No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke! You might be at greater risk of cavities if you work from home. Here’s why.
You wake up, hop in the shower, throw on some lounge clothes, and turn on the coffee machine. You sit down to your computer and start reading your emails. Maybe you even have to get the kids out the door or started on school before you can start work. Aside from your family, your partner, or your roommates, you might not see anyone else in person today.
And you don’t have time to brush your teeth. Or maybe you’ll just do it really fast so you can get on with your day. Nobody’s going to see your teeth up close, after all.
If this sounds like your morning routine, consider spending a couple more minutes on your teeth. Your smile is with you for life, after all! Brush for at least two minutes twice a day on all sides, using fluoride toothpaste. Floss daily, and schedule your six-month cleanings so we can get everything you can’t at home. You’ll leave here with shining teeth, a more confident smile, and a plan to keep it in shape, whether with tips or with treatment that will restore or improve it.
