In the states, we spend insane amounts of money making sure our teeth sparkle and stand unnaturally straight. In fact, the money we spend in toothpaste alone could finance a small European country. Lexumbourg perhaps.
Dental care looks a little different in the Sudan. I haven’t seen any dental floss for sale yet... but I see toothbrushes everywhere. In fact, they grow on trees!
To be more precise... they are trees.
I haven’t decided yet if they are oversized toothpicks or ingenious flaky bristle pads for your teeth! But they are fun.
I’ve watched some people clean their teeth with sticks 2 1/2 feet long. Somehow it works. I’m not sure how well it works on halitosis but hey... at least the crusty yellow teeth gunk is gone.
