A pearly white smile has become the most sought-after attribute since the days of plastering on piles of mascara for loooong eyelashes. A variety of products to help you get those gleaming white teeth are available, as are dentists specializing in transforming dingy yellow or stained teeth to snow white. But what many people don’t realize: What you eat and drink can make a dramatic difference in the health and appearance of your teeth.
We worry so much about what our kids eat, but we also should worry about what they don’t eat—toothpaste and other dental products! Even though children don’t (and shouldn’t) ingest oral hygiene products, these products do get absorbed by our little ones in small amounts, and can contain chemicals, which is why it really matters which products you use.
“Do you floss regularly?” the dental hygienist asked as I stared at her blankly. Well, I’ve thought about flossing from time to time – I wonder if that counts. The truth is, most people just don’t like to floss. They consider it a chore, an extra activity that isn’t necessary.
The American Dental Association, on the other hand, sees things a bit differently.
