    I'm just afraid that anything that will stain a sink and toothbrush bristles gray will also do the same to my teeth.

    CRYOTHERAPY! I see a lot of these places opening up lately. You stand in a bin filled with freezing nitrogen gas. It's supposed to give you mild hypothermia to treat pain and skin conditions.

    I'm taking a calculated risk to achieve easy modern tooth whitening. No one cares what color the back of my teeth are, only the parts people see, which is all I'm concerned about.

    Are you positive that you’re not getting micro bumps and dents... Nope, not positive. They taught me religious zealotry instead of practical knowledge. It's an awesome system, no worries. Hundreds of millions of parents can't be wrong.

    And I've done cryo just once. -270 Fahrenheit for 3 minutes in underpants, just to prove my manhood or what not. I suppose this is relevant for athletes with severe muscle strain, but for those who work out for just two hours every week? Not so useful. If I was desperate to impress people here, I'd show you the picture.

    Baby Yoda toys that come with a frog for him to eat. There's even a gearshift knob for him to teethe on.

    Intolerance is a major issue for people on the spectrum. It can be any kind of intolerance.
    Products that, over time, remove the top layer of the teeth might leave people with hot/cold intolerance. They won’t worry about the color of the teeth, then.

    Dental health insurance isn’t something available to everyone and once you have intolerance, you are required to use more expensive products because cheap ones won’t help. The take here is that advice can be harmful if it’s too subjective.

    It’s not risky. It carves the tooth enamel, leading to erosion. Your background is irrelevant. There is current research and data on the internet, provided by approved websites. I’m sure you can find articles on mayoclinic, healthline and so on.

    So that's how those things work! I'd only ever seen them as part of the Red Green Show.

    Helpful public announcement: Working out successfully can't possibly ever consist of a single body motion, as above, your body needs a wide variety of motions to become stronger and fitter.

    Edit: Running and other cardio might be an exception, but alone? Even these aren't a full workout routine.

    Did the cryotherapy help at all? I am getting over cancer, and in significant pain. If it works, I'd be willing to do it. But if it's just freezing cold and uncomfortable, I'll save my money.

    Amish Bicycles. They're not allowed to ride bikes with pedals (too modern), so they created these scooter/bike hybrids. Amish adults and children ride them to get from point A to point B. I imagine it would be quite impractical to hitch up a horse and buggy every time you want to go somewhere. They look sort of handy. I actually want one.

    It helped me prove to my tough-guy cousin that I could withstand extreme cold like a man, just like him. Plus a cool picture. One time ever. True athletes experience severe muscle strain from their extreme workout routines, but I don't see how cryotherapy would be useful to anyone else. Your situation appears different, so resorting to narcotics might be more useful then cryo, IMO. I'm not an expert on this topic. Hope this helps...

    Now Esa might put me in check for daring to suggest narcotics for a recovering cancer patient. But sometimes, one must resort to extremes.

    That thing looks like it'll scrape hardcore if you try to go over a large speedbump.

    LOL..true, but if I had to guess I'd suspect speedbumps aren't something you're likely to encounter on roads dominated by Amish communities. Image going over a speedbump in a horse-and-buggy, even at very slow speeds. Nope-nope-nope.
