Jiao Jiao often tells me about the way things were when she was younger. There was not much money, they did not have warm water and of course, regular dental treatments might not have existed for anyone and were certainly not common for the lao bai xing (common folk).
Often, I have seen the effects of 80's dental treatment in China, which is teeth stained off brown and looking like they are made of clay. This was the result of some scam which was said to make peoples teeth better. Of course, they do not preform this procedure anymore.
I have been getting my teeth cleaned every six months for as long as I can remember and the longest I have ever gone between cleanings is 1 year. In China, the cost of a cleaning is 200 rmb for pretty nice service. So, I decided that it was time for Jiao Jiao to get her first taste of dental care. You can see how she liked it below.
