Dentists Debunk 14 Teeth Myths


From Science Insider.

Two dentists debunk 14 of the most common myths about teeth. They explain the science behind white teeth and what really causes cavities. They also debunk the idea that electric toothbrushes are better than regular toothbrushes. In fact, it’s more about how you brush your teeth.
