America's Germ Phobia Doesn't Add Up By SEO Admin on June 24, 2011

Almost anywhere you go these days you can find antibacterial wipes or germ-killing gels to wipe down your shopping cart, prevent you from sharing germs on the elevator or reinfecting yourself in the doctor's office. But a recent study by the makers of Listerine and Reach products found that while 80% of Americans are worried about the germs on our hands, only 66% are concerned about the germs in our mouths! The problem with those germs in your mouth is that they multiply, and can ultimately lead to chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Although almost all (95%) of those people surveyedrealized that brushing alone would not keep their mouths healthy, only one in three of them actuallyfloss daily and only half of them are going to the dentist twice a year for preventative check-ups. It only takes a few minutes a day to brush and floss your teeth,and only an hour every six months for your hygiene visit to help prevent the development of chronic disease and to increase the social benefit and self-confidence that come with a healthy smile! desktop Please call your Rockville, MD dentist Victor R. Siegel, now at 301-963-4330and schedule your next visit.
