Had a dental appointment this morning. I usually have a moment or two of stress over my dental appointments because I'm not a flosser. My back teeth are so close together I have a hard time getting floss between them. And I usually end up gagging myself which is not something I enjoy. So I don't generally floss. (I do have one of those Reach flosser thingymajigs which helps some, but I still end up having to bite the thing to get the floss between my back teeth.) Luckily the gaps between my front teeth are big enough for brush bristles.
That said, the hygienist said, "there's hardly any tarter." And what was there was way in the back where I have a hard time reaching with ANY toothbrush because -- hello! -- my jaw gets in the way. Every six months I go and have that bit of ick scraped off.
So, thank you to my Sonic Care toothbrush. Without you, dear vibrating toothbrush, I'd have to sit in that darned dentist's chair for way longer than the 20 minutes I do now.
