‘Mad Men’s’ Jessica Pare Talks Teeth

November 1st, 2010

For you avid “Mad Men” watchers out there, it no doubt came as a surprise that Don Draper (Jon Hamm) proposed to his secretary Megan Calvet (Jessica Pare) in this season’s finale.

ABCNews.com chatted with Jessica Pare and asked her about her somewhat large teeth:

What was that all about — the throwaway line about your bad teeth?

I think it’s a moment where it’s sort of intimate between the two of them. She’s being open and vulnerable and he is asking her about her evening. It’s something that bothered her.

Do your teeth bother you?

I rarely think about them, although it’s happened before that I get comments and that, of course, makes me self-conscious. But I never get anything stuck in my teeth!

All we can say is “Bravo Jessica!” She obviously takes very good care of her pearly whites and has a healthy oral care routine.

It’s important to brush and floss regularly to avoid getting food particles stuck in your teeth. These food particles can become plaque and eventually tartar than can lead to gum disease.

Check out TheraBreath’s complete line of PerioTherapy to keep gum disease at bay.

After all, you have to see this person on a daily basis and you don’t want to seem mean and hurt anyone’s feelings.

So how do you get the message across?

Well, you can do things like offer a stick of gum or a mint – but this will get old fast and what if you don’t have any handy? Read the rest of this entry »

It’s that time of year again. The weather is getting cooler, school is back in session and Halloween is just around the corner. To most children Halloween means dressing up, Trick-or-Treating and enjoying various chocolate-covered and sugar crusted goodies.

This influx of sugar can definitely wreak havoc on teeth, leading to more cavities and high dental bills.
