October is National Dental Hygiene Month

At any age, it is important to have a daily oral health routine to help prevent cavities and periodontal disease. In fact, 80 percent of Americans have some form of periodontal disease, according to American Dental Hygiene Association. Regular visits to a dental Hygienist could detect early signs of the disease, as well as symptoms of many life-threatening illnesses which appear in the mouth.
