National Dental Hygiene Month – October

posted: October 3, 2016

As busy as we are these days, it’s easy to forget the little things. That might be why tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children. But good dental health habits can prevent it. And it’s cheap and easy to do!

During National Dental Hygiene Month, focus on doing the “Daily 4” – brushing teeth twice daily, flossing every day, rinsing with antimicrobial mouthwash, and chewing only sugar-free gum. It’s not just about a selfie-worthy smile – good dental health improves your overall health, too.

If you have questions about your dental health or the importance of daily flossing and brushing, call our free 24/7 nurse advice hotline to speak with a Registered Nurse any day, anytime. Or speak to a doctor in person by scheduling an appointment today.
