Hey there. Anyone have a good reason not to scrape your own plaque with a random metal object?
I had a lot built up behind the bottom of my lower, front teeth, and it always bothers me.
Flossing only cuts it in the middle of the teeth, and even when I wrap the floss around the teeth, it doesn’t get much more.
Admittedly, I haven’t gone to a dentist in years. My last experience was a little humiliating. It was in the Navy, and the person doing the cleaning got all huffy, and stopped halfway into it. She said it was bleeding too much, and to make another appointment.
It didn’t seem to be bleeding any more than any other time, and no other Dentist said anything like that.
Anyway, anyone ever tried doing it yourself?
I even thought about buying the actual scraping tools that Dentists use, but I would probably ignorantly abuse it somehow.
