Statistics show rich people have better oral hygiene than the middle class or below. Not because of health insurance but because of the habits of the lower class.
While lower class only brush once a day, the upper-class brushes at least twice a day and floss. Maybe this goes back to the upper class being taught healthy habits at an early age with the privilege of visiting the dentist as early as their teeth come in. While unfortunately not only do lower class children miss dentist appointments, but many only go to the dentist if there is a problem or major mouth pain.
For adults, I just don’t see money being an excuse here! Baking soda & coconut oil are the best toothpaste, while hydrogen peroxide is the best mouthwash. Then floss at night!
All these items can be found at the 99 cents store or Dollar Tree. So, it can’t be about the money, it has to be about the education.
Did you know that your oral health can offer clues about your overall health — or that problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body? Understand the intimate connection between oral health and overall health and what you can do to protect yourself.
Oral health is also a direct connection with your heart health. Ladies, do you realize messing with yuck mouth men can lead to STDs and bacterial infections? I’m just saying while you’re worried about his package…teeth should be a part of that! Nothing sexier than a beautiful smile!
