Lies people tell their dentist.

Gum disease is a silent, aggressive disease that can damage your gums and take your teeth. The most common lies people tell their dental professionals are:

1. I brush my teeth every morning and every night.
2. I floss at least twice a day.
3. Of course, I took all of my antibiotics.

Don't bother lying. Your dental hygienist will know if you're not brushing and flossing or taking prescribed antibiotics. You will be poked, prodded, and measured during every visit.

More importantly, don't lie to yourself and risk gum disease and tooth loss.

Keep smiling.
