October is National Dental Hygiene Month! This year, we’re offering patients dental hygiene tips to improve their overall oral health. Your everyday habits can significantly impact your oral health. Learn how to mitigate oral health concerns with easy to follow everyday tips.
If you have a history of cavities or gum disease, the dentist may recommend biannual cleaning appointments. If not, most people do well with a dental cleaning once a year. While you might imagine that a dental cleaning is unnecessary if you follow the above tips, the truth is professional dental cleanings cannot be substituted by any other means. Regular dental hygiene and trips to the dentist work in tandem to help you to attain the best possible oral health. These visits allow the dentist to detect and address incipient conditions before they can progress.
If you’re looking for a dentist or haven’t made your appointment in some time, we encourage you to reach out to us at Penn Dental Medicine. We offer discounted prices to patients at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Our student dentists, who are completing the final stage of their training, are supervised by our experienced faculty dentists. To make your appointment and boost your dental hygiene habits, please call us at 215-898-8965. We look forward to seeing you soon!
