It's common for people to be hesitant about visiting medical offices in general, but there's something about a dentist's office that particularly fills people with anxiety.
But since our teeth are an important part of our lives and interconnected to our overall health in surprising ways, even the most dentist-averse person will begrudgingly admit to how important their work is.
In recent years, however, a lot of dentists have made the profession seem more approachable and relatable by starting TikTok accounts.
And their presence on that platform has been invaluable because there are a lot more bad ideas that involve people's teeth than we might expect. For this reason, the dentists of TikTok are always quick to warn us about them and explain why they're so harmful.
But sometimes, it's the smallest and most off-hand remarks they make that blow our minds the hardest and that was definitely the case for one dentist who casually dropped an unexpected truth bomb.
