February is National Dental Health Month

Lifelong habits begin at home.  Make dental health part of your daily routine and share these reminders with your whole family:

Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, especially after breakfast and before bedtime.  Drinking water after eating also helps to clear your teeth of food particles.

Floss every day. An adult should help children under the age of eight to floss.  Older children should be ready to floss on their own.

Limit the number of times you eat snacks, especially the sticky ones and long lasting ones.

Visit a dentist regularly for a routine check up and a cleaning.

Protect your teeth by wearing a mouth guard when playing sports.

Don’t forget to change your tooth brush regularly, and after an illness.

Sweet snack facts:

Eating a lot of snacks with sugar may cause cavities.

Every time you eat sugar, plaque in your mouth mixes with the sugar to make acid.  The acid hurts the teeth and causes decay over time. This can be painful!

The school nurse can help you find a dental home for your family!
