More Farscape species

Dentics are small creatures, comparable in shape and size to leeches on Earth.

Unlike leeches, dentics do not consume blood; rather they feed off the food remnants in the mouths of larger species. As such, a practical and symbiotic use has been found for them. Putting one in the mouth acts to clean teeth as they eat all food and remnants, prevent gum disease and even give a minty breath, thanks to the mint-smelling urine of the creature. They are inedible raw, and possibly poisonous/internally harmful when ingested, but can be eaten when heavily fried; even then they have an unpleasant taste.
