Why oh why oh why is it necessary for there to be a bajillion different kinds of toothpaste? They cover an entire wall of my local Walgreens. It's nuts.

Once upon a time, there was Crest, Colgate, and some weird Swedish concoction called Vademacum(?). I always preferred Crest, because it didn't make my eyes water. Now I have to decide between flouride, whitening, sensitive gum, breath freshener (or any conceivable combination of those), and an absolutely crazy selection of flavors. AND all those things are available in about 20 different brands.

And of course, there is a bizarre array of freaky-looking toothbrushes.

I believe in dental hygiene, but for cryin' out loud. Who knew it could be so stressful? What if I make the wrong choice?
