April Is Oral Health Month

By April 7, 2012

Follow me on:

In Canada, April is the month to take note of your oral health. Of course, you don't have to live in Canada to be reminded of how to properly care for your teeth and gums. And now that evidence has shown that our oral health is directly linked with our overall health, we need to pay close attention to how we treat our mouths. What are some things you can do to improve the health of your mouth?
  • Brush and floss twice a day.
  • Eat nutritious meals with plenty of crunchy vegetables.
  • Visit your dentist regularly.

And don’t forget that an important part of Oral Health Month is National Dental Hygienists Week, April 8-14. Your Total Health begins with your dental hygienist because we’re all about Oral Health for Total Health!

I was fortunate enough to have a mother as a dental hygienist. She was a stickler for brushing all the time when I was a kid and drilled that into my brain. I have always been fortunate enough to have really healthy teeth because of learning those habits early on.
