There is always so much hub-bub around you health- so much so that it is hard to keep track of what is a myth and what isn’t. Sometimes it’s an old adage that’s wrong, and sometimes it’s something once splattered all over the news, either way we’ve got some busted myths for you.
Did you know that whiter teeth are not necessarily healthier? While you chompers should definitely not be a dark color, white doesn’t mean you don’t have gun disease or infections.

Yes tooth whitening via bleach gets a bum wrap, but it’s not the bleach, it’s the companies that sell it in the wrong amounts. Bleaching at your dentist’s is totally safe and good for your teeth. Here’s on that gets me, some say flossing isn’t that important- FALSE! Flossing is incredibly important, and the fact that people out there say it isn’t is kind of scary. Read more dental myths here.
