Man On 'Embarrassing Bodies' Didn't Brush His Teeth For 20 Years

When you're a kid, it's was impossible to get psyched about a bath, or a shower, or brushing your teeth, we just wanted to jib it off.

Whereas now, the thought of skipping a wash is revolting. Couldn't do it.

This guy clearly never grew out of skipping these formalities.

At the age of 21 he hasn't brushed his teeth in 20 or so years, and that, grouped with a poor diet has completely ruined them.

It doesn't help that going to the dentist is ridiculously nerve racking for a lot of people. Some geezer thrusting metal into your mouth, getting his fingers right in there and shouting out numbers isn't a great way to spend an afternoon.

He was never encouraged to brush his pearly whites when he was young and so he's never really been fussed about them, but obviously his lack of confidence got to him.

He went on Channel 4's Embarrassing Bodies to get them sorted, and the doctor, unsurprisingly, told him that he needs to change his lifestyle if his newly fitted teeth are to survive.

Makes you want to brush your teeth 17 times a day, doesn't it?

It's nice to say that he had new veneers fitted, had a shave and a hair cut and low and behold, he looked pretty good.

The lesson here is don't not brush your teeth for 20 years, which seems like something that is blatantly obvious.
