[VIDEO] How Much Do Malaysians Know About Their Oral Hygiene?
Don't wait until it hurts!
Did you know that 9/10 Malaysian adults have signs of gum disease? :O
While most of us are aware of the importance of taking care of our teeth, not many of us know that our gums are an equally important factor of oral hygiene. Keeping our gums healthy can be difficult when we may not even know the signs of gum disease, especially since many of the signs may look normal.
Ashley: "I do take really good care of my oral hygiene. I think it's very very important. I can never date somebody who has bad oral hygiene."
So we decided to put our colleagues to the test and see just how much they know about gum disease! Watch the full video below to see how they fared:
Even the seemingly "obvious" photos caused a lot of confusion
Kevin: "Well, you can obviously see the blood going on around there, yeah."
Tammy: "There's like bubbles."
Dylan: "It looks ok... what... ?"
Ashley: "IT LOOKS OK TO YOU?!"
Which ended up causing a lot of heated debates and differences in opinion
Ashley: "I don't think it's actually a sign of gum disease."
Tammy: "I would say yes. It's a gum disease."
Kevin: "WHAT?! HOW?!"
Tammy: "Signs! They're showing signs!"
No matter how good you think your oral hygiene is, it's important to get checked and make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy
