Hit the Road Plaque Giveaway

You may not know this, but October is National Dental Hygiene Month. That's right folks, a whole month dedicated to improving your oral health. I am very much a proponent of dental public health and a big part of that is dental education. I thought that if I could use this blog to help even one person improve their dental hygiene and thus their overall health, then writing this post and hosting this (non-sponsored) giveaway would be worth it. So in honor of national hygiene month, here are some recommendations on maintaining your oral health.. 

Brush Your Teeth 
I'm not going to sit here and describe how to properly brush your teeth. You are all adults, but there are two things that I do want to point out. Most people don't brush their teeth long enough or often enough. So, the recommendation is that you brush twice a day for two minutes each time, spending about 30 seconds in each quadrant. 

Your tooth brush is not the be all end all for good oral health. Flossing at least once a day is equally essential to managing your oral health. To prevent plaque build-up, you need to floss under the gum line everyday. Please, please, please don't be this guy....

Because you aren't fooling anyone, we can totally tell.
Cue evil big brother laugh...muhahha

Using an anti-microbial rinse is just another way to improve your oral health. Aside from those pearly whites, bacteria can attach to your gums, your tongue, your palate...anywhere really. Your teeth are only one portion of your mouth so ensure your oral health by rinsing with an FDA/ADA (American Dental Association) approved mouthwash. 

Now it's time for the fun part, the giveaway! I'd love to help all of you improve your oral hygiene so one lucky person will be receiving this sonicare toothbrush, valued at $200. You can enter below. Good luck!
