October: The Dental Connection!

Now that October is wrapping up, it's time to take one final look at one of the most important celebrations related to Fall, National Dental Hygiene Month!  The American Dental Association attempts to raise public awareness about good oral health during this time each year.   Their national campaign focuses on BRUSH, FLOSS, RINSE, CHEW!

Remember to brush two minutes twice daily, make flossing a consistent and daily routine, rinse your mouth with mouthwash to freshen your breath, and chew sugar-free gum to 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 regularly brush, effectively floss and maintain regular dental cleanings, can significantly reduce the oral bacteria that has been associated with your health!

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

God Bless,
