Myth Vs Truth
"You shouldn't change your toothbrush every 3 months if it looks good."
Fact: Even if your toothbrush looks good, it might have been stored improperly and thus filled with bacteria. If you've used your toothbrush regularly, it's not very likely that the bristles are in perfect condition. So make it a habit to change your toothbrush or brush head every 3 months. Also, don't forget to change it after you've been sick!!
Caterpillars have 12 eyes!
Myth Vs Truth
"You shouldn't brush too close to the gum line."
Fact: Yes, we should try to protect our gums, but not brushing close to the gum line is not a solution; as it hinders the proper cleaning of teeth. Bacteria often hang out where your tooth meets your gum. Just make sure your toothbrush bristles can bend and do not forget to keep the brush at a 45- degree angle and avoid brushing hard!
Happy Easter From Your Perspective Dental Family!

Myth Vs Truth
"Toothaches are no cause for worry if they stop."
Fact: If you are experiencing a toothache, but the the pain subsides, you should still see your dentist as soon as you can. Cavities often cause toothaches, as untreated cavities can reach a nerve inside your tooth, causing pain.
If the pain stops, the problem has not disappeared, but rather the cavity has killed the nerve inside your tooth.
