Brushing your teeth isn't exactly the most exciting part of the day, but one teen has discovered a slightly terrifying -- er, unique -- way to have somebody else do the work for him.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 13-year-old diver Russell Laman did more than just snorkeling while on a trip to Bali with his father. Imitating the fish around him, the Massachusetts teen opened his mouth while under water, and allowed a shrimp to pick away at his teeth. Watch the shrimp in action in the video above.

"I had watched fish getting cleaned at cleaning stations before and decided to try it out myself," Russell explained to the New York Daily News.

Well, that's one way to get the job done.

What do you think of Russell's attempt to clean his teeth? Would having a live shrimp in your mouth be cool, or creep you out? Tell us in the comments below or tweet @HuffPostTeen!
