After watching this disturbing video, you’ll be rushing to the bathroom to floss your teeth.
In this video, you’ll see what happens to a person after they haven’t brushed or flossed in a decade, while also smoking regularly and eating Japanese cuisine. In this country, we take dentistry for granted, but clearly other cultures feel differently about it…
According to AWM, it looks like the dentist starts off by knocking out what appears to be a big chunk of the man’s tooth. However, it actually wasn’t a tooth at all, and was instead a massive buildup of tartar and plaque after years of not cleaning.
The Youtube description describes more of what happened:
Morimoto Tamagotchi shows up last visit with a decade of calcite and plaque built up due to authentic Japanese cuisine, smoking, and having never flossed.
Plaque that is not removed can harden into tartar, a hard mineral deposit that forms on teeth and can only be removed through professional cleaning by a dental professional. When this happens, brushing and cleaning between teeth become more difficult, and gum tissue can become swollen or may bleed. This condition is called gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease.
Flossing helps remove debris and interproximal dental plaque, the plaque that collects between two teeth. Dental floss (or dental tape) helps clean these hard-to-reach tooth surfaces and reduces the likelihood of gum disease and tooth decay.
