Taking care of your oral health is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Good, effective oral hygiene practices are essential. Your mouth and teeth, along with the rest of your body, are homes to bacteria. It’s important to take care of your teeth and brush daily to help remove harmful bacteria from your body that can lead to serious illnesses.
The month of June is recognized as Oral Health Month to remind patients the importance of taking care of their teeth and oral health. One of the first steps to taking care of your teeth is making sure you are brushing and flossing everyday. According to the American Dental Association, it is recommended that you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes and also floss your teeth once per day. It’s important to brush and floss regularly and also very important to not only your oral health, but can also keep plaque at bay and prevent cavities.
To maintain optimal oral health, the ADA also recommends visiting your Dentist twice a year for a dental check-up and cleaning. The team at Cottonwood Dental offers a $19 dental exam, X-ray and consultation. This is a great first step in taking care of your oral health!
