The cold or flu are common things we try and avoid catching, but what if I told you that cavities are contagious too?! Research has proven that not only is this very much so a possibility, it’s COMMON!
We all like to make candy and sugar the culprit for unhealthy teeth, the reality is cavities are caused by bacteria that is clinging to the teeth. This bacteria creates a acid by-product that ultimately destroys your tooth enamel.
The gross thing about it all is just like the cold or flu can be swapped and shared from one person to the next, so can this cavity creating bacteria. Sharing food, drinking off of someone, and kissing are the most common ways to swap this bacteria.
According Dr. Mitchell, a cosmetic dentist, “In one instance, a patient in her 40s who had never had a cavity suddenly developed two cavities and was starting to get some gum disease.” She learned the woman had started dating a man who hadn’t been to a dentist in 18 years and had gum disease.
In order to help prevent this awful case of swapping cavity causing bacteria, make sure you are flossing and brushing your teeth regularly. And next time you create your list of must-have’s for your potential future love interest, make sure you add good dental hygiene to the list!
