During the busy winter months, it’s easy to let our little daily habits get lost in the shuffle. Unfortunately, when it comes to dental hygiene habits, long lapses can be very damaging to your teeth and gums. Make sure that you are consistent with your brushing and flossing habits this holiday season.

Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes each time. This can be difficult for some people, especially children. Maybe put a 2-minute timer on you gift wish list this year–some electric toothbrushes come with them built-in! If you are still have trouble, put on some of your favorite seasonal music and dance! This can be a great family time, as well. If you start brushing together this week, you can get an extra 3 hours of one-on-one time with your loved one before the end of 2017.

Toothbrushes need to be replaced every 3-4 months. Luckily, this is the perfect time of year to buy yourself and your family the toothbrushes you need! There are many fun styles and colors available. Consider giving them as small holiday gifts for your family. Everyone wants the gift of great teeth!
