The American Dental Association recommends that you brush your teeth two times a day. For most people their motivation to do so would probably sound something like this. “To prevent my cavities and to keep them looking white,” Vince Digiorgio said. While Digiorgio may have had the most simple reason to continue to brush your teeth, recently, a study conducted by the Sociology of Health and Illness journal titled Straight, white teeth as a social prerogative looked into some of the sociological reasons to continue to improve your oral health. The study found that having a healthier smile can make you more employable and dateable.
