brush my gums until "they bleed! and when they start bleeding, DON'T STOP!"
is this not horrible malpractice?
or did you go to an english speaking dentist? he might not have any qualifications, but he's fluent!
ahem, but erm, doesn't brushing your gums make them stronger or something?
have the start of trench mouth. and need to get rid of the plaque and tartar and that.
she said there was nothing wrong but that
'vigorous brushing is a very good idea.'
when i asked what exactly 'vigorous' was, she said 'until they bleed'.
if they bleed you'll get infections. she probably wanted to give you aids.
because of the wanting your gums to bleed thing. obviously a lady dentist wouldn't want you to bleed and she'd probably be really nice and talk to you at length about the origins of the tooth fairy.
of his last day of working as a chef in a restaurant he hated.
he was making a casserole and he poured his filled-up ashtray into the mixture before blending it together.
he didn't stick around to witness the carnage..
it means you like hard-fi
"Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gums (gingiva) around the teeth. Gingivitis may be caused by a build up of plaque and tartar due to improper cleaning of teeth, or by injury to the gums from over-vigorous brushing. "
you have to get the balance RIGHT.
and forget to do anything about it for a while, i have to brush until my gums bleed, and it builds up their tolerance and stuff
i brush my teeth!
and don't have gum disease!
and don't have plaque!
HOWSABOUT A LITTLE BLIND FAITH?
see? i'm doing the blind faith thing RIGHT THERE.
maybe she didn't want to hurt my feelings and gave me this advice whilst pretending nothing was wrong.
positive enough to show them all
when I had swollen gums. Brush till they bleed, and then for added kicks I had to swill hot salty water around my mouth.
to do the same, after he removed loads of calcium build-up from my teeth, something that resulted in a bloody mess. However, my teeth are really nice now. Just do it.
I always brush my teeth well, floss but, they bleed really easly.. WHY oh why
and ask. Usually it stems from excess calcium "growth" near the gums that cause tiny infections which in turn make your gums bleed like a bastard. Apparently.
a preventative measure.
like using the pill to prevent pregnancy i should just brush my teeth til they bled to prevent crazy gum stuff.
which is just wrong, isn't it?
I wouldn't, if I was you.
she has funny teeth anyway.
they're all big and yellow. yeah.
has perfect teeth, never had a filling or anything. No wonder he attacks mine with such glee; he doesn't know the PAIN.
Anyway, just use a toothpick and slide it between all your teeth twice per day.
those braces i had were expensive.
apparently i wasnt brushing the top of my gums properly, so needed to do it 'vigourously'. he said it would probably bleed. and it did. like the smoosh girls gavinas after i was through with them
I brush my gums until I cry and then I brush some more and then there's blood everywhere and everyone thinks I'm a vampire but it's ok because NO PLAQUE.
