Have you ever had someone hassle you about cleaning something? Some sort of organizing task that’s gotten a little behind? Generally speaking, we get things cleaned that need to be cleaned. While October is known for pumpkins and kids and playing in leaves, it’s also known is some circles for being National Dental Hygiene Month. You know what else? It shines light on the same old cleaning routines we’ve come to know. And love. A little, at least.
It’s a great time to shore up those old habits that might have begun to slip over time. Remember brushing and flossing at least once a day? Remember how good it is to attend to your teeth after meals? Maybe this October you can learn a few new things. Like that regular dental check ups actually have a direct effect on your overall health. Did you know that? Recent studies have proven that poor oral health can result in heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and even Alzheimer’s disease. You read that right. Your dentist–and even before that, your dental hygienist–may be the first person to catch a serious medical issue.
So it would be worth a little bit of your time to follow us on Facebook this month. We’ll be handing out a host of tips and tricks to help you get some good new routines in place to keep your mouth healthy and happy. At Haring Pediatric Dental, we care a great deal about preventive care for your kids’ oral health. We care about your whole family because we truly are a family practice ourselves. The more we can empower you to take better care of your smiles, the better we all are. Visit our website to schedule your children’s check-ups! Start in October for a feel-good treat.
