All this because my husband just saw the dentist, who told him he had some calculus on his teeth–it’s a fancy way of saying “plaque buildup.” He came home and proudly told me he had a comic idea for me. If you think it’s funny, it must be my amazing artistry. If not, I think they must have given my husband some laughing gas.

If you don’t brush enough, you get Differential Equations Disease. After that is Vector Calculus; that’s the point of no return.

If you don’t get rid of the calculus in time, your teeth start to dis-integrate.

It probably means you haven’t been getting enough calcium in your diet – your teeth are calc-less!

Josh, are you assuming the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to take the derivative of the teeth?

Someone in my first calc class brought in a dentistry article about how calculus can cause cancer. The slogan quickly became our catch all excuse for laziness.

The principle resolution for excessive calculus is planing. Really.

I’d just like to mention that that dentist tool looks evil.
