You know you have to brush your teeth. We learn it from the time we are tiny. But it is more than making sure your breath doesn’t smell bad and offend someone. Taking care of your mouth includes taking care of your gums and your teeth. Brushing your teeth helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease. An unhealthy mouth can actually cause other health problems besides issues in the mouth. Gum disease has actually been linked to other serious health issues like heart attack, stoke and even preterm labor.
It is really important that everyone start to understand how the overall health of your mouth affects your body. That is why the Dolley Madison Dentistry Toothbrush Challenge is a big deal.
The Tooth Brush Challenge wants to generate as much buzz as the ALS challenge a while back. Here is how to get involved and have a chance to win a $100 gift card. Simply snap a selfie while brushing your teeth in the most unusual place you can think. Or ask a friend to take a picture of you. Then enter the picture with your contact information. It is that simple. Then whoever brushes their teeth in the most unexpected place will be selected as the ultimate #ToothbrushChallenge champ.
