While washing up after a work-out at the gym, the gentlemen next to me in the locker room was brushing his teeth. I commented to him, 'Great habit!' He didn't know I'm a dentist, but he responded, 'Three times a day! I had one root canal to know that I had to take better care of the rest of my teeth!' I was impressed with his oral hygiene motivation!
So next time you're going to the gym, bring your tooth brush! After a work-out, your mouth is drier than when you're at rest, and bacteria love to thrive in a stagnant environment.
What's YOUR motivation to keeping a healthy mouth?
