Dr. Kanani, Woodland Hills Dentist: Startling Statistics on the Importance of Brushing and Flossing
Date:5/7/2013

Woodland Hills,California (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

A good smile is necessary to a good appearance and a chance in job interviews, says a recent Canadian study, but people still aren't doing what it takes. Nearly everyone who has had a dental appointment has been told to brush and floss more, but it takes more than that to push someone into action. A cosmetic dentist in Woodland Hills, Dr. Kaveh Kanani, says that the threat of gum disease can do that, but often it's too late for anything other than dental implant costs.

MarketWatch released the results of a Canadian study on April 1, 2013 (“Is An Unattractive Smile a Barrier to Professional Success?”. Though 85% of the Canadians surveyed said that a bright smile was “an essential part of a person's overall appearance,” 70% were not fully following the at-home guidelines given to them by a dentist. Almost the same number of people said that the timed guideline would be easier to hit if their toothbrush gave a warning bell when the two minutes was up. Only 20% actually flossed, which means that they had merely brushed across 60% of the mouth's surfaces.

Many people, says Dr. Kanani, overestimate the importance of brushing but ignore flossing. This can actually be more important, since the tongue does tend to naturally clean off much of a tooth's surfaces. What doesn't get brushed off are the parts in between the teeth, where bacteria love to hide. Bacteria feeds on bits of leftover food, and traps it into plaque, which eventually can cause the gums to bleed and teeth to fall out.

86% of the Canadians also admitted to a desire for whiter teeth. Our modern habit of drinking
