1001 Uses For Dental Floss #7 – Oral Hygiene in Brazil

According to writer D.E. Finley, Brazilians take much better care of their teeth than most Americans (and Canadians too, I suppose, although I don’t have any observational evidence to back up that assumption.) Brazilians seem to spend an inordinate amount of time after each meal flossing their pearly whites, which really are, it seems, exactly that – pearly white. Even public washrooms dispense floss, and dogs in pet shops have their own toothbrushes (which are wielded by their caretakers, not by the dogs themselves) along with poultry-flavoured toothpaste. The only drawback with living there is that with perpetual summer, it’s hard to stay fit enough to squeeze into the Brazilian dental floss swimsuits.
