Washington man gets stunning souvenir with COVID-19 treatment: a $1.1 million bill

So, I'm sure I'll get flak for this, but I've been to the dentist twice in 15 years. I brush my teeth once a day and don't floss.

Both visits in the last 15 years my teeth and gums were perfectly healthy with no cavities. The first visit (about 12 years ago) I decided I had my oral cleaning and health regimen figured out and that I didn't need to do a regular check-up any more.

I don't eat a lot of sugar and I don't drink any soda. I don't drink sweet tea. I eat fast food once a week. I am an American that grew up in the Midwest and now live in the South.

When I brush, I brush for about 5 minutes, thoroughly, at every angle, with enough force to reach in between my teeth. I also have gotten used to reaching deep into all recesses of my mouth to get the very far tucked molars cleaned. After brushing I swish the paste for another 5 minutes while doing other things. Then I spit, gargle with warm water, and spit.

I'm saying all of this in the hopes that it helps someone else out. I know it's probably a kick in the teeth to you at this point, /u/She_is_electric, but maybe a change in diet and regimen can help going forward.

Diet and regimen make all of the difference.
