Even if you tell your dentist that you’ve been brushing and flossing your teeth one looks at your mouth and they’ll know if you’re lying or you’re telling the truth. You can’t hide from your dentist Hollywood. Remember that they spent years studying what a healthy mouth looks like so when you tell them lies for the sake of impressing them, it’s going to be pretty useless.
All patients know that brushing and flossing are the foundations of good oral hygiene. While some don’t have a problem with these others just can’t keep up. Perhaps they are too busy or too lazy to regularly brush and floss their teeth. One look at the condition of your teeth and your dentist will instantly know if you don’t practice good oral hygiene. Even if you brush and floss five times on the day of your dental appointment it will not conceal the fact that you’re not consistent in keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
Are you aware that 12% of adults still continue to thumb suck? This childhood habit usually stops at the age of 5 but it appears that some adults continue to do it in private. Unfortunately, even if you hide it, it will reflect on your teeth because thumb sucking can significantly change the position of your teeth resulting in an angled front tooth or an overbite.
You can’t hide bad breath. If your breath stinks, then it’s probably because of a gastrointestinal problem. Despite brushing, flossing and rinsing with a mouthwash if your breath still continues to smell your dentist will suspect a GI problem.
