October is the time to celebrate National Dental Hygiene Month! Once again, the American Dental Association and the Wrigley Company have partenered to help raise the 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 that is related to the important connection between good oral health and the elevated risk for heart disease and stroke. Simply remembering to brush regularly, floss effectively and maintain regular dental cleanings, can significantly reduce the oral bacteria that has been associated with your heart health!
