Two-word answers


Who takes better care of their teeth – men or women?


Typically, women.

Research shows differences between the sexes in terms of oral health awareness, attitude and preventive care. The American Dental Association reported men are more likely to avoid the dentist for years at a time, while women tend to keep regular checkups and cleanings. When women do have dental problems, they’re more likely to follow their recommended treatment plans, according to a study published in 2015 by the International Dental Journal.

To keep your teeth healthy, make sure to brush, floss and visit the dentist regularly.
