If you’re concerned about what a beating your teeth might take during the holidays, let’s begin with Thanksgiving. In a couple of days many families will be feasting on their version of Thanksgiving dinner. So, besides raw, crispy veggies, is there going to be any teeth-friendly foods at your table?
Do you know what October is? Aside from the time of year when the temps start to really drop (and Halloween arrives, of course), it just so happens to be National Dental Hygiene Month. As a result, it’s always a good idea to take some time to ask yourself how you’re doing with your oral health. Are you doing a good job keeping your dental care details organized? Have you been in to see us lately? Let’s go through a quick checklist to make sure all is well.
#1: Have We Seen You Recently?
Your dental hygiene is only going to remain effective if you’re coming in for exams and dental cleanings. We only need to see you once every six months to help you keep your oral health safe.
#2: Is Your Toothbrush Old?
Have you been using your toothbrush for longer than three or four months? If so, you’re not providing your dental health with any favors. Instead, you may be brushing with less impressive results. Throw the brush away and begin anew.
#3: Are You Brushing And Flossing Daily?
How’s your dental hygiene schedule looking? Are you on top of everything, brushing in the morning and at night and flossing during one of those sessions? If not, get back on schedule for your best oral health.
#4: Do You Know What You’re Doing?
Do you know what you should be doing when you brush and floss? Are you completely certain that you’re buying the right oral health products? No? Then come on in for a visit, so we can help you establish effective habits for a healthy smile.
