Are myths about dental health derailing your dental care plan ? Mistruths abound when it comes to dental health, and learning the facts could cause you to make some drastic changes to your care plan. For instance, most people know that sugar plays a role in tooth decay. From that, people assume that reducing sugar in their diets equals cutting their tooth decay risk. In reality, how long your teeth are exposed to sugar matters much more than how much you eat. Sucking on one lollipop for 30 minutes without brushing is a much bigger dental disaster than eating five lollipops and brushing afterwards. Chicago’s University Associates in Dentistry busts common dental myths and sheds light on some fascinating dental facts in this infographic. Let your loved ones in on the truth behind oral health myths by sharing this information with them.
