I sure hope ops boyfriend cleans up his act.

I'm sure if he goes back to his old ways, that you would be Crest-fallen.

Sounds like op's fb needs to find the root of his problem

I agree, he really needs to clean up his plaque.

This thread was awesome until the above comment..sorry, but that pun makes no sense!

I feel your pain

'cause you know teaching adults to brush their teeth is an average everyday thing.

Didn't learn good hygiene growing up I take it.

I guess look on the bright side, at least now he knows how to and he'll have minty fresh breath! Hopefully he makes it into a habit though...

is he from another country

im not exactly sure if this is racist or..?

There's a wrong way to do it? It's incredibly intuitive

I'm 26 and just learned last year from my dentist that I've been brushing my teeth wrong all my life. Apparently you're supposed to brush up and down along your teeth, not side to side, in order to get the bristles under your gums. Who knew? I never had a problem with bad breath or yucky looking teeth, because I DID brush twice daily, just not with optimal technique. I did, however, have problems with swollen gums, but my dentist growing up attributed that to not enough flossing rather than incorrect brushing. When you're doing something wrong and no one notices, and thus no one tells you, how are you to know? Perhaps it's something like that with OP's boyfriend, where he does habitually brush his teeth, but he just doesn't have some minor technique down.

49, it doesn't help that dentist's change the technique every once in awhile. It used to be ok to go in circles when doing the front of your teeth but now they find it pushes the gums back so you're supposed to go from the top down. Although the way this post is worded makes it seem like it was a bigger issue than minor technique.

Now he can have a gorgeous smile, like me (:

Let's not get cocky now. Your smile isn't that great.

are you fucking serious?

I can't help but giggle over his profile saying "not a pretty boy"

Another attention whore, the likes of whom would take selfies, saying "So ugly"?

Have a nice day (: -from the vain kid who is narcissistic.

@61 Thanks! I will have a nice day.
