National Oral Hygiene Month

National Oral Hygiene Month
Posted on 10/06/2015

There is nothing more important to the Doctors and staff at Bowers Orthodontic Specialists than the oral health of each and every one of our patients. Although we are in the business of creating healthy smiles, it is of equal importance for us to create healthy smiles. We find it is extremely important to make sure that our patients have a great oral hygiene routine, whether adult patient, adolescent or child patient. This is why we are happy to join the American Dental Hygienists’ Association in spreading the word about National Oral Hygiene Month.

What Is National Oral Hygiene Month

This October will mark the sixth year in a row that the ADHA will partner with Wrigley Oral Healthcare Program to raise awareness about oral hygiene. Their goal is a simple one: raise public awareness about the importance of maintaining a great oral health regiment. To do so, they have created a campaign called “do the daily four” which encourages people to do the following each day for a healthier smile:

  • Brushing teeth at least twice daily
  • Flossing daily
  • Rinsing with antimicrobial mouth rinse
  • Chew sugar free gum

If you have any questions about how these simple daily practices can benefit your oral hygiene please feel free to contact us. We are always happy to answer any questions that you may have about creating a better oral hygiene routine.
