Not Flossing

How many times have you lied to your dentist about flossing? They don’t just ask you this question to make conversation. It’s actually an important aspect of your oral hygiene.

Brushing your teeth will get rid of most debris, but flossing helps clean the areas between your teeth. By doing so regularly, you can avoid interproximal cavities and inflammation of the gums that, in worse cases, could lead to gum disease.

Just floss. Sure it may be boring, but you know what’s not boring? The irreversible recession of the gums!

Listening to Loud Music Unprotected

Listening to music could make you feel good and relaxed… so why would you do so unsafely? Loud sounds will damage the cells of your inner ear and, in time, you’ll suffer from high-frequency hearing loss.

The most common culprits? listening to earbuds or going to live concerts without earplugs. People over 50 are more susceptible to these damages, so think twice before you make these mistakes.

By keeping sound levels to between 60 and 85 decibels you’ll be protecting your precious ears from damage. If you have a sound meter nearby, test out your favorite tunes and the volume at which you listen to them. The numbers might shock you and make you think twice about turning up the volume.
