Mouth Myths!

Mouth Myth:  A Harder Brush Is Better…
Answer: There are many types of toothbrushes to choose from, but the most important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy is to brush longer with a soft brush.

Mouth Myth:  It’s Too late For Braces…
While many people get braces in their youth, bite function and appearance can be improved into your 30s, 40s and beyond. With the many orthodontic treatment options available, adults don’t have to keep an outdated smile.

Mouth Myth:  Have A Baby, Lose A Tooth…
Pregnancy brings many changes to the body. Poor oral health and tooth loss aren’t among them. Having a baby doesn’t have a direct impact on oral health, but the oral hygiene and diet habits of a mom-to-be may.

Mouth Myth:  My Kid Doesn’t Eat That Much Sugar…
