Monthly  Update  

October is National Dental Hygiene Month

October is National Dental Hygiene Month, an annual reminder for the nation to practice the daily habits that promote healthy teeth and gums.  This month long campaign is targeted mostly towards children but also works to remind adults that they need to take care of their teeth as well. 

The focus of the month is on the key daily habits that promote healthy teeth and gums.  These are:

BRUSHING.  The ADHA recommends using a soft toothbrush to brush twice a day, once in the morning after breakfast and then again in the evening just before going to bed, using a toothpaste containing fluoride.

FLOSSING. This should be done once daily, optimally just before going to sleep, when trapped food particles can do the most damage.

EATING HEALTHY.  A diet in accordance with the government's food pyramid promotes oral health by cutting down on sugars and contributing to overall physical health and includes whole grains and dairy products, vegetables, fruits, and nuts with meat, fish, and sweets in moderation.

Although the healthy daily habits that lead to healthy teeth should be taught as soon as the child is old enough to do them on their own, adults should get into the habits recommended by this year's National Dental Hygiene month!
