EAST LONGMEADOW, NORTHAMPTON AND PIONEER VALLEY, MASSACHUSETTS – October is National Dental Hygiene Month, a monthlong event organized by the American Dental Hygienists’ Association.
The theme this year focuses on healthy habits for a healthy smile. Dr. Vincent J. Mariano and the dentists at EMA Dental, a multi-doctor Pioneer Valley dentistryoffice, are celebrating by acknowledging their amazing team of registered dental hygienists who have a combined 95 years of dental hygiene experience that enables them to provide services of the highest level to our patients.
“The doctors and hygienists are also happy to announce that our hygienists are now providing BOOST whitening services to their patients,” says Dr. Mariano. “BOOST is our newest whitening technique, and it is a great introductory procedure or a great touch-up option for those who have whitened in the past.”
The fact that it can be done by any of our hygienists or whitening specialists in just about an hour makes it a convenient and efficient option. In recognition of National Dental Hygiene Month, here are a few tips to keeping your mouth healthy.
Visit Dentist Regularly- Visiting your family general dentist routinely can help prevent serious dental issues, such as gum disease, cavities or tooth loss. Brush- Brushing twice a day is critical to maintaining a healthy smile, says Dr. Lisa Emirzian, an extreme makeover specialist.
Floss- Flossing can remove plaque and food debris from places a toothbrush cannot reach. Daily flossing is recommended for the prevention of tooth decay and gum disease.
Mouthwash- Rinsing your mouth is another important step in the prevention of gingivitis. Antiseptic mouthwash can kill germs that brushing leaves behind.
You can incorporate these simple hygiene tips into any busy schedule to maintain good oral health. The result is a beautiful healthy smile.
