Happy National Dental Hygiene Month
Posted on 10/16/2017 by Jessica Edgerton
October is National Dental Hygiene Month! This month, health care professionals across the nation have been spreading the word to help dental hygienists maintain healthy smiles. We know you spend a lot of time helping your little ones brush their teeth, drink plenty of water, and develop a healthy attitude toward going to the dentist. It’s not always easy, and we’re here to help!

Our award-winning blog is full of fun and useful information on every aspect of kids’ oral hygiene. Here are some of our readers’ favorite topics:

Maintain Good Hygiene in a High-Tech World. 4.8 billion people own mobile devices, while 4.2 billion own a toothbrush. And there’s no doubt kids love to borrow your electronics too. No problem! It’s all about balance. This post is about using the iPad and smart phone for good to promote brushing.

5 Fun Apps That Will Get the Kids Brushing. While we’re at it, here are more apps to check out; and why not monitor the sugar intake too?

Brush Your Kids’ Teeth When They Can’t Do It Themselves. You’ve spent years holding the brush and doing the work for them, and it’s reached the point when you’re ready to let the kids take over their own brushing. Are they ready for the responsibility? This blog post can help you find out.

Is Mouthwash Safe for My Children? Mouthwash may be a good supplement, but it’s not a replacement for brushing. And, mouthwash isn’t recommended until kids are a little bit older. Read more here.

Seal of Approval for Dental Sealants. As described here, there’s a secret weapon for cavity prevention all parents should take advantage of! (Makes adults wish they could get regular sealants too.)

National Dental Hygiene Month is sponsored by the American Dental Hygienists’ Association.
