Let’s face it, we could all be taking better care of our teeth. If you’re like me, you probably forget to floss every once in a while. Maybe you’ve skipped brushing in the morning so you could get to work on time. Maybe you go for a soda instead of water when you go out to eat. Maybe you’ve got a sweet tooth that keeps you coming back to the candy bowl.
It’s easy to say that you’ll brush and floss daily, but people aren’t perfect. However, keeping your chompers clean means more than just looking nice – good dental health can actually lower your risk of contracting diabetes, heart disease, or even having a stroke. Since February is Children’s Dental Health month, we wanted to spread the word about some of the wider impacts of oral health.
