It’s October and a great time to celebrate the hard work dental hygienists do and raise awareness of how important it is for us all to have healthy teeth. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 90% of adults have cavities in their permanent teeth. That’s a pretty staggering number! In this blog post, we will discuss some helpful tips that can help you maintain good oral hygiene.
First, let’s talk about brushing your teeth. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day, and if you can brush after every meal, that’s even better! Be sure to use a toothbrush with soft bristles, and use gentle circular motions when you brush. Don’t forget to floss! Flossing helps remove plaque and bacteria from in between your teeth, so it’s important to do it at least once a day.
If you’re looking for ways to keep your smile healthy and sparkling, be sure to celebrate National Dental Hygiene Month with these helpful tips! And remember, if you have any questions or concerns about your oral health, be sure to talk to your dentist or dental hygienist. They are the experts, and they can help you ensure that you’re taking care of your teeth in the best way possible.
Have a happy and healthy National Dental Hygiene Month!
