You all know that the Friday after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday. Did you know that it is also known as ” National Flossing Day”? Yes, that is right you could be flossing on November 25th instead of fighting the crowds in those stores! While ” thanks” are on the mind, here are 5 benefits that will make you thankful for practicing good oral hygiene like your Dentist and Dental Hygienist have recommended:
Be thankful for a healthy mouth.
Following your Dentist’s flossing advice can put you on the road to a much healthier smile. We know it can be a hard habit, but flossing cleans out bacteria hiding between your teeth that can cause tooth decay and gum disease.
Appreciate strong teeth.
Good oral hygiene and the proper amount of calcium can work wonders for the strength of your teeth. Soon you will be able to eat and drink your merry way through the holidays.
Give thanks for no tooth sensitivities.
Taking care of your teeth and gums means that you can eat hot and cold food and drinks without a risk of sensitivity. We know this is especially important during pumpkin spice season and egg nog season is right behind that!
Show gratitude for good breath.
Being able to brush and floss your teeth keeps your mouth fresh. You can use a mouth wash after that to help keep your breath fresh and clean. With mistletoe season coming, you will be kissable.
Be thankful for your bright smile.
