Question: I have not brushed my teeth regularly in over 10 years. I do brush but only when I think about it. Is it bad that I do not brush my teeth regularly? They do not hurt and they seem fine. I just get so busy that I forget about them.
Answer: It is advise that a person should brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes. That is only four minutes out of your day brushing. So lets just say that it takes five minute and that adds up to 10 minutes a day. You need to make the time. By not taking proper care of your teeth you have a much higher risk of dental decay, gum disease and lost of teeth. In addition, studies show a link between poor oral health care and over all health care. So please give more thought to your oral and dental health care habits.
