and i've learned how to twist my tongue back there and dig em out. i know its gross, but even grosser to leave them there, because they make your throat smell and taste like dead crabs.

    Tonsil Stones! Is that really what they're called or did you make it up? I've had those things since I was a kid and never knew what they were really called, or if anybody else got them. I can't twist up my tongue to get to them, but I often can work them out with the back/base(?) of my tongue. Or I just use my finger. It's pretty disgusting.

    I am thankful reading this that my only problem is that I am what they call a "caries active" individual and that has historically given my gums fits. Dentists always lectured me on my oral hygiene every visit and floss and rinse lessened the problem only slightly. One dentist bugged me about an electric toothbrush so I got a cheap one to try. Worked wonders so I used it till it died and upgraded somewhat. No more lectures about oral hygiene.

    I haven't been to a dentist since before cancer, though, because I wasn't allowed to during treatment and afterward was too busy paying hospital bills to afford it. I am clear of those now so will probably schedule a visit with my old dentist this summer.

    I used to occasionally get gunk lodged in the back of my mouth that would cause sore throats and other infections, but I always associated that with bouts of sinus trouble. Post nasal drip in particular. Chemo cured that so I haven't had any of those for a few years now.

    I have no teeth, my teeth were so bad and so crooked that braces couldnt even fix them. A dentist even told me in his 25 years practicing dentistry he had only seen one other person with teeth nearly as bad as mine. So, in my early twenties, every tooth in my head was yanked out and I got dentures, so, for the most part, oral care really isint an issue with me.
