Are you overjoyed to learn that it’s National Dental Hygiene Month? If so, you might feel a bit frantic, wondering how to make the most of this exciting time. The good news is that there’s no right way to celebrate, so if you’re taking steps to focus on your dental hygiene, you’re already doing quite well. However, just in case you feel a little lacking in the ideas department, we thought we would offer up some simple ways to enjoy yourself (and protect your smile) during this “holiday.”
Start Chewing Gum
No, not the sugar-filled kind. However, we do suggest you consider adding sugarless chewing gum to your daily approach toward effective dental hygiene. Chewing gum it (particularly if its sweetener is xylitol) after a snack, meal, or sugary drink is a wonderful way to protect your oral health when your toothbrush and toothpaste are out of sight.
Buy Yourself A Present
Have you been waiting for the right moment to buy yourself that electric toothbrush you have been thinking about trying out (but there’s never a good enough reason)? Add this to your dental hygiene routine, while using this exciting month as your excuse!
Give Us A Call
Have you all but forgotten about that visit you were supposed to have scheduled with us already? Get back on track with your professional dental care by calling us. We are always glad to hear from you and will, of course, be more than happy to get you situated with the appointment date and time you need.
