October is National Dental Hygiene Month

October is National Dental Hygiene Month - A time when we create more awareness for dental hygiene. 
Brushing twice a day, flossing atleast once a day, using an antiseptic rinse and chewing sugar free gum are all recommended habits to ensure a healthy smile. 
In addition, you should also be seeing your dentist for an exam and having your teeth cleaned by a hygienist atleast once a year. 
Catching oral health problems early is the key to preventing larger problems like periodontitis, tooth loss, bone loss, large cavities and root canal therapy.
