Dental Hygiene Month

October means national dental hygiene month! Perfectly timed to help us safely enjoy all the candy and sweet treats that Halloween brings us at the end of month.

Daily recommendations for taking care of your pearly whites include brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. You should brush for two minutes each time. That’s 30 seconds for each quadrant of your mouth, and if you have all your adult teeth, a little less than 4 seconds per tooth! Not so bad when you think of it like that.

For everything that your toothbrush can’t get to, there’s flossing, which you should also do on a daily basis.

The final step in taking care of your teeth is regularly seeing your dentist to make sure that your teeth and mouth are healthy and help prevent issues from forming or worsening.

Moose Pharmacy offers a large variety of dental hygiene products in its stores and through delivery to help you with taking care of your mouth. Including toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, floss, and other specialty oral care items pain, sensitivity, dry mouth and more.

Our pharmacists are also available to recommend a product to you for any dental or oral concerns you may have!

Bullet Points:

  • Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste for two minutes and floss
  • See your dentist every 6 months
  • Get your oral care products when you get your medications, in person or delivered!
