For most of us, brushing our teeth is a part of our daily routine. It’s one of the first things we do when we wake up, and one of the last things we do before going to bed.
As a result, most of us can’t even imagine going a day without brushing our teeth. I mean seriously, nobody wants to be the person with bad breath – and there are other health related reasons why brushing your teeth should be at the top of your priority list.
Welp, one guy is learning all about the importance of dental hygiene after neglecting it for 20 years.
Recently, the British TV show, Embarrassing Bodies, covered the story of a 21 year old man named Jay who hasn’t brushed his teeth in 20 years – AKA never brushed his teeth in his damn life.
As you can imagine, his mouth was pretty gross, and it’s a miracle that he isn’t suffering from any long term health complications.
Fortunately for Jay, dentists were able to remove the rotted teeth from his mouth and replace them with implants. Hopefully he takes better care of these teeth than he did his original ones, because if not this happy ending could quickly become a bad one.
Moral of the story folks, don’t go 20 years without brushing your teeth. But I sincerely hope you didn’t need anyone to tell you that. VIA
