Healthy Smiles Are Contagious!
October is National Dental Hygiene month and our hygienus’ are very passionate about your oral health!
This month is dedicated to Leah & Jen for their hard work promoting healthy mouths and keeping your teeth squeaky clean
A few oral hygiene tips Leah & Jen would love to share with you-
- Brush two times a day for two minutes! Electric toothbrushes are great because they have a built in timer for 2 minutes.
- Don’t forget to floss! Flossing has gotten media attention in recent years and they get many questions about flossing. How many times a person needs has to floss depends on their own oral needs. Some people have to floss twice a day and others twice a month. Tooth be told, floss can reach things that the toothbrush can’t and our dental hygienus’ can discuss what is the perfect amount for your oral health!
- Come see us biannually! We eat and drink all day long, and as much as we don’t like to think about it, our mouths are full of bacteria. Having a biannual clinical cleaning appointment with our dental hygienists will help keep your oral health on track and keep bacteria away. Without those visits, you are at risk for gum disease and possible tooth decay. Plus, we give you a new toothbrush and who doesn’t love getting a brand new toothbrush?!
Your smile is your best asset. Remember to take good care of it!😎Floss😎Brush twice daily😎And visit BTD regularly!
