October is National Dental Hygiene Month! Join us this year in keeping your teeth and gums healthy with these three tips you and your family can all benefit from.

  1. Don’t just brush your teeth – With Halloween and upcoming food-filled holidays just around the corner, National Dental Hygiene Month is a great reminder to take better care of your smile. Daily brushing should cover your teeth, gums, tongue and roof of the mouth to brush away leftover food or bacteria.
  2. Floss. Floss. – Brushing only takes care of the surface level of your smile. Tooth decay-causing bacteria still lingers between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. In order to effectively clean your teeth, use your favorite Plackers® flosser after each meal to get the gunk out. Purchase our new spill-free packaging for your purse or car here!
  3. Rinse after you floss – Rinsing your mouth is also an important step when it comes to your oral health, but unless you brush and floss regularly, you won’t be achieving all benefits. Mouthwash can help prevent tartar buildup, fight plaque and support a whiter smile.

By following these simple tips, your smile will be the healthiest it has ever been!
