Silly Sayings, A Fake sRecipe And A Startling Stat
Did you know that a startling 95 percent of oral disease doesn’t cause any pain at all? Yet it can cause damage to your tissue, jawbone and teeth. That’s an astounding stat, and it’s one of the things we told you about on social media this week.
Also, we gave you a tongue-in-cheek recipe for at-home tooth whitening with the twist ending that you should toss it all away and go see one of our San Diego dental hygienists instead.
And for some reason, we shared three silly saying with you that are intended to drive home a point. Here’s a quick look at them:
· Lying through your teeth doesn’t count as flossing. We realize that one’s a bit nasty, but we aren’t really talking about you. It’s just a saying that someone thought was funny – or at least mildly clever.
· It’s all fun and games until you need a root canal at 21. The admonition here is to take some personal responsibility for your actions – and you can have healthy teeth that last a lifetime.
· Not taking dental x-rays is like trusting there’s no brown in your avocado. Much of dental disease happens inside the tooth, so we can’t be sure your teeth are healthy at a glance – and instead we need to see inside with an x-ray.
You see, we say silly things on social media all the time, but we take our work of dealing with oral and dental issues for our patients very seriously. Nothing is more important than good oral health that leads to good overall health and a long, healthy life. It really is possible when you start with getting and keeping your mouth as clean and healthy as possible. May we at Brighton Dental be part of your dental future?
