Worf's Half-Klingon Teeth

Klingons are proud, brutal, and loyal to their cause. Worf gave us the opportunity to experience the Klingon culture up-close and personal, including dental hygiene.


So examining this picture leads one to several possible conclusions:

  1. Klingons take care of their lower teeth, but leave the upper ones "savaged" to scare off their enemies.
  2. Starfleet mandates at least one set of teeth be well-kept and given whitening treatments on a periodical basis.
  3. The ship dentist took a long time to fix Worf's bottom teeth, then looked at his upper set and said, "Oh, forget it."
  4. Paramount low-budget at work.
