I know it sounds funny and one might believe that everyone knows to brush and floss and does it, but as hard as it is to believe there are folks out there who do not brush their teeth. This is the saddest case that we see in our office. Brushing (and flossing) daily is such an easy preventative measure that we can take to keep our teeth and gums healthy and thus keep our teeth! If you know of any of the warning signs of periodontal disease such as bleeding gums or bad breath then it is easy to catch yourself falling into a periodontal disease category. Make sure that routine preventative visits are scheduled and that you attend those appointments without fail. They can be the difference between keeping those pearly whites and losing your smile.
Funny but true!
