Last month we celebrated Father’s Day. June was also Men’s Health Month. Let’s not lose the focus on guys and their health. In addition to checking your blood pressure and cholesterol, it’s important not to forget about oral health as well.
Studies have found that men are less likely to go to the dentist routinely and usually only go when a problem arises
Women are more likely to brush their teeth twice a day than men.
Men are more likely to develop dry mouth.
Men are more likely to develop gum disease.
Twice as many men as women develop oral cancer often from smoking, chewing tobacco and drinking alcohol.
Take this month to readdress your oral health care habits and remember to schedule your routine cleaning appointment.
