White tooth

The February 2023 National Children’s Dental Health Month is brought to you by the ADA. This month-long national health observance promotes the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers, and many others. This year’s theme is Brush, Floss, Smile!

Keeping up with daily oral care and visiting the dentist at least twice a year for an oral examination and professional cleanings are steps you can take toward a happier and healthier mouth! Setting the foundation for your child earlier in life will set your child up for success in the future.

Did you know that tooth decay is children’s most common chronic disease? Avoid tooth decay by:

Schedule an Appointment Twice a Year
Buy New Toothbrushes every 3-4 Months
Check on your Childs Brushing Technique Daily

February is National Gum Disease Awareness Month

At Impeccable Smiles, we aim to provide all our patients with the general and preventive dental care they need to avoid gum disease. Nearly half of all American adults have gum disease. According to the CDC, about 47.2% of all American adults over 30 have gum disease, and many are unaware of it. Most of these cases are gingivitis, a minor form of gum disease. As you age, the risk of gum disease increases even more. According to the same CDC report, around 70.1% of adults 65 or older have gum disease. To avoid gum disease, ensure you care for your teeth as you age.

  • Read below on how to keep your gums strong and healthy.
  • Brush at least twice per day for two minutes
  • Floss your teeth once per day
  • Quit smoking or oral tobacco use
  • Minimize sugary and starchy foods in your diet
  • Ensure diabetes is controlled properly
  • See a dentist every six months for a teeth cleaning and oral exam
  • Address xerostomia (dry mouth), which can contribute to a higher risk of gum disease

Going to the dentist is essential and should be a regular appointment you make twice a year. If you want to start 2023 off strong, you should make the goal of visiting the dentist more often.
