You've Got Something On Your Teeth

You may be tempted to celebrate this coming St. Patrick's Day with some green beers, but be careful. The green dye used in that St. Patty's Day pint may turn your teeth green.

A West Virginia-based dentist says he's had many patients come to him after St. Patrick's Day with green choppers.

He says the key to avoiding this problem is to brush your teeth immediately after drinking. Don't fall asleep, or, more accurately, pass out without brushing.

He also advises that drinking through a straw could avoid the problem -- and says it's actually better to chug the beer as opposed to sipping it. That shouldn't be too much of a problem for anyone!
