We have nothing against Halloween but it overshadows the thing that matters to us most, Dental Hygiene Month! You may not have known that October is Dental Hygiene Month but we wouldn’t dare allow the month to go by without expressing gratitude to all the dental hygienists that work hard to create beautiful smiles nationwide. This month we want to provide you with some dental hygiene tips for you to maximize the impact of your oral health routine.

Why You Should Take Care of Your Teeth

When you take care of your teeth you also take care of your overall health. Your oral health impacts the quality of your mental health and confidence. Studies show that 50% of Americans are insecure about their teeth. The truth is you don’t have to have a Hollywood smile in order to have healthy teeth. Having a thorough oral care routine is a great first step to achieving the smile of your dreams.

Tips For A Great Smile

Your at-home routine is where fighting for a healthy smile starts. What you eat, drink, and do in a day will ultimately impact your ability to fight gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. A healthy oral routine includes brushing teeth twice a day, flossing once a day, and using an oral rinse daily. You can go beyond your regular day-to-day oral routine to maximize your mouth’s ability to defend itself against oral issues.


There are foods and drinks that you should consider consuming in moderation. For a healthy mouth, we recommend eating fibrous fruits and vegetables, chewing sugar-free gum, dairy products, foods with fluoride, and black and green teas. Be aware of hard and sticky candy, starchy foods, carbonated drinks, and substances that dry your mouth out.

Quit Smoking

Tobacco wreaks havoc on your gums and teeth. Oral cancer has been linked to the use of tobacco and 90% of victims are tobacco users.

Take Advantage of Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are insecure about the color of your teeth, missing teeth, or alignment Denver Highland offers plenty of services to give you a smile you can be proud of. Also, modern technology has allowed procedures to be quicker, less invasive, and less painful.

Schedule Regular Dental Screenings

Aside from your daily oral care routine, seeing your dentist at least once a year is the most effective preventive action you can do for your teeth. Early diagnosis of gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer allows diagnosis and treatment to stop the progression in its track.
