A client had called indicating her gums were bleeding, looked discolored, and had an odor that her boyfriend had complained about for some time. The client stated that she rarely brushed her teeth and never flossed. Come to find out this type of careless dental hygiene is not uncommon according to some recent studies.
“How one knowingly can eat and drink without cleaning up afterward is beyond me” said Dr. David Blunt. “We live in a day and age where one can buy a toothbrush and floss for pennies on the dollar and that far out weighs the cost one incurs at the local dental office.”
Studies have suggested that individuals believe they are too busy to stop for 2-3 minutes which can greatly improve their dental health and that beautiful smile. Consider the two-minute mouth routine which includes mouthwash which helps reduce bacteria in your mouth and tooth decay. Be sure to visit your dentist every six months for a professional teeth cleaning. Generally the cost for this service is under $50 unless you have neglected your teeth.
