Brush Up At The Office

Do You Brush While At Work?

You brush at home before you leave for work and right before you go to bed; but what about after lunch? More than three-fourths of American’s eat two or more times per day at work., and only 14% brush during work hours. Since most people spend a third of each weekday in the office, those lapse in oral care can really add up. Meals, snacks, and sugary beverages during the day can contribute to a lot of plaque and can increase the chance of tooth decay and even gum disease. Hendersonville Dentist recommends brushing on the job to¬†definitely reduce bacteria.

Tips For Brushing At Work

  • Keep a toothbrush at your desk–leaving a toothbrush at the office increases the likelihood of brushing by 65%.
  • Brush immediately after lunch—before checking emails, starting work or attending meetings.
  • Ensure you are drying your toothbrush after each use and store it in a travel container.
  • Replace your office toothbrush more often than your toothbrush at home to avoid bacteria buildup.
