As a child, you may have constantly been reminded to brush your teeth every morning and night, as well as floss, so that you would have healthy white teeth when you grew up. You may also have been taken to the dentist twice a year and never missed a routine cleaning and exam appointment.

We might think it’s ok to miss a night here or there of brushing and no big deal if we skip a dental visit because we are too busy. This is a bad habit to fall into, however.
