Lives are busy. And if you are raising children, life has gotten even busier. So much so, you wonder how you thought you never had time before. There are many everyday activities that take place inside the home to ensure our family is healthy and while most are small they add up. One of those activities is daily oral care. Below is a list of everyday habits and every so often habits from Forest Edge Dental. These can keep you and your family’s mouths healthy and smiles sparkling for years to come without adding much extra effort into your day.
You would never doubt the importance of regularly brushing your teeth (right?!), but how much attention do you give to your toothbrush itself?
Your toothbrush is actually your first line of defense against cavities, gum disease, and other serious dental problems. By properly cleaning, storing, and replacing your toothbrush, you can encourage long lasting oral hygiene and protect your radiant smile.
Before we start, nothing can substitute good oral hygiene. You know the routine; brush twice a day, floss daily and never skip your six-month dental cleaning with your favorite Hoffman Estates IL dentist. Might sound boring, but maintaining good oral care will help ensure your teeth last a lifetime and help your co-worker from fleeing every time you need to talk to them! No one likes to have bad breath and no likes to be stuck in a conversation with someone that has bad breath. Unenjoyable for both parties. So outside of good hygiene, what foods naturally help combat halitosis?
The New Year is all about setting goals, fresh starts and healthy living. While we tend to focus on the gym and cleaning up our diet, an important wellness goal should include improving your dental health. Our mouths host hundreds of bacteria and are the gateway to many things affecting our health. Forest Edge Dental has created a simple checklist for patients to stay on the up and up with their oral health!
