Thats the word from cosmetic dentist Dr. Lee Gause, who says the popular gold grills are a dental hygiene nightmare.
Says Gause: The grills are causing a frenzy with the American Dental Association. They cause cavities, gum disease, gingivitis and really bad breath.
Despite the oral effects, Gause believes grills will become even more popular due to their iconic connection with hip-hop and popular celebrities.
Gause explains, Grills show off ones wealth and are very trendy. Even grandmas sport gold grills once in a while.
Gause adds that grills are harmful if theyre left in the mouth for long periods of time but dont cause as much damage if theyre removable and worn sparingly like Flavor Flav does with his choppers.
Gause suggests grill-wearers always take out their bling before eating and floss and brush their teeth constantly.
In his words, Those worried about having ice in their mouths should really be concerned with having hot breath.
