October 4, 2022

(Delta Dental of Michigan)

Beauty. Confidence. Conversations. Enjoyable Meals. Excellent dental health makes every aspect of our lives better. The dental hygienist helps us achieve superior dental health.

Registered Dental Hygienists (RDH) teach us the "Daily 4." This daily oral health regimen includes:

Brushing teeth twice and flossing

Vigorous rinsing with water after eating

Chewing xylitol sugar-free gum after eating, when possible

Rinsing with an anticavity rinse before bed

With tooth decay currently affecting 60-90 percent of schoolchildren, hygienists encourage parents to be outstanding oral care role models for their kids.
