03 Oct HAB Dental Hygienists Rock!
No one can make you smile better than a dental hygienist! That certainly holds true for the hygienists at HAB Dental. We may be biased, but we think they are the best dental hygienists in Boynton Beach, Florida!
October is National Dental Hygiene Month, which means this is a great time to talk about the importance of proper dental hygiene while also giving a shout-out to the top Boynton Beach, FL dental hygienists.
Coming to see our Boynton Beach dental team for regular cleanings and checkups is an important part of maintaining a healthy smile. It’s also very important to take care of your teeth at home.
National Dental Hygiene Month 2019
Every year, the American Dental Association picks a different theme to focus on during National Dental Hygiene Month. According to Colgate, “This year, the awareness month is focusing on four routines that can help people maintain healthy smiles: brush, floss, rinse and chew.”
In addition to brushing twice a day and cleaning between your teeth with floss or a water pic at least once a day, the American Dental Association recommends rinsing often to help reduce the chance of dental decay and infection. “Because teeth alone account for less than half of the mouth, rinsing can help eliminate biofilm and bacteria that brushing and flossing cannot,” the experts at Colgate explain. It is best to avoid rinses that have alcohol in them, however.
“Lastly, clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay,” the folks at Colgate say. Apparently, chewing sugarless gum increases the flow of saliva. That, in turn, can wash away food and other debris. It also neutralizes the acids that may be produced by bacteria in the mouth.
The caring professionals at HAB Dental would love to celebrate National Dental Hygiene Month with you!
