Oral health is really important. Growing up I watched as my moms teeth basically fell right out of her mouth as she was terrified of going to the dentist and although she really did take care of her oral health it just wasn’t good enough. The teeth that didn’t fall out of her mouth, well let’s just say they weren’t pretty. Eventually she had to have ALL of her teeth removed, wait for her gums to heal then start the process of wearing false teeth in her 40s. This is something I don’t want to have to do, nor do I want my kids to have to do or deal with so it’s always been important to me to make sure everyone is on top of oral health.
Arm & Hammer™ dental have put together this wonderful infographic to help show the Oral Habits of Canadians. They surveyed some Canadians and I will say I was a little shocked at the infographic myself (who drops their toothbrush somewhere and STILL USES IT?!? eek!), how about you – did any of this shock you?
3 Easy Tips for Keeping On Top of Oral Health
Have a Routine: Wake up in the morning and before you leave the bathroom make sure you brush your teeth, floss and rinse! Same goes for bedtime, after your evening shower, bubble bath or last visit to the toilet don’t leave without brushing. Make a sign to put on your mirror if you forget, that way you will see it before you exit!
Keep Your Oral Health Products in View: But keep them protected! If you leave them on the counter, or somewhere visible which I find helps my kids remember it’s time to brush – be sure they are protected! Keep a lid on the container they are left in or purchase the little brush protectors that fit on each tooth brush. You don’t want open tooth brushes out in the open where people are using the bathroom! However, some find it much more helpful if they can see their brushes – it helps them remember to brush, brush, brush!
Make Sure you Buy what you Like: I find some tooth pastes and brushes just don’t cut if for me, and others in my house. So I make sure to purchase what works for the individual and keep extras on hand as a just in case! Some don’t like bubble gum tooth paste, while others can’t stand mint! So it’s always good to keep options, and extras on hand!
With many unknown dangers associated with poor oral health that extend beyond just cavities, it’s important to make sure your quality of life isn’t impacted in a bad way; oral pain, missing teeth and infections are terrible and dangerous to deal with. With the help of Arm & Hammer Dental products, families can ensure their teeth are fresh, clean and leave them feeling revitalized.
