Do You Know What Month it is?
October is National Dental Hygiene Month! Thirty-one days of the calendar year to place a special emphasis on the importance of oral health.
Oral health isn’t just brushing your teeth. It’s brushing them properly and thoroughly twice a day for at least two minutes, flossing, fresh breath, and healthy pink gums. Oh, and don’t forget the regular checkups and professional cleanings every six months.
And remember, the way you take care of your mouth affects your overall health too. For example, if you have an infected tooth, that infection can spread to your neck, jaw, sinuses, and possibly even your brain.Good dental health can never be underestimated.
You only get one set of teeth – take care of them!
