October: National Dental Hygiene Month!

October is here again and time to celebrate National Dental Hygiene Month!  The American Dental Hygiene Association and the Wrigley Company have once again partnered together for the fifth consecutive year to help raise public awareness about good oral health.  This year's campaign once again focuses on Brush, Floss, Rinse, Chew

  • BRUSH: Always brush two minutes, two times a day, every day
  • FLOSS: Ensure Flossing is a Daily Habit
  • RINSE: Use mouthwash to improve oral health
  • CHEW: Chewing sugar-free gum after eating can help fight tooth decay

More evidence continues to surface related to the important connection between good oral hygiene and the elevated risk for heart disease and stroke.  Simply remembering to brush two minutes twice daily, to effectively floss daily and to maintain your regular dental cleanings, can significantly reduce the oral bacteria that has been associated with your heart health!

If you have any questions or are in need of an appointment, call our office at 918-455-0123!

God Bless,
