Men Can Impress Women With A Healthy Mouth!

Posted on May 05, 2014 by William J. Claiborne, DDS MS

Several years ago, a survey showed how men’s oral care habits differ from women when it comes to the care of their teeth and gums. It found 86% of females brush their teeth twice or more a day while only 66% of males do.

For women in the dating world, it’s not unusual to hear female patients share how “turned off” they are by men with poor dental hygiene. Some share things like, “After that first kiss, I knew I wouldn’t be kissing him again.” Some tell about men who show up for dates with food stuck in their teeth or bad breath.

The solution is so easy, guys! Be committed to your 6-month oral hygiene visits, brush twice daily (at least 2 mins.), floss daily and use a tongue scrapper to sweep away embedded bacteria. A clean, healthy mouth helps you avoid bad breath and projects a positive impression to everyone, including the ladies you want to attract!

If you’ve been infrequent with dental check-ups or see blood when you brush, you may have periodontal (gum) disease. It is imperative that you rid your mouth of this problem as it will only worsen without treatment. Gum disease causes persistent bad breath, tender gums and eventual tooth loss. Call (828) 274-9440 for a consultation or to schedule an examination to get you started.
