Snake away your tooth decay!
Blog Guy, I’m coming to you for help because of your background in oral hygiene.
What can I do about those deposits of gristle that get stuck between my teeth after a good meal? I brush weekly, but still some of that stuff won’t go away.
Weekly, huh? Some dentists would say that isn’t often enough. How large is this gristle residue, anyway?
Uh, let’s see. I just pried a piece out with the corner of my keyboard. It’s, oh, about a one-inch cube.
Yeah, see, stuff that size is gonna require a regular snake flossing. Look here at the dude in this photo. He knows that only a writhing reptile can get to those hard-to-reach places, like between his two front teeth.
By using this method, you can cut visits to the dentist down to once every six or seven years.
Wow! I had no idea! I don’t even know what I’ll do with all that extra time!
Well, I can’t promise you it will ALL turn into free time. For example, this fellow winds up in the poison ward of his local hospital about five mornings a week…
