During this time of year, it is easy for men, women, and children to put off their usual good oral health routines. However, it isn’t just Santa Claus that comes to visit during the holidays; plaque is also pleased to make its presence known.
Dakota Dental Apple Valley family dentistry is taking this opportunity to remind Twin Cities residents to consider the importance of dental health. Despite hectic schedules and the holiday rush, it is essential to continue brushing and flossing dental care routines every day.
Of primary importance in maintaining good oral health, according to Dakota Dental, is brushing teeth at least twice daily. This includes brushing along the gum lines and brushing the tongue. Next, flossing at least once a day is essential to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Finally, using a mouthwash can help keep gingivitis and bad breath at bay. These measures are especially important during the holiday season, when sticky and sugary treats are easily available.
Before the year ends, Dakota Dental also wishes to remind patients to check their insurance benefits. To maximize insurance coverage and to minimize potential tooth fillings and problems, it is time to schedule preventive dentistry visits for the family.
