We’ve all heard the Christmas song, “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” written by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespi. This Christmas classic, first sung on Eddie Cantor’s radio show in November 1934, cautions children to behave because Santa can magically perceive whether they are naughty or nice.
He’s making a list,
He’s checking it twice,
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you’re sleeping
And he knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake
Some people try to hide their dental habits from the dentist. They try to hide their irregular and haphazard oral hygiene by brushing their teeth vigorously right before their dental appointment. Oral hygiene habits cannot be concealed. Built up stain and food impaction are visible tell-tale signs of poor dental hygiene. Poor dental hygiene will eventually result in tooth decay, cavities, gum disease tooth loss and can even affect overall physical health.
The dentists at Pi Dental Center recommend brushing after every meal, cleaning between the teeth with dental floss, water flosser or Proxabrush and scheduling oral hygiene cleanings and examination at least twice a year. Oral hygiene instruction can help patients improve their oral hygiene techniques.
