Happy National Dental Hygiene Month! Make an effort to celebrate the work dental hygienists do and help raise awareness on the importance of good oral health.
So, how can you celebrate?
Use the proper brushing technique like placing your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums.
Gently move the brush back and forth in short strokes.
Brush the outer and inner surfaces of your teeth.
Brush your tongue for fresh breath.
Rinsing may also help reduce the chance of dental decay and infection. Lastly, chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes after meals can help prevent tooth decay.
However, you shouldn’t just practice good oral hygiene this month, it should be all year round! Let your friends, family, and neighbors know about it. Together, you can help people maintain their beautiful smiles!
