National Dental Hygiene Month

The month of October is National Dental Hygiene month and it is another great time for a reminder about the importance of good oral hygiene. NDHM is centered around the 4 main components of great oral health:

  1. Brushing for at least 2 minutes, 2 times a day
  2. Flossing once a day
  3. Using an anti-microbial mouth rinse daily
  4. Chewing sugar free gum after meals

These four components can dramatically improve oral hygiene and significantly reduce the risk of cavities and developing periodontal disease.  If you have any trouble with these components talk with your dentist or hygienist, and if you don’t have one, give us a call.

Happy brushing!!!!
