October is the time to celebrate National Dental Health Month! Once again, the American Dental Association and the Wrigley Company have partnered to help raise public awareness about good oral health. The National Campaign focuses on Brush, Floss, Rinse, Chew!
- Always brush two minutes, twice daily
- Make flossing a daily habit
- Use Mouthwash to freshen breath
- After eating, chew sugar-free gum to 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 regularly brush, effectively floss and maintain 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 for a cleaning with one of our great hygienists, Karla, Deidra, or Janae, call our office at 918-455-0123!
