Life isn't fair. I floss on a daily basis, sometimes several times a day. I keep dental floss in the downstairs bathroom, one in my purse, and one in our bedroom. I brush my teeth in the mornings and in the evenings. At times, when I feel like my mouth needs to taste fresh, I brush my teeth again.
Hubby and Moe don't believe in flossing, especially Hubby. I try to be a good mother. I remind Moe he should brush his teeth before going to bed, but he rarely does. Hubby almost never brushes his teeth in the evenings. I encourage them to floss and bought the disposable plastic flossers. They're collecting dust, just taking up room in the medicine cabinet.
And then I go to the dental office and they find a few cavities and some tartar buildup! Hubby and Moe have their dental checkups and they hardly have no tartar! Moe has one cavity and the dentist complimented them for keeping their teeth in great condition! And Hubby has no cavities! Hubby believes that brushing your teeth too much wears off the enamel from your teeth, which leaves your teeth susceptible to cavities. He also believes that flossing encourages tartar buildup.
Is there a dental conspiracy? Or is Hubby and Moe flossing and brushing their teeth on the sly? You be the judge.
