ZAZ: the jail was examining safe alternatives to dental flossMy dentist suggested a gadget that sprays water jets between your teeth. They gave me one, which I assume had been given to them as a sample by a salesman. I don't know what they cost.Cheaper to have inmates floss in front of guards.

Old_Chief_Scott: FTFA:"Besides being in this facility, I've been in several facilities throughout New York state prisons," Gomez said."All the facilities that I've been in sell dental floss," he continued.Classy that he is so concerned about dental hygiene.

HotIgneous Intruder: This is pretty farking funny until you have a relative in prison. Then the loss of human rights and proper basic health care gets real.Celiac disease? Here, have this white bread sammich or don't eat.
PirateKing: Well, they did pluck all day and all night and all afternoon, while riding a small tiny horse (his name is Buddy Little.)/has a cat who among his many names is known by Buddy Little.

ExcaliburPrime111: Just because convicts have (usually, perhaps always) committed a crime to end up in prison, does not mean they lose all rights. Having proper dental care is among those rights, and I see no reason with either using an easily broken floss that they can use, or of at least giving them the option to floss in front of a guard who can then ensure that the floss is disposed off and is not used in the making of contraband.It will cost less in the long run, in terms of dental care bills to the state, and preserves the human rights of prisoners.
