As with any walk of life, be it an interest of people, or in a health related way such as in this instance, there are always rumours and myths about things that crop up out of nowhere . Perhaps these things start as someone having a joke or saying something foolish, which actually ends up getting passed on as gospel. Who knows?

One thing we do know however, is that over the years, we’ve heard some bizarre things about dental health, crazy falsities and myths that are just simply untrue. Some of them we’ve been able to laugh at because they’re just that ludicrous, while others we’ve had to be more cautious of, because they can actually lead to disastrous consequences.

That being said, here are three of the more commonly heard myths – so if you believe any of these, please let this be the day that you cease to do so.

If you’re someone who takes their dental hygiene seriously (if you’re not then you should be ,) then you’ll definitely be in a routine of brushing your teeth twice daily, typically both in the morning and at night, for two minutes each time.

But one thing that is less common than brushing twice daily but can be equally, if not sometimes more, important, is flossing at least once a day. If you’re someone who doesn’t floss because you don’t see a need to, then you should start as soon as you’re done reading. Flossing is crucial in dental health for a number of reasons, and in this article we’re going to look at three of them.

Though there is one thing you could do to improve that image of yours, and all from the comfort of your home too.

A smile can paint a thousand words.

When you first meet someone your smile is the very first thing they will take in about you, the very first thing they will notice, so it’s important to have a bright beaming smile to reflect your equally bright and beaming personality.

Sadly, for some of us, that’s not such an easy-to-do thing. Some people suffer from misaligned teeth through no fault of their own, and begin to feel self-conscious about smiling. Thankfully though, there is a solution.

If you find yourself getting all shy about your crooked teeth, then check out this list of five reasons to invest in Invisalign – an alternative sort of solution rather than going with traditional braces.

As our children grow up and become more independent, teaching them about dental hygiene is essential. Not only will it help them be more independent but it will also improve their confidence later in life.

A healthy smile influences more than most know. It affects our how we communicate, eat, drink and even our self-esteem. How are you supposed to be confident, when you have trouble expressing your emotions?

Dentists in Atlanta, Georgia  have found that “Older people report that they experienced low self-esteem much of their life because of their teeth. They felt they were born with this type of smile and there wasn’t much they could do.”

Teaching our kids to brush, floss, and see a dentist regularly is extremely important. A healthy smile inspires confidence and a willingness to smile more.
