Astronaut William McArthur is brushing his teeth in the middeck of Space Shuttle Atlantis during STS-74. Dental hygiene is basically the same as on Earth. To the left, McArthur's personal hygiene kit can be seen fixed to a middeck locker. The kit contains the personal hygiene items every astronaut chooses to take with him. Personal preferences, such as the brand of toothpaste, are accommodated if possible.
