October is National Dental Hygiene Month
Did you know that October is National Dental Hygiene Month? You need to focus on the importance of oral health 365 days a year, but October being dedicated to it, serves as a good reminder.
And it doesn’t matter whether you have real teeth, dental implants, or a mix of both. You still need to brush thoroughly twice a day for at least two minutes and floss to prevent problems from arising such as bad breath, bleeding gums, and cavities. Not to mention, poor oral health can affect your whole body and organs in a negative way. Good oral health cannot be emphasized enough.
Plus, time goes by so fast, you may think you were just at the dentist for a cleaning, when it could have literally been 9 months ago. Always book your next appointment before you leave your dental clinic, so that you can be sure not to lose track of when you need another checkup and professional cleaning.
You only get one set of teeth – and it goes without saying that dental implants are an investment that you want to protect, so take care of them.
