A Month for Your Mouth, Teeth and Gums!

October marks yet another celebration of National Dental Hygiene Month, which is quite ironic since it’s followed by Halloween and Christmas – two occasions where dental hygiene suffers the most, especially those with kids.

With that in mind, here are a few reminders about taking care of those pretty, little pearly whites of yours (and, of your kids!)

Take note of these reminders at all times and if you have kids, teach them to do the same as well. Building such habits at a very young age is crucial to making sure that they know how to take care of their teeth growing up.

A healthy set of pearly whites contribute to a much better overall health, after all.

Save from these four little reminders though, you also shouldn’t forget your bi-annual oral exam with your dentist. Such regular checkups and cleaning are crucial when it comes to your oral and even, overall health. The main reason being is that there have been recent studies showing a link between bacterial infections of the mouth traveling and spreading throughout the whole body, leading to other, much more severe, complications.

When it comes to oral disease, prevention is always better than cure and prevention is the key to keeping your mouth as healthy as possible.

By visiting your dentist regularly, you not only have your teeth checked and cleaned. You are also kept informed and taught of the many new techniques as well products that may help prevent you from having to deal with periodontal problems in the future!
