Our team at Altura Periodontics, wishes you a Happy “National Dental Hygiene Month”, a national effort to celebrate the great work dental hygienists do and also to help raise awareness on the importance of good Oral Health.
October, a month commonly known for ghosts and goblins (and lots of candies), also brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, to promote the benefits of good oral health.
This year, the National Dental Hygiene Month is centered around the four components of good oral health maintenance: The Daily 4 (Brush, Floss, Rinse and Chew). These are four routines that can help people maintain healthy smiles.
Your oral health is an important aspect of your overall health and can be often overlooked. Not only does taking care of your mouth, teeth and gums help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath, but it can also protect you from more serious health problems down the road. That’s why we encourage you to celebrate with us, by practicing good oral hygiene at home with these healthy hygiene habits.
Make this National Dental Hygiene Month last all year long by following these healthy habits to your daily routine, and visiting our office for cleanings at least twice a year!
