October is National Dental Hygiene Month: An annual reminder to promote healthy teeth and gums and practice the key daily habits: Brushing, Flossing, Eating healthy, Use mouthwash, Chew sugar-free gum.
Taste buds are all over your mouth—not just your tongue.
Tastebuds Only Have A Lifespan Of 10-14 Days (sometimes more frequently, given their vulnerable position in the mouth).
Luckily, they grow back ASAP!
Dental technology has helped make cleaning at home easier. WATER FLOSSING: Your toothbrush can’t get into those tiny spaces where plaque forms, making water flossing a great tool to prevent gum disease.
YOUR FOOD MATTERS: Crunchy, firm vegetables that contain lots of water are great natural teeth cleaners because they stimulate the flow of saliva, which helps to scrub away food particles and bacteria.
