Can you believe the holiday season is already over? We know that December can be a chaotic month for parents and families, and we want to help you settle into your new routines and good habits as we head into 2022.
Establish Healthy Oral Health Habits
We believe that it is critical to establish a solid oral hygiene routine to keep your family’s smiles in pristine condition. Don’t fret; it’s not as difficult as it sounds. Let’s take a look at a few simple steps you can take to ensure that your smile is healthier than ever in 2022!
- Brushing and Flossing – We recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day – once in the morning and once before you go to bed – but brushing after each meal is also an effective plan! We also recommend flossing once a day before bed!
- Keep Your Toothbrush Fresh – Did you know that you need to replace your toothbrush every quarter? It’s an easy thing to forget but changing replacing your toothbrush is paramount to your smile’s health. Go ahead and replace your toothbrush today and mark your calendar for April 1st, July 1st, October 1st, and next January 1st, then throw your old toothbrush out when your calendar tells you to! You’ll also want to replace everyone’s toothbrush when someone in your house gets sick.
- Buy an Eco-friendly Toothbrush – Regularly replacing your toothbrush can create more waste than you might be used to, but you can still be environmentally conscious! Most electric toothbrushes and many manual toothbrushes have replaceable heads, meaning you don’t have to throw out the handle. You just pop off the head and replace it with fresh bristles!
