Did you know that 49 percent of adults in the U.S. fail to floss their teeth daily, with 10 percent admitting they never floss at all?

Ask dentists what they hear when they ask patients why the don’t floss, and they’ll tell you about a variety of excuses that range from the convincing to the lame.

Did you know that 40 and 50 million people a year in the U.S. avoid going to the dentist because they suffer from dental anxiety, according to the American Dental Association?

Teaching your child the value of dental care from a young age can keep your child from developing dental anxiety in their lives. #pediatricdentist #travismagelsen #dentalcare #dentalanxiety

Like adults, kids are susceptible to piling on foods that are unhealthy for them as they go through a day.

A muffin for breakfast might not sound so bad, but combine that with the cookie that accompanied lunch and soda served with dinner, and eventually their whole day has been given over to foods that are high in empty calories and low in nutrition.

Here's a helpful list of foods to avoid for a healthy lifestyle! #healthyfood #nutrition #dentalcare #travismagelsen

While just googling the answer to your health questions may seem like the easiest, quickest way to obtain information, it's not always the best choice.

A recent study shows the search results generated for the term “dental implants” don’t actually provide useful or easily comprehensible information. #google #dentalcare #travismagelsen #healthyteeth

Have you included scheduling dental cleanings and replacing old toothbrushes in your back to school checklist? A new school year is a great time to check your toothbrush for frayed ends and to make sure your family is scheduled for two checkups this year!

Read the Academy of General Dentistry's "Start the School Year Off With a Smile" guide for more information on keeping healthy teeth this school year!

We’ve all heard the old saying – “You are what you eat!”

You may be thinking that this is a little far-fetched, however, understand there is truth behind the statement.

Our teeth are directly affected by our nutritional habits (or lack thereof) and some common dental problems can be prevented and even corrected by knowing the proper foods to eat.

Read on to learn about how the food you eat can affect your teeth!

It’s easy to create reasons for forgoing brushing and flossing your teeth: lack of time, sleepiness, laziness, etc. But did you know that 80 percent of adults in the United States have some degree of gum disease? And that 42% of children ages 2 to 11 have teeth decay in their primary teeth? Evidently, we aren’t very good at taking care of our teeth.

Read our guide on healthy brushing and flossing techniques to ensure healthy teeth!
