Dental Hygiene Month

By Akindman,

National Dental Hygiene Month Just Keeps Getting Better! 

Are You Ready to Celebrate this October?

Brushing your teeth for two minutes at least twice a day remains a critical component to maintaining a healthy smile.

Proper flossing or interdental cleaning removes plaque and food particles in places where a toothbrush cannot easily reach — under the gum line and between your teeth. Because plaque build-up can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, daily flossing is highly recommended.

Rinsing your mouth each day with an anti-microbial mouth rinse is another important step in preventing the gum disease known as gingivitis.

Chewing sugar-free gum after eating is clinically proven to be an important part of good oral health. It stimulates the most important natural defense against tooth decay - saliva - which, in turn helps fight cavities, neutralize plaque acids, remineralize enamel to strengthen teeth and wash away food particles.
