According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, in the US employed adults lose more than 164 million hours of work each year due to poor dental health or dental visits.

Not only are hours of work lost, but poor dental health results in poor work quality. Good dental health increases work success because good dental hygiene affects overall health.

You perform at your best when you are healthy and happy!


Oral Health and Work Success


Dental health affects your overall quality of health

If you maintain a healthy mouth you decrease your risk of:

  • toothaches
  • cavities
  • broken or cracked teeth
  • canker sores
  • gingivitis
  • gum disease
  • heart disease

Just like when you have a cold, you’re not at your professional best when you have a dental issue. You simply don’t perform as well as you do if you’re healthy.

Poor oral health may require dental procedures such as a root canal which can take over an hour depending on the severity.

Could Brushing Your Teeth Regularly Make You Happy?

Research shows that proper dental hygiene may also lead to feeling happier.

Good oral health is just one part of keeping your body healthy. When you feel healthy, you feel better about yourself!

Brush at least twice every day, floss at least once a day, and visit your dentist every 3-6 months for optimal oral health.
